Apple’s Orders to Make About 10% of TSMC’s Revenue in 2014





Apple’s orders for 20-nanometer chips are expected to make about 10% of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s revenue in 2014. According to AppleInsider, the Taiwanese manufacturer will produce a large part of Apple’s A-series processors. What that means is that the company from Cupertino is trying to get rid of its dependance on Samsung, which is currently one of Apple’s main chip suppliers.

Take a Look at 'Space Gray' iPod Nano



iPod nano has got a 'Space Gray' color to match the latest iPhone 5s. Does this mean the company from Cupertino will no longer produce new devices in black? Who knows.

Below you may take a look at Ben Pasternak’s video showing the slightly redesigned in terms of color Apple’s player.

Here’s the description from YouTube:

Got my hands on the latest color option when purchasing a iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch or a iPhone 5S "Space Gray". I give you all a first look at this color on the iPod Nano.

If to speak about me, although the 'Space Gray' iPod nano looks OK, I’d rather buy a black one. And what color would you prefer?

TSMC will produce A-Series Chips for Apple.



According to Wall Street Journal, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) has agreed to supply Apple with A-series chips. Although the matter has been discussed since 2010, the deal was only signed this month, and TSMC starts producing some of the chips in 2014. By that time, the Taiwan company will improve the quality of the products so that they meet Apple’s requirements. The chips will become smaller and more energy efficient by using 20-nanometre technology.

When negotiating the deal, the American company offered either to invest in TSMC or to assign one factory as an exclusive Apple supplier. However, the Taiwan company did not accept either of the options to keep TSMC independent and adaptable.

Samsung used to be Apple’s main A-series chips supplier, but present ferocious competition between the companies is forcing the latter to diminish its dependence on the Korean company.

Apple Launches Online Store for Russia



Apple today launched its online store in Russia. The move had been expected for quite some time. Reports from last year revealed that the Apple had registered a new company in Russia with intentions to launch direct sales in the country.

In order to expand into Russian territory, Apple as registered a company called Apple Rus and assigned Vitaly Morozk, the company's local legal advisor as its director general. It is alleged that Apple executives travelled to Moscow in 2011 to find premises for an Apple store but did not find anything suitable. Apple opened the iTunes Store online in 2009.

It's unclear when or whether the company intends to open any physical Apple Retail Stores in the country.

Revolutionary Graphene Camera Sensor Will Greatly Improve Low Light Photography



Engineers at Nanyang Technological University have developed a revolutionary new camera sensor that is a thousand times more sensitive than the ones currently on the market, reports Science Daily. The sensor is made from graphene and is apparently the first that can detect broad spectrum light from the visible to mid-infrared with high photoresponse or sensitivity.

Graphene is a million times smaller than the thickest human hair (only one-atom thick) and is made of pure carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. It is known to have a high electrical conductivity among other properties such as durability and flexibility.

Apple's smart iWatch will launch in mid 2014



KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been fairly accurate regarding Apple hardware releases, claims that Apple's smart watch will not be released until the end of 2014.

Apple may not have adequate resources to develop an iWatch version of iOS because it may require big changes to iPhone and iPad iOS this year. In addition, wearable device components aren’t mature. For these reasons, we think mass production of the iWatch is more likely to begin in 2H14, not 2H13 as the market speculates.

iPhone 5 confirmed to use nano-SIM, current SIMs not compatible



iphone5-pr-34-angle

Apple did not mention that iPhone 5 would use the recently approved (and Apple-designed) nano-SIM standard. Apple is relying on that even tinier subscriber module for GSM, HSPA and LTE networks. Unfortunately it is not possible to create nano-SIM out of micro-SIM. Cutting does not help, they are just not compartible.
