Located in Zorlu Center shopping mall of Istanbul lies quite possibly the dopest Apple Store on the planet. Designed by Norman Foster’s firm Foster + Partners, the store is actually the very first Apple Store in eastern Europe. It features two subterranean levels with a glass rectangular box at the top, which gives it the appearance of a lantern.
We’ve seen people turn old Apple computers into fish tanks, but this one is a first. Klaus Geiger has converted old G5 Power Macs into a bench and a container. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like they’re for sale anywhere. If you can get your hands on a G5 Power Mac, then maybe you can attempt to make your own. Read more about the upcycling project here.
Apple held another keynote the other day to show off some new gadgets. One of the new products was the brand new 27″ iMac with a 5K retina display. The 5K display is seven times greater than 1080p. That’s some crystal clear quality. The computer will also pack a 3.5GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. Prices start at $2500 for these suped-up computers. Available here.
This is a pretty cool graphic that shows how iOS has changed from the first version until now. Obviously, all things must progress, but I’m still a pretty big fan of iOS 5 & 6. Who’s got their hands on the iPhone 6 already?
BFF’s Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have finally made it. Apple recruited them to star in their new iPhone 6 commercials. If their voices don’t sell you on this new phone, nothing will.
We actually just got an IKEA in my area, can’t wait to go get lost in that sucker. (Maybe even throw a party in it like this dude.) IKEA decided to hop on the bandwagon of those who have made fun of Apple with their latest commercial. The video showcases their 2015 catalogue or “bookbook.”
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.
