What Apple thinks about Blackberry killing its phone business

Tim Cook BlackBerry
Over the past few years, much has been written about BlackBerry’s historic fall from grace. In a turn of events that already has the trappings of a classic Business School 101 case-study, the famed Canadian tech giant once ruled the smartphone market with an iron fist before Apple swooped in out of nowhere and pushed them to the brink of irrelevance. Once it became clear that Apple’s take on the modern-day smartphone was where the entire industry was headed, BlackBerry tried to implement all sorts of gimmicks, strategy re-shifts, and executive shuffling in an effort to stay afloat. Alas, there was nothing that BlackBerry could do to remain relevant in a smartphone market that quickly became a two-horse race between Apple and Android.

Tim Cook hints the MacBook Pro update we want is on the way

MacBook Pro 2016 Release Date
Apple last week unveiled a bunch of new products during its iPhone fall event, with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sharing the spotlight. There was no surprise one more thing at the end of the show — though you could argue that Apple began with one: Super Mario for iPhone. That means we did not get to see a brief MacBook announcement during the event that was focused on mobile devices and mobile experiences. But Apple is expected to refresh some of its Mac products this year, and Tim Cook hinted that’s going to happen sooner than you think.

Barbra Streisand tells Jimmy Fallon about her beef with Siri

Barbra Streisand Siri Jimmy Fallon
We heard a few days ago that Barbra Streisand decided to pick up the phone and call none other than Tim Cook to demand a certain update in Siri. She wasn’t happy with the way Siri pronounces her name, and the Apple CEO obliged, letting her know that it’ll all be fixed come September 30th. Naturally, all tech blogs speculated that we’re going to get a new version of iOS on that date, likely the first iOS 10 release, though it would be a little late compared to Apple’s usual iOS rollout. But this isn’t about that at all. No, we’re just going to take a look at Streisand explaining the entire thing to Jimmy Fallon.

Metal detectors seemingly being installed at WWDC as Tim Cook acknowledges Orlando tragedy

A tweeted photo suggests that Apple is installing metal detectors at the entrance to WWDC for the first time, as CEO Tim Cook tweeted a message in support of the victims and families of the Orlando shooting.

The additional security – a first for a WWDC event – is likely to be in response to the deadliest mass shooting in recent history, a gunman killing 49 people and injuring more than 50 others in a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend.

Former Apple ad guru Ken Segall says company is losing touch with its heritage of simplicity

Ken Segall, the former Apple ad consultant who coined the iMac name, wrote the copy for the famous ‘Think different’ campaign and authored the book Insanely Simple, says that Apple is beginning to lose touch with its heritage of simplicity. He gave his assessment of Apple’s ‘state of simplicity’ in a piece for the Guardian.

Though Apple’s customers remain fiercely loyal, the natives are getting restless. A growing number of people are sensing that Tim Cook’s Apple isn’t as simple as Steve’s Apple. They see complexity in expanding product lines, confusing product names, and the products themselves.

While the Guardian‘s headline makes the piece seem entire critical, it’s actually very balanced …

Tim Cook speaks at Startup Fest in interview with Neelie Kroes, discusses app economy, coding in education, more

[UPDATE: Video embedded below.]

Tim Cook featured at StartupFest this morning, in an interview with Neelie Kroes discussing Apple’s influence in startups and entrepreneurship culture. Cook covered many topics including the role of entrepreneurs and the App Store, the startup climate in Europe, economic optimism, technology in education, Apple Watch and more. We’ve included some snippets of the talk below …

In the interview, Tim Cook says Apple gives entrepreneurs the ability to sell their app instantly worldwide through the App Store. Apple provides technical and marketing assistance to clear the path so the developer can focus on their product. Most young companies should be principally focused on the product; Apple tries to help ease the frictions to fuel more entrepreneurs to do exactly that. Apple is bringing an app development center in Naples to kickstart the app economy in places it hasn’t yet been.
