Apple’s announced the iPhone 5c, bringing an assortment of vibrant colors to what essentially is an iPhone 5 in a plastic casing. It’s a smart move by Apple that will benefit them and customers. They get to save a few dollars by cutting costs by shedding the plastic shell, market it as a new product and customers get a great sub-$100 iPhone. One move that has me a bit surprised is the decision to go with the black front panel or at a minimum, offer a few color choices with white as an option.
Marimba, the default ringtone that has been standard on all iPhones since 2007 is gone, but not forgotten. In an era of cheesy midi ringtones, Apple raised the bar with the first iPhone. So distinct, so recognizable and patently iPhone. During the early days of iPhone, hearing this tone would cause people to look up and gaze with appreciation at the gorgeous slab of cellular technology. Over the years, the tone has become synonymous with the iPhone, but that’s all changing with iOS 7. We knew they would strip every stitch of skeuomorphic linen fabric, but not our beloved Marimba […]
Now that there are not one, but two new iPhones, the story shifts to purchase decisions. Should you upgrade, what color looks best and the all important decision of iPhone storage capacity.

For company often lauded for the their design decisions, today we were provided proof that with all of the great moves, Apple can still push out a clunker. The iPhone 5c case has got to be one of the worst product designs in recent history.
Apple today unveiled what many had hoped would be a cheap iPhone. We’re now realizing that such an animal doesn’t existing. The iPhone 5c as it’s called, really does stand for ‘colorful’. Underneath the hood are specs that are not much different from the now-jettisoned iPhone 5. Both the now old iPhone 5 and new iPhone 5c are powered by Apple’s A6 processor. A 4-inch retina display, also a fixture on both models with a resolution of 136-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. Both have an 8MP iSight camera with panorama, f/2.4 aperture, LED flash and a backside illumination sensor. The […]
Apple has been reluctant to to manufacture a big iPhone, leaving many wondering if it’s a case of can’t or won’t go big. Next week we’ll see not one, but two iPhones, but neither will be the iPhone many, but certainly not all users want from Apple. If prognosticators are correct, they will announce the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, a low-cost model that will be a win for both Apple and consumers. For many, the focus will once again be on Apple’s flagship. The existing customer base doesn’t care about cheap iPhones. For them, it’s all about the […]

We have serious relationships with our trusted iPhones. They’re reliable, dependable, and they don’t talk back. Well, Siri does, but only when we want her to. When you’ve got a serious relationship with an actual human being, there are certain signals that let you know when it’s time to take the next step of dating formality.
