The DoBox Mini can turn your iPad/iPhone into a full-feature computer… with ports!

I doubt Tim Cook or Steve Jobs would have envisioned the need for such a product only because iOS is, in itself, designed to be used for mobile tasks… but the iOS devices we carry around today are undoubtedly extremely powerful. On the hardware front, the iPad Pro is as hardcore as an Xbox One, and the iPhone has the processor speed of a low-end laptop… so it’s fair to say that their mobile operating system sort of limits their abilities. The DoBox Mini lets you overcome that.This small alumin...

Apple is Cannes Lions' 2019 Creative Marketer of the Year

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has named Apple its 2019 Creative Marketer of the Year—a prize the brand hasn’t won until now, despite its impact on advertising over the decades. The honor, to be awarded by organizers of the advertising festival on the French Riviera next month, is likely bittersweet for Apple: It comes years after the 2011 death of co-founder Steve Jobs but signals that the company’s creative legacy continues without him. The festival introduced the ...

Apple CEO Tim Cook Tells Graduates To 'Push Back' Against Belief-Reinforcing Algorithms

3 things brands can learn from Apple’s struggle to stay on top

Steve Jobs and Jony Ive called the small design studio I worked at asking for help back in 1997. They wanted us to create a new desktop computer that would save Apple from going under. We accepted the challenge and created the multi-colored iMac. Apple quickly climbed out of its financial hole and is now valued at $1 trillion. Although this is a great success story (and being able to say Steve Jobs asked for our help is pretty cool) creating a one time innovation doesn’t guarantee evergreen succ...

How the Apple Store Lost Its Luster (slashdot)

In interviews with Bloomberg, current and former Apple employees say brand building became more important than serving shoppers.

How the Apple store lost its 'wow' factor

Web Smith’s recent experience at his local Apple store in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, has been an exercise in frustration. There was the time he visited the Easton Town Center location to buy a laptop for his 11-year-old daughter and spent almost 20 minutes getting an employee to accept his credit card. In January, Smith was buying a monitor and kept asking store workers to check him out, but they couldn’t because they were Apple “Geniuses” handling tech support and not sales. “It took ...

Steve Jobs Shares a Secret for Success: Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

In 1994—the year Apple co-founder Steve Jobs filmed an interview with The Silicon Valley Historical Association in which he encouraged people to go for what they want by enlisting others’ assistance—there was no social media, no Kickstarter, no GoFundMe, no Patreon…  email was just becoming a thing. Back then, asking for help meant engaging in a face-to-face or voice-to-voice real time interaction, something many people find intimidating. Not so young Jobs, an electronics nut who re...

How You Can More Accurately Predict the Future of Design, Using Steve Jobs' "Lost Speech" from 1983 as an Example

I'm currently researching the potential of predicting the impact of future technologies. Hearing of this, a friend told me "You should listen to that 1983 Steve Jobs speech." "About what?" I asked. Jobs gave a lot of speeches in the early 1980s, and I wondered how that would be helpful. "The one where he predicted the iPad," he said. Okay, he got my attention. My friend was referring to what is known as the "Lost Steve Jobs speech." In 1983 Jobs delivered a talk to a group of designers at the In...
