APPLE's BIGGEST THREAT: THEMSELVES

It has often been said that if you achieve something extraordinary, there will always be copycats. Just ask Elvis, MJ, or AOL. Nevertheless, Apple must outdo itself in order to woo most of the world to purchase it's new design. Otherwise the only buyers will be A) those due for an upgrade (me, with my beloved 3GS) and B) those with an attraction to the latest and greatest (also me). Yahoo's Biz & Finance geniuses explain.

WHY YOU MAY NOT GET TO SEE YOUR FACEBOOK TIMELINE TODAY

Mark Zuckerburg's dream of an open world once again finds him in court. THIS TIME, History-buff website TIMELINES.com is upset that Facebook is going to phase them out. I doubt that, but whatever. Anyway, refer to my earlier post about HOW TO VIEW YOUR FACEBOOK TIMELINE RIGHT NOW if you want your FB Timeline today (if you haven't already done so). Read the full-length summary of the shenanigans HERE.

THE APPLE STORE IS DOWN!

As of now, this is unfortunately all that I have been able to procure concerning Apple's Media Event. Perhaps it won't be until 1 or 2pm when we finally get a glimpse of what everyone hopes to see.

NEVERTHELESS, THE APPLE STORE IS OFFICIALLY DOWN.

SOMETHING BIG, THIS WAY COMES.

GET READY.

CEO TIM COOK HASN'T YET TAKEN STAGE; "iPhone 4S" TO HIT JAPAN OCT.14

Tim Cook hasn't taken the stage yet. Apparently though, an Apple retail store in Japan has posted October 14 as the date of the "iPhone 4S" arrival on it's website.

APPLE UPDATE: TODAY IS ABOUT INTEGRITY

From Tim Cook, via Engadget:

1:04PM "Today we're going to be learning about innovations in software and hardware, and the integration of all of these into a "powerful yet simple integrated experience."

There's another 10 live-blog uodates from Engadget w/ Tim taking people through the history... "This is where the first iPod was built... MacBook Air... revolutionizing" how we do life, etc.

The focus today looks to be about SOFTWARE & HARDWARE INTEGRITY (integrity meaning INTEGRation). IN SHORT: HARDER. BETTER. FASTER. STRONGER.

And all around SIMPLER.

APPLE'S MEDIA EVENT: NEW FEATURES SO FAR

So far, Scott Forsall is focysing on the new features availabke in iOS5. Many have been pre-viewed since Apple's LAST big announcement... but apparently there's more.


NEWSTAND (basically a seperate Bookshelf for your Periodicals). Complete w/ BACKGROUND UPLOADING.

POSTCARDS.
Create your own postcards. Apple will mail postcards for you for a modest fee of about $2-$4.99.

CLOUD SERVICES FOR E-MAIL/CONTACTS/CALENDER.

iMESSAGE. Bbm for iPhone basically.

Fun Facts

"1:20 pm:  Over 80 percent of the hospitals in the US are now testing or piloting iPad."

"1:20 pm: A 40 pound flight book replaced by a single iPad, making things more efficient." Scott Forsall, Apple (via Endgadget)

40 LBS -- that's close to my max curl weight.

 

A5 DUAL-CORE iPHONE 4S

"What's this? The second coming of the iPhone 4? Sure enough, Tim Cook just pulled the covers off of the hotly-anticipated iPhone 4S here in Cupertino, making 2011 the first year in the company's current stint in the smartphone business that it chose to launch three new handsets (Verizon's CDMA iPhone 4 included, of course). On the outside the 4S looks exactly like its predecessor, but on the inside it's "all new." Apple has jammed a dual-core A5 CPU inside alongside a new dual-core GPU that supposedly boosts graphics performance by up to 7x. Up front is the same Retina display we've all come to know and love, and a glass back. That antenna around the sides (which caused many users so much trouble) has been revamped and can intelligently switch between two different sets of anntenae on the fly to avoid dropping calls based on how you hold it.".
