What does Apple need to do for you next week?Shaun McGillSun, 31 Aug 2014 17:36:46 +0000http://www.lostinmobile.com/home/what-does-apple-need-to-do-for-you-next-week52bd65a0e4b0aee2c11d35b4:52bd9eb3e4b09f4528ffce36:54035d35e4b0c094f2dbec93

No matter how much you dislike Apple or how much you believe that the company is hyped to an outrageous extent, next week's event is shaping up to be the biggest tech moment of the year. The rumours have been swirling for a long time and there is a sense that we have already seen the form of the 4.7" iPhone 6. There are still many unknowns, however, and the wearable is likely the biggest one.

Will Apple launch something that makes the current crop of wearables look backwards? Will the company create another 2007 iPhone moment? I don't know, but I sense that next Monday will be a big day because I believe the company needs one and that it has been too quiet for too long. Something has been happening in the background and we are about to see what it is.

So, what do you want to see announced? If you are an ardent Android fan or an ardent Apple hater, what could the company do to make you think twice? If you are satisfied with the current iPhone, what would make you even more satisfied? It's the battery for me, it really is just that.

Stealing PIN codes with an iPhone  Voir?

What caused Robert Scoble and others to switch from iOS to Android?  Voir?

Later, Moto X showed me that there's yet again, more innovation coming on the Android side of the fence (you can't talk to your iPhone without touching it first), but on Moto X it just listens for you to say "OK Google Now." Since it is illegal to touch a phone while driving, both Glass and Moto X are big deals for me since I drive 1.5 hours every day to the Rackspace Studio in San Francisco and back. 
That all said, I still have an iPad and am watching the Apple ecosystem closely. Most users won't follow me, there aren't enough advantages -- yet. But with Paul's note, and my observations, there is something happening on the Android side of the fence and I think it'll become more obvious next year that Android has taken the innovation crown away from Apple (and everyone else)... More at Quora.

Robert Scoble has added some thoughts to Quora on why he moved from iOS to Android. He makes some valid points, but of course each person has different priorities. Thanks to Paul for the link.

The palmtop void  Voir?

The clamshell has proved as hard to push aside in the PC world as it's been hard to bring back in the mobile world. In the late '90s, operating systems such as Windows CE and Symbian powered palmtops such as the Philips Velo and the Psion Series 5; the latter showed that you could create a usable keyboard in a pocket-size clamshell device.
But the need for on-the-go productivity gadget hasn't disappeared. Thumb keyboards are handy for typing out a quick e-mail reply, but they can become tiring if used for more than a few minutes. Surely there's a significant enough base of people needing to type out accurate notes at impromptu meetings when there's no laptop or tablet around. And yet, for all the niche products that have sprung forth from the Kickstarter genie, no one's attempted to create a modern palmtop, perhaps one running Android... More at c|net.

I was reading the above article yesterday when Jah also sent it to me with the comment "I'd love to see a 5MX for factor running a modern OS."

Some people believe that those of us who still look back at the Psion range of palmtops are out of touch, but I swear blind that I could write full-length articles on a Psion 5MX keyboard now if the software were updated.

Nokia (and the rest) still need to learn from Apple  Voir?

A few hours later I receive a call from Nokia Care, this time a man, but once again the call is from somewhere in the Philippines, not Nokia Care UK. The man listens patiently to me, I explain that I sent a 64gb phone in for repair, and received a 32gb in exchange and that it has a damaged sim tray. He say no problem, if the sim tray is damaged it can be replaced, then in roundabout way asks if it is possible that I had made a mistake about the capacity of the 1020 I sent for repair. I actually have the box sat in front of me on my desk, I offer to send him a picture, he tells me that they will be able to tell from the IMEI, I comment that had they checked that in the first place, this whole problem wouldn

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is now £240  Voir?

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is now £240 including VAT, that is virtually half the price it was when it launched 12 months ago. That is quite a saving.
When it launched it was £455 and now at £240 that is £214 saving.
Whilst the Mega is not for everyone at £240 there is a lot it can offer is you have a specific requirement.
An almost tablet sized device the Samsung Galaxy mega has 6.3

The Neptune Pine Smartwatch: you can take things too far  Voir?

Paul mentioned the Neptune Pine Smartwatch in a great discussion we had on LIM about the battery life we should expect from smart watches which also touched on the size of these devices. The Neptune Pine Smartwatch is, however, crazily big in my view and I would feel somewhat strange wearing it. 

It isn't just the size that bothers me, it is the design. I prefer oversize watches, such as my G Shock below, because they suit me better, but when it is a smart watch it all changes for me. Jah also made a good point about how we view these devices- "I keep switching between thinking of Smartwatch and wearable. If we think wearable, then the hassle has to be measured against utility while the expression "smartwatch" will always lead to comparison with traditional watches."

2.6 images from the past 500 years  Voir?

If you have some spare time, or forever free, you could do worse than look at this new flickr set of 2.6 million images from newspapers, books and magazines published over the past 500 years. Be careful though because one you start looking, it really is difficult to stop. A fascinating resource.

It amazes me that things like a unique PIN and a different, but rather horrible, design will still be seen as incentives to purchase one of these things.

Does Apple get too much credit for UI design?  Voir?

yosem.jpg

The question above was posted on Quora and I tried to look at it when Kirk sent it to me, but even going to the page was painful and involved signing up, letting the service look for my friends and then spamming the hell out of me so I gave up. After a short discussion, however, Kirk sent me his answer which you may or may not agree with. Looking forward to your comments.

Short answer: Nah.
Long answer: for me the question is, what would consumer tech look like without Apple? I think there's something special about their "intersection of technology and liberal arts". While they didn't strictly make everything *sui generis* - Xerox "invented" WIMP interface, MP3 players existed before iPod, iPhone's homescreen looked a lot like Palm (which in turn looked like Newton... maybe I'm understating Apple's role there, even if as a company they turned away from that particular style of R+D) they refined all of those things to a high degree - even old pre-OSX Macs look kind of cool and fresh in a way Windows 98 machines don't, the iPod click wheel was kind of genius, and iPhone's groundbreaking use of that kind of flat touch screen was such a revelation.
Looking to the future -- sometimes, in my Boston-smarty-pants, high tech fishbowl world, I'm amazed when I hear how little share Mac has - here Windows makes the exception, absolutely. I think in general desktop/laptop UI is less important as more stuff moves online, but still it feels like Apple has a lot of room for growth, and will continue its stance of breaking new ground without ever participating into a race to the bottom and competing strictly on price.
No company blends software and hardware the way they do, and the results are excellent.

Lost In Mobile is back  Voir?

OK, I give up. Lost In Mobile is back in place of Pure iPhone. While the traffic did not change much after the new domain was implemented, the number of comments did and it would appear that it put some of you off for taking the time to discuss your thoughts.

So, I will still likely be covering iOS content more, but am open to looking at everything that is happening in the mobile tech world.

Samsung Gear S: running before you can walk?  Voir?

Just for a moment, I felt that the idea of a standalone smart watch that could do much of what I do on my phone made sense. The Galaxy Gear S is a realisation of that idea.

And then I saw the image below-

Even if I could ignore the sheer size of the device, I can't see the battery (180mAh Li-ion (Standby 300h / Talk 11h / Play Time 9h)) providing enough power to avoid a daily charge and there are still far too many areas that need more development to make such a device practical every day. Truly a case of running before you can walk just to get a device to market.
