Finally, after weeks of rumors and speculation, the men in black took to the stage and announced Apple’s new lineup of iPhones. This “special event” came as no surprise because that’s pretty much what Apple has does in September. Even less surprising were the products, mostly due to well-placed leaks that had been circulating for quite some time. In fact, the event left many wondering if Apple wasn’t hiding something else up its sleeve—like a smart watch. While that little gadget would have been a cool addition to the event, its “me too” status would have only served to underscore Apple’s apparent innovative slump, which prompts the question, “Is that all there is?” Here’s a look at a number of questions that come to mind in the wake of Apple’s “special event”.
September 10th has been officially announced as Apple’s next big seminar event, with sites like The Verge proudly flaunting their invites online. Naturally, rumors abound about what new product Apple will unveil—with some being more plausible than others. With competitors like Samsung moving into the smartphone and tablet arena, a space Apple founded, some Apple supporters are calling for Apple’s next big innovation. iWatch anyone? However, if Apple’s leaders are smart, which they are, they will realize that their success has never been driven by their competitors, but by Apple’s own brand and inventiveness.
Since the launch of the first Macintosh in 1984, Apple Inc. has made a name for itself as one of the main think tanks for new and cutting edge technology. Despite a slump in the ‘90s, the company has also grown into one of the biggest companies in the world, maintaining its position through constant innovations and new technologies.
Finding a job is not always that easy. I know some people who never seem to have a hard time finding a job, but there are some who may take forever. It’s not all about skills and experience all the time, though. Some of those I know who belong to the first group may not have the best credentials, while some who belong to the second group may be some of the most qualified people I know.
I guess it’s all about timing – and pieces falling into place.
As we face the second half of the year, and you are looking at finding a job – whether for the first or the nth time – AND you’re looking at the tech sector, here’s a nifty list of the best technology jobs in 2013. Of course, best might be relative, but you get the gist.
There’s no doubt about it – the human race will forever have a fixation on anything superhero-related. Superheroes may take on different faces and have different powers depending on the culture and era, but the concepts remain the same. I suppose that it’s one of the not-so-basic human needs: to have these mythical creatures to look up to. Whether it’s escapism or idealism at work, I don’t really know.
But did you know that ideas from superhero stories have found their way to real life? I’m not talking about Kick Ass (although that’s still not real life, I know), but I just saw this infographic from Visually which showcases real-life technology based on superhero stories, and I think you’ll appreciate it too.
