According to two sources that have been reliable in the past, Apple will be holding its iPhone 5S launch event on June 20th. The rumor comes from Japanese periodical MacFan, which says they have learned from trusted sources that Apple is unveiling their next generation iPhone, alongside a cheaper model in June. Apple has launched their last two iPhone’s in the fall, but all of the models before that were launched in the summer.
Some fierce rivalries in the tech industry have played out over the last decade or so, and it has been fascinating to see how this plays out in the field of tech PR. Many of these struggles have led to much acrimony and lawsuits. In many ways though, consumers actually benefit from these rivalries as each main player tries to outdo each other in product and service offerings. Here are a couple of some of the most famous rivalries that have garnered much attention in tech PR.
The white Sapphire HD 7950 Mac Edition was spotted at CeBIT and now Sapphire is officially releasing the card. The card still is more or less a reference design with an 800MHz core clock and 3GB of GDDR5. As far as connections go you have 2x mini-DisplayPort, 1x HDMI and 1x dual-link DVI.
We are not at CeBIT this year, but we are picking up some of the news. One of the more interesting things we have seen is a white Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition. Of course that means this card is aimed at Apple’s Mac systems and Mac gamers. Apple already offers the Radeon HD 5870 or HD 5770 CrossFire on their Mac Pro. Besides the white design this card is still pretty much a reference design with a 800 MHz clock speed and 3GB of GDDR5.
Yesterday Apple announced quite a few different products, a new iPad, new Macbooks, new iMac, but the product that stole the show was the iPad Mini. The iPad Mini is of course a smaller version of the larger iPad. Small enough that you can hold it in just one hand Apple says. Packed with many new features and positioned to compete with the Google Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire it is a pretty impressive device. Are you in the market for an iPad? Or just a tablet in general? In this article we will tell you what the iPad Mini is all about so you can decide if it is the right tablet for you.
Apple today introduced iPad mini, a completely new iPad design that is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than the third generation iPad. The new iPad mini features a stunning 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD and iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance¹ and an incredible 10 hours of battery life―every inch an iPad, yet in a revolutionary design you can hold in one hand. Apple today also announced the fourth generation iPad featuring a gorgeous 9.7-inch Retina display, new Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera and ultrafast wireless performance. Both iPad mini and fourth generation iPad come with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features.
It seems like time goes by so quickly. It has already been a year since Apple founder Steve Jobs lost his fight with pancreatic cancer on October 5, 2011. While he is gone he is definitely not forgotten. Some say without his vision and business savvy we would have never seen personal computers. And no one can argue that Steve gave the best Keynote speeches and presentations. He had a way to captivate the audience unlike anyone else. In remembrance of Steve Apple has posted a short video on its homepage with sound bites and photos of Steve throughout the years.
Myself along with many others thought we would see an iPad Mini announcement the same day Apple announced the iPhone 5, but there was no announcement to be made. The Wall Street Journal posted an article yesterday saying that Asian suppliers have already started production on the new, smaller iPad. Now today the Australian blog Product Feedback have posted pictures and a video of Cygnett cases specially made for the iPad Mini. So we have to assume the iPad Mini is all but announced.
If you purchased a new iPhone 5, or upgraded your current iPhone to iOS 6 you noticed that your Maps apps is not longer a Google app, but Apple’s own. Many people are unhappy with these maps and really think that they should have stuck with Google. Now Apple is admitting that their Maps app is not up to snuff. In an open letter to the Apple faithful Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for not delivering a “World Class” product and suggested using competitors products from the likes of Bing, MapQuest, Google and Nokia, at least until Apple sorts this mess out.
