Beats by Dre recently did what anyone who receives a nice chunk of change would do, and got themselves some new digs. Culver City holds home to this new Beats headquarters, which happens to be 105,000 square feet. Although, Beats was recently purchased by Apple, they don’t seem to take much inspiration from their new owner.
I’ve been holding out for awhile now, waiting for the iPhone 6 to release instead of buying the 5s. So far a lot of signs have pointed to Apple’s latest addition to the iPhone family hitting retailers in September. These are some concept photos put together by designers, Tomas Moyano & Nicolas Aichino, look like they could definitely be the real thing. Only time will tell what we’ll see, but let’s hope it’s a very similar variation of this.
Ahhh, the olden days of technology, what fun you were. Here’s a look at some Apple prototypes from the 1980s. It’s crazy to think that back then these were probably considered very futuristic. I need that headset/watch phone combo, that is ill. These are all from the book, Keep It Simple, by Hartmut Esslinger.
In case you haven’t heard the news, tech giant, Apple, is in the process of buying Beats Electronics for a whopping $3.2 billion. Great news for Dr. Dre, bad news for Dr. Dre fans. As if it hasn’t taken the music legend long enough to put out his Detox album, he’ll have even less of a reason to finish it now. It’ll be interesting to see what Apple’s plans are for the audio company. With rumors of an iWatch, and a bigger screened iPhone on the way, Apple is looking to make some serious moves over the next couple years.
Well, this is pretty crazy. In the six minutes that I’ve let this website that shows how much tech giants make per second, Apple has made almost $2 million in revenue and $420,000 in profit. It’s also crazy to see that Twitter isn’t making any money? What’s up with that?
Apple recently released this new commercial promoting the iPhone 5s. Apple uses the Pixie’s song “Gigantic” to demonstrate all of the cool things you can do with the latest smart phone. The TV spot also features the new iPhone tagline, “You’re more powerful than you think”. Take a look.
30 Years ago Apple introduced the original Macintosh computer to the public. At the time, most people couldn’t even operate a computer, but the Mac’s simple interface allowed people to easily learn how to use the innovative technology. Fast forward 30 years and Apple is still releasing some the best products by utilizing iconic design and focusing on simplicity. In celebration of the Mac’s 30th anniversary, Apple has unveiled this “30 Years of Mac” series that highlights three decades of tech design.
Apple has teamed up with Volvo to unveil its latest venture: CarPlay. With CarPlay you can integrate your iPhone 5, 5C and 5S with the vehicle’s existing infotainment system, allowing you to access all your favorite apps right from the the dashboard of your car. You can text, make calls, use maps, play music and much more with the system. The best part is that it will function just like your other Apple devices.
Apple has hit 30 years of innovation when it comes to Mac and computers, and to show you a little background they released this video. The MacBook I’m writing this with is definitely a lot different than the old school Macintosh I used in computer class in 5th grade. It’s crazy to see how fast, and how far they’ve progressed.
Taking some cues from the Nike+ FuelBand, Todd Ham designed this amazing iWatch concept. No one really knows what the upcoming iWatch from Apple will look like, but I definitely think this would be solid route to go. Check out all the details on the concept here.
Apple has some big plans for their new headquarters that they plan to have built by 2016. Right now these are just renderings, but it gives you a pretty good idea of what they’re going for. It’s almost like they’re building their own little secluded society, which is kind of cool.
