iPod Minis: iOS Staff Changes, iTunes Overhaul?, iWatch Tidbits

Thursday April 10, 2014
  • If you don't like the interface and design sensibility of iOS 7, this may be bad news for you: Greg Christie, who runs the Human Interface group at Apple, is leaving the company. The move appears to put oversight of the user interface of all Apple products in the hands Jony Ive, Apple's senior vice president of Design, who led the iOS 7 work. Despite some rumors that Christie is leaving due to clashes with Ive, it seems that the split is amicable.
  • Music sales are declining and iTunes Radio hasn't been a big hit, so Apple is reportedly planning major changes to iTunes, according to Billboard. Those changes could include creating a Spotify-style streaming system in iTunes or creating an iTunes app for Android.
  • On the iWatch front, rumor has it that suppliers have sent key hardware components to Apple recently for approval prior to heading into production.

iPod Minis: Amazon's Apple TV Competitor, Office for iPad, Legal News

Thursday April 3, 2014
  • Amazon this week announced its competitor to the Apple TV: Fire TV. The US$99 set-top box includes apps for Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, and other video services. An optional game controller helps turn the device into a game console, too. It looks like a really interesting product. I'll be curious to see whether Amazon can take a substantial share of the market.
  • Microsoft has released versions of its Office apps for iPad. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (all links go to the App Store) are available for free and allow users to view files. In order to be able to create and edit files, you need to subscribe to Microsoft's Office 365 plan for $99/year.
  • The endless flood of legal news brought these development over the last week:
  • Apple and Samsung are heading back to court with Apple contending that Samsung infringed on some of its key iPhone patents. Apple is seeking as much as $2 billion in damages. The jury has been selected.
  • If you've bought ebooks from Amazon, iTunes, and other stores, you may have started getting credits from publishers as a result of their settlement with the Dept. of Justice. In total, I got a little less than $3 (thanks DoJ!). Alternatively, some consumers are seeking class-action damages, a plan a judge allowed to move forward this week.
