The iPhone is still the only phone that matters

BGR LogoFrom BGR  …”Come next year, the iPhone 8 will move to OLED screen, and this rumored screen technology change did not go unnoticed. Apple hasn’t even confirmed the move, and yet parts suppliers are already scrambling to meet Apple’s anticipated demand for OLED panels. …

…  “Rumors say that two of Apple’s three new iPhone models in 2017 will stick with LCD screens, which should also help keep LCD prices up.

“No smartphone but the iPhone can have such a big impact on the mobile industry, component suppliers included.”

UGNN : What’s hot and what’s not in the user group community this week 1611-21

InfoManager : what's new online I’m happy and sad this week. Happy because we had some fun discovering things posted by Mugs and Mug friends. However I’m sad because stupid fake, and rude posts far out-numbered real content. Even more disturbing is that it appears to be a trend. UG members who used to find real treasures that we were proud to share now just propagate junk and crap. Some of the best known MUGS in the world, known for their hugely beneficial sites and pages now dwindle to one or two real contributors. The leaders in our field and industry now tweeting dominos and media pander. Social media has proven itself as a remarkably powerful medium — for good or for bad. But it’s discouraging when it seems to be moving toward deep, snoring, mediocrity*, and that’s sad.

  • Android Phones Sending User’s Personal Data to a Firm in Shanghai?

Color Binoculars

At the recent events both Microsoft and Apple presented how they were addressing accessibility issues.  I don’t believe this app was mentioned.  It promises to address the issue of color blindness for the three most common types of color blindness.

The app was started at an MS Hackathon in 2015 and finished in the MS Garage program.  It was released on the 11th of November.  And uses the iPhone camera to adjust colors so the user can make it so the user can pick out flowers or choose matching colors.

Full story on Microsoft’s site here: http://blogs.microsoft.com/firehose/2016/11/11/color-binoculars-a-new-mobile-app-from-microsoft-garage-helps-colorblind-see-the-world-the-way-others-do/#sm.0001jupw41aq4dvor711x0a3vs10c
