Here's what I'd like to see.
Here's a sight that's become familiar for Apple events of late: colors.
Apple is decorating the windows of the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco ahead of a special media event it has planned for next Tuesday. The design, first revealed in images sent to blog site MacRumors, is a deluge of autumn leaves amidst a single Apple logo. It matches the pattern on invitations the company sent out to media outlets this week.
The October 22 event is expected to bring a variety of announcements, including new models of the iPad and iPad Mini, updates on Macs, … Read more
October 22 is Apple's big chance to show off what's expected to be the last batch of products for the year.
A little more than a month after releasing its latest pair of iPhones, Tuesday's event -- the invitations for which proclaim "We still have a lot to cover" -- should bring new versions of the iPad, as well as updated Macs and a price and release date for OS X Mavericks.
Apple is holding its iPad event on October 22, so all the rumors will finally be put to rest. The latest, which I think will come true, is that the iPad 5 will have a Touch ID sensor, just like the iPhone 5S. A recent video from Unbox Therapy also suggests that the next-gen iPad will incorporate this touch sensor security.
I mean, why wouldn't it? It seems to be a novel idea on the iPhone 5S, and it sure does make buying things in the App Store a bit faster.
Also this week, a new report says that … Read more
Apple's iPhone 5S is significantly outpacing the iPhone 5C in sales, and at least one analyst believes that trend will continue into the holiday season.
The iPhone 5S is outselling the iPhone 5C at a ratio of 2.5-to-1, Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley wrote in a note to investors on Wednesday. That news is obviously good for Apple, which generates more revenue on the iPhone 5S than iPhone 5C, but it also cements Walkley's belief that Apple will sell 52.5 million iPhones during the last quarter of the year.
The first quarter of 2014 should also … Read more
Apple's "very busy" fall season of product launches is in full swing. The company just sent out invites for a news event next week, where new iPads and Macs are expected.
The invite says only, "We still have a lot to cover," and has colorful leaves from the Apple logo.
The press conference will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, and begins at 10 a.m. PT. CNET will be there to bring you all the news, live. Stay tuned for more details on how to watch. … Read more
The iPad 5 will offer the same Touch ID fingerprint sensor found in the iPhone 5S, at least if an image leaked by a Chinese blog site is legit.
Offered by Chinese site Chinese site ctechcn.com, the image shows what purports to be the fifth-generation iPad with a home button that looks just like the one on the 5S. That home button incorporates Apple's Touch ID sensor, which allows users to unlock their device via fingerprint recognition.
A recent video from Unbox Therapy suggests that the Touch ID sensor from an iPhone 5S would fit perfectly into the … Read more
KGI Securities has offered a veritable data dump of speculation on upcoming Apple products, including a higher-resolution iPad, a low-cost iMac, and an iPad Mini Retina.
Pixel-packing iPad 6: Forget the iPad 5 -- KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is talking iPad 6. He anticipates a 9.7-inch iPad with a pixel density that exceeds today's iPad by 30 percent to 40 percent, as reported Saturday by MacRumors and other Apple blogs.
That's considerable, as the iPad 4 already has a pretty high pixel density of 264 pixels per inch. (The iPad 5 is expected to maintain that … Read more
It's 5:00 a.m., and Bill Atkinson makes his way downstairs to begin his daily routine of, as he calls it, milking the cow. Not of the bovine species, of course. In this instance, it's PhotoCard, a free iOS app that makes postcards from digital photos and sends them via e-mail or in printed form via the US Postal Service.
The morning milking begins as Atkinson takes command of his fully-loaded Mac Pro in his home office, surrounded by books on programming languages and fine art prints of his photography. He scans his inbox for incoming orders, … Read more
Hey, America, have you got a second? We need to talk. It turns out we're not doing so well in literacy and math compared with most of the developed countries in the world. We also may not be as knowledgeable about our world as we think we are.
According to this article in the New York Times, a recent study out of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) puts the USA well behind most developed countries in the world in basic math skills, literacy, and working with technology.
Whether the problem is standardized testing, increasing poverty rates, … Read more
