apple (2)

The race is on to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, with all eyes fixed on tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet, the parent company of Google. Financial commentators and investors predict 2018 will herald the first firm with a stock market valuation of $1tn (£738bn) or more, if technology share prices continue to rise as strongly as in 2017. Apple is leading the way, with a market valuation of $869bn on Tuesday, a figure arrived at by multiplying the company’s share price by the number of shares in circ... Read More »

Apple admits it DOES slow down older iPhones – but says it’s to make them perform BETTER

apple (1)

If you’ve noticed your older iPhone getting slower than it used to be, you’re probably not imagining it. Following reports earlier in the week, Apple has admitted that it does slow down old iPhones, but claims it’s actually to improve performance. Research into the speed of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 over time showed that some iOS updates were actually throttling the processor, making it slower. Apple has confirmed the findings from Geekbench developer John Poole, but has claimed it’s trying to prolong the life of devices, rather than ... Read More »

apple (1)

Apple Watch users are familiar with how strong its health and fitness features are, helping you to monitor how much brisk exercise you do, how your heart health is doing and helping you to take a minute for mindfulness. Apple announced GymKit earlier in the year, to allow an Apple Watch to exchange data with gym equipment like treadmills, bikes, stair steppers and elliptical trainers. The idea was that though the Apple Watch was good at evaluating much of your active exercise, extra data that a treadmill, say, could glean would add to the Wa... Read More »

It has been revealed that users of its new MacOS High Sierra operating system can access it without using a password. Just use "root" as a username, leave the password field blank and hit "Enter" a few times. It's an embarrassing slip-up and not one users are used to from Apple, whose products are often cited as more reliable and secure than its rivals'.

The benefits of 3D smart glasses are evident: users automatically receive all the information they need such as storage locations or part numbers directly in their field of vision. Touch or voice control allows extremely easy operation. As a general principle, users have both their hands free while they are working. The camera in the glasses is also used as a barcode reader. Correct barcodes on parts removed from the storage location are shown in green while parts incorrectly removed are shown in red. Reinhard de Vries, Head of Plant Logisti... Read More »
