Did Apple copy the Swiss Federal Railways clock?

News 3d Apple Logo 102

Apple, the big company that likes to brag about their “originality” and accuse everybody else of stealing their ideas, apparently stole something from Switzerland. This is the country famous for inventing clocks and watches, and not just any kind of it, but truly of the highest quality and with beautiful design. Now, the Swiss Federal Railways have accused Apple that of copying their official railway clock.

Where is Apple To Go After the iPhone 5?

tim cook 0115

For about the last four months we have been talking about the decline of Apple. We are not saying that they are going to die, or go bankrupt or anything like that, but we are saying that they are no longer going to be the company that they once were. There are many reasons for this that we have covered including a lack of real innovation, a closed eco system, and one of the biggest ones; Tim Cook as CEO. To many this one may come as a surprise, but it is not that much of one really. Tim Cook is a businessman first and foremost. He was the one that proposed moving production and warehousing outside the US. He also has been instrumental in making other very business oriented decisions. However, while Tim Cook is good at running the day-to-day operations of a company, he is not the guy you want in charge at a place like Apple.

Apple has filed a patent on motion based charging, that would be working on the principles of electromagnetic induction. In theory that would mean that users can simply charge their phones while walking or making any sort of movement that will cause the induction process to start making electricity and charge the battery. Theoretically is means you would never run out of battery as long as you continue moving. This could be serious competition to NFC that comes with new smartphones today; maybe it would even surpass it. However, this is not as simple as it sounds. To cause induction you need a copper coil and a magnet that will move inside of it. If you consider that you need to create this inside the iPhone you have to wonder where on earth will they put it?

Today Samsung announced some great news. Their new 5.5-inch device, the Note II, will be coming to all major US carriers soon. The new Note will be available in November, and will launch on pretty much same the carriers as its smaller brother the Galaxy S3 did. So far there have been leaks about Verizon's Note II and also some screenshots have confirmed that it will be available on T-Mobile too. That is big turnaround, since the first Note was available exclusively on AT&T in the US. Samsung officially confirmed that it will be available on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, The Now Network and US Cellular by mid-November.

Today Apple announced that they have received over 2 million preorders for the iPhone 5 in just 24 hours. This is twice as many as for the iPhone 4S. Apple's expectations were not so big so the preorders exceeded the initial supply. The first batch of devices will be delivered on September 21, while rest will be shipped in October. It looks like their promotions are giving fruit as this is a new preorder record for Apple. Since the first iPhone hit the market, their preorder were constantly increasing with every new model.

So if you are still nervous about the new iPhone, and want to buy it ASAP here are the official prices of unlocked models. 16GB version will go for $649, 32GB one for $749 and last one 64GB for $849. All of the devices are unlocked so you won’t have to sign a 1 or 2 year contract with any carriers. This is desirable if you want to swap to another network in case they just popped up a new super attractive offering. Also this means that you will be able to use iPhone on the T-mobile network who is working on deploying the 1900 MHz spectrum which should help iPhone achieve some of the fastest mobile broadband speeds.

Today was supposed to be Apple’s big day in the sun yet from most of the coverage on the internet there is very little truly new in the iPhone 5. Even Apple’s stock did not move much after the new phone was announced this was something that many analysts predicted might happen if the new iPhone did not have compelling features. Right now taking a look at Apple’s iPhone 5 all you are getting is a new OS (iOS 6) and a new connector that is actually pretty cool. However outside of that you are not getting much to be happy about we have already covered the specifications on the new iPhone, but now let’s see what these new specifications mean in the real world and to the consumer.

iPhone-5-logo

Today Apple had their big press conference and it was really big. They announced almost all they could, we will get a new iPhone, new iPod Touch, new iPod nano, new connector and new earphones. In this article we will focus on the main star, the iPhone 5. Even though there were many rumors that Samsung will sue them over LTE patents they have released it with LTE support and also a new A6 chipset, previous iPhone used the A5. The back panel is replaced with sheet of anodized aluminum, and the whole device is the slimmest so far, the width stayed the same but it did gain some length.

Is this the new iPhone connector?

12 5

Yesterday, pictures of what is apparently the new iPhone connector leaked to the internet. The new connector looks very similar to micro USB, especially in size. Pictures were leaked on French tech blog site NowhereElse.fr. While the old connector had 30 pins it was rumored that the new one will have just 19, but from the pictures we can see that it is only 8 or 9 pins if we consider the shell as one. Tomorrow it is expected that Apple will release new iPhone, but also several new iPods all are expected to feature a new dock connector.
