The Yin and Yang of the Galaxy Fold

Many Apple fans are enjoying sitting back and watching Samsung squirm their way through a disastrous product launch…again. You can’t excuse the sloppiness of the Galaxy Fold and how rushed it was in the race to be first to market. An attempt to be innovative isn’t enough to cover up the hardware failures and suspect design.

All that said, while it is easy to make fun of “the enemy” when they fail, that really doesn’t accomplish anything productive. No more so than when fans of Samsung’s products throw stones at Apple for playing it safe or for iterating on or polishing up existing features. In truth, there is good and bad to both company’s approaches.

Failure to Launch: AirPower Shows Off Some of the Best and Worst of Apple

At this point, I’m sure that everyone is aware of what happened with the long-delayed AirPower. The news itself is certainly interesting, as Jobs and post-Jobs Apple had always been bulletproof in its ability to deliver on announced products. This time it didn’t, and I think this failure simultaneously shows off some of the best and worst aspects of the company.

If you have been reading here since late last year, you know I am getting twitchy waiting for Apple to release their refreshed AirPods. I lost mine last Summer and there were enough rumors that a small refresh that would feature wireless charging and Hey Siri support would be coming by the Fall that I held off replacing them. This was in early August, so it wouldn’t be that long, right?

Apple’s Coming Event Rumored to be March 25th

Yesterday, I posted on the latest iPad Mini rumors, saying that the more the reports pick up, the closer we are getting to an announcement event. Well today, BuzzFeed reported that Apple’s Spring Event will take place March 25th, which seems to line up with their dates for Spring events the last two years. This also syncs up with rumors that new hardware will be available on March 29th.

It won’t be long now. An Apple Event to announce a new iPhone lineup and potentially several other devices is less than a month away. The fact that there are three new phones coming is really old news. Like 10 months old, at this point. The rumor mill never sleeps, right? The sizes, screen types, resolutions, astrological signs, etc of these phones have also been widely publicized over the last six months. We are close enough to the event now that this information should actually be reliable. Honestly, its nice to see that the leakers got it right this year. It’s been relatively drama free now that no one really cares about notches, missing headphone jacks, or the end of TouchID.

Are You Ready for Some New Apple Hardware?

Despite the fact that we just got brand new hardware from Apple just yesterday in the HomePod, let’s be honest. It isn’t for everyone. However, thanks to Apple’s wide ranging product lineup, there’s always something else coming just around the corner. In this case, it may be sooner than you think. According to a few different reports over the last week or so, we have a pretty good idea about as many as eight new Apple products that will be released over the course of this year.

AirPower- What’s In a Name?

Apple teased its coming wireless charging pad during its iPhone event last week, but we didn’t get too many details. We know that it is compatible with the Qi wireless charging standard, and that Apple has said that they may include compatibility with other Qi-compliant devices. We also know that it will work with the new iPhones 8, 8 Plus, and X, all Apple Watches, and Apple’s AirPods with the new Wireless Charging Case that is coming soon. But that’s about all the news that’s fit to print, for now.
