Given the high bar Apple has set (iPhone 5 technology), I (now) expect the iPhone 5C’s price to be on the high end of estimates, and possibly higher.
-Thinking about iPhone Pricing | stratēchery by Ben Thompson
Today, Apple is expected to announce new iPhone (and iPod) hardware and set hard dates for the release of iOS 7. In celebration of such a joyous occasion in the world of Apple, I thought I would share the most sobering item I could find on the subject. Ben Thompson thinks we should all slow our rolls, so to speak, and realize that low cost does not mean cheap in iPhone terms. I will be waiting with bated breath this afternoon to see the final outcome of all this jaw-wagging, but I am nonetheless excited.
Generally, Apple live streams these events through their website, but many other outlets are on-site and live blogging, so be sure to check them out. I’ll update this post (and Twitter) with my sources when the time comes.
UPDATE: Just to help out with the search for a viable liveblog, I have listed just a few sites that will be covering the news. There are tons more blogs on-site, so be sure to follow the one that will give you the right coverage for your interests. Enjoy!
Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
