When iTunes was first unveiled nearly 15 years ago, it was a revolutionary product — all your music available in one place. As time has moved on, other platforms, including Pandora, Spotify and others have eaten away at iTunes, as digital streaming has replaced the download.

However, Apple isn’t going to go quietly, as the company has said “music… is deep in our DNA.” More →

Toyota Apple CarPlay Support

Don’t expect new Toyotas to come with Apple CarPlay support anytime soon

Don’t expect new Toyotas to come with Apple CarPlay support anytime soon

Though CarPlay was originally introduced at WWDC 2013, Apple’s iOS based infotainment system hasn’t exactly taken the world by storm. This is partially due to the fact that the auto industry tends to move at a snail’s pace relative to the tech industry.  Compounding matters is the fact that some companies aren’t exactly sold on CarPlay in the first place.

Apple Vs. Samsung Employees

Apple is now stealing from Samsung in a way that’s perfectly legal

Apple is now stealing from Samsung in a way that’s perfectly legal

Apple has accused Samsung of stealing its ideas but now it looks like Apple is stealing away Samsung employees. The Korea Times reports that “Apple is luring away Samsung Electronics’ experts in next-generation technology” with a particular focus on “technicians and engineers engaged in signal- and visual-processing management.” Apple has also apparently recently been poaching Samsung battery experts, which is particularly interesting since it comes at a time when Apple is reportedly working on building its own electric car and is putting a great emphasis on developing more efficient sources of energy.

21 top iOS developers reveal the gorgeous apps they’re making for Apple Watch

Though the Apple Watch will sport a number of interesting features right out of the box, the real value proposition of the device arguably lies with third-party apps. Much how the iPhone user experience was improved exponentially with the advent of the App Store, it stands to reason that the utility of the Apple Watch will only be fully realized once we see what type of magic developers are able to come up with.

Lightsaber Design Jony Ive

Designed by Apple in Tatooine: This is what a lightsaber designed by Jony Ive would look like

Designed by Apple in Tatooine: This is what a lightsaber designed by Jony Ive would look like

In a huge profile in The New Yorker last week, Apple design boss Jony Ive revealed that has gave director J.J. Abrams some advice on how to design a better lightsaber for his upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As you’ll recall, the new lightsaber was the source of some contention among Star Wars fans who complained that it looked, well, a bit too ridiculous.

As we have seen in more recent images from The Force Awakens, it appears as though Abrams and company definitely took some of Ive’s advice and made some key changes to the lightsaber’s new design.

Even still, however, it’s clear that this device is not a Jony Ive creation… so what might a lightsaber look like if it was designed by Ive from the ground up? More →
