Hey, it turns out that Apple isn’t going to be strapped for cash after all. That’s a relief, eh?

How #smartphones are transforming personal #healthcare – an annotated infographic

  More than 1.2 million people living in London are to be offered medical diagnosis using Babylon – an “artificial intelligence” (AI) app which gives patients access to a virtual health service in their pocket.

#Apple launch event, September 2015 – Hey Siri, are we getting close? – an annotated infographic

Ahead of yet another major Apple event, we pontificate on what shiny new delights the Cupertino computing conglomerate might bedazzle us with. Wednesday’s 09-09-15 launch event (taking date scheduling tips from that other Apple, mayhaps?) will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. As it happens, this is the same venue where the late Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple II computer waaaaay back in 1977. The circle remains unbroken. This time around, the company has a veritable “slew” of new products (what a terribly unattractive word “slew” is), making this week’s event possibly Apple’s biggest to … Continue reading #Apple launch event, September 2015 – Hey Siri, are we getting close? – an annotated infographic

#Apple profits go through the roof as the #iPhone6 takes off in China – an annotated infographic

Apple: officially not short of a few quid. The California-based, Chinese manufacturer-preferring computer giant reported first quarter profits of $18 billion – the biggest ever made by a public company. The profits were boosted by record sales of iPhones, with Apple shifting 74.5 million iPhones in the three months to December 27. It seems redundant to qualify this statement by adding that this was well ahead of most analysts’ expectations. Ironically, it’s the Chinese thinking global, buying local that has powered much of this growth, with sales up over 70 per cent in that territory. Apparently this iPhone boom equates … Continue reading #Apple profits go through the roof as the #iPhone6 takes off in China – an annotated infographic
