The Evolution of Apple Ads

The Evolution of Apple Ads
Apple Ad – 1976 In the beginning, Apple was just like any other IT company. It spoke in babble and in words common men were not made to understand. It spoke of numbers. Of hardware. And specs. Read more…

Then and Now: How Apple Sold Computers

Then and Now: How Apple Sold Computers
This is a print ad for the Apple II from 1979. I heard from a distributor that although we’re exiting 2011, Apple always requests every region to come out with print ads and priority seems to be placed here, compared to online spending. Whether this is attributed to the age and inclinations of their overall Read more…

Read all the Books in Skyrim on your iPad

Read all the Books in Skyrim on your iPad
Bought Skyrim for the PS3 at launch. More than 50 quests, 24 in game days, more than 48 hours of game time spent. Wow. And I’ve just barely scratched the surface of one of the year’s most immersive titles. Bethesda sure put in a lot of detail into this masterpiece. Your armor loses its shine. Read more…

Battle Nations: Still playing it even if it has a Farmville Element

Battle Nations: Still playing it even if it has a Farmville Element
There’s a relatively new game out on the iTunes store and that’s Battle Nations. From the title description it seemed like a hex based strategy game similar to Advanced Wars or Final Fantasy Tactics. A free download later, I was mistaken. Battle Nations is a premium quality game for the iOS that combines the incessant Read more…

If Apple was a telco…

If Apple was a telco...
In a perfect world, Jobs wanted the iPhone to run 100% under his terms. That would mean not having to choose AT&T as an exclusive telco partner. It would mean seeding the idea of a phone that could run on an unlicensed network in the same way that we use WiFi. Walk in the heart Read more…

Steve Jobs wins even after death: Adobe kills Flash for Mobile

A video of Steve at the 2010 D8 conference elaborating on why he doesn’t like Flash. It seems like Steve’s reality distortion field is still functioning, even from the grave. Adobe announced today that it is killing Flash for future devices allowing HTML5 to win. Steve was violently opposed to Flash saying how it was Read more…

In the 80′s Apple Merchandise consisted of paperweights, notepads and kites

In the 80's Apple Merchandise consisted of paperweights, notepads and kites
It’s always refreshing to see the past. The 80′s were a darling decade and I remember growing up to the days when computers were starting to go mainstream and IT products were trying their darn best to market themselves into the mainstream. Open a box of any Apple product today and consider yourself lucky to Read more…

Spook your friends with HauntedFace and ZombieBooth this Halloween

Spook your friends with HauntedFace and ZombieBooth this Halloween
Every year we try to find ways to spook our friends and this time I cracked it with HauntedFace Lite and ZombieBooth Lite for the iPhone. Yeah sadly no universal version yet but it works fine on the iPad. The app is similar to Photo Booth effects but turns your face into a horrendous mistake Read more…

Learning from Apple’s advertising landmarks in the 80′s

Learning from Apple's advertising landmarks in the 80's
I came across some scans of some of Apple’s advertising material for print. Though from the 80′s they clearly define an emerging Apple trying to break free from the conventional ways of doing things, clearly defining their ‘Think Different’ campaign. Personally, I do find Apple circa 1980′s to have been a more interesting one as Read more…
