Marriage Proposal Coordinated and Filmed With iPhones [Video]





Modern people can’t live without their gadgets. Some of them can’t even make a marriage proposal without assistance of the iPhone! Just like Frank, who used multiple iPhones to coordinate and secretly film his proposal. On October 24 he proposed to his girlfriend Kasey. An elaborate surprise proposal was made in New York City's Central Park. Hidden cameras were synced with special iPhone applications so the entire event could be watched from a safe distance. Kasey was lured to a specific location by a friend of Frank. It was a totally awesome proposal and, of course, Kasey said "yes".

Google founders considered hiring Jobs as their company's CEO



googlers

New episode from the "Bloomberg Game Changers" (which is a Bloomberg documentary series) revealed an interesting moment in the history of relationship between Google and Apple. When Sergey Brin and Larry Page were looking for Google's first CEO, they considered hiring their personal "hero" Steve Jobs. They even asked their investor John Doerr:

"Why can't he be our CEO?"

Eventually in 2001 Eric Shmidt was hired as the CEO by Brin and Page. Later Schmidt was also serving on Apple's board of directors until he resigned in 2009 because of the increased competition between Apple and Google, as the latter entered the mobile operating systems market by introducing Android.

The whole episode of the Bloomberg series about Brin and Page is available here.

Walt Mossberg has reviewed new MacBook Airs



Famous technology journalist Walt Mossberg published another review where he analyzes new MacBook Air notebooks and describes them as "gorgeous, very thin and light, but very sturdy aluminum computers".

After using notebooks for some time he made a conclusion that the 11.6-inch system is very iPad-like, the battery life of the devices is "strong" and the systems wake up from sleep every time almost instantly. Though such machines won't fit as primary computers, especially for power users, they should fit fine for light-duty users. Walt revealed that even the $999 model can run 7-8 programs at the same time, even if there are iTunes, Safari Web browser with couple of dozens of apps opened and Microsoft Office among them.

New 11.6- and 13.3 inch MacBook Airs Are Finally Unveiled



macbookair1

Few hours ago Steve Jobs presented two new MacBook Airs, which became the result of hooking up the iPad and a MacBook (according to his words). They have neither hard nor optical drive, as they keep all the data on the solid state drive. Here is how Steve Jobs explained such an innovation:

"MacBook Air is the first of a new generation of notebooks that leaves behind mechanical rotating storage in favor of solid state flash storage. We’ve taken what we have learned with the iPad—solid state storage, instant-on, amazing battery standby time, miniaturization and lightweight construction, to create the new MacBook Air. With its amazing responsiveness and mobility, it will change the way we think about notebooks."

The Complete Transcript of Steve Jobs' Apple Q4 Earnings Call



Here's the Apple CEO in his own words talking during Apple Q4 Earnings Call:

Hi, everybody. As most of you know, I don’t usually participate in Apple earnings calls, since you’re all in such capable hands with Peter and Tim. But I just couldn’t help dropping by for our first 20-billion-dollar quarter. I’d like to chat about a few things, and then stay for the rest of the Q&A, if that’s all right.

First, let me discuss iPhone. We sold 14.1 million iPhones in the quarter, which represents a 91 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, and was well ahead of IDC’s latest published estimate of 64 percent growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter. And it handily beats RIM’s 12.1 million BlackBerrys sold, in their most recent quarter ending in August.
