Positive Reviews Abound For the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

 We are a couple of weeks in since Apple held its “Hey Siri” event in the grand city of San Francisco. 

And, since then,  the stars have perfectly aligned in the creation of Apple’s newest iPhone – the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.  I am so happy that I waited until my contract played out because, if I owned the Phone 6 right now, I would  have been seriously – well – not happy!  Read the rest of this entry

Tim Cook To Appear On Late Show With Stephen Colbert On September 2015

I knew there was a reason I loved Stephen Colbert. I was waiting for this announcement and – voilà- it happened. 

As you can see from the above embedded tweet, on Tuesday, September 15th on CBS at 11:35 PM, Apple CEO Tim Cook will appear on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show to plug all the fancy new tech gadgets that were announced on September 9th. 

This is quite huge. And I am excited to see and hear just what Tim Cook has in store for us when he makes this rare guest appearance. 

It looks like Stephen Colbert is already sporting a spiffy new Apple Watch, but, more important, will the new and very much improved Apple TV steal the show from the new iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch?  Will Tim Cook make an announcement about Apple’s much anticipated television streaming service?  Will a CBS App be available on the new Apple TV Unit? 

Ah yes. Therein lies the rub. How cool would this be if CBS becomes the first major network to jump on the Apple TV bandwagon.  Very cool. 

Do you think that CBS is lined up to launch an Apple TV App in 2016 or sooner? Will you be watching the Late Show to find out?   Well, I will – but, then, there was little doubt, no? 

Apple To Hold Major Event On September 9th: Apple TV And Siri Are The Stars

It will be a Year to the Day and Minute when Apple hosts it’s huge event on Wednesday, September 9th at 10:00 AM Pacific in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

And for the first time in forever, I will be away from my virtual desk and cannot live blog the event. How can this be?  Poor planning on my part – or multi- tasking which clearly went out of my control. 

However, you can watch the event on Apple.Com or stream it via your Apple TV. 

And, speaking of Apple TV, get ready to be dazzled by an all-new, Siri-enabled Apple TV, one which will take your entertainment preferences to the next level. Or next several levels.  And, if we believe the rumours, this new Apple TV will come equipped with a new remote and Siri capability which will make surfing for shows, music, gaming etc. incredibly easy and seamless. 

Also, set for the grand unveiling is the new IPhone, iPad Pro and Watch OS2.  Additionally, the availability of iOS 9 and OS X update El Capitan will be revealed. 

Apparently, the new phone will be named iPhone 6 S. Again with the “S”. What does this S stand for?  $$$$$$?   Or is it a tribute to Apple Co-Founder and CEO, the late Steve Jobs.  Please enlighten me Apple or somebody out in the blogosphere hit the comments below and have your say. I am confused! 
And if, like me, you cannot watch the event in real time – oh my goodness, I am dying inside just saying these words – you can stream it later on by clicking on Apple.Com or the Apple Event App on your Apple TV.  

Poor Apple TV 3 – the September 9th Event will quite possibly be one of the last things I view on it. I will be all over that new Apple TV unit and handing over its pre-decessor to family members. 

If you are watching live, feel free to jump in and add updates in the comments section below. 

Apple TV Streaming Service Is Coming Your Way Sooner Than Later. 

 Apple TV Get ready to cut the cord – the cable cord that is!   According to the New York Post, Apple Inc. honchos are in final negotiations with the major U.S. networks – ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX – to offer consumers live streaming television broadcast via their little black hockey puck known as the Apple TV Unit. 

This has been a monumental feat for Apple.  In hindsight, the development of iTunes and Apple Music for music streaming must seem like a walk in the park compared to the copyright clearance and financial negotiations encountered when dealing with the television industry people.

Surprise! Taylor Swift’s New Album – 1989 – To Stream On Apple Music On June 30th 

 Taylor Swift 1989 

Well, that didn’t take long, did it?   Looks like Taylor Swift and Apple made “nice, nice” after this past week’s -uhm – “misunderstanding“.

According to Taylor Swift’s Twitter account, the popular recording artist has decided to release her 1989 Album for streaming on Apple Music

Apple Music is scheduled to go live on Tuesday, June 30th and, although Taylor Swift stipulated that the album will  initially be released to Apple for live streaming, it will be available to other streaming sites, such as Spotify, in the future.  Just not now. Because that would not play well with Apple

So, as predicted here a couple of days ago, it seems that this lovely, very creative and oh so fun PR stunt played out as planned. And just in time for the launch of Apple Music

I love when show business and technology collide. My two favourite worlds. Steve Jobs dream really has come true over and over and over again.
