Before I get started, Your probably wondering what the hell am I trying to describe in the picture above.
The picture above shows a picture being taken on an iPhone device. Immediately (if enabled) iCloud will upload it to your iCloud account. Then it will sync with your iCloud enabled device. Not only is this pictures, iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, calendars, documents, and more.
This is really easy to enable!
The Program installed on the computer,
In this image it shows I have used no GB.
NOTE: iCloud gives you an amount of 5GB (you can buy more storage)
I don’t use outlook but you can sync Mail,Contacts,Calenders and Tasks.
If you don’t have outlook you can only sync photos and and bookmarks.
NOTE: Mac users can use the “mail” application
The apps you use every day are ready for iCloud.
When you update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 5, your favorite Apple apps become seamlessly integrated with iCloud. Just like that. So all your content and information is available and up to date, no matter which device you’re using.
iTunes in the Cloud
Download your music whenever and wherever you want it.
Automatically download new photos to all your devices.
Documents in the Cloud
View and edit the same document on whichever device you’re using.
Apps, Books, and Backup
Your content. Stored, backed up, and with you wherever you are.
According to the U.S. Treasury Deptment, the U.S. Government had a cash balance Wednesday of $73.8 billion, it’s less than what Steve Jobs has lying around. Apple had a big $76.2 billion in cash on Wednsday. Unlike the U.S. government, Apple rolls in more money than it spends.
Apple may be setting record with their iPhone and iPad products, but the ipod is bringing in bad results. They sold a mere 7.5 million ipods last quarter. Unit sales have dropped 20%.
Why is this that the ipod is dropping down in sales? im a happy ipod owner and im sure a lot of you are. So, why the sudden decrease? There could be several reasons why.
Firstly, because they have either none or little moving parts in them, they are getting broken less and so are keeping for longer, so people wont buy a new iPod until it breaks. Also, a lot of people allready own a smartphone of some sort and all their music is on there, so there is no need for a seperate music device like an ipod. It could also be the cost of them. A 2gb shuffle costs around £40 but if you want more memory, you may have to pay up to £130 or even more. if you want an ipod touch with a decent memory capacity, youre looking at about £250+. thats almost iphone teritory.
Its not like nobody wants one, they own almost 70% of the mp3 market. Its more down to apple being very good at what they make. we could see this change when iCloud is released where you can wirelessly push music to other devices, but right now, the iPod line is going to not bring much profit to the business.
With September quickly approaching there is new rumours and pictures floating around the web. The first picture shows a man clutching his iPhone on a train. The person who took this picture said:” The man was a Apple employee on a train from San Francisco”. Also he said that his iPhone looked different and in a case to hide its shape. The next two pictures are showing the cheaper iPhone – it looks exactly like the iPhone 4 we have now but it has plastic on the front and back. This makes the phone cheaper to make and lighter.
Although this is all well and good I think the cheaper iPhone because its supposedly made out of plastic – this will ruin the sturdy feel of the iPhone and lose its quality. This cheaper iPhone is supposedly going to be announced along with the new iPhone.
Apple have recently sold 20.3 million iPhones over the quarter and 9.25 million iPads. This is a massive increase in their last quarter sales. Also, their line of computers have had a large increase of sales too. This means more people are switching to apple. It just seems like their clean and simplistic looks but great operating systems and hardware just win people over. i am one of them and have owned countless apple products too.
Because of this, it helped apple overtake the giants of the smartphone market Nokia and Samsung to be the largest seller of smartphones. This is great to say that they really only have 1 line of phones out there, the iPhone, unlike the others who have countless models of smartphones and tablets.
This isnt the same all over the world as in some places, android phones are being sold faster than iOS devices, but this is down to more decives using many android opperating systems, or with a skin (like HTC sense) being put over it. But this is a great accomplishment by apple.
Below is a picture/model of the iPhone 5 case… It looks very alike with the current iPhone 3GS case… This is very unlike the iPhone 4 cases. From my perspective Apple is turning back to the 3GS look
Lets look at the differences,
You will notice a larger, edge-to-edge display for more viewing and better resolution. Do you think this is plausible? It may feel like a good idea to have the most screen space possible but putting it so close to the edge sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I can see so many of these screens being cracked with the slightest fall. If this screen rumor is true, hopefully Apple will take this to heart and make a very durable screen.
The two other things you may notice from a quick glace is that the home button is made larger and the back of the device is slight curved, like the iPad 2. Although the curved back seems like a great idea and will make it feel right for holding, why make the home button larger? I thought the reason behind the iPhone was to eliminate most of the button use so why make the button larger? I truly believe they should keep it the same or completely eliminate it with the new gestures iOS 5 has.
What do you think about the case?
A handsome thick piece of solid walnut with either a brushed aluminum or glossy resin face plate. The ultimate mix of modern design and convenience. The perfect mate to my already perfect iPhone. You will simply start your clock app of choice and slide your phone into the fully enclosed sleeve and it will seamlessly dock and begin to charge, giving you the restful sleep you deserve. Or maybe you’ll set it up on your desk to show slides of the family while you’re at work? Or use it as a mini flat screen to catch up on your shows?
You can pre-order yours at Kickstarter for $65 and $55, respectively.
Apple zoomed through growing competition from smartphones and tablets running on Google Inc.’s Android operating system, as the company more than doubled its quarterly earnings and surging revenues on its strong sales of its iPhone and iPad.
Apple’s quarterly profit rose to $7.31 billion for its third quarter, up from $3.25 billion a year earlier. Revenue soared 82% to $28.57 billion. Gross margins went up to 41.7% from 39.1% a year ago.
The results fueled with the stock up 4.8% to $395.34, after ending in 4 p.m. trading at $376.85.
Damn It I knew I should have bought stock 🙂
