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

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.

iPhone 6 owner wishes being bent was the only thing wrong with his device

We’ve been through the entire Bendgate fiasco and figured out that if you intentionally bend a thin phone you paid a lot of money for it will probably bend. But one iPhone 6 owner is claiming that his new phone didn’t just bend — it also caught fire.

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 3 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 →

iOS 8.1 doesn’t seem to fix the huge issue that prevented you from updating to iOS 8

Apple on Monday released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8 that brought some new features to users (such as Apple Pay for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) and also fixed several other issues. However, Apple has apparently failed to fix an important iOS 8 issue it has never acknowledged since launching its newest OS version on September 17th — and it’s particularly important because it may have prevented many users from upgrading from iOS 7.

The real questions Google Search wants to answer, but can’t yet

The streaming price wars are coming – and they’re a music fan’s dream come true

There really has never been a better time to be a music fan — particularly if you’re a music fan who loves exploring vast catalogs of music that you won’t find on any top 40 radio stations. Pandora and Spotify have proven to be the two most popular music streaming services so far but there are plenty of competitors that are lining up to take the crown, led by Apple and its newly acquired Spotify rival Beats Music. All this added competition can only mean one thing: Streaming price wars are coming. More →

This incredible heartwarming story shows us how amazing Siri can be

Siri, Google Now and Cortana are the three main voice-based virtual assistants available on competing mobile operating system from Apple, Google and Microsoft, respectively. While there’s fierce competition between them as each company tries to improve its own assistant solution and beat the others, there’s one way these advanced apps can help without necessarily having to be extremely accurate and fast.

For at least one autistic boy, Siri has become a best friend and a virtual companion that has all the time in the world to patiently answer all his queries, one way or another. More →
