Apple Able to Keep Up with Demand for iPhone 5

Despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy is the world’s best selling smartphone, demand for the iPhone 4SXL, I mean iPhone 5, is still through the roof. Demand was so high, as a matter of fact, that Apple’s production plants, specifically Foxconn, were unable to keep up with the demand,...

Apple Planning on Making a TV?

Apple TVWith the recent success of Google’s expenditure into the realm of televisions, it appears that Apple may be looking to do the same thing. Yes, you heard that right, Apple may soon be trying to sell you a tv along with the next generation iPad, Mac, iPhone and iPod.

The people over at DailyTech were recently seen quoting an unnamed “former Apple executive” who stated that Apple was planning on entering the television market by the end of this year. According to the source, Apple is planning to “blow Netflix and all those other guys away” with a console that would feature Apple TV and iTunes built directly into it.

The report also stated that Apple plans on teaming up with an existing manufacturer in order to provide televisions branded under the Apple name. “You’ll go into an Apple retail store and be able to walk out with a TV,” said the former executive. “It’s perfect.”

Some people, like Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White, are pretty positive on Apple entering the $100 billion LCD TV market. According to White, “In our view, the combination of Apple’s powerful ecosystem, industrial design savvy, powerful brand and ability to reinvent product categories could make Apple a powerful force in the TV world in the coming years.”

Apple currently makes an Apple TV device that, due to recent successes of the iPhone and iPad, has done very poorly with regard to standards set forth by Apple. This system was first introduced in 2007 and is a box-like device that allows users to stream web content, like Netflix, to their televisions. However, even Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, was eventually forced to admit that the technology never really caught on.

Apple drastically cut the price of the Apple TV device last September from $299 to $99  but even that wasn’t able to make the service a household name. If Apple does manage to make a move into the TV market, it would put the company even closer to its biggest rival, Google.

Google TV is a very similar product to the current Apple TV but Google is widely expected to expand its service by integrating it with actual televisions. Apple, as always, did not immediately respond to requests for comments on this so I guess we will just have to wait until the end of the year to find out what is really going on.

Battle Between Apple and Flash Over According to Adobe CEO

Apple vs AdobeThe battle between Apple and Adobe is nothing new to anybody in the tech world. The lack of Adobe Flash Player on any and all Apple products is evidence of the two companies’ troubled past. The inability of the iPad to run Flash when it originally launched was a huge argument against the device. Flash content has been huge on the internet for years now and Apple’s refusal to support it has led to a lot of negativity against iOS.

Apparently that isn’t the case, however. It appears that things have been shifting over to HTML 5 in a big way and iOS supports HTML 5. So now that Flash isn’t that necessary on iOS, how are terms between Apple and Adobe? Well, Adobe’s CEO has a little something to say in that regard.

The top executive of Adobe, Shantanu Narayen, recently stated that the feud between Apple and Adobe is over. According to Narayen, “It’s an argument that the press likes to continue bringing up.It’s control over the app store that’s at issue here. We allow people to author once and get as wide a distribution as possible. If you build in Flash, you can run the apps on other platforms. If you can build an app using our tools, and if you run it in through AIR, it can be in the App Store.”

Narayen makes a good point. AIR has proven to be a great workaround for app creators who still like using Flash, and there’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned workaround to settle a feud. I’m still not convinced that everything is all hunky dory between Apple and Adobe but at least they are speaking to each other, which is always a great first step.
