2013: The Year In Apple and Technology at Large

2013: The Year In Apple and Technology at Large

Couldn’t agree more with John Gruber, 2013 was not exactly a great year in tech but we saw some great leaps when compared to tech from just 3 years ago. The 64bit Soc in the iPhone 5 blew away minds at Qualcomm and made Samsung come out immediately saying its next phone will have one. There was a point this year when all of my web browsing was done totally on my phone, i did not open a single tab on chrome for about 2 months on my laptop just my phone, i couldn’t do this in 2009 but its possible now in 2013. Lets not forget the futuristic things revealed by Elon Musk the Hyperloop, Google’s Project Loon and Amazon’s Drone.

What is a tech blog?

But tech blogging has become a crowded space. There are only so many ways tech writers can re-write the same press release or product announcement. To stand out, you need to have a unique take on the news. A personality. A smart take. You have to be funny or condescending or snarky or provide an exclusive bit of news your competitors don’t have.

What iOS 7 Would Look Like in Your Home
Alexandra Chang, dwell.com
Apple’s lat­est mobile oper­at­ing sys­tem iOS 7 is set to launch in Sep­tem­ber. The redesign is rad­i­cal­ly dif­fer­ent than what we’re used to see­ing on our iPhones and iPads today. Instead of icons and apps with depth and faux-material…

Lovely design concept, i loved that of the refrigerator more.

What is it like to work with Elon Musk?

parislemon:

Dolly Singh (the former Head of Talent Acquisition at SpaceX) on Elon Musk rallying the troops after a problematic launch:

I think most of us would have followed him into the gates of hell carrying suntan oil after that.  It was the most impressive display of leadership that I have ever witnessed.  Within moments the energy of the building went from despair and defeat to a massive buzz of determination as people began to focus on moving forward instead of looking back. This shift happened collectively, across all 300+ people in a matter of not more than 5 seconds. I wish I had video footage as I would love to analyze the shifts in body language that occurred over those 5 seconds. It was an unbelievably powerful experience. 

Musk gets a lot of credit for being a visionary (and rightfully so, of course), but his leadership in getting incredible people to do incredible things may end up being just as important a trait.
