Apple CEO Tim Cook Criticism

The one thing that Tim Cook really needs to do better

The one thing that Tim Cook really needs to do better

Unlike a lot of pundits and analysts, I actually think Tim Cook has done a very good job of running Apple. The company is still insanely profitable and Apple customers’ loyalty has shown no signs of waning. Granted, he’s not Steve Jobs, but that’s not a bad thing because he’s shown that he’s very skilled at getting a bunch of very talented people with very big egos to work together effectively as a team — not an easy feat when you consider how a post-Jobs Apple could have easily turned into one giant turf war.

How to fix one of iOS 7.1’s most annoying bugs

IOS 7.1 was a fantastic update for Apple’s mobile operating system, bringing with it plenty of bug fixes and refinements that were absent in the initial iOS 7 update. Apple’s huge iOS 7 release, as you’ll surely recall, was all about renovating the look of the iOS platform, and it was a bit raw when it first launched. There are still some annoying bugs that crept through in the latest version of iOS 7.1, however, and now there’s a simple fix for one of the most annoying ones out there. More →

Apple may release an all-new ‘mid-2014′ 27-inch iMac soon

Following a previous accidental mention on Tuesday of an updated iMac Mini on Apple’s website, the company has apparently spilled the proverbial beans on another upcoming product that should have been kept under wraps. French site ConsoMac has discovered a mid-2014 iMac mention on Apple’s site in a chart detailing what kind of Windows versions Apple’s iMacs support, just as was the case with the 2014 iMac mini refresh.

iPhone Tilt Gestures

New app brings Fire phone’s tilt gesture controls to your iPhone

New app brings Fire phone’s tilt gesture controls to your iPhone

Thanks to our exclusive reporting earlier this year, there was absolutely nothing about Amazon’s Fire phone that came as a surprise — including the public’s reaction to the handset. The handset definitely has some unique features such as Firefly, tilt controls and the 3D effects in the user interface, but none of them appear to be helping to move a significant amount of inventory at this point.

Now, users can get a bit of a taste for what the Fire phone has to offer without actually buying one, because a new free app adds some simple tilt gesture functionality to the iPhone. More →

iPhone 6 Rumors Sapphire Glass

Don’t hold your breath for an iPhone 6 with sapphire glass

Don’t hold your breath for an iPhone 6 with sapphire glass

Apple is expected to introduce new iPhone models this year that will feature, for the first time ever, sapphire glass displays instead of Corning’s Gorilla Glass, but not all reports agree on what iPhone 6 models will have such front panels. Some say Apple would have enough sapphire manufacturing capacity for all iPhone 6 models, while others say that only the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will have such display covers. According to The Register, industrial analysis firm TrendForce has not observed any proof that actual sapphire display production is underway at Apple’s Arizona factory. More →
