Apple’s Schiller was right about Google Glass all along

Apple’s Schiller was right about Google Glass all along

Unless you have Google Glass, chances are you’re not interested in them. After slowly winding down the Explorer program, Glass’ future is a bit uncertain. Google isn’t killing the project off, but they are sidelining the wearable while they refocus their efforts. Most weren’t interested in dropping $1,500 to look goofy and crane their eye upward, leaving Google Glass to a nerdy, niche market. If Google Glass left you thinking “nobody normal would wear those things”, you’re not alone. At least one Apple exec felt the same way.

Apple’s Phil Schiller tells Android users to “be safe out there”

Android is no stranger to malware. We've seen several instances of fake apps making their way into the Google Play store that are infested with malicious code, and while it just takes common sense to weed out the fake apps, some users can be unlucky enough to miss a couple and end up installing malware on their Android devices. Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, wants to remind you all to "be safe out there."

Apple’s Schiller: Don’t hold your breath for a cheap iPhone

Apple’s Schiller: Don’t hold your breath for a cheap iPhone

Rumors of a cheap iPhone are unfounded, Apple's Phil Schiller has insisted, saying that despite the sales potential for a budget smartphones such models "will never be the future of Apple's products." Schiller, SVP of worldwide marketing, denied a super-cheap model was Apple's strategy for the developing market in an interview with the Shanghai Evening News, even though recent leaks indicated that a low-cost iPhone was in the pipeline for 2013.

Apple’s Phil Schiller reintroduces the iPhone in Samsung case

Apple’s Phil Schiller reintroduces the iPhone in Samsung case

The senior vice president worldwide marketing at Apple, Phil Schiller, took the stand in the Samsung case this morning to convince the jury that the iPhone's design and Apple's approach with it and the iPad were wholly unique. In doing so, Schiller (and Apple) hope to make it clear that there are elements that Samsung latched on to for their own smartphone and tablet lines in a way that damaged Apple's prospective sales in the process. Schiller's questioning in the case thus far has ranged from the development of the iPhone (and the iPad at the same time) to the company's advertising strategies from start to present.

Apple’s Samsung sanctions denied as Schiller and Forstall testify

Apple’s Samsung sanctions denied as Schiller and Forstall testify

Apple's draconian sanction demands for Samsung have been rejected, with the Apple vs Samsung judge refusing to grant an early victory and instead waiting to hear from top Cupertino execs today. Following Samsung's publication of rejected evidence, much to the court's fury, Apple had insisted that the only rightful judgement was that its design patents - and accusations of Samsung infringement - be upheld. Justice Lucy Koh failed to agree, however, instead laying down the law to Samsung with regards what "Sony-style" design evidence it could cite. Meanwhile, senior VP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller and senior VP of iOS software Scott Forstall are expected to testify first thing on Friday morning.

White iPhone gets new camera & sensor design, but is no thicker insists Schiller

White iPhone gets new camera & sensor design, but is no thicker insists Schiller

Apple has apparently modified more than just its color processes in the production of the new white iPhone 4, with new teardowns showing a tweaked main camera lens and a modified proximity sensor. According to MacOtakara, the 5-megapixel camera on the white version of the handset is further recessed than on its black counterpart, potentially to avoid light seepage through the new chassis. Meanwhile, Phil Schiller has taken to Twitter to deny reports that the white iPhone 4 is thicker than the black.

Apple’s Phil Schiller comments on Ninjawords censor scandal

Apple’s Phil Schiller comments on Ninjawords censor scandal

The internet has been abuzz over the past few days over speculation that Apple demanded an iPhone dictionary app both censor itself and be classified 17+ under the App Store's new age restriction guidelines.  Prime among their complaint about the Ninjawords dictionary app was that it gave access to "vulgar words", which Apple's app approval team highlighted in their feedback; the list was criticised for being relatively generic, and present in just about every dictionary.  According to Apple's Phil Schiller, however, it wasn't so much the words they mentioned, but the "offensive urban slang" - and, since Ninjawords is based on an editable wiki dictionary, the possibility for more such slang - the app also gave access to.
