Jony Ive says Apple Watch is Flexible Idea and Slams Copy Devices
By Luke Jones on Saturday November 15, 2014

How many tech designers do you know? Do you know who designed the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for example, or even who had the influence for HTC to come up with the beauty that is the One M7/M8. These guys and gals may well create the mobile tech that you desire, but they are largely anonymous (isn't that how it should be?), but with Apple things are different.

By Luke Jones on Thursday November 13, 2014

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted a big drop off in iPad sales from the upcoming fourth quarter of this year to the first quarter of 2015. Of course, the fourth quarter of this year is the busy Holiday Season where iPad sales will soar, so with that in mind the first quarter is always comparatively slow. Nevertheless, Kuo is saying Apple's iPad sales will drop over 50% quarter to quarter.

By Luke Jones on Thursday November 13, 2014

Since Apple launched its first iPad we have been waiting for a slate that can truly match Cupertino's effort, but the truth is we have been left waiting. The so called iPad Killer has never really emerged despite an admittedly deep line up of quality Android and Windows alternatives. At least from a sales perspective the iPad reigns supreme, although there are some chinks in the armor.

Steve Wozniak: Apple should have launched large iPhone three years ago
By Luke Jones on Tuesday November 11, 2014

Steve Wozniak is the man who literally built Apple while Steve Jobs built the empire. However, he has not worked for the Cupertino based company for nearly thirty years, so he is not connected to success or failure of the brand aside from being a shareholder. Wozniak of course loves the company he helped create, but he is also one of the most honest people to tap up to discuss Apple and its products.

Forbes has released its annual list of the world's most valuable companies and (un)surprisingly the table is topped by Apple.

Apple Watch for Spring? Maybe Sooner
By Luke Jones on Monday November 03, 2014

When Apple launched the Apple Watch back at the start of September, the company announced that the device would not be available until 2015. That is a lot of waiting for a product that was dangled so enticingly in our faces, but Apple Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores Angela Ahrendts has now put a more concrete time on when the smartwatch will land. She said in a video message to employees that the device will be arriving in spring next year.

Over 39 million iPhone units sold through the last quarter helped Apple to bumper financial results while the company's shares have been trading at all-time highs.

By Luke Jones on Saturday October 25, 2014

Tim Cook's four day visit to China where he has tried to smooth relationships with authorities and pave the way for further Apple growth in the country has come to an end.

Apple turns corner in China
By Luke Jones on Thursday October 23, 2014

Apple has turned a corner in China and in many ways has managed to replicate its global model in the country. The result of that, according to CEO Tim Cook, is that Apple is now "investing like crazy" in China and through his latest visit to Beijing he said just what that meant. Cook confirmed that Cupertino plans to open 25 new retail spaces within Greater China (Hong Kong and Taiwan included) over the next two years.
