Despite some members the effort of some members of the tech press to claim that Apple is back on the path of innovation it would seem that many of the “new” features in the iPhone 5s are little more than refreshes of existing technology. One of the new features that everyone has been talking about is the new fingerprint scanner. Well it turns out that this too is just a slight improvement over existing technology. This comes out as the security has been broken by the Chaos Computer Club.

Smartphones--Powerful Business and Consumer Tools

“We were attracted to each other at the party, that was obvious! You're on your own for the night, that's also obvious... we're two adults.”Alex Forrest, “Fatal Attraction,” Paramount, 1987

The other evening I left the office, got about a half block and had to pull a U-turn to go back for my smartphone. I’ve left my billfold at the office a few times but never bothered to retrieve it … just drove a little more carefully the next morning. Sure, I have a tablet and ultrabook at home that I could have used; but jeezz, it’s my smartphone! It’s not like I’m addicted to it. It’s not like I sleep with it … silly house rules!
It’s no wonder the smartphone has taken off so rapidly around the globe. From almost anywhere, it enables you to be in touch with everyone, virtually anytime.
While the devices are subsidized by carriers in the Americas (O.K., there’s a “service contract” attached, but still…) few other countries started down that dark path by letting you buy your device anywhere and giving you contract breaks on the volume of usage. The device price limited some users’ choices; but for a growing number of folks, it was a justifiable investment.

In the first 24 hours of availability of iOS 7, this version was on 18% of Apple's mobile devices, according to analytics firm Chitika. The result is better than last year when iOS 6 in the same period grabbed 16% share. Statistics from Chitika are based on the measurement of Internet traffic in North America.

iPhone-4

It seems that Apple’s latest and greatest mobile operating system was shipped with a major flaw disguised as a feature. Shortly after the launch of iOS 7 there were the usual reports of bricked phones, problems reactivating the phone once it was installed etc. Most of these are common and more often than not can be traced to user software that is installed including many of the newer mobile device management applications that are in use. However when reports (and videos) started popping up showing how to bypass the lock screen without a password things were not so normal.

Ok, so we took some license with the comment from Mr. Cook, but he attempted jab at Microsoft and Nokia is something that he probably should not have said. According to Tim Cook Nokia failed because they could no longer innovate: “I think [Nokia] is a reminder to everyone in business that you have to keep innovating and that to not innovate is to die.” To some this comment is an indication that Apple is still in the game and working on new and exciting products, to others it is something of a joke.
