Not even Apple’s powers can make Apple Pay an overnight hit

By about 6 hours ago.

As Google quickly found out with Google Wallet, making NFC-enabled mobile payments a staple feature of American consumer behavior is much easier said than done. Apple seemingly knows this, which is why it’s cautioning that its users shouldn’t expect to have Apple Pay accepted everywhere by every store right out of the gate. More →

Apple Ads Compilation

Here’s how Apple’s ads have evolved since the 1970s

Here’s how Apple’s ads have evolved since the 1970s

By about 9 hours ago.

Before actor John “And I’m a PC” Hodgman turned the PC into a laughable dope, before dancing silhouettes convinced you to buy an iPod and before George Orwell’s novel came to life in a 60-second spot during the 1984 Super Bowl, Apple made posters.

The history of Apple’s advertising campaigns is almost as interesting as the history of the products it advertises. On Sunday, The Loop’s Dave Mark stumbled upon an article from 2009 on Web Designer Depot which contains an extensive collection of Apple’s ads, from Apple II posters to commercials for the iPhone 3G.

Apple Earnings Q4 2014

Apple crushes estimates with record Q4 profit on $42.12B in revenue

Apple crushes estimates with record Q4 profit on $42.12B in revenue

By about 11 hours ago.

Apple shares have dipped along with the rest of the market over the past few days, though things certainly picked up during Monday’s session ahead of Apple’s fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report; shares closed at $99.76 on Monday, up 2.14%. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were on sale for just 12 days in the September quarter, but Wall Street is still expecting the launch to impact Apple’s results in a huge way. Of course, that notion obviously isn’t very far-fetched, considering Apple sold more than 10 million new iPhones just through the end of their first weekend on sale. More →
