how apple reinvents its core business to keep growing

Apple’s Q3 2019 financial results caused a bit of a hubbub because iPhone revenue was—for the first time in seven years—less than half of Apple’s overall revenue. The cause is a slowdown in iPhone sales combined with dramatic growth in two other areas: wearables and services. But this is hardly the first time Apple has experienced a major change in the shape of its business. In fact, Apple is a company that’s rarely stood still in terms of its evolution. To prove the point, let’s step through 20 years of Apple’s business, five years at a time. 1999: THE MAC COMEBACK Steve Jobs came back to Apple in 1997 and we all know what happened next. But that transformation took a while. Look at a sample quarter from twenty years ago—the fourth fiscal quarter…

wow classic is a step back in time—and a step back for world of warcraft

Few of us ever get a chance to start over from scratch, but recently World of Warcraft players got exactly that with the launch of WoW Classic. Blizzard Entertainment’s “newest” game is essentially the popular massive multiplayer online roleplaying game exactly as it played in 2004, right down to molasses-paced quest text, a dearth of quest markers, and enemies so tough that you feel compelled to group up with other players to beat them. Together, features like these made World of Warcraft’s earliest incarnation more social than its current form, and almost 15 years ago they helped lay the foundation for some of the most enduring friendships of my life. Yet it’s important to remember that Classic isn’t a hard reset—a reboot that gives us a truly new game with wildly different…

malwarebytes premium: a fast, efficient security program with an unusual approach

Malwarebytes began life as a complement to antivirus suites. It was a backstop to catch and remove particularly troublesome malware that your primary security program couldn’t. That all changed in December 2016 when the company announced its paid version, Malwarebytes Premium, was capable enough to be your primary security program. “With the launch of Malwarebytes 3.0, we are confident that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus,” the company said in a blog post. Malwarebytes comes in two flavors. The first is the free version that is only capable of removing malware infections during a scan. Upgrade to Malwarebytes Premium at an annual cost of $40 for a single device or $60 for 10 devices, and it adds real-time protection, adware and unwanted program blocking, automatic updates, and scan scheduling. Malwarebytes isn’t…

traveling with apple tech: what soars, what falls flat

Travel has a way of opening your eyes to new possibilities. For the last three weeks, I’ve been away from home, spending time in a few European countries. During this trip, I found myself thinking about the different ways that we use technology when we’re outside of our daily routine, and how it brings to light not only things that work well, but also the areas where there’s still a decent amount of friction. As I’ve been making the rounds, I’ve made note of a few places where I think Apple technologies have worked particularly well, as well as where there’s some room for improvement. CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS If this trip has drilled home one thing, it’s that contactless payments are king. Apple Pay has been a godsend—it’s even easier than digging out your…

apple is finally sending ‘genuine’ parts to independent repair shops to fix broken iphones

Ahead of the upcoming launch of the iPhone 11, Apple has announced a new program that might let you keep your out-of-warranty iPhone a little longer. Instead of taking your broken iPhone to a high-priced Apple Genius or roll the dice with third-party parts, you’ll now be able to go to an independent repair shop and get the same high-quality parts that you’d get from the Apple Store. That’s a big change. Previously, Apple kept its tools under lock and key, but under the new program, it’s promising “the same genuine parts, tools, training, repair manuals and diagnostics” as an Apple Authorized Service Provider. The program is limited to out-of-warranty iPhone repairs at launch. That means repair shops big and small will be able to take advantage of the new program without…

why you should get an apple pencil even if you don’t draw

Apple’s ads tend to imply that you need to be some kind of artist if you want to buy an Apple Pencil, but it’s great for plenty of other things, even if those things don’t look so hot in the latest TV spot out of Cupertino. Not everyone needs to use an Apple Pencil, but you’ll get a lot of use out of one if you frequently find yourself in the situations we discuss here. A few pointers before we begin. First, as a rule of thumb, if you’ve never found yourself thinking that some iPad activity would be easier if you only had a pen, you probably don’t need an Apple Pencil. Second, there’s a whole range of cheap styluses you can use with an iPad instead of an Apple…
