iCloud Theology

leave a comment »

For days, I searched for a blog post or a book about ideology behind Apple products. Something that could explain the basic reason why somebody become apple geek. Finally, I found an interesting blog post on macworld about iCloud Theology.

In a sense, these three companies’ cloud services do represent three different concepts of God. Google is an Old Testament, theist-style cloud all the way: He through whom all blessings and punishments come, who must be praised and supplicated; without the Cloud, you are nothing and have nothing. iCloud represents more of a Deist ideal. The Cloud exists, but its presence is more to be felt than seen; if it does its job right, iCloud will instill great doubt that it even exists, or that it takes any notice of us at all.

Amazon is a form of agnosticism. You don’t know if you really believe in it or not, but you do know that on the third weekend of every month this pointy building near the center of town throws a really great bake sale.

The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced I’m on to something with these ideas about God and iCloud. Some atheists derisively describe God as “Your magic friend who lives in the clouds,” after all. I’m perfectly fine with that concept, if this new magical friend makes sure I’ll never again find myself 3000 miles from home with a hard drive that’s making crunchy noises instead of retrieving the Keynote files I’ll need for the four hours of talks I traveled there to deliver.

I mean, at the time I prayed to my previous, analog God for deliverance… and a fat lot of good that did me.

iMessage to Kill SMS and BBM

leave a comment »

There is a hype on Apple’s conference. Few days ago, I thought that only iCloud that will be the next killer application from Apple. But, after the WWDC keynote is over, Techcrunch wrote that there are long list of excitement that had been announced.

As one of the core new features highlighted today in iOS 5, iMessages has one purpose: to kill SMS. That is, traditional carrier-controlled text messages. iMessages will do this by replacing SMS with a service that Apple is in control of across all of their iOS devices. And here’s the real death blow: iMessages will be completely free.

iMessages maybe succeed to kill SMS. The most important weapon is that, imessages will be completely free. I Think, iMessage will go further. It will not only kill SMS but also kill the BBM (Blackberry Messenger)

iCloud, The Next Apple’s Empire

with one comment

Apple will reveal iCloud on 6 June.

Finally. Apple sent out a press release announcing it will unveil it’s new cloud service called iCloud at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6. Cult of Mac news editor John Brownlee chatted with readers about the upcoming announcement, speculations, if cloud computing is all it’s cracked up to be, and anything else Mac addicts dared throw his way.

I think, iCloud will be the next Apple’s empire. Few years ago, before Apple revealed iTunes, music industries is on danger because of piracy and selling decline. Apple’s application then revolutionized music industries and make it more dynamics. Few Months ago, before Apple revealed its first ipad, everybody doubt about the Apple’s odd gadget. Nobody predicted that ipad will be the next trend on computer world.

android apps proliferation

leave a comment »

start form nothing in 2004, android become promising mobile operating system in 2010. some analysis said that will overthrow its older brothers, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Apple next year. CNN said, this is android sensation. another phenomenon, the application proliferate on a very high rate growth. this is actually the open source nature, when the freedom to develop give the strength to beat the giant.

readwriteweb said:

According to recent statistics from AndroidLib.com, the Android Marketplace saw 9,331 new mobile applications added to its app store during the month of March, 2010. This number is even more phenomenal when you look at the Android Marketplace’s historical growth. In December of last year, for example, there were 3,807 new applications added to the Android app store. By January, 4,458 more were added. In February, 5,532 arrived. And now, 9,331. If this trend continues, we could possibly see a month this year where the number of new applications tops 5 digits. And with numbers like this, Android could soon give Apple a run for its money.

the growth is phenomenal. CNET said that the growth show the big potential of android as mobile operating system. but such a high rate proliferation of android apps not always bring good implication as CNN said:

For users, it means apps in the store could be buggy, might not work well depending on their handsets, and could deliver a frustrating experience.

so, be careful android. despite the growth is phenomenon, frustrating experience is also the next possibility.

do we need ipad?

leave a comment »

i just wonder, why people never underestimate apple’s works? a months ago, ipad launched. actually, such gadget was an odd gadget. we have to make a lot of personal adjustment to stick on the gadget. why? because ipad is flat and doesn’t have any keyboard. it just like an iphone with a big touchscreen that intended to replace a netbook or other personal computing gadget. Grossman said it is somewhere between iphone and netbook.

the question is, do we need ipad ? it is now consumption age and the answer to the question is, yes. now we need such gadget that simplify the consumption. we only touch the screen and the world com to you in a flat gadget. actually, ipad doesn’t facilitate creation. so, are you ready for the next stage of consumption ? just take ipad to simplify it.
