More iPhone6 Stuff to Try to Keep Your Mind Off All of The Bad News in The World

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!


So guess what’s happening at the factories building the next generation iPhone6?

Foxconn (Apple’s major supplier) has deployed 10,000 assembly line robots to meet the anticipated demand of producing Apple’s latest iPhone.  They are being added to, “…enhance and speed up the manufacturing process,” according to Tim Bajarin, CEO of market research firm, Creative Strategies.

This must be required when literally millions of smartphones are produced each month. “Robotics gives you that level of efficiency, which in the end, is very important for the bottom line,” according to Bajarin.  These 10,000 robots will work alongside the previously reported 1.2 million workers at Foxconn.

Obviously, as more robots are introduced, more human jobs will disappear.  This type of “job killing” technology isn't new but it certainly reminds all of us to use the creative side of our brains to stay ahead of the technological curve.


What do think? Will “Made in the USA” mean anything if similar robots are developed in more industries and wind up here in the United States taking over many former human jobs?  It may need to be changed to “Made in the USA by Robots!”

Revolutionary Wireless Speaker That Knows What Your Musical Tastes Are and Plays Songs You Like From Room to Room.

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



With all of the tragic news this week, and the weekend upon us, it’s time for an entertainment diversion!

A company called Aether has just released a wireless speaker that will supply you with unlimited access to a huge catalog of songs for a monthly fee.

What makes this speaker different from Pandora, Spotify or other streaming services?

This wireless speaker called “Cone” finds the songs that you prefer instead of you having to tell it what your tastes are.  It takes your streaming history and algorithmically decides what you want to hear.  The speaker’s current source of information is the service called Rdio which you will need to subscribe to in addition to buying the portable speaker for about $399.

Cone is battery operated which makes it portable and the included software can determine how far away you are from your wireless router and will play different music based on what room it is in.

Pretty cool, huh? However, have we become so lazy that we can’t even decide on our own music playlists?

What do think? Would you buy one of these?

Malaysian Airlines flight comes to crash landing in Ukraine

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!


The latest news this morning is of a Malaysian Airlines flight en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lampur coming to a crash landing in Ukraine, killing all 295 people on board.

As reports continue to come in, news sources are pondering the cause of the crash. The leading scenarios are a mechanical failure, a terrorist group’s shooting a missile at the aircraft (that was flying at 32,000 feet), or a terrorist group’s involvement on board the aircraft (radio signals were not sent as regularly as they should have once the flight crossed into Ukraine). Keep in mind that the border of Ukraine and Russia is a conflict zone.

All of the reports could benefit from video clips by experts in the field of aviation, terrorism, and national security. These experts could submit their clips to the MoGN App.

Apple and IBM? Are You Kidding Me?

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!

 









Times have changed!  Even the mention of Apple and IBM in the same sentence, seems inconceivable given their bitter rivalry in the 1980s and 1990s over the personal computer market.

The technological paradigm shift has brought about change and this particular union.   Apple and IBM announced that they will partner and work together on many different mobile applications designed for a wide range of industries.

As a member of the corporate world, I remember using my Blackberry for business and secretly carrying my brand new iPhone for everything else, so it now makes sense that the evolution of technology has brought these two formal rivals together. Apple can use IBM’s expertise because it doesn't understand the needs of corporate customers as well as it does consumers.  IBM can use Apple to widen the audience for its technological tools.

According to the sources close to the companies, the hatred has faded away as technology has evolved and the companies have moved in new directions.  IBM got out of the PC business when it sold that division to the Lenovo Group nearly a decade ago. Apple now makes far more money from its iPhones than it does from its Mac computers.  By joining forces, Apple and IBM are hoping to build mobile applications that prove iPhones and iPads can serve many business purposes.

We saw the potential of the iPhone and iPad as soon as they were invented.

iPhone6: More Rumors, More Phone

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



My last update on the iPhone 6 was back in May.  More rumors are surfacing about new features so it’s time for an update.  Of course Apple will not confirm any of this speculation; however, many of the rumors about the iPhone 5s and 5c turned out to be true.  This could be a sign that there is just a bit more transparency under the Tim Cook regime.

NEW RUMORS:

In addition to a larger screen and perhaps two models (4.7 inch and 5.5 inch) there are persistent rumors that the screen may be scratch-free, made of Sapphire glass and be higher resolution.  The advantage to the Sapphire glass is that it is twice as durable as the glass being used currently for the display and it is already being used on the 5s model’s Touch ID Home button and rear-facing camera cover.  There is also talk that the new iPhone 6 display will cover the whole surface of the iPhone. 

As I mentioned in May, the iPhone 6 will be thinner with new rumors saying that the functions of the earphone jack will be incorporated into the lightning connector because the earphone jack is the thickest component of the current iPhones.  The combination of the earphone jack and the battery add thickness to the device, so another rumor promises a new, thinner and more powerful battery.  Also charging the phone using wireless technology is also rumored.  There is also talk of improved image stabilization along with a higher resolution rear-facing camera or at least a lower aperture ability to improve pictures taken in low light locations.  The front facing camera may also be upgraded to 1080p resolution.

Also, the Apple logo on the back of the new iPhone may be lit up, similar to the logos on the MacBook.

Amazon Sued over App Charges

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



Millions of dollars were apparently billed by children’s accidental in-App purchases according to a complaint by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.  This is not good timing for Amazon with their brand new “purchase oriented” Smartphone hitting the market in a little over 10-days.

The complaint alleges that “random charges” are appearing on credit card bills of parents that claim their children have been tricked to pay for virtual in-game items without their parent’s knowledge or approval.  For example a game called “Tap Zoo” requires children to pay for animals and other game pieces in “stars” or “coins” some of which are paid for by in-game currency and some by real credit cards. The complaint goes on to say that Amazon did not have proper notifications in place to authorize these charges. The FTC reached a deal with Apple this past January to settle similar complaints.

With the Mobile Generated News® App there never any hidden charges.  The App is free in the Apple App Store.  At Mobile Generated News®, we want news consumers to be able to interact with local media for free.
