VERY cool redesign to apple.com, which was looking a touch dated. Very nice!

My kitten Dobby loves the new Designed by Apple ad!

He watched it already once, so I had to tap the screen once to get him to look again, but he loves it!

Apple's sneak peek at iOS 7, coming later this year.

Very nice, I think. Translucency is the new linen.

Jony Ive’s new look for iOS 7: black, white, and flat all over
Mark Gurman, 9to5mac.com
With the grand unveil­ing of Apple’s next oper­at­ing sys­tem for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch approach­ing, sources have pro­vid­ed detailed descrip­tions of what users and devel­op­ers alike could expect from the soft­ware’s fresh look.As…


While I’m sure that the new iOS will be flatter and less skeuomorphic than the current one, all the ‘concepts’ that independent artists are creating are just basically windows phone. I don’t think that it will look anything like Windows Phone. It will be flatter, because that’s the future trend, but I think it will be more Google than Windows Phone, but I think it will still be distinctly Apple - and for many, I think, they won’t change it enough - they will err on the side of keeping things familiar. This is good, but people are bored with the current look - so I think people will go ‘meh’, even if the new look is very good.

Pack up your things, Apple, Google, Microsoft…

Someone has just given Email the revamp of it’s life. They’ve reimagined Email in a way that none of these guys have managed to do.

And the shock and horror of it all, is that the inventor of the best Email experience yet is…. AOL!

lol.

Seriously, though, Altomail is the new email, and they’ve done amazing things with it. These are the top 2 features for me so far:

  • You DON’T get *Yet another* email address. At this stage it works with gmail, and icloud, and a few others, and soon it will work with regular servers too i’m sure. that’s a huge win - getting another email address would be a deal-breaker for me. I’m using it with my Gmail account, which isn’t one i use a lot, mostly as a backup emergency email or for google stuff. But still, it’s cool!
  • It looks nice. If this was a downloadable email program, and it worked with my own server’s email, i would use it exclusively from right now, and i’ve only used it for 10 minutes. It’s the nicest looking, most clever layout so far.

iTunes Music store has arrived in SA!

Quite cool. Now all they have to do is bring the Games section to the App store - so lame that games are hidden from the SA store.
Still worth getting a US account, though.

"I’m a massive fan of all things Apple, but honestly, what used to be an interesting review of conflicting rumors and confusing patents has basically become Apple announcing every detail of their new products via “leaks” before the launches. It’s makes the launches major snoozefests, it makes the products seem ordinary, and it makes Apple seem insecure."

Tim Cook’s letter on Maps

To our customers,

At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up.

There are already more than 100 million iOS devices using the new Apple Maps, with more and more joining us every day. In just over a week, iOS users with the new Maps have already searched for nearly half a billion locations. The more our customers use our Maps the better it will get and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback we have received from you.

While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.

Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working non-stop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard.

Tim Cook
Apple’s CEO
