Apple wants the latest iPhone installed in india starting next year. After several discussions between Apple Company and the Government of India, it is expected that India will be the latest hub for Apple to produce the iPhone.

It is said that the selection of the Bangalore location in India as Apple’s new assembly plant will provide an opportunity for Apple to offer a lower Apple iPhone to consumers. This is due to slightly lower labor costs in India compared to Apple’s assembly plant in China.

In addition, the production of iPhones in India gives Apple a license to sell more iPhones as the Government of India is blocking the sale of refurbished iPhones in the country.

Apple First Outlet in Southeast Asia

Apple First Outlet in Southeast Asia

Apple brought a twist to their Apple first outlet in Southeast Asia. May 27, 2017 is definitely a very meaningful date for Apple Singapore on the launch of Apple’s latest outlet. To this knowledge, this latest Apple outlet is Apple’s 21st branch as well as the first in Southeast Asia.

Since it is an Apple outlet, the goods sold are definitely equipped with a variety of special products from this brand based in Cupertino, California.

Meanwhile, Apple Singapore has managed to bring a difference to their outlets by highlighting eco -friendly outlets. Not only decorated with trees, Apple Singapore is also powered through renewable resources.

In terms of design, this 46 -foot and 2 -storey building still brings a minimalist and modern concept in line with its brand.

One of the things that makes Apple’s official outlet look different is the Today at Apple program. For your information, Today at Apple is one of Apple’s initiatives to educate and teach their users to be more savvy in using Apple products.

Loyalty

In addition to increasing consumer satisfaction, the move is also seen as one of Apple’s ways to further increase consumer loyalty to their brand.

True to its name, the program is held daily with a different teaching schedule. For example, tomorrow, June 6, 2017, Apple Singapore has held a photography workshop using an iPhone; specifically for those who are interested in learning lighting and shadow techniques.

If you are a tech enthusiast or a fan of Apple products; Apple Singapore located on Orchard Road may be one of the destinations you should visit if visiting Singapore. This Orchard Road is one of the places in Singapore that is very popular; that is one of the reason why Apple decided to put one of their Apple store there. So there is a lot of traffic going in and out.

Symmetry of Apple Watch

Symmetry of Apple Watch

“I think this has to do with symmetry of Apple Watch, which is about details and not about the Apple brand developing earlier than other brands.

“If the hand shows 10:10, then the long hand will block 1/6 between 10; and 11 on the surface of the clock.

“If the short needle is positioned exactly at 2 o’clock, the long and short needles will not look balanced. And it is located at 10:09 then its position is more symmetrical.

“That sounds more like Apple’s logic to me,” he said.

Reinforcing the theory that says Apple wants something different; from other branded watches is a view from the previous Business Insider portal explaining the 9.41 time selection.

According to a report from the portal, the selection of 10.09 instead of 10.10 symbolizes the desire; and statement from Apple that wants to be ahead compared to other watch manufacturers.

This timepiece is also unique to Apple as is the unique selection of world branded watch manufacturers such as Rolex, TAG Heuer, TIMEX and Bell & Ross.

For Example

Rolex maintains the uniqueness of their Apple watch display to be promoted with a time of 10:10:31, TAG Heuer with 10:10:37 and Apple in turn remains unique with 10:09:00 or 10:09:30.

Simply put, this one minute early selection indirectly shows that they are one step ahead of other brands; in addition to maintaining their own uniqueness.

Although there is no official and concrete statement on the selection of the time by Apple but it is hoped that with the explanation and information that has been provided will be able to answer some of the questions behind the selection of the time of the watch which is slightly different from other brands.

Did you know Apple recently also reportedly will be supplying a smaller battery on their next model; which is the iPhone 13?

Display on Apple Watch

Display on Apple Watch

Why is 10:09 often display on Apple Watch for promotional purposes? Ever had when you were in a watch store and the time displayed on the clock showed exactly 10:10? Not only in stores; even if you look at promotional ads on various platforms for watches are also mostly fixed at this time.

To answer the question on the matter, the clock hand placed at 10.10 is actually related to the appearance; or more precisely the position of the logo on the clock displayed.

The watchmakers are understood to think that the needle placed at the 10.10 time position will give space to their brand logo to look more beautiful; and more suitable to be displayed to customers.

However, unlike other watchmakers, the Apple technology company that produces the Apple Watch has set a time of one minute in advance on their watch displays for advertising and promotional purposes, namely at 10:09 and 9:41.

This indirectly raises questions among consumers; and observers who wonder if the real reason the brand from the United States is not just following what other watch manufacturers have done before.

Why 9:41 and 10:09?

The most popular theory as reported by Business Insider is; because it is said to be synonymous with the launch time of the first iPhone model; by Steve Jobs in 2007.

In the event, Jobs launched the first iPhone model at 9:41 am; and to this day it is still understood to be one of the strongest theories saying; why the clock on this Apple Watch is set at that time.

Not only does it use a 9.41 clock display as mentioned earlier, but Apple also takes a different approach compared to most other watch manufacturers when not using the 10.10 setting but instead they choose 10.09.

As for the answer to why they chose 10.09; it is believed to be because Apple is understood to want a variation; as suggested by Dave Mark on The Loop portal.

Clear Product Description in Apple

Clear product description in Apple starts with the story of how Apple is so ‘worried’ about the problems faced by consumers and then tells the story of their journey in solving them.

To strengthen support for their products, Apple invites experts in related fields to explain in style that is full of confidence in the innovations made.

Research done

I see the storytelling of this product research more; to show how serious the Apple company is in producing a product to convince consumers.

Telling about the use of this high quality material indirectly makes customers feel; that the expensive price set by Apple is relevant and worthwhile to get. Man when you touch the surface, you just know the quality feeling.

Apple’s intention is that at the end of their ads, customers will know their product is trusted by experts, has been produced after some research is done and coupled with the ‘hype’ of the brand itself will make customers get it. Their sales volume each year explains everything.

Why is Apple often the victim of ‘bullying’?

Riding the popularity or ‘ride the hype’ is also often done by other companies to market their products successfully. This is why you will see only Apple ads that are targeted to be used as ‘parody’ material. As a result, ads like this easily get the attention of consumers while enhancing their brand name.

Undoubtedly, some of the technological ‘innovations’ that Apple has done are not the best or the first. But this style of advertising and marketing from Apple has always been a reference for other giant companies. Who would have thought that Steve Jobs ’idea with this teammate managed; to be an evergreen idea at least for the last decade.

McDonald Ad About Apple

McDonald Ad About Apple

What I learned behind the McDonald ad about Apple was trying to ‘troll’ apple. You may know McDonald’s as a fast food restaurant with a large network around the country. Producing new menus to attract people is already an obligation in their business.

But if you look at recently McDonald’s USA has started to introduce limited edition items specifically to attract the attention of young people. Among them are smart keyboards, nail polishes, speakers and the latest product released by McDonald’s is a drink dispenser. Yes, it’s just a regular drink dispenser and it’s known as ‘the STRAW’.

The drink dispenser ad that I initially remember was just a parody seems to have come into existence after McDonald’s was about to release a total of 2,000 units of ‘the STRAW’ specifically for McDonald’s around the United States. Let’s watch this ad first before I discuss about Apple’s ad techniques as well as other companies.

Done watching? Indeed, trolls have run out of ways for McDonald’s to introduce a drink dispenser that is full of ‘innovation’. Starting with the way of presentation using a British accent, a confident facial expression and last but not least is to show the study conducted by the researchers.

Background

Most important is the white background which has become a trademark for every Apple ad. It’s just as true as Apple’s ads.

Still, have you ever wondered why Apple is so consistently producing ads that have almost the same concept and storyline for all products.

Even more ironic when this approach is done by companies that spend big on marketing every year. It’s impossible that Apple doesn’t have a better idea after displaying almost the same advertising style for so long.

The answer is because the ads displayed by Apple are not only still relevant but also managed to ‘flick’ the hearts of consumers to get Apple products despite being overpriced by users of Apple products.

Nike Apple Watch

Apple is a technology company that has proven to have a well -established ecosystem between its Nike Apple watch devices.

Apple is also aware of the interest of most users of ‘smartwatch’ or ‘fitness band’ towards ‘fitness’ and ‘health’, especially among runners and also ‘sport enthusiasts’.

The Apple Watch 1 has begun to combine the functionality of a ‘smartwatch’ with a ‘fitness band’.

But the ‘fitness’ app offered by the Watch OS may be a bit simple for runners and ‘outdoor runners’ want the GPS function not available on the Apple Watch 1 to map their runs outside.

Nike is the number 1 sports brand in the world.

In terms of design and technology for sportswear and equipment, Nike has a ‘strong presence’.

Nike is also aware, technology now plays a huge role in sports.

Apple’s current presence in the ‘smartwatch’ segment is an opportunity for these two giants to join their respective strengths.

It is still too early to celebrate the Apple Watch 2 Nike+ will be successful; but it has shown good cooperation from Apple and Nike.

In addition to the same functions as other Apple Watch 2 such as GPS, waterproof 50 meters; and higher pixels, designed a special band that attracts specifically for runners and ‘sport ethusiast’.

These are two tech and sports giants whose branding is very strong.

Nike has previously taken a step towards ‘fitness wearables’ with the Nike Fuelband and received encouraging response.

But fierce competition from Fitbit, Garmin, Samsung and even Pebble in this segment has left Nike behind.

Surely some are wondering what was the reason behind Nike and Apple’s decision to work together to produce the Apple Watch 2 Nike+. Even Nike has shut down Fuelband.

For me it was a decision that benefited both parties.

Apple Is Ready for Bitcoin

A report from ChainLeak CEO, Joshuwa Roomsburg, informed that Apple is ready for Bitcoin worth $ 2.5 billion (~ RM10.48 billion). He who is quite hopeful with these rumors said he is ready to support Apple by getting the latest iPhone and for use as decoration.

For the record, the price of Bitcoin was soaring by 20%; after Tesla announced the purchase of Bitcoin for $ 1.5 billion around the beginning of last February.

For cryptocurrency investors, there are certainly many who expect these rumors to be true; because they are able to boost the price of cryptocurrency; after falling following China’s decision to ban the use of cryptocurrency in recent months. This is a decision that severely limits the freedom to use decentralized money.

Around last April, there were reports that Malaysia’s first Apple Store; was expect to open at The Exchange TRX as early as next year. So the news can be interpret as Apple’s step towards the world of cryptography that follows the times.

The launch of the iMac Pro gives a sigh of relief to Apple’s ‘power users’ after Apple did not make the latest update on the Mac Pro lately.

‘Power user’ I mean refers to users who want the best specifications as well as smoothness and speed in rendering high quality video. Not to forget also for users who often do work that requires high processing power.

Shape

In terms of design, Apple still maintains the same design as the previous iMac. But one notable difference seen on the iMac Pro is the space gray color; which to me looks more modern and elegant.

Apple’s initiative to keep the design of the iMac still seems relevant; as it still looks slim and is able to include sophisticated components.

Not only, the iMac is given a space gray finish; but Apple also introduced the Apple Magic Keyboard that comes with the numpad and the Apple Magic Mouse in black.

Unfortunately, Apple users can only get these 2 devices by getting the iMac Pro only as they are not sold separately.

Specifications

Talking about the specs, I can say Apple seems to be very serious and committed to giving the best through their latest models.

The iMac Pro is equipped with an Intel Xeon 18-core CPU processor; allowing the iMac Pro’s hyper-treading work to run smoothly. In terms of graphics, Apple chose to use AMD Vega; and it is rumored that AMD’s latest graphics are capable of supporting up to 16GB of VRAM.

Apple Fake Motivation

Apple Fake Motivation

How do I try Apple fake motivation myself?

Ok, how do I try to “fake motivation” myself?

After reading the iWoz book in a short time, the desire to read is still there.

So I opened the back of the Big Bad Wolf plastic bag looking for another book to read.

I chose 2 books…

The first book is a book that I think is easy to read and the second book that I think discusses interesting ideas.

Also Read: False Motivation in Apple 

Then I made the ultimatum below as fake motivation:

“As long as I don’t finish reading the first book, I can’t even open the second interesting book”.

Because what is fake? Because I bought the second book, I’m glad I want to read it before I finish the first book.

The trick to fake motivation is that the things we ‘force’ ourselves to do must be the things we like.

Like Woz, he really likes engineered floppy drives, just need a little push to complete quickly.

Like me, I really like the first book, it’s just that I rarely manage to finish a book in less than 2 days.

But when I used this fake motivation, I managed to finish the first book in less than 2 days, and felt more and more excited to read the second book.

So you can try this fake motivation.

If you can’t discipline yourself, ask for help from family members to be your ‘Mike Markkula’.

False Motivation in Apple

False Motivation in Apple

False motivation in Apple is what drive them to success. Back then floppy drives were a rather complicated new technology. Floppy drive sort of in this picture – Wiki to know more).

When something is difficult, new technology, there must be motivation to do.

As Woz tells in his book iWoz… he uses fake motivation or “fake motivation”.

Woz said to Mike, “If I manage to complete a floppy drive for the Apple II, can I go to CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas?”.

Mike said OK.

This is the ‘fake motivation’ for Woz to prepare a floppy drive for the Apple II.

Emmm… Why does Woz call this thing “fake motivation”?

Woz said, fake because he’s the co-founder of Apple. If he wants to go anywhere, he doesn’t really have to ask anyone’s permission.

He shares as much as Steve Jobs at the time (more than Mike shares).

Due to this fake motivation, Woz managed to complete a floppy drive for the Apple II. Ready to open a booth at CES to showcase the Apple II with this floppy drive.

After that, people didn’t see Commodore PET and Radio Shack TRS-80.

Apple II sales soared and Apple became rich ever since that day.

Summary

So, after reading the iWoz book, I recap what new things I can learn. Lots.

But this “fake motivation” is the most interesting and easiest to try yourself.

Before I tell you how I tried this fake motivation myself, let’s look at the lesson from this Apple II floppy drive story:

1. Mike Markkula is confident with his own company products (he himself uses the Apple II to do balance in business).

2. Mike Markkula did about in business even though at that time Apple was still small-about business is very important no matter how big the business.

3. Floppy drive is actually not in the planning to increase sales of Apple II, just want to solve Mike Markkula’s problem. But God’s plan is greater.

Apple Music Worth

Apple Music Worth

Is Apple Music worth it? If you’re an iOS user and want something that’s best and consistent in terms of content, options and functionality, Apple Music is definitely the most worthwhile option.

It can also be controlled using Siri, can also be accessed via Apple TV and PC using iTunes although still not accessible via web browser.

In terms of price, Apple offers prices comparable to its closest competitors. With an individual plan starting at RM14.90 per month or you can get a family plan that turns out to be more economical with a price of RM22.90 for a sharing of 6 users.

Android

Android users can also try Apple Music for themselves with the official app available on the Google Play Store. With a free full trial period for the first three months, it is the only music streaming service that provides a relatively long period of time for users to try it out.

How Steve Wozniak Used ‘Fake Motivation’ To Set Up Apple II Faster

In 1977, there were 3 major players in the personal computer (PC) industry:

1. Commodore PET
2. Radio Shack TRS-80
3. Apple II

At that time, all three PC models used “tape drives” to store software. (To the younger generation, please Wiki “tape drive” to better understand, because I myself am not old enough to use a tape drive on a PC).

Always crashes

Although the Apple II offers the highest speed for reading this tape drive (compared to other PCs), the sensitivity rate also increases.

Software in the Apple II is easy to crash.

Not content with that shortcoming, the price of the Apple II is 2 times more expensive than competitors. The Apple II is more expensive because it’s the only PC that provides color graphics. But the color graphics do not justify why their price should be 2 times more expensive, the software always crashes.

Not only are users depressed with this always-crashing software problem, but Mike Markkula-Apple’s first investor-is no longer able to bear it when he’s struggling to make a business balance using the Apple II.

Mike asked Steve Wozniak (Woz)-Apple’s co-founder-to design a “floppy drive” for the Apple II.

Browse in Apple Music

Browse in Apple Music

Browse in Apple Music makes it easy to find the latest and greatest songs. Apple Music has the largest music catalog compared to its nearest competitor Spotify, with 40 million songs. Most leading artists choose Apple Music because of its influence in the international music industry with the iTunes app. For example Taylor Swift released all her music catalogs on Apple Music as opposed to Spotify.

However, most local Malaysian artists promote the latest singles through Spotify because of its more social function. If you prefer a combination of an extensive and up -to -date song catalog, choose Apple Music. If not, Spotify might be the best option for you with a wider selection of local songs.

24 -hour ‘Radio’ hosted by leading DJs and artists

One of the additional functions that does not exist on any other music streaming app is Beats 1. A radio station that broadcasts live to 100 countries 24 hours a day.

What’s interesting about Beats 1 radio is that the programs contained in it are hosted by leading artists and DJs such as Elton John, Drake, Major Lazer and many more.

So far there is yet another option Malay Although Beats 1 tracks ever assembled Yuna songs a while ago. However, Radio is also not limited to live broadcasts. It also has a function where users can build a playlist of songs based on a specific song automatically.

All music collections in ‘Library’

All the music you store either through the Apple Music catalog, Beats 1 or iTunes is collected here. It is divide into certain categories such as Playlists, Albums and Videos.

The layout of the interface is also very simple despite consuming a lot of space on the screen due to the use of large fonts and buttons. I recommend the use of a one -finger swipe for more efficient navigation because of its concept of no longer compacting all the links in one page.

Apple Macbook Pro

Apple Macbook Pro

Apple is ready to offer the Apple Macbook Pro with the Apple M1 chip with a price starting from RM5,599. Unlike the iPhone, users will also receive a charger plug with the purchase of a Macbook Pro.

Also launched together are the Mac Mini and Macbook Air which are available at RM2,999 and RM4,399 respectively. Both models also come with the M1 chip. Together we look forward to further reviews on this latest Apple chip that has just been introduced.

For those of you who just own an iPhone, of course the first thing you do is download the app. But what about music? Most of us use music streaming apps like JOOX, Spotify and many more either for free or paid.

However, you may not have tried the Apple Music app that is available in every iOS device. Here is my experience using Apple Music throughout my one -year subscription.

What is Apple Music?

Apple Music is a music streaming app from Apple that is comparable to Spotify, TIDAL and most of its other competitors. Since it is available in every iOS device including iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, users only need to sign in with an existing Apple ID to start the 3 -month free trial period. The monthly subscription package after the end of the trial period is RM14.90 for individuals and RM22.90 for 6 family members.

Stuck with song selection? Start with ‘For You’

Users who first activate Apple Music will need to select three preferred music artists and genres so that Apple can suggest some related songs and albums.

At first it was a bit awkward with a selection of artists and songs that I had never heard of. But the choices built are getting better every week. Many say this functionality is Apple Music’s strength after taking over the company and app developer Beats Music which was once known for its best music algorithms.

One of the models that is the focus of many this time is definitely the Apple Macbook Pro. Maintaining the same design as last year’s model, this latest model is also equipped with the Apple M1 chip.

Commenting in terms of specifications, the Apple Macbook Pro comes with a 13-inch Retina screen, M1 chip as well as memory and storage support of up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB.
