One of the world’s most prosperous companies, Apple is known for its iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac, MacBook, iTunes and App Store products and services. Based in Cupertino, California, the company has been helmed by CEO Tim Cook since August 2011, a month before former CEO – and co-founder – Steve Jobs died. Expect to see unbiased news, reviews and opinion on Apple and its products in Gizmodo UK’s Apple hub here.
Ass was pretty bad, but the global 8th grade iPhone 4S giggle-fest continues. Georgian Gizmodo reader Shota (from the country, no the state, homie) says "siri" is the Georgian word for "cock." Not the bird. This should be good.
This didn't take a lot of time. The obligatory Hitler gets angry about the iPhone 4S video is out. My favorite phrase: "I want people to know that I'm better than they are". It's funny because it's true.
Once upon a time, new iPods were the event for Apple. Yesterday, Apple talked iPods for all of 10 minutes. No radical new features. No surprises. If yesterday was any indication, all iPods—not just the Classic—have nearly reached the end of their innovation cycle.
You'd think the smart people at Apple might check for this kind of thing in advance, but alas. Japan's giggling in the wake of iPhone 4S' birth, as voice control wizard Siri sounds a lot like shiri—ass. Oops!
Tim Cook's probably still riding high off last night's coke-and-hooker iPhone 4S afterparty, and Samsung's already trying to ruin the fun. Reuters reports the bitter patent ex-girlfriend is seeking a total iPhone 4S sales ban in Italy and France.
Gizmodo and their new UK branch are still excluded from Apple events because of a certain "kerfuffle" last year, which meant we weren't able to bring you hands-on photos and video. Not to worry though, as our new UK sibling TechRadar still graces Apple's good books. For now, anyway.
Nerves get to you when you have to follow on from the master of the reality distortion field. A potentially lacklustre product to launch under the colossal global attention only Apple manages to generate. Tim Cook certainly had his hands full. [Funny or Die]
This just blew my mind. Back in 1987 Apple made a video about a future computer that would have a touchscreen with a computerize assistant you could talk to. They were off in their prediction by only 18 days. Wow.
Straight up: I'm a little disappointed with the new iPhone 4S. I was hoping for more. My expectations were higher. I wanted something extra special, largely because I've been waiting for it for So. Very. Long.
The bounty was plentiful, though there were a few pieces of rotten fruit inside, according to our cynical commenters. Still, if you want to catch up on all the announcements, here they are in one handy list:
It's been over four years since the first iPhone came out, and a lot has changed, from the screen to the CPU to the form factor. How drastic has this change been over the years? Here's a look at the iPhone's evolution, from 1 to 4S.
With iOS 5 coming out next Wednesday, Apple just opened the flood gates to the general market seed on their developer site. This release will probably have all the goodies you can expect for the final version. We'll let you know what's changed. [BGR]
