Apple iPhone 7: Are You F#$king Kidding Me?
Let me get right to the point. The new iPhone 7 is a fantastic, awesome,
incredible, spectacular iteration of the iPhone 6. Great processor (a
quad-core, 64-bit A10 Fusion), outstanding rear-facing camera (12 MP), a new
wireless chip (W1) to facilitate Bluetooth connectivity, iOS 10, a
pressure-sensitive home button, and taptic feedback. Oh, yeah, there’s one
more thing …
There’s no headphone jack.
Calm down, fanpeople – I’m going to make my case.
It would have been fine to replace the 3.5 mm jack with an additional
lightning port. If the iPhone 7 had two lightning ports, you would be able to
do all of the following:

Apple has started borrowing money to underwrite the three-year $60 billion
share buy-back program it promised stockholders last week.
The company is also going to pay out $55 billion in dividends through 2015.
It's issued floating-rate notes maturing in 2016 and 2018 and fixed-rate
securities due in 2016, 2018, 2023 and 2043, it said in a regulatory filing,
starting with a bond offering worth $17 billion on Tuesday, reportedly the
largest non-bank bond offering ever.
It was swamped with orders reportedly worth $50 billion.
Apple will pay around 0.5% on three-year notes, 1.07% on five-year notes,
2.42% on 10-year notes and 3.88% on 30-year bonds. Next time the yields could

So Steve Jobs has finally announced the availability of the iPhone SDK. It
will be available sometime in February of 2008. First, before I go on, I want
to counter a lot of the press and blog comments stating that the release of
the SDK is a reversal or some kind of about face. If anybody had done their
homework, they would know that Steve Jobs himself stated that he wanted to
create an environment that supported native 3rd party app development, but
that they didn't have it "right" just yet, and that he wanted people to be
patient. Obviously, he didn't remember that patience is one quality few
techies (including myself) possess.
So where are we now? Does the announcement of the native, Cocoa-based SDK
mean that web development for the iPhone and iPod touch are dead? Absolutely
not. There are still a truckload of advantages to doing iPhone web
development. To me, th... (more)
I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?
Eric Miraglia of Yahoo!
1. (From March'08) How do I calculate the ROI of building my RIA on the
iPhone SDK vs using AJAX?
2. How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to
make it faster?
3. When it comes to accessibility, how do I know what's required of me for
my rich web apps? Beyond what's required, what makes good business se... (more)
With the iPhone more than earning its place in the consumer market, it is now
being adopted by enterprises. But just how important are design patterns for
distributed mobile applications?
According to Jason Christensen, “Patterns are important for consuming ReST
based web-services, TCP stream based services, and Push notifications from
the iPhone.” Christensen will be presenting a 45-minute breakout session at
iPhone Developer Summit 2009 West, being held November 3rd, 2009, at the
Santa Clara Convention Center in conjunction with SYS-CON's 4th International
Cloud Computing Expo (November 2-4, 2009).
Titled "Design Patterns for Distributed Mobile Applications," Christensen
will in the session discuss a set of five patterns that will aid in
distributed programming on the iPhone. “These patterns will include the
Simple ReST-Consumer Pattern, the Authenticated ReST-Cons... (more)

Google studied online shopping behavior for the U.S. in the 2011 holiday
season, which revealed a number of interesting stats. 41 percent of those who
used mobile phones to shop made a purchase directly on their smartphone. 46
percent researched an item on their smartphone, and then went to a store to
make their purchase. 37 percent researched an item on their smartphone then
made their purchase online. Read Original Content
While actual mobile-shopping purchase transactions accounted for only two
percent of e-commerce sales in 2011, the Kellogg Shopper Index – in a
survey of 1,400 consumers -- found that more than half o... (more)
There have been quite a lot of rumors these last few weeks with regards to
Apple reportedly working on an iWatch. I was wondering what they would gain
with such a move? Some have pointed out that they already have the iPod Nano
as a simple watch, but this repeats the functionality of the music player and
lacks functionality of the full iOS device. Does this mean the age of Dick
Tracy is around the corner? Far fetched you think? I would have agreed, but
after I visited the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA last week it
may not be. The Computer History Museum exhibits hardware up to the year 2000
and it's awesome how far we have gone beyond that in 13 years! So this may
not be far off… and trust Apple to make it happen.
It's only when you start using 'wearable technology' that you realise what a
convenience it is, being able to look at the the latest inform... (more)
Apple just came out with the new programming language Swift. According to
Apple, Swift will make it a lot easier and more fun to develop apps for both
iOS and OS X. That's in contrast to the current language, Objective-C, which
is somewhat antiquated and considered by many to be difficult to use.
Although Swift is easier to use, we're sure that there will be issues like
crashes, slow request, errors and so on as we already know it from
Objective-C and other languages. We also know that business will ask for
usage statistics. This is the reason why we immediately investigated Swift
and can now show you how easy it is to add proper tracking to your app in
just four steps.
Step 1: Add Lib to your Swift Project
Once you have a Swift application, including the Mobile iOS Agent into the
application project is very simple. First you add the iOS Agent static
library and he... (more)
