Apple is breaking all kinds of laws… but in a good way


BGR

Just how amazing were Apple’s Q1 2015 earnings results? So amazing that the company is seemingly shredding years’ worth of conventional wisdom about how much an established firm can keep growing. Jean-Louis Gassée at Monday Note has written a tongue-in-cheek look at all the “laws” of economics Apple has broken with its record-crushing earnings report and he explains why some of these laws were highly questionable to begin with.

Apple spotted driving sensor-equipped vehicles in the Bay Area


Interesting stuff for sure.

Gigaom

San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX has been following a mysterious minivan tooling around Concord, California, with a roof rack fool of advanced sensors. Checking in with the Department of Motor Vehicles, the station found it was registered to Apple.

That led to some immediate speculation that [company]Apple[/company] is now testing its own self-driving vehicle fleet, but that’s probably a bit of a stretch. The Dodge minivan clearly has cameras and what appear to be light detection and ranging sensors, which are commonly know as LIDAR or just “lasers.” That’s pretty standard fare for a mapping vehicle, and Apple after all has its own cartography and navigation software, Apple Maps.

A sound bargain from MPow.


First up is a huge shoutout to MPow for sending this unit out for the review. You should definitely check out the web page at the link for all their products and a new section being added to the site for giveaways.

The MPow Muze touch BT 4.0 Headphones are by no means the loudest headphones you can find, but at this price point there aren’t many, in my opinion, to beat them.

The touch controls, once gotten used to, work well and I had no problems with them at all, very smooth and intuitive. A neat touch if I might say so.

From a sound point of view, they are driven more towards the bass happy of us. When connected via Bluetooth to a device I found the best thing to do was turn the device to it’s max. volume then use the touch controls to find your happy place, they are pretty bass laden but connected via iOS I could not get them to distort, believe me, I tried with many genres of music and the limiting on the volumes prevents it but still allows them to be loud, and the sound cancellation prevents the wife or kids from lowering your enjoyment. A full range of sounds is easily heard right through to some pretty high trebles too.

If you run out of battery, though 12 hours is more than enough, then you just plug them in via the supplied flat anti-tangle cable using the 3.5 mm headphone jack and you’re good to go again. Once home you just plug in via the micro USB for a couple of hours and you have that care free unto 12 hours of wire free music again.

They have plenty of soft padding in all areas and you only start to feel them after long 3-4 hours sessions of listening and even then I didn’t find them too uncomfortable to carry on listening. If you’re in the market for such a set of cans and you’re on a budget then you can’t go far wrong with these.
