Apple has just launched its latest iPad 2 TV commercial called ‘We’ll Always’, which features a subtle little plug for its latest operating system.

Just like Apple’s previous iPad 2 ads, this one focuses on user experience rather than boasting about its technical specifications. Its message is that with the iPad, we’ll continue to do the things we’ve always done, but the way in which we do them will never be the same.

We’ll never stop sharing our memories, or getting lost in a good book. We’ll always cook dinner and cheer for our favorite team. We’ll still go to meetings, make home movies, and learn new things. But how we do all this will never be the same.

Did you notice the little plug for Lion in there?

China moves to close some of its knockoff Apple Stores

On 25 julio, 2011, in Apple Store Valencia, Programas iPad, Tienda Apple, by admin

Since the original breaking of the Chinese fake Apple Stores news last week, there has been a flurry of activity.  Chinese authorities began investigating the stores over the weekend.  Chinese customers demanded refunds even though they products were real.

Today, Bloomberg is reporting that two of the five stores investigated have been shut down.

Chinese authorities shut two stores in Kunming that used Apple Inc.’s logo without the company’s permission because they lacked the proper business licenses, a newspaper run by the southwestern city’s government reported.

Three separate unauthorized Apple stores, which were also investigated, had operating licenses, according to the Dushi Shibao newspaper report, which was posted on the Kunming city government’s website. Officials inspected more than 300 vendors of electronic products in the city, Dushi reported.

Apple currently has four stores in China.  While that number will increase greatly over the next year, it isn’t surprising to see local businesses trying to fill the void in the interim.

WSJ, Kobo falling in line in Apple’s App Store, Google Books is out

On 25 julio, 2011, in Apple Store Valencia, Programas iPad, Tienda Apple, by admin


The now missing Google Books on iOS

The WSJ is reporting that Apple is laying down the law on apps that try to link externally to other payment systems in the App Store.  The WSJ’s own app and Kobo, another eBookseller were both forced to remove external links to payment stems from within their apps.

In a pair of moves that suggest Apple Inc. is enforcing rules for selling content on its devices, Kobo Inc., the Canadian e-book retailer, and The Wall Street Journal said Sunday they will no longer sell content directly to customers through their apps for Apple devices.

We reported last week and over the weekend that Google Books was pulled from the App Store without a trace. Google and Apple (shocker) will not give us comment on the matter.  Now the Journal chimes in:

Google Inc., which competes with Apple to sell e-books and other content, also appeared to have been affected. Google Books, a mobile app that lets people buy e-books, among other things, wasn’t available in the iTunes app store as of Sunday night. A Google spokesman declined to comment.

New iPad Commercial – ‘We’ll Always…’

On 25 julio, 2011, in Apple Store Valencia, Programas iPad, Tienda Apple, by admin

Apple released another excellent iPad ad this evening demonstrating how the iPad is changing the way we do things forever.  It is, like the last few wonderful ads: We Believe, If You Asked  and Now narrated by Peter Coyote and built by Media Arts Lab in Los Angeles.

We’ll never stop sharing our memories…or getting lost in a good book. We’ll always cook dinner and cheer for our favorite team. We’ll still go to meetings, make home movies, and learn new things. But how we do all this will never be the same.

You’ll notice a well-timed little lesson in ‘Lion’ toward the end as part of the Alphabet Fun App.

Other not built-in apps were: The Photo CookbookMLBFuze HD and Apple’s iMovie.

Apple’s Adoption of Bluetooth Low Energy Paves Way for New Possibilities

On 25 julio, 2011, in Apple Store Valencia, Programas iPad, Tienda Apple, by admin

As we noted last week, Apple has adopted new Bluetooth 4.0 chips in their latest MacBook Airs and Mac Minis. Bluetooth 4.0 notably includes the Bluetooth Low Energy specification which promises a low-power and low-latency implementation that opens the door to a number of new kinds of Bluetooth-powered devices.



The best example of what will be possible comes from Apple’s popular Nike+ accessory which isn’t actually a Bluetooth Low Energy device. The Nike+ accessory is a sensor that sends signals from your shoe to your iOS device to track your daily runs. The information is sent from the sensor wirelessly to your iOS device where it’s stored for later syncing. Nike’s implementation is a proprietary one, though it is similar to Bluetooth.



Bluetooth Low Energy standardizes this sort of functionality for a broad market of devices. Like Nike’s shoe sensor, the new protocol promises the ability to power accessories for more than a year on a simple button cell battery without recharging.



Since the technology is so new, there haven’t been many product announcements for accessories with the technology. Casio was one of the few who has revealed a Bluetooth low-energy watch that will interface with your mobile phone.



The device can receive notifications for incoming calls, SMS and email, and can also be used to locate your phone if its within range (~5 meters). Even with the incorporation of the Bluetooth technology, the watch will run for two years on its cell battery.



Other possible uses commonly listed for Bluetooth Low Energy include:



• Find Me – electronic leash applications


• Proximity – wireless locking and unlocking, out of range alerts


• Sports / Running – stats and vitals


• Health – heart rate monitor, blood pressure, glucose monitors



EETimes suggests one interesting indoor use for these sensors given their low cost and low maintenance requirements.

One key application could be indoor location (where there is no GPS signal) whereby sensors around a large public building (such as an airport or rail station) constantly broadcast information about their location. A Bluetooth low energy equipped cell phone passing within range could then display that information to its owner. Sensors could transmit other information such as flight times and gates, location of amenities, or special offers from nearby shops.

Apple joined the Bluetooth board of directors just last month and it’s likely that Bluetooth 4.0 will soon extend into their other devices beyond the MacBook Air and Mac mini. The Bluetooth site claims that virtually all new smart phones will include Bluetooth 4.0 by the end of 2012.
