Evolution of Apple’s Technology and Hollywood Hits

Apple products were in more than 40 percent of top movies last year, an advantage as traditional advertising falls flat.

For most of Gossip Girl’s first four seasons, none of the hit show’s glamorous teens carried the most talked-about smartphone of the last five years: Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone. 
Bloomberg  businessweek recently carried on article on Apple.s product marketing in popular  Hollywood Movies Because of a product placement deal, they could only be seen with phones chosen by Verizon Wireless. Then, this season, shortly after the deal lapsed, several main characters started receiving their “Xoxo, Gossip Girl” texts on Apple’s hit device.
The cast’s sudden conversion cost the Cupertino (Calif.)-based iPhone maker nothing. Apple has spent decades strengthening its subtle but powerful grip over Hollywood, and unlike many companies, says it never pays for its products to appear on television or in movies. The company’s gadgets were discussed or shown 891 times on TV in 2011, up from 613 in 2009, according to researcher Nielsen (NLSN). In the same year, iDevices appeared in more than 40 percent of the movies that topped the weekly box office, according to Brandchannel, which tracks product appearances. That’s nearly twice the penetration of the next most common brands in Hollywood—Dell (DELL)Chevy (GM), and Ford (F)

The above charts compiled by  Jeremy Reimer  shows the Personal Computing market share for the last 25 years .The first personal computer, the MITS Altair 8080, was released in 1975 and changed the world forever. A handful of geeks (Bill Gates included) saw this humble $395 kit as the beginning of something big… but nobody knew how big!
The Altair sold a few thousand units in 1975. Today, more than 130 million personal computers are sold each year!  According to  Jeremy Reimer   there were once many different platforms for personal computing — a glance at a 1980 issue of Popular Computing revealed over 100 different manufacturers of incompatible brands!

The Making of iPhone 5 : Evolution and Timeline Of iPhones

This Infographic is courtesy Dusan Belic from IntoMobile and you can see the full infographic below this story.  This data shows the iPhone evolution from the first iPhone back in January 2007 and Beyond. Starting then with the original iPhone,iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the as yet unreleased iPhone 5.

The infographic shows various categories for all the iPhone models including the processor, display, connectivity, camera, apps and more and it shows how far Apple has progressed with the iPhone in a relatively short space of time. For example the processor of the first iPhone was a 412MHz ARM 11 and by the iPhone 4 that had evolved to a 1GHz A4 processor. The iPhone 5 expected processor is shown as a 1GHz A5 dual-core processor.

The camera  has moved up, from a 2-megapixel fixed-focus shooter on the original iPhone, moving to an auto-focus 3.2-megapixel on the iPhone 3GS and what is predicted to be an 8-megapixel auto-focus for the iPhone 5. When the initial iPhone was first announced back in 2007 there were no apps However,  post the iPhone 3GS in 2009 there were 50,000 apps available and by October 2011, when we expect to see the iPhone 5 launched, there will be a staggering 500,000+ apps available.

Apple App Store hits 500000 apps : [Infographic]



source :

Apple’s App Store today broke 500,000 approved applications, proving that although Android has more users, Apple is still the king of apps. 

Early Tuesday morning  as Apple  reached  “another milestone  by adding the ”  app No. 500,000″ to its popular App store, which as of January, has seen more than 10 billion apps downloaded to its iPhone, iPad and iPod devices. The total number of apps currently available in the store is around 400,000 provided by an impressive 85,569 developers. This  is  due to older apps being updated and other being taken off the marketplace.

Further to hitting such a monumental milestone in App Store history, some 37 percent (approx. 148,000) of open applications are available for download without charge. And the average purchase price attached to fee-based downloads is a mere $3.64 USD

The statistics show Apple is far ahead of its closest competition, Google, which reached 294,000 apps earlier this month on three billion downloads. Meanwhile, Nokia has around 50,000 apps. To honor the occasion, three companies specializing in iOS apps – game-maker Chillingo, app search engine Chomp and app blog 148apps – have created an infographic highlighting some of the most interesting figures related to the vast ecosystem of iOS apps. According to their data, there are 85,569 unique app developers; the most popular iOS app is Angry Birds, and 37% of iOS apps are free, while another 29% of all apps cost only $0.99.

Research firm iSuppli predicts Apple’s app store revenue will hit $4 billion in 2011, accounting for three-quarters of the total apps sold. Meanwhile, Google recently announced that it would ensure Android products will be promptly upgraded to the latest version of the operating system for at least 18 months after release.

Apple’s selective app policy has proved worthwhile over Android’s Wild West mentality of letting anything and everything into the store.For programmers, Google’s limited sales and software fragmentation makes it less worthwhile to develop games and apps for Android. In a recent survey conducted by DigitalTrends, About 82 percent of developers surveyed said it was hard for their work to get noticed, and 57 percent said they are not satisfied with the revenues generated through the marketplace.
