Apple's Poster to Commemorate the Fifth AppStore Birthday



Looks like Apple has hired a new guy responsible for all kinds of graphics and the way Apple gadgets look. At first he paints new ‘cheap’ iPhones red, green and yellow, then completely redesigns iOS 7 and after that persuades the executives to register a new FaceTime logo, which he likes immensely, as a trademark.

Well, there’re probably some other reasons for all that to happen, of course, but it really seems that Apple is currently centered primarily on the appearance – in addition to the things mentioned above, it has released a new poster commemorating the fifth anniversary of AppStore, Tim Bradshaw of Financial Times reports.

New Must-Watch Samsung Anti-Apple Ad



Samsung releases… no, not another Galaxy device with an enormous screen. This time it’s an ad, to be more precise – an anti-Apple one, of course. It comes from Iceland and I bet you have never ever seen anything stranger than this short video.

As to the plot – a man is holding a nice red apple in his hand and tries hard to make a call. Quite predictably, he fails to do that. After another unsuccessful attempt, the man gets upset and depressed. But then he somehow gets a new Galaxy S4 and that’s it – all problems immediately disappear.

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.
