Apple Event: September 12, 2018 Round Up

Today, Apple announced some great new products, of course, the show stealer is the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but they also announced a less expensive iPhone X product called iPhone XR. Unfortunately, my live blogging platform failed at the last minute, in spite of the fact that we tested the system yesterday to make sure that it would work, so I ended up having to do a Live Event on Twitter. For those of you that were able to join me there, this post is will cover the highlights of what you saw on Twitter. If you weren’t able to join me for the Event live, that’s fine. That’s what the round up post is for.

Look at the end of this post for some improvements coming to HomePod that did not receive the full treatment from Apple during today’s Event along with a few other highlights that may have been missed in the keynote.… [Read More] “Apple Event: September 12, 2018 Round Up”

I’m Back with News on the Fall Apple Event!

Good afternoon!

After a nearly three year hiatus, Random Gemini is back and she is bigger and badder than ever! The blog has a new look, a new logo and a whole new attitude! Weirdly, I am planning out posts in advance and I have a great one coming up for you on Wednesday.

This week, I will be LIVEBLOGGING the 2018 Fall Apple Event.

There’s a lot of speculation about what’s being announced this week, but a lot less since Apple accidentally leaked a photo of the upcoming iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4 at the end of August. Expect to see a larger, higher resolution display with a faster CPU and major Watch OS improvements for Apple Watch Series 4 for sure.

The image leaked of the new iPhone XS shows two different iPhone XS models. One big and one small, much like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.… [Read More] “I’m Back with News on the Fall Apple Event!”

Apple Releases iPad!

This morning, I realized a little late that the State of the Union Address was today. For those of you that follow me on twitter, you might have noticed my tweet somewhere around 9 am this morning that read as follows: “LOL! comment on engadget: “I’m more excited about Job’s state of the union address than Obama’s… What does that say about us?” This was promptly picked up by the Obama twitter bot. The reality is that I realized that the state of the union address was today when I read that comment on Engadget. … [Read More] “Apple Releases iPad!”

Palm Pre: iPhone Killer or Dud in the Making?

The Pre is hitting shelves at Sprint stores on June 6th.

Yes, I really did say Sprint. Sprint, with its shrinking customer network. Sprint with its crappier than Verizon customer service. Sprint, with its “cheap” calling plans. Sprint with its cellular coverage that is so poor that it’s the reason that Verizon, AT&T and T Mobile are the taking the carrier world by storm in North America. Sprint had its chance. I’m surprised they’re still in business and admit it, so are you.… [Read More] “Palm Pre: iPhone Killer or Dud in the Making?”
