apple park: a masterpiece of architecture

Steve Jobs might have passed away nearly six years ago, but his influence on Apple - and, by extension, the tech industry - has long lingered. A fantastic case in point is Apple Park - the Cupertino firm’s new “spaceship” corporate headquarters at which the “iPhone 8” - or “iPhone Edition,” as it could be called - is expected to be officially announced. Jobs was heavily influential on its design, which ties together many of the company’s firmly-held values. PREPARATIONS FOR A SPACESHIP’S ARRIVAL Jobs’ last public appearance before his death was in July 2011 - when, at a meeting with Cupertino City Council, he argued a case for the new headquarters. While construction of the premises did not start until 2013, Jobs had worked on the concept years before his death.…

deep learning: how machines are taking over

In last week’s issue, we saw just how deep learning could be beneficial in a whole range of uses. Deep learning, the idea that a machine will think for itself when given access to data, rather than having to be fed information, enables a machine to learn from its mistakes and grow. It’s not a new concept, but in recent years, some of the world’s biggest companies, including Google and Apple, have begun to exploit the technology to improve their operations. Elements of deep learning are already being used by Apple, with its personal assistant Siri learning from your actions and questions to develop an idea of who you are and what you like. Further afield, deep learning could be used for things like medicine and healthcare, potentially saving billions of…

how to survive digital era of love

While it’s true that the prevalence of dating apps in today’s society is helping to make dating more efficient, does this mean that there has been an influx of successful, long-lasting relationships or simply more people who’ve grown dissatisfied with their current situation? THE TECHNOSEXUAL ERA Right now, we are in a Technosexual Era. The term technosexual is used to define someone who prefers technology over an actual human relationship and is often put in place to demean an individual who places an interest in technology but does not have a romantic partner. These people, who are usually men, often face stereotypes such as social awkwardness, unattractiveness, and loneliness. However, modern sex technology that allows the user to customize their experience has begun to combat the stereotype that it is single, lonely men…

iphone x unboxing, hands-on & setup

Apple’s quantum leap of an iPhone, the iPhone X, has been officially released to retail... though whether you are able to get your own hands on it is a very different matter. In fact, pre-orders sold out within minutes of becoming available on Friday, October 27 - and, while Apple had indicated that there would be supply at its retail stores from November 3, that supply could very easily have gone by the time you read this. Still, the iPhone X has already been tested by many YouTubers. A TANTALISING - IF ALSO ILLICIT - VIDEO You’ve probably already seen quite a few of the iPhone X “hands-on” videos that appeared shortly after the September launch event, at which invited members of the press were able to put the handset through its…

apple music laying the ground for future hit tv

If you’ve long been enjoying listening to the streaming service Apple Music, you are in very good company. Last month, Apple revealed to Billboard that it has amassed “well over 30 million paying subscribers”. That’s a noticeable increase from the 27 million figure that Apple reported at WWDC in June - and, unlike arch-rival Spotify, Apple Music is on solid financial ground. However, there has been growing evidence of Apple’s belief that there remains much room for improvement. Apple Music head Jimmy Iovine told Billboard: “I don’t believe that what exists right now is enough.” He added: “Just because we’re adding millions of subscribers and the old catalog numbers are going up, that’s not the trick. That’s just not going to hold.” He is clearly setting his sights high - especially…
