My first reaction when reading about the Finnish Prime Minister saying that Apple has killed off the Scandinavian county’s two biggest industries was “What is the second?” Of course, Apple had a big role to play in the downfall of Nokia (although it wasn’t the only contributing factor), but in my ignorance I couldn’t think of another industry Apple could affect so adversely.

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?”

Many people (read: ‘artists’) have tried incorporating everyday sounds into catchy, up beat songs – especially that of cellphones, as they are some of the most recognizable sounds in our lives. However, not many of them can pull that off successfully, mainly because they aren’t MetroGnome.

MetroGnome is a famed YouTube artist, perhaps best known for his remixes of famous songs; usually with an emphasis on pop culture, or songs and things trending at the moment.

One of his biggest hits was his amazing remix of the Breaking Bad theme song – complete with infectious guitar and everything. This time around, however, he turned to the very epitome of pop culture and technology – the iPhone.  (more…)

iPhone Air

For as long as Apple promises new iPhones, people from all across the globe will let their imaginations run and come up with their own iPhone concepts.

Some are great and very inspiring, while others are far fetched and well, downright ugly.

However, this new concept from designer Sam Beckett, falls under the ‘great and inspiring category.

Beckett’s concept is for a proposed iPhone Air. Now, there have been no official reports or claims of a possible iPhone Air in the pipeline, but considering the fact that Apple has launched an iPad Air along with it’s MacBook Air, the idea is not as far fetched.  (more…)

Oscar

As Oscar Pistorius’ trial date draws closer and closer, investigators have finally secured a meeting with Apple in California, to help them unlock Pistorius’ locked iPhone.

According to FOX news, investigators met with Apple at the headquarters in California yesterday, in an attempt to retrieve more evidence from Oscar’s iPhone.

Since last year, investigators have had somewhat of a headache with the locked iPhone. Oscar, of course, said that he could not remember the passcode to unlock his iPhone – thus the locked phone has been with investigators ever since, where they have tried numerous times to by-pass the security code.

However, unlocking the phone proved more difficult than initially thought, and investigators had to secure help from Apple officials in California. (more…)
