‘Moments In Asia’, A Trip to 11 Different Cities Beautifully Shot on an iPhone

WOW! Videos like these will be even better if they were to be shot on an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+. 

A collection of Apple Watch links and tidbits | Apple Spotlight

Have questions about the WATCH? Just visit link above and click away. This is probably the best WATCH-themed linked list on the web right now. 

Apple Spotlight

There is a lot written about Apple, its products, and related tech topics everyday. Apple Spotlight is a place for all of the important, interesting, or useful stuff – all in one place.

I want to take a moment here and give a shout-out to Mr. Rob Wensing’s new website. I’ve long been a fan of @Applespotlight twitter account but one can only do so much with a 140-character limit. This is where the website comes in. 

If you’re an Apple fan then keeping an eye on this website is a no brainer. It’ll save you the trouble of sorting through tons of garbage and click-bait to find the stuff that is worth reading. If you look through the archive then you’ll see that Mr. Rob is doing a stellar job of putting the stories in context, something that is pretty impossible to do on Twitter. 

Apple has a big keynote later today so today is as good a day as any to subscribe to the site’s RSS feed and weekly newsletter. You won’t regret it, i can promise you that.

The history of Apple SOCs and predicting the A8 chip

A look back at how Apple has leveraged the expertise that came with the acquisitions of companies like Intrinsity and PA Semi. Chris Jenkins also makes a few educated guesses about the A8 SoC. Well worth a read if you love reading about silicon chips.

7 Years of the iPhone: An Interactive Timeline

TIME have done a really good job with this one. Great stuff! 

If Apple were turned over to an ace team of pundits, analysts & journalists to run, it would be bankrupt by the spring of next year.

Harry McCracken. 

So true. If they knew how to run a company then they would be doing it.

Event Time Announcer - WWDC 2014 Keynote

Big day today for everyone who likes Apple. I’m super psyched ahead of today’s WWDC 2014 Keynote.

If your day is not dictated by Pacific daylight time (PDT) then this handy little chart will show you the exact time the keynote is scheduled to start in your timezone.

Apple will live-stream the keynote and you can watch it here

I believe that if Apple stuck by the What Would Steve Do playbook, it would truly be doomed—by looking backward and second-guessing key decisions based on strategies that are increasingly out of date. Steve Jobs famously changed his mind all the time, but his posthumous wisdom doesn’t have that capability. Instead, Apple executives are making interesting and risky decisions—just as Steve Jobs once did.

Quote excerpted from A tale of two Apples: Apple follows Steve’s lead by not following it.

A really smart take on the present day Apple in light of Beats acquisition.

A big thank you to @Applespotlight.

This means a lot me. Mr. Rob is very kind. If you want to keep up with the most essential Apple news of the day then follow @Applespotlight on Twitter. He will save you the trouble of sorting through tons of garbage and click-bait to find the stuff that is worth reading. 

The thing i like about this twitter is it is purely a labour of love at this point. The account has accrued 86k+ followers organically over the years through sheer and persistent excellence without resorting to buzzwordy tactics like growth-hacking.
