We Are the World was recorded 30 years ago today –...

USA Today:

On Jan. 28, 1985, at A&M Recording Studios in Hollywood, following the American Music Awards, more than 40 artists gathered to record a song Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson had written to raise awareness of widespread, life-threatening poverty in Africa. Most of that show’s winners — including Cyndi Lauper, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen, Huey Lewis, Willie Nelson, Tina Turner, the Pointer Sisters, Kenny Rogers and the Jacksons — participated.

This was a pretty big deal at the time. Part of the magic is that they managed to keep the whole production a complete secret until the song was released.

Apple ships one billionth iOS device

You can’t sneeze at a billion of anything.

It’s just a really huge number.

Per AppleInsider, during its quarterly conference call on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the company had sold its one billionth iOS device in the December quarter, a device that will be kept at Cupertino for posterity.

Apple’s one billionth iOS device shipment, a number calculated from total iPhone, iPad and iPod touch sales, is emblematic of the mobile operating system’s global appeal and marks a momentous achievement for the consumer electronics space.

“On Nov. 22, we shipped our one billionth iOS device,” Cook said. “It was a space-gray 64GB iPhone 6 Plus, which we’ve saved here at Apple.”

It’s fitting that an Phone 6 Plus...

POS Terminals Rich Vein for Gold-Digging Hackers


Hackers are like gold miners. Once they find a rich vein for their malware, they mine it until it's dry. Point-of-sale terminals are such a vein. Following the success of the Target breach in 2013, the hacker underground was quick to rush more POS malware to market. "Attackers have recognized that the physical point-of-sale terminal is a new viable soft target," said Christopher Budd, threat communications manager at Trend Micro. "So we saw an increase in interest in malware that targets that."

The iPad Is 5 Years Old This Week, But You Still Don...

HughPickens.com writes: Five years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad and insisted that it would do many things better than either a laptop or a smartphone. Will Oremus writes at Future Tense that by most standards, the iPad has been a success, and the tablet has indeed emerged as a third category of computing device. But there's another way of looking at the iPad. According to Oremus, Jobs was right to leave out the productivity features and go big on the simple tactile pleasure of holding the Internet in your hands. But for all its popularity and appeal, the iPad never has quite cleared the bar Jobs set for it, which was to be "far better" at some key tasks than a laptop or a smartphone. The iPad may have been "far better" when it was first released, but smartphones have come a long way. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and their Android equivalents are now convenient enough for most mobile computing tasks that there's no need to carry around a tablet as well. That helps explain why iPad...

Apple broke many records with its latest quarter reporting $74.6 billion in revenue and $18 billion in profit with 74.4 million iPhones sold, numbers which greatly surpassed both Apple’s guidance and the even higher consensus analysts predicted, and Wall Street is taking notice.

Following a dismal day for the market yesterday which saw Apple down a few points ahead of its earnings report—it was soon back on the rise in after hours trading—both Apple and the Dow are climbing this morning largely due to those record numbers yesterday. Hovering around 7.5% higher since opening this morning and occasionally crossing 8%, Apple is positioned to cross its previous record high shortly.

In terms of Apple’s market cap, the company added nearly $50 billion overnight...

Universal Pictures today announced that principal photography has commenced in San Francisco on Steve Jobs. Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.

Tim Cook insists iPad prospects still rosy despite...

Apple’s press release yesterday noted “all-time record revenue from iPhone and Mac sales as well as record performance of the App Store,” while remaining silent on iPad sales. The reason? The slide continued last quarter, with year-on-year sales down 18%, and a reduction in average selling price meaning revenue was down 22%.

Tim Cook acknowledges that the switch to larger-screened iPhones mean the iPad is being squeezed from both sides.

There’s probably some level of cannibalization that’s going on, with the Mac on one side and the phone on the other.

It’s also undeniable that people upgrade their iPads less frequently than their iPhones–Cook putting the number at “somewhere between” the 2-year cycle of the...

Where to get the perfect custom iPhone case

Your iPhone case says a lot about you—a Speck CandyShell, for example, tells the world that you’re fun, bright, and quirky-yet-practical when it comes to protection and usability. TwelveSouth’s BookBook, on the other hand, says you love books—even fake books.

So, here’s the question: If your iPhone case is a window to your soul, do you really want to settle for something mass produced and inherently un-unique, when you could spring for a custom case? If the answer is no, you’re in luck: Thanks to a myriad of custom case-makers, personalized cases are relatively inexpensive and easy to come by.

Its net profit of $18B far exceeded the previous record of $15.9B, set by oil company ExxonMobil back in 2012.

With such huge numbers difficult to grasp, there have been various attempts around the net to put the numbers into perspective.  TechCrunch expressed it as a profit of $8.3M per hour.

About the time frame we expected. As we get closer to a sales date, I find it interesting how many people I hear are at least interested in seeing the Apple Watch with an eye towards buying it.

The company reportedly hasn’t publicly committed to a date because Cook and co. are still working on the device’s battery life.

Income for the quarter, which ended Dec. 27 and included the important holiday shopping period, was $18 billion, up from $13.1 billion in the same quarter last year. Earnings per share came in at $3.06 compared with $2.07 a year earlier.

Record revenue from iPhone and Mac computer sales helped the company's results, Cook said in a news release. iPhone sales totalled 74.5 million units, the company said. Sales outside the U.S. accounted for 65 percent of revenue.

Apple Watch starts shipping in April, Tim Cook...

We knew it was coming sometime this spring, but now we have a more narrow timeframe: Apple Watch starts shipping in April, Tim Cook said.

So it’s not an exact date, but we’re getting closer. Cook dropped the news on Apple’s quarterly earnings call Tuesday afternoon, saying Apple Watch is “on schedule” and will ship in April. The company reportedly hasn’t publicly committed to a date because Cook and co. are still working on the device’s battery life.

According to a recent 9to5Mac scoop, Apple is aiming for 19 hours of mixed active and passive use, but isn’t sure it can nail that goal for the first generation of Apple Watches.

Tim Cook: The Apple Watch ships in April

Apple CEO Tim Cook dropped a rare bit of product news on the company's Q1 2015 earnings call: the Apple Watch begins shipping in April.

The Apple Watch will start at $349 for the aluminum Apple Watch Sport model, though starting prices for the more expensive stainless steel and gold models haven't yet been revealed. To use the watches, you'll need an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, or 6 Plus, and the watch's NFC chip will enable Apple Pay support for the phones that don't support it natively.

A new update to iOS, version 8.2, will also be required to use the watch—it's currently in its fourth developer beta. Some of those betas have already outed some Apple Watch features, and like Android Wear it looks like the...

Apple’s Q1 2015: Ridiculously high iPhone sales, 18...

Apple's earnings report for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 is here, and as usual the numbers for the holiday quarter are looking pretty good. iPhone sales are way up, and account for over two-thirds of Apple's revenue. Macs continue their more modest but still impressive growth, while iPads have seen their sharpest year-over-year decline.

Let's get the numbers out of the way first. Apple broke quarterly records with $18 billion in profit and $74.6 billion in revenue, compared to $13.1 billion in profit and $57.6 billion in revenue in Q1 of 2014. It maintained a healthy profit margin of 39.9 percent. These results firmly beat Apple's guidance for the quarter, which predicted revenue between $63.5 billion and $66.5 billion and profit margins between 37.5 and 38.5 percent.
