iPhone 6S Breaks Sales Record

October 6, 2015

iPhone 6S Breaks Sales Record
Many New Yorkers faced a serious dilemma last month: Join the crowd to see Pope Francis or stand in line to buy an iPhone 6S at the Apple Store?

Many chose the latter. Frenzied fanboys and fangirls lined up early outside Apple Stores in San Francisco, Sydney, Syracuse, SingaporeColorado Springs, Chicago, London, and Rancho Cucamonga. In Palo Alto, a robot stood in line and bought an iPhone. Sales of 13 million broke a launch weekend record.

So is the phone any good? Who cares. Ooh, rose gold!

The Future of Reading

August 27, 2015

The Future of Reading

“Ever since the first hand-held e-readers were introduced in the 1990s, the digital-reading revolution has turned the publishing world upside down. But contrary to early predictions, it’s not the e-reader that will be driving future book sales, but the phone.”

— — “The Rise of Phone Reading,” Jennifer Maloney, Wall Street Journal

Court Okays Secret Government Internet Switch

February 25, 2015

Court Okays Secret Government Internet Switch

From the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC):

“The federal court of appeals based in Washington, DC has ruled that the Department of Homeland Security may withhold from the public a secret procedure for shutting down cell phone service. EPIC pursued the DHS policy after government officials in San Francisco disabled cell phone service during a peaceful protest in 2011. EPIC sued DHS when the agency failed to release the criteria for network shutdowns. A federal judge ruled in EPIC’s favor. On appeal, the D.C. Circuit held for the DHS but said that the agency might still be required to disclose some portions of the protocol.”

Your Cell Phone Bill Should Be Going Down—But Isn't

“How much do you really know about 4G data service on your smartphone? Did you know that it not only provides you with faster data, but is also cheaper for cellular carriers to deliver? And yet it still costs you the same or more as slower 3G service?”

— “Why Your Cell-Phone Bill Should Be Going Down—But Isn’t,” Lauren Orsini, ReadWrite
