untapped potential

Sometimes I think we take this whole tech business for granted. With cell phones that seem to be in the hands of almost every person you come across on the street, I wonder: do those same people ever stop and think what process the human race had to go through to get that shiny, always–on gadget in their hands? I imagine the vast majority of people wouldn’t have a clue, and in fairness, my own knowledge is pretty spotty. Which is why this issue’s feature about the origins of the Mac is such an important read, because it gives us an insight into how this remarkable machine came to fruition, and of course we all know it’s also the precursor to the iPhone and iPad — which for many of…

disappointing iphone sales dent apple

FOR SEVERAL YEARS, after every new model of iPhone, commentators have claimed sales failed to meet expectations. That’s never been true… until now. Apple has stopped releasing unit numbers, but revenue from iPhone sales fell by some 14 per cent in the last financial quarter, leading to a shock earnings warning.On January 2, Apple issued a warning to investors revising its projections for the financial quarter ending December 31 ahead of the final figures (which have not yet been released at time of writing). Revenue for the quarter would come in at around $84bn, it said, substantially below its November projection of $89bn–$93bn (from which Wall Street had reached a “consensus” figure of $91bn). Analysts pointed out that this was the first time Apple missed its projections since the March…

is apple’s walled garden opening up?

APPLE HAS ALREADY made Apple Music available on Android, and now it’s streaming to Amazon’s Echo speakers too.You first need to enable a new Apple Music skill in the Alexa app, then link your account. You’ll then be able to ask Alexa to play a song, an artist, and any playlist made by Apple Music’s editors available on the service, as well as any of the curated radio stations or Apple’s digital radio station Beats 1.According to Amazon, playing music is one of the most popular requests made to its Alexa voice assistant on Echo speakers. For now, though, it seems that Apple Music is available only in the US. It is also not yet clear whether the skill works on third–party Alexa–compatible speakers, such as those from Sonos and…

what the heck?

THE IPHONE XS and XS Max are ‘splash, water, and dust resistant’ to IP68 — Apple’s highest ever rating. ‘IP’ stands for ‘ingress protection’ as defined in IEC standard 60529. What do those IP numbers mean?You might think you could find out by reading the standard, but a licensed copy will cost you upwards of $250. To summarize, there are always two digits, although one can be replaced by an X, and they indicate conformity with conditions laid down by the IEC, as assessed by the manufacturer.The first digit refers to protection from ‘solid particles’. A 5 means not enough dust can get in to stop things working, while 6 means nothing gets inside even after blowing dust at the product for up to eight hours. ‘Inside’ doesn’t include features…
