Techlectic ... by Pat Hoover

Apple’s Big Birthday
Apple’s new multi-billion dollar Cupertino, CA world-HQ “campus” was unveiled to hundreds of journalists and techies from around the world. Those in attendance gathered in the new Steve Jobs Theatre and millions  watched online. The September 12th announcement included first looks at iOS 11 and eight new pieces of Apple hardware, including three new iPhone iterations; the new Apple Watch; TV; and its new, Home device. Ostensibly celebrating the 10th year anniversary of the original iPhone, the live stream event will likely serve to further cement Apple’s global dominance in the new world order.

Real Life Significance 
Bet on it! The three new (expected) iPhones, the 8, 8+ and the so called iPhone X have been reported to significantly improve the iPhone environment. Apple will reportedly be moving its new mobile phone to an entirely new screen technology, OLED. Black coloring appears far darker and colors are far more vibrant with OLED but the real difference to my thinking is the greatly improved outdoor full sun viewing experience. If the newly anticipated iPhone screen display lives up to its claims, this feature alone will elevate the new iPhone to one more Apple “must have” for gazillions of us. But far more than merely a new screen, the reality is that Apple’s September 12th announcement unleashed a vast array of very real, very significant technology development. 

Do we need it? Do any of the newly launched Apple products amount to something so new, so groundbreaking, we have to have it? Hard to say until the new product launch, but I’m gonna make a laymen-lawyer prediction and a promise. I believe the answer to the ultimate buy or wait question is a resounding buy and as a result, you will find me online at 11:59 p.m. on the night of the first opportunity to buy the new Apple iPhone!  More to come…
