Changes ahead for the iPhone

Apple hinges on the iPhone. It is their most important product. And if you go their website, you will find they are currently selling five different models, not counting storage options: 7 and 7 Plus, 6S and 6s Plus, and the SE. Most rumors suggest that Apple will be releasing a 7S and a 7S Plus, alongside a new iPhone 8.

This makes no sense to me. The branding is becoming a mess.

I suggest that Apple gives up on the number scheme that we have become so accustomed to. The iPad leads the way out of this mess. The current iPad would be an iPad 7, if Apple had not introduced the Air and Air 2. Now it's just iPad. And for the iPad Pro, the bigger model did not even change the name when it was replaced this year.

I think going forward it will just be iPhone. Not iPhone 8 or iPhone 7S. And since the iPhone SE has started to go on sale I would expect Apple to drop the SE moniker as well. And while we are at it, why do we need the Plus name?

Once you just call it iPhone, Apple could make an iPhone Pro. Like the iPad and iPad Pro, there could be a cheaper iPhone and a significantly more expensive iPhone Pro. The iPhone could be available in two sizes, the iPhone Pro could start with one size. And Apple would have the opportunity to add more sizes throughout the year, freeing them from the strict September schedule.

How I’m dealing with my long-term project
Wed, Oct 18th 2017 3:12p   Volker Weber
#dontbreakthechain means you don’t skip your daily routine because you are lazy or the weather is bad or you don’t feel like it. However, if you have a medical emergency, that does not mean you are breaking the chain. You are watching your body with respect. The counts may go to zero, but your spirit does not. I won’t get my rewards for October, but I am already picking up the pieces.

Es begann mit meinem Freund und Hausarzt Dr. Rainer Müller, ging über den klaren und kurzentschlossenen Internisten Dr. Andreas Niedenthal, den phantastischen Chirurgen Dr. Norbert Runge bis zu meinem exzellenten Intensiv-PflegerAlexander Bruccoleri. Diesen Menschen verdanke ich mein Leben.

#dontbreakthechain einmal ganz anders
Sun, Oct 15th 2017 7:30p   Volker Weber
Am Freitag schickte mir Thomas einen Artikel, der eine unglaubliche Leistung beschreibt. Der 84-jährige Joses Hein aus Solingen hat 66 Jahre in Folge das deutsche Sportabzeichen erworben, zunächst in Bonze, dann in Silber, Jahrezehnte in Gold. Eine Ehrennadel für 65 gab es nicht, deshalb bekam er vom DSB einen Pokal. Den Artikel dazu gibt es online bei der RP.

Fünf Jahre lang saß Murat Kurnaz im Lager Guantánamo, heute ist er Sozialarbeiter in Bremen. Mit einem Appell wendet er sich an Migrantenkinder, wie er selbst eines war – und an junge Flüchtlinge. Durch die Hölle und zuück. Und (wieder) in Deutschland agekommen. Eine bewegende Geschichte.

How do you say iPhone X

Poll: how do you say iPhone X? (Retweet for more votes)— Volker Weber (@vowe) October 10, 2017 Last night I started this Twitter poll to find out how many people say 'iPhone 10' vs 'iPhone X'. Apple reps are trained to say 'iPhone 10' and they will even correct you when you say 'iPhone X'. It's a fun game. You can try it as often as you like and they always respond with 'iPhone X'. I did this recently in a briefing and then I confessed I was trolling them. We had a g

Surface Pro :: It's my preferred computer

Ten months in, the Surface Pro 4 is my preferred computer. I have quite a few of them and rotate them to keep them updated. But I am always going back to the Surface Pro as fast as possible. I would not be using Windows 10 without this hardware. I have yet to come across any other machine as pretty and as usable. It has it all: a beautiful screen, lightweight, touch, ink, great keyboard and trackpad. I had a good laugh when Nadella proclaimed he wanted people to love using Windows. Yeah,

This is Declan. Last week he completed the first 500 days of #dontbreakthechain. I have known Declan for many years but I would only have recognized him by his voice. Below are earlier photos of Declan showing his progress. My heart-felt congratulations, Sir. And keep it up.

Apple Watch :: LTE is a game changer
Mon, Oct 9th 2017 6:20a   Volker Weber
Ten days in I am pretty sure that LTE is a game changer for the Apple Watch. I have worn an Apple Watch for two and a half years and have been hooked on the activity tracking feature. That's why I never took it off. Notifications were always nice to have, since I did not have to fetch my iPhone for unimportant updates. But I still had it on me, no matter where I went. And this has changed. I often leave the iPhone behind when I leave the house. I still have my notifications, I get all my
