Rival tech companies haven’t been shy when it comes to Apple attack ads, but one Chinese company has definitely crossed the line in a promotion for its forthcoming Android smartphone. LeTV has posted to Weibo a poster likening Apple to Nazis, a red Apple armband replacing the Nazi logo.

The underlying message is supposed to compare the claimed freedom of the Android platform with the carefully controlled iOS one, but it’s hard to imagine a more offensive way to try to communicate it.

The image appeared on the verified Weibo account of billionaire CEO of LeTV, Jia Yueting, and was first spotted by The Verge.

Future Macs could get up to 10TB SSDs thanks to new Intel...

Today, 12:01 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

3d-nand.png?w=704&h=360

SSDs are fast, but still expensive compared to spinning metal drives, giving us less storage capacity in today’s Macs than we got in older models. Pick up a classic 13-inch MacBook Pro with a hard drive, for example, and you’ll get 500GB of storage for $1100, compared to just 128GB of SSD storage in the $1300 entry-level Retina model.

That may be set to change thanks to new 3D NAND technology announced by Intel and Micron, allowing them to fit far greater storage capacity into the same space as today’s drives. By stacking flash cells on top of each other, up to 32 layers deep, they can can triple the capacity in the same size chip without the usual high price-tag, reports PC World.

For a standard 2.5-inch SATA drive that means up to 10TB of space; for the M.2 drive type used by most laptops, the 3D NAND will boost capacities up to 3.5TB.

We’ve been promised this technology before–Samsung demonstrated 24 layers of 3D NAND back in 2013–but Intel and Micron say that manufacturers will be able to buy the new chips later this year. Of course, with Apple not noted for its generosity when it comes to storage capacity, you may not want to hold your breath.

Apple officially confirms Apple Watch sales in department...

We reported last month that Apple was creating Apple Watch displays inside department stores in London and Paris, adding earlier this month that Tokyo was joining the party. All three stores-within-a-store are now official, with entries on Apple’s website. As we previously noted, the locations are Selfridges in LondonGaleries Lafayette in Paris and Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo.

All three are opening on 10th April, the same day Apple Watchs are available for preview and pre-orders in Apple’s own retail stores, and are being given a high-profile presence in each department store …

In Selfridges, the Apple Watch display is part of its Wonder Room, a room devoted to watches and jewellery and described by the store as “a unique destination that plays host to the world’s most desirable brands.” Apple’s watch will be rubbing shoulders with Cartier, Bvlgari, Tag Heuer, Gucci, Montblanc, Longines and more.

In Galeries Lafayette, the display is spanning the width of four full balconies on the second floor in the dramatic arched setting.

In Isetan, an entire room has been set aside for the Apple Watch, and it has been added to the mall directory, suggesting that it is likely to be a permanent fixture.

The Apple Watch will initially be available in nine countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan. Apple has already added promotional images in its retail stores, with customers able to make appointments to try on the watch from 10th April.

When I think of young Steve Jobs, I typically picture the long-haired hippie who worked at Atari, or the brilliant-but-immature co-founder who started Apple with Steve Wozniak. But here’s something I’ve not seen before: a photo of Jobs as amf.gif

Much has been made of the managerial differences between Tim Cook and predecessor Steve Jobs, and unsurprisingly that extends to their respective approaches to recruitment, too. Jobs famously recruited Apple engineer Bob Belleville by telling him that, “Everything you’ve evermf.gif

Apple Announces April 10 Grand Openings for Apple Watch S...

Today, 04:19 AM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple today officially announced April 10 grand openings for its three dedicated Apple Watch shops located in high-end department stores in London, Paris, and Tokyo. As previously outlined, the store-within-a-store locations are at Selfridges in London, Galeries Lafayette in Paris, and Isetan in Tokyo.

apple_watch_selfridges_opening.jpg
The new locations appear set to handle only Apple Watch viewing and sales, with customers being directed to other Apple retail stores for their support needs.

The Selfridges Apple Watch shop will be located near the entrance to the iconic Wonder Room, a massive shopping hall that houses a wide selection of luxury jewelry and watch brands alongside a concept store and mezzanine wine bar. Apple has reportedly been drawing employees from other retail stores in London to staff the new shop. The Galeries Lafayette shop will take over four balcony sections overlooking the main rotunda of the department store.

Apple will begin in-store previews and pre-orders for the Apple Watch on April 10, with launches in the first wave of countries coming two weeks later. The high-end gold Apple Watch Edition models will only be available at select Apple retail stores, and the dedicated Apple Watch shops at these luxury department stores will almost certainly also be featuring the gold watches, which are priced from $10,000 to $17,000.mf.gif

App Store, iTunes, Apple TV and more experiencing service...

Update: Apple says all services are restored.

Following an outage of many Apple services earlier this week, several of Apple’s iTunes and App Store services are again today experiencing disruptions, according to Apple’s system status page.

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

Apple is currently listing outages for the App Store, Apple TV, iBooks Store, iTunes in the Cloud, iTunes Match, iTunes Radio, iTunes Store, iTunes U, Mac App Store, and OS X Software Update.

The company says that only some users are affected and currently “unable to access multiple services and stores or make purchases.”

Following the outage earlier this week, which also hit some of Apple’s own stores, Apple blamed the outage on “an internal DNS error at Apple,” and apologized to customers for the inconvenience.

We’ll keep you updated as Apple works to fix the problems.

Steve Wozniak seems to have a complex relationship with both modern-day Apple and, particularly, the Apple Watch. In an interview at the Automate/Promat Show in Chicago yesterday, Apple’s co-founder said Apple’s foray into high-end wearables marks a very different turn for themf.gif

iTunes Store, App Store and Other Apple Services Experien...

Yesterday, 11:14 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
According to Apple's System Status page, several of its services are experiencing downtime. Some users may be unable to access the iTunes Store, App Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store.

The page also suggests some users may be experiencing issues with the Apple TV, iTunes Match, iTunes Radio, iTunes U, and OS X Software Updates.

applesystemstatus-800x508.jpg
The downtime appears to have started just after 3pm and is ongoing. We have received several emails and tweets from users who are unable to access the App Store or can only access certain parts of the App Store.

App Store Top Charts, for example, have been unavailable since the downtime originally began, and while some app categories were also blank, those seem to be reappearing, suggesting the outage may be short.

Today's App Store outage is the second Apple has seen this week.mf.gif
