Apple Event

Being a Mac is awesome. Apple products are easy-to-use, beautifully designed and invoke a sense of wonder. The iPad and iPhone become almost magical when you consider the broad spectrum of apps and what you can do. It’s getting more and more difficult not to say “There’s an app for that.”

With the all-but-officially confirmed Sept 12th Apple event on the horizon the interwebs are buzzing in anticipation of the iPhone 5, iPad mini and other rumors.

However, there is a product I guarantee you won’t ever see Apple develop.

Having drooled over Apple products for years before converting to Mac 3 years ago I’ve marveled at their rate of innovation. Apple makes no secret of the fact they cannabalize their own product lines with an annual release of upgraded models or brand new devices entirely. And each time they dominate.

Have you ever been using an app that you really like, but it’s missing a little feature that would make you swoon?

There are a number of apps that the writers of Geek for i will swear by. Personally, some of my favorites that sit on my home screen are:

However, as I’ve become a bit of a power user of these wonderful apps I’ve noticed some seemingly small tweaks that would make them unstoppable.

Next month’s Apple event is likely to included some highly anticipated announcements. In addition to the iPhone 5 and the intensely debated iPad mini I think we can expect an update to the iPod product line.

As Apple’s first handheld mobile device, the iPod has the most renditions of any of Apple’s brands, but hasn’t been updated since 2010. Specifically, the iPod nano has undergone a number of design changes since it was introduced in 2005.

With nearly 50,000 tweets between the 3 writers of Geek for i it’s safe to say we’re familiar with the terrain of social media.

As an active user on Twitter it’s easy to fall into the trap of overwhelming followers with a flood of tweets including random thoughts, quotes, Instagram photos and links to solid content.

Wouldn’t it be great to spread out your tweets through the day? Sort of like a buffer so when inspiration strikes or you stumble upon a compelling article you wanted to share with the world you could easily add it to a queue?

iOS6 (1)

Yesterday, Apple released the 4th version of iOS 6 beta to developers.

The most notable change is that Apple removed the native YouTube app.

Cue the confetti!

Personally, I think it’s about time YouTube was booted from iOS. I don’t like using the app and have had it in a “never use” folder along with some other native apps for over a year.

The rate of innovation shows no sign of decreasing. If anything it is exponential. One could argue that the progress of innovation is incremental (depending on the field), but these developments are happening in close succession.

This is never more evident than in the realm of mobile technology. Smartphones and their apps just keep coming. With the capacity of our imagination as the limit there seems to be no end in sight.
