朋友還在用滑蓋式的鍵盤手機,想當年一支要價不斐,位居9999頂級手機之列,然而今天在眾人面前拿出來用,還會覺得蠻丟臉的。是的,主流手機的面貌已經改變:上一代手機拼的是硬體功能,要愈多愈好;這一代手機比的是軟體功能以及操作介面,螢幕大不用說,更重要的要有多點觸控介面,而且要能下載多樣的應用軟體...

麥金塔熱銷 蘋果上季營收增61%

更新日期:2010/07/21 08:32

(路透舊金山20日電)蘋果公司(Apple Inc)發布好得出奇的營收預測,超越華爾街預測,緩和iPhone 4收訊爭議可能打擊銷量的憂慮,蘋果股價因此上揚2%。

 

麥金塔電腦(Mactintosh)6月季銷售意外飆高,平息批評蘋果處理iPhone4天線瑕疵手法的聲浪。

 

Oppenheimer & Co.分析師芮納(Yair Reiner)指出:「在投資人日益擔心iPhone4天線問題可能影響銷量時,這是近來蘋果預測超越華爾街的少數幾次之一。蘋果強烈傳達出他們對事情有不同看法。」

 

雖然iPhone 4與1月亮相的iPad為蘋果製造最多新聞話題,但創造本季營收的最大功臣卻是麥金塔電腦。

 

蘋果今天指出,6月26日為止的會計年度第3季賣出347萬台麥金塔電腦,較去年同期成長33%,也高於華爾街預測的320萬台。

 

總部位於加州古柏迪諾(Cupertino)的蘋果公司,在那斯達克綜合指數(Nasdaq)收盤漲2.6%,收在251.89美元,延長交易中再漲到259美元。

 

蘋果公布會計年度第3季淨利是32.5億美元,每股3.51美元,高於去年同期的18.3億美元、每股2.01美元。

 

營收則大增61%來到157億美元,遠超過華爾街預測的147億5000萬美元。中央社(翻譯)

蘋果營收 將超越微軟
  • 2010-07-21
  • 工商時報
  • 【記者陳穎芃/綜合外電報導】

     財富雜誌(Fortune)報導,蘋果上1季營收極有可能超越微軟,即便此言未成真,蘋果最快也會在這1季超越微軟,從此打破微軟營收在業界稱霸30年的歷史,但蘋果獲利要超越微軟可能還需一段時日。

     蘋果近年來股價飛漲,促使公司在今年5月成功打敗微軟,成為美國市值最高的公司,而分析師更預期蘋果不久後將超越微軟營收,估記兩家公司在本周發表季度財報後很可能就會改寫歷史。

     同時,蘋果宣布平板電腦iPad將於周五起在9個新國際市場發售,使得這項熱銷產品遍及19國。這9個新市場包括奧地利、比利時、香港、愛爾蘭、盧森堡、墨西哥、荷蘭、紐西蘭和新加坡。

     蘋果將在周二收盤後發表該公司今年度第3季(4到6月)財報。跟據彭博社報導,分析師預期蘋果第3季營收達到147億美元,相較於去年同期的83.4億美元近乎倍增。

     雖然各界人士對蘋果營收所發表的預估值各有出入,但財金網站Financial Alchemist分析師穆勒(Turley Muller)向來被公認是較為準確的蘋果觀察家。穆勒認為蘋果第3季營收約152億美元,而周四即將發表財報的微軟則預計創下153億美元季度營收,可見雙方營收差距只剩一線之隔。

     況且,蘋果歷年來各季表現都大幅超越業界預期,因此若將這點考量在內,蘋果在第3季超越微軟營收的機率極高。光就蘋果本年度第2季(1到3月)財報來看,其營收就比業界預期高出10億美元,且每股獲利也比業界預期的2.45美元高出0.88美元。

     平均來講,蘋果在過去1年來各季財報數字都比預期高出35%左右,反觀微軟實際財報與業界預期之間的差距就沒有蘋果這麼顯著,因此假設蘋果第3季營收落在預估值高點,而微軟營收恰好落在預估值低點,則財富雜誌的預言便將成真。

iphone 4 antenna decal: it’s not a bug, it’s a feature

Aside from FaceTime, the Retina Display and the revolutionary paradigm-shifting flawlessly perfect antenna, a select few iPhone owners also get access to one more new feature: a dedicated, touch-sensitive End Call button. Apple just forgot to label it, but that’s easy to remedy:

iphone 4 antenna decal

Like the antenn-aid, this decal started out as a prank, but now that people are clamoring for a real one, creator Aaron Draczynski is working on making it real. So that’s two new products created thanks to Apple’s new feature. More people given an additional means of earning a living. That’s just Magical. Revolutionary. Thanks Apple.

How Steve Jobs Became Jesus Christ Technology

How Steve Jobs Became Jesus Christ Technology

Apple devotion as religious fanaticism is rhetorical old hat. Perhaps it is more than tired flamebait, though. The Atlantic points to a paper by Texas A&M's Heidi Campbell that lays out the four narrative myths that make Apple "divine":

1. a creation myth highlighting the counter-cultural origin and emergence of the Apple Mac as a transformative moment;
2. a hero myth presenting the Mac and its founder Jobs as saving its users from the corporate domination of the PC world;
3. a satanic myth that presents Bill Gates as the enemy of Mac loyalists;
4. and, finally, a resurrection myth of Jobs returning to save the failing company...

(That's myth in the Joseph Campbell sense, people, not its more modern iteration.) The Atlantic uses it as a pivot point to argue how unaffected Apple is by Antennagate when it's all said and done. In fact, it might've boosted the hero and resurrection myths, with Steve Jobs delivering free bumpers to fix the problem, shortly before Apple posted their best quarter ever.

It's not a bad thing, to be divine: Ideology is more powerful than mere brand loyalty. I wonder what the sacred text would be, though. [new media & society via The Atlantic]

喬布斯:從嬉皮到獨裁者
來自:中國經濟時報



現在看來,“天線門”只讓蘋果公司首席執行官喬布斯打了個趔趄。

喬布斯在該問題上的傲慢,使得蘋果市值一度蒸發了182億美元。蘋果不得不因此召開發布會,而喬布斯則把這場“道歉會”當成了“批判會”,對幾家競爭對手挨個數落。這又引得業界一片嘩然。

正當媒體和競爭對手準備好了要踢他的屁股,蘋果的二季度財報立刻止住頹勢。財報顯示,蘋果淨利達到 32.5億美元,而行業老大諾基亞的淨利只有2.91億美元。蘋果股價隨即大幅攀升,基本回到了“天線門”之前的水平。

喬布斯數落對手也許只是場“秀”。他那時應該知道蘋果的財報遠遠超出機構預期,趁著自我批評的機會也把對手拉下水。國外媒體透露喬布斯完全有能力把股價拉高5%,因為他可以輕而易舉地提高每股收益。

經歷了“天線門”的iPhone 4依然步步為營,正如蘋果首席運營官庫克說的那樣,造多少,就賣多少。競爭對手的產品則因為喬布斯的“揭短”,而面臨壓力。

蘋果是喬布斯的玩具,而如今,整個產業鏈都成了他的玩具。FSK信號等上游廠商為了“討好”喬布斯,不惜以微利的報價來贏得訂單,美國第二大電信運營商AT&T公司成了喬布斯的“打工仔”,斥巨資升級網絡竟是為了符合iPhone 4和ipad的數據業務,對於手機廠商更不必說,蘋果的任何一樣產品都成為被追逐的目標。

喬布斯的是把雙刃劍。正是他超前的思維造就了蘋果帝國,但也因此給自己埋下了“定時”。他可以在黑板上天馬行空地畫出自己的想法,讓員工添加到產品中,而不去驗證其可實施性,所以,“天線門”的出現並非偶然。他也可以根據自己的喜好,確定 iPhone 4的上市國家,有媒體稱,韓國和中國之所以沒有被列入上市名單,正是拜喬布斯所賜。

年輕的喬布斯曾是個“嬉皮”,專注於技術,而疏於管理,因此被迫中途輟學。歸來後的喬布斯則搖身一變,成了“獨裁者”,身兼董事長,總裁,設計師等要職,獨攬大權。喬布斯則把蘋果的城牆越築越高,不論是硬體還是軟體,蘋果的產品總是和外界不兼容,喬布斯玩起了“獨角戲”。

“保持飢餓,保持愚蠢(求知若渴,處事若愚)”被喬布斯奉為信條,但如今看來則成了笑柄。不知道在喬布斯心中,是否懷念那個“嬉皮時代”?

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

There are tons of great reasons to root your Android phone, but once you do, you'll likely be overwhelmed with all the custom ROM options out there. Here's how to go about finding—and installing—the one that fits your needs.

What's a ROM?

One of the best things about the openness of the Android platform is that if you're unhappy with the stock OS, you can install one of many modified versions of Android (called ROMs) on your device. The downside is that there are so many developers and different Android devices out there that the custom ROM scene can be very difficult to navigate. We're here to help the whole process seem a bit more manageable.

We briefly discussed using an app called ROM Manager in our Droid rooting tutorial, but today we're going to dig a bit deeper into the kind of ROMs that are available, how to pick the right one for you, and how to install new ROMs on your rooted Android device.

This guide assumes you've already rooted your device. Thus, if you haven't, be sure to do that first—most newer devices, like the Evo and the Droid Incredible (among others) have easy, one-click rooting solutions available. If you're not so lucky, you may have to figure out how to do it the long way.

The Three Most Popular Types of ROMs

If you're familiar with Linux, choosing the right ROM is similar to finding the right Linux distribution. Each version of the OS has a specific goal in mind, and as such differs quite a bit from the others. Which one you choose is dependent on your priorities and how you use the device.

The most popular types of ROM's come in three different flavors: ROMs that port future versions of Android to you're device (when they aren't yet officially available), ROMs that add new features beyond the stock OS, and ROMs that focus on speed and stability. These aren't the only three categories of custom ROMs, nor are they hard and fast rules, but they offer good guidelines as to what's out there. Generally, you can pick a ROM fairly easily if you know which of these three categories contains the features most important to you.

1) Future Versions of Android

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

Unless you're on the Nexus One, it usually takes a while for your phone's manufacturer to prepare the latest and greatest version of Android for your device. At the time of this writing, for example, Android 2.2 "Froyo" (the most up-to-date, stable Android OS) is available and has been open sourced, but most manufacturers haven't released updates for their devices yet. Luckily, since the Froyo source code became available, pretty much all ROMs out there are Froyo-based now (you'll know because they'll say they're based on the latest version of the Android Open Source Project, or AOSP). But before the source code of a big update is released, it's up to kindly developers to create ROMs based on the early releases in this category alone. Once the source is available, nearly every category of ROM will use the future version. Photo by nh824.

For the purpose of explanation, however, let's take a trip back to the time before the Froyo source code was available. When Froyo first came to the Nexus One, many developers took that version or other Froyo leaks and and created ROMs for other phones, for those that wanted the newest version as soon as possible. They were the only ROMs based on Froyo at the time—the ROMs in the categories below may have contained a few Froyo features, but most developers don't base their ROMs on Froyo until the source code is available. Thus, if you want the newest stock version of Android as soon as it comes out, these are the ROMs to go with. They're usually the least stable ROMs of the bunch, however, so once the code's been open sourced, you're better off going with something from the "speed and stability" category (since it'll still be based on the newest version). Once the next release of Android comes out (codenamed "Gingerbread"), this category of ROM will be most people's first shot at the new release.

2) ROMs That Add New Features

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

Many ROMs seek to add more features to your phone that aren't available in the stock OS. Usually these are things like extra settings (seen in the screenshot above), or little conveniences like making the "sound off" lock screen slide put your phone on vibrate instead, or letting you skip music tracks with the volume buttons. Sometimes these ROMs will also contain things outright missing from the stock version, like FLAC support. While feature-adding ROMs are still built for speed and stability, they may not be quite as fast or as stable as those in the third category (though they're often still be better than the stock ROM). In most cases, the most popular ROM in this category is CyanogenMod, although devices without CyanogenMod ports have similar ROMs that achieve the same goals (such as the Fresh ROM, available for the Evo).

Note that when I say ROMs add extra features, I do not mean features like tethering, overclocking, and other larger, more publicized features. Most of these features make it to Android devices through separate apps instead of being built-in. Many ROMs (both in this category and in others) may pre-install them, but you can, naturally, add a lot of feature-adding applications to a rooted phone (through the Android Market) without installing a custom ROM.

3) ROMs That Focus Only on Speed and Stability

Some ROMs, such as OpenDesire on the Desire, Baked Snack on the Evo, or Bugless Beast on the Droid, are less focused on tweaking the OS for features and more focused on bringing as much speed, stability, and battery life to your phone as possible. Thus, if you have rooted mainly for this reason (or because you wanted to add larger, app-based features such as wireless tethering), then this type of ROM is the one for you. They may sometimes lag a bit behind in terms of adding the newest features, but they're usually the fastest and most stable around. Often they also remove the bloat many manufacturers put on their phones, such as extra apps or user interfaces (such as HTC's Sense and Motorola's MotoBlur).

Note that all ROMs will probably say that they focus on speed and stability, but this particular group focuses only on these things, and will usually say that they contain no extra tweaks as a result, so look for that as opposed to the words "built for speed and stability" when you search in the next step.

How to Find and Install Custom ROMs

We briefly discussed how to install a custom ROM in our Droid rooting tutorial, but below I'm going to delve a bit deeper into the ins and outs of the process of picking, backing up, and flashing your ROM. Reminder: Your phone should already be rooted before you proceed.

Your Recovery Image

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

Your phone's recovery image is is the system from which you can flash new ROMs and themes, make and restore backups (called "nandroid" backups), wipe caches, and perform other tasks. It's essentially an Android rooter's best friend. To access it, you usually need to boot up your phone while holding down one or two external buttons (such as the volume button, or a button on the phone's physical keyboard, if applicable). You'll have to look up the button combination for your specific phone on Google, by searching something like htc evo recovery mode (replacing htc evo with your specific phone, of course).

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

There are a few different custom recovery images out there that make hacking easier than the stock recovery image does. We're going to use one called ClockworkMod, since it comes with ROM Manager and is easy to use. To start, install ROM Manager from the Market (the free version is usually suitable, although you may find later that you want to upgrade to the pay version, which has more ROMs, themes, and overclocking kernels). Start the app, hit the "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" button at the top of the main menu, and confirm your phone's model. You'll see a progress bar at the top of the screen while it flashes. When it's finished, you're ready to download and install a new ROM.

Finding the Right ROM

The problem with the ROM scene is that most ROMs don't have any kind of official web site; they're usually just posted on forums (which makes them a bit more difficult to search for). There aren't many comprehensive ROM databases on the net, but I did find this list at TheUnlockr, which is pretty good. Just click on your phone's model and you'll be presented with a fairly well-maintained list of the popular ROMs available for your phone (some phones, like the Droid, don't have a very populated list yet, but most do).

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

If you like, you can open up ROM Manager at this point and hit "Download ROM" to see which ROMs are available through the app. These are usually the most popular, and are good guidelines as to which ones you should read up on. Click on a few of the links at TheUnlockr's database and see if you can figure out which category it belongs to. Unfortunately most ROMs aren't going to come out and clearly identify as fitting into one of the categories we laid out above, but often they will say at the beginning whether they have added extra features to the ROM or whether they were built only for stability. You can also take a look at the changelog to see if extra features have been added or whether it's a bunch of under-the-hood tweaks and extra apps like Wireless Tether.

Once you've found one or more ROMs that sound good, it's mostly trial and error from here. You might have to test drive more than one to get a feel for which ones you like best, but that's the fun part of it all. Note also, that even if a ROM isn't listed in ROM Manager but it sounds really good, you can still download it to your phone's SD card and install it using ROM Manager's "install from SD card" option, so don't let ROM Manager's list limit you if you don't like anything it has, even though it is a good guideline of what's popular.

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

Note: In some cases, CyanogenMod is the only popular ROM available for your device. In these cases, even if you're looking only for speed and stability, I recommend you try it out—while Cyanogen definitely falls into the "features" category of ROMs, it is by far one of the most popular and widely worked-on cross-device ROMs out there, and there's a reason for it. Also, the newest version is incredibly fast and stable from my experience, far more than older versions—so even if that's your goal, you may find yourself happy with it.

Install Your New ROM

Installing a new ROM (more commonly known as "flashing") is very easy with ROM Manager. Just go back to the "Download ROM" section (or, if you're installing a ROM from your SD card, go to "Install ROM from SD card" and pick your ROM). It will download, if applicable, and then give you this prompt:

How to Choose the Right Android ROM For You

Always, always, always back up your existing ROM before flashing something new. Then, if something goes wrong, you can always restore to your latest backup, either through ROM Manager (by going to "Manage and Restore backups" on the main menu) or by booting into recovery mode and choosing "nandroid".

Generally, you'll want to "Wipe Data and Cache" if you're moving from a ROM based on one Android version to the next (i.e. a 2.1-based ROM to a 2.2-based ROM). You'll also want to check the main download page of the ROM you're installing (which you can find through TheUnlockr) to see if they recommend wiping for that particular version. "Wipe Data and Cache" basically means that all your settings will be returned to stock—If you weren't running a Froyo build beforehand, you'll have to re-download all your apps, as well as rearrange your home screens and reconfigure all your custom settings every time you wipe. In the end, you can always try not wiping and see what happens—if you flash a ROM and have problems, it's pretty easy to restore from your backup and try again.

Enjoy Your New ROM

At this point, your phone will reboot into recovery mode, flash the ROM, and you can explore all the new features available to you (or just bask in the glory of speed and stability). You can do a bit more with ROM Manager, like install extra themes and kernels, which we discussed in our Droid rooting tutorial. Remember that a good part of picking the right ROM is trial and error, so don't be afraid to flash something else, even if you like the first one you picked—you might be surprised how much more you like others. Besides, even if you don't, you can always restore from your backup and be none the more inconvenienced.

Pioneer's VSX-1020-K Is Best $550 AV Receiver and Not Only Because You Control It Via iPhone

This week Pioneer introduced five new receivers, from $230 to $750. All have HDMI 1.4 switching for 3D, and all have Pro Logic IIz surround. But one model stands out, the $550 VSX-1020-K, a worthy successor to our Battlemodo champ.

Receiver technology has become amazingly affordable, and to me, the sweet spot is the 1020, with crazy tech that would've cost thousands only a few years ago:
• An Anchor Bay 1080p upscaler for analog-to-digital video, making every gadget you line in available on your TV via a single HDMI cable
• Sound Retriever AIR for improving quality of MP3s and other compressed formats, a step-up from something that we found actually worked well on previous models
• Advanced microphone-enabled automatic room calibration (called MCACC) for balancing speakers
• Precision Quartz Locking System (PQLS), which provides jitter-free CD playback when combined with a compatible Pioneer Blu-ray player

But best of all, this thing can be controlled and adjusted by Pioneer's AVR iControl app. Anyone who's slagged through their fair share of shitty AV receiver menus—whether on screen or on the receiver itself—knows what a boon it is to have a nice GUI in the palm of your hand as you walk around the room, tweaking your settings. Trust me, this isn't just a gimmick. Here are some screens:

 

 

Not much more to say, except that if you respected our judgment call on the 1019 in our receiver Battlemodo, you have all the more reason to spend an extra $50 on its replacement when it ships in May. In the meantime, here's the basic lowdown on all the new receivers: the junior-grade VSX-520-K and VSX-820-K, and the upper deck VSX-920-K, VSX-1020-K and flagship VSX-1120-K, which for $200 more replaces the Anchor Bay upscaler with a Marvell, and has a few extra AV-nerd perks.

諾基亞Nokia新招---Qt可移植iPhone及Android的應用
來自:驅動之家 



      
Qt是一款跨平台的應用和用戶界面框架,開發人員可以使用這個平台方便的將自己的應用程移植到目前市面上的主要作業系統中,在行動平台方面,Qt在Android及Symbian之外還將兼容iOS。

      
在去年一月份,諾基亞耗資 1.53億美元收購奇趣科技的Qt創建者公司,並在今年開始將其逐步推向開源化,使其成為未來一個重要的發展戰略。之前基於 Qt開發平台製作的著名軟體有Skype公司,谷歌地球等。

      
諾基亞發展跨平台戰略本身是個很不錯的選擇,僅 Symbian的一代系統就擁有不同的用戶界面系統區分,包括S40的1.0,S40的2.0和S60的一版,二版,三版,五版等不同版本,就連同一版本的不同機型也會有屏幕分辨率,配置等不同參數,這對於應用開發人員來說就是個噩夢,製作一款軟體需要多次重複修改來適應不同機型。

      
Qt的平台將會兼容Symbian的S60,S40,Symbian的^ 3,Maemo OS以及Meego等多個平台,這些都是諾基亞旗下的設備。但是在諾基亞維基論壇中,他們新加入了對 iPhone和Android平台兼容的介紹。

      
諾基亞此舉看起來有些不可思議,但是大家需要注意的是,蘋果在線商店的總應用程數量已經超過 20萬個,Android電子市場的總應用數量也已接近10萬。大家都知道,應用商店對於智能手機系統來說是最重要的環節之一,Qt的跨平台開發將會讓已有的iPhone和Android應用快速大量的移植至諾基亞 Ovi的商店,提供給諾基亞用戶使用,而開發人員對於這種花費小工作量多增加收入來源的做法也將會非常歡迎,這不得不算是諾基亞的一招妙棋。
