Here are some impressions from Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2014 (WWDC) at Moscone Center in San Francisco. The motto of the conference was “Write the code, change the world” which fitted perfectly the introduction of Swift, a new programming language developed by Apple to replace Objective-C for developing application in the Apple ecosystem.

Isn’t this amazing? As ridiculous as it might sound. It brings back memories from my childhood. The nostalgia almost makes we want to look for old Macintosh computers I could revive. Check it out: The Return of the Flying Toasters, a tribute to After Dark by N. Landsteiner, www.masswerk.at
While visiting the recommendable Stylectrical exhibition at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, I learned nothing new as a well versed Apple maniac, but I stumbled upon some amazing pictures of destroyed Apple products. The collaboration between Michael Tompert and the photographer Paul Fairchild is called 12LVE and provides some amazing looking images. 12LVE by digital artist, Michael Tompert, provides society a mirror, forcing us to question our infatuation with mere objects. By annihilating the adored, pulverizing the precious, and obliterating the beloved, 12LVE reminds […]
As I was updating my Keynote for iPad app today, I notices two things: First, it now runs on the iPhone. Second, it supports the Keynote Remote app. I like this app already as it allows me to remote control my desktop Keynote presentations. With the combination of these two apps, the iPad 2 finally becomes a powerful business device. As I have an iPhone anyway I am good to go with my new presentation setup. Using the video mirroring functionality of […]
After reading several reviews of Apple’s GarageBand for iPad, I couldn’t resist. For just 4,99 $ it seems to be the best 8 track recording studio I’have ever seen. If you are interested I recommend this review by iLounge. At least trying out the drums is something you shouldn’t miss. I especially like the integrated sampler, allowing you to record your own samples. External microphones would be a recommended accessory for this. There is a integrated sample library in addition to you […]
Just recently I discovered a very cool iPhone app, called Seamless. What it does is quite simple: It crossfades music playing in itunes on your Mac to your iPhone – seamlessly. You might think this is an app of no real use to anyone, but try it for yourself. I certainly wouldn’t miss it for the world. Here is the ad for the app (nicely done by the way): It works like this: You have to install the Seamless app […]
I got the iPad 2 on its release date (March 25, 2011) at the Apple Store Alstertal Hamburg. After about 6 hours waiting in line, I opted for a 32GB model with 3G. The iPad 2 is a beautiful piece of technology and finally implements what I was waiting for: Video Mirroring. With a 30-pin to HDMI adapter one can see everything on the iPad and on any HDMI compatible TV or beamer. This is a killer feature for me. […]
