We are changing the direction of this blog. We largely used it to promote shows we where doing as a team. Going forward we will have network announcements, for our shows and their special events, guest announcements and so forth.. Which we will hope will allow the site to have frequent updates.
Daniel J. Lewis shares his thoughts on iOS 7, it’s similarities with Android, how it’s killing competition, and what you need to know even if you don’t have an iPhone.
Not an Apple fanboy
Before I begin, you should know that I am far from an Apple fanboy. I used Android and BlackBerry smartphones, grew up with Windows, and I’m often tweeting snarky remarks from @theRamenNoodle whenever there’s an Apple announcement.
But I do have an Apple house—MacBook Pros, iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPod Nano, Time Capsule, and a strong desire to get an Apple TV. I’m happy with my platform decisions, but I will readily defend the other options.
Borrowing from Android
iOS 7 will receive a huge design change. I question the readability of many of the changes. But I’m most surprised, but also pleased, at how many aspects of iOS 7 seem directly inspired by Android.
Improved “share to”?
Layers look like Windows 7
Apple killing the competition? No way! While they will offer new services that will steal some users from competing services, the power users will probably prefer the competition.
iCloud Keychain > LastPass and 1Password
iTunes Radio > Pandora and Spotify
Siri > Siri
Thoughts for website owners
You may not care at all about iOS 7, or you may think it’s disgusting. But if you have a website, you need to make sure you’re optimizing for Bing and not just Google. iOS 7 will use Bing search results for Siri queries, but the WWDC Keynote demonstrated Google results from Safari.
Predictions for iPhone 5s
Yes, yes. iPhone 5s will be “the most amazing iPhone ever.” Duh.
But realistically, here are my predictions for what will set iPhone 5s apart from iPhone 5.
Voice-recognition without data connection (making it much faster)
All the same-old stuff: faster CPU, better camera, maybe more RAM, maybe a 128 GB version

The first public Web Page – How has this changed our lives?
The first public site on the world wide web made its debut on April 30, 1992. The web was born in a European science lab known as CERN. The first page was a very rudimentary text-only primer, setting the stage for a revolution in the tech industry. In celebration of this twenty-year anniversary, let’s talk about the beginning of the world wide web, what it has become, and how has this changed our lives.
The world wide web was originally stated as being “a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents.” In looking at how the web changed our lives, we can first look at academia and the host of information available for research and knowledge. It altered the manner in which we communicate by providing a variety of platforms to conduct relationships. The web spawned an entire economic era of prosperity as well. With the good comes the bad and we have all experienced what it’s like to either lose personal data, have personal data stolen, or be subject to Internet scams.
