Apple Unveils Revolution To The Way Your Iphone And Ipad Looks:

Recommended Posts

It's funny how people pop up to say everything Apple does now looks like or has been previously done by Android.

And then when you go and check out Google's OS it's still a messy mishmash.

You can bet your life Samsung are analysing these ios7 videos to make their fork of Android work just like it.

I think that's where look/feel are top of Apple's agenda, whereas functionality and optionality, even tho it's messy, is the paradigm behind most android forks - I'll avoid getting all fanboy-ish and just say it's good we've got the choice of platforms

'Apple has unveiled one of the biggest gambles in its history with a radical overhaul of its iOS software.

What, did they make it even easier for the NSA to spy all iphone users? :rolleyes:

Why is this thread in the main forum?? This belongs into off-topic!

You seem to be unaware of the fact that the reason young people can't afford houses is because they spend so much money on IPhones and iPads. This is more relevant than most of the threads on here. ;)

TRUE. Most of them that work have a nice disposable income to spend on latest gadgets.

But Ianything is not the agenda at the moment.

Most are planning which one to get : PS4 or XBox1

It's all been previously done by someone.

Apple are simply very good at marketing other peoples ideas.

When other companies started to get better at marketing, apple responded by suing everyone in US based apple-friendly courts.

Apple have an appalling record when it comes to their legal behaviour. iTunes for examples. Apple were expressly forbidden from having ANY involvement in the music industry as part of the trademark settlement with Apple Music corp. Didn't stop them though.

I fully expect apple to be back to being a small company making niche computers again in 5 years.

Apple are pooched, lost 1/3 of their worth in less than the past year.

They also jumped a 1/3 of their value between Jan 2012 and Jul 2012. They launched an iPad 3 and a update to their mac book pro range during that time. Some of the updates were good, but I wouldn't say they were add a 3rd to the value of the company good.

People just got greedy and thought they would get access to Apples bank accounts once Jobs was gone and you got a bubble. Doesn't mean the stock is worthless or on the way out, just some muppets thought they were ridding a cash cow that had seen nothing but growth over the last 13 years and was about to .... money, so paid over the odds. Incidentally Apple did pay a dividend for the first time recently which *cough* helped...

Still if you had bought apple stock in 2000 (Started at 25 and fell to 7.28 a share over the year) and sold it today you'd be quids in as they are currently over 400 a share. Picking on someone like B sky B over the same period (seeing as people spend money on ipods and sky instead or mortgages), they used to be 1116 and fell to 869 in 2000 and are currently 773, so a pretty bad return over 13 years.... Over the same period an average house went from £116k to £156k (squinting at the graph on the front page of the site).

Not defending Apple here, but certain Asian Pacific countries (and I'll chuck in google here) aren't exactly renowned for respecting intellectual property...

much of apple's intellectual "property" deserves no respect. eg.

Well if you want to make money from your ideas you have to either patent them or make them a trade secret. I was in a meeting a while ago at work (not any of the companies already mentioned in this thread) where people were using a 3rd party product but perceived it as a potentially new and innovative twist and wanted to patent it. No technology development was done, just applying it in a different way. To me it was nuts, and akin to using email for personal use instead of for business or using a bicycle for fun, rather than getting from A to B. It really was just changing the usage context of an existing implementation owned by someone else. But people do try a patent these things.

Was it the idea of using the boot of your car as a storage cupboard because your Barratt house doesn't have room for any?
