New Samsung ad

Less than 48-hours after Apple introduced the world to the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung has released a series of ads that, once again, mocks the competition.

Staying true to their advertising form, Samsung’s new ads unashamedly bashes almost everything that happened at Apple’s event on Tuesday. From the new iPhones to the watch and even the event itself – Samsung shows no signs of diverting from their mocking advertising formula.

The ads, which were released as a playlist entitled ‘It Doesn’t Take a Genius’ on YouTube yesterday, feature two guys in blue shirts – seemingly portraying Apple Store employees. It also has an accompanying hashtag; #NoteTheDifference.

The two guys are shown discussing Apple’s new devices as well as the keynote address.  (more…)

With hype starting to die down after the Apple Live launch event on Tuesday, we have all had some time to digest what has been announced and what it means to the market.

The highly anticipated iPhone 6 has been launched and Apple have finally embraced the worldwide trend of ever bigger smartphones. That got me thinking: “How far has the iPhone come since the original?”

Let us start with the first of its kind, the original iPhone. (more…)

With the launch of Apple’s smartwatch, called the Apple Watch, many people think it’s the smartwatch we have all been waiting for. While we may or may not agree (until we get our hands on it), the device is very Apple-esque.

There are a couple of companies jumping onto the bandwagon and it seems like we may be seeing some interesting apps on the Apple Watch that hasn’t been mentioned for Android Wear or any other wearable platform. Let’s take a look at a couple of them. (more…)

Apple Pay – All you need to know

Apple Pay

Apple really hit it out of the park with their event last night. Along with finally announcing the much anticipated iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as the swoon-worthy Apple Watch, the company also announced an all new service that will allow for mobile payments called Apple Pay.

Apple Pay is a mobile payment platform, that will in essence, allow you to make payments straight from your iPhone through the Apple Pay service.

The main goal with Apple Pay, as Tim Cook announced last night, is to make credit and debit card payments more secure – and of course easier and more efficient.

Cook started by saying that their goal is to eliminate the ‘fairly antiquated’ process of paying by card. He emphasized the fact that current credit or debit card payments are not as secure as we think. Magnetic strip cards are outdated and highly susceptible to fraud. While most of us have a chip card nowadays, these are also not as secure as they should be.

That is why the safest, most secure and most streamlined way of paying is mobile payments. As Cook said, with the current way of paying with physical credit cards, we are “totally reliant on exposed numbers”.

Apple Pay incorporates NFC technology to make the payments more secure. But besides the inner workings of Apple Pay, how it works (in layman’s terms to you and me) is quite simple.  (more…)

We were absolutely ecstatic to hear those immortal word once again: “One more thing…”

Expectation are always high when Apple dives into a new market segment, and this time was no different. What wasn’t expected however, was the name Apple chose for the device. It’s called the Apple Watch – no iWatch monikers here. (more…)

U2 AppleOK, so everybody can breath again. Apple day is over, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has been announced alongside the really good looking Apple Watch. You have to say since the passing of Steve Jobs, the annual Apple event has lost some of its charm and excitement. Not that Tim Cook isn’t good at hosting the show, he just isn’t Steve Jobs. So to make things more exciting and to cap of last night’s evening Apple had “one more thing” to share with the audience, U2, and they came bearing gifts… (more…)
