Spring has just arrived. Here are some new events and ideas happening in STEM* world. (*Science, technology, engineering and mathematics)
Apple turns 40 this year, time to celebrate the company’s many tech innovations and popular design over last four decades. Apple Spring event on Monday kicked off the celebration at its HQ, launched new iPhone SE and iPad Pro along with some updates of Apple TV and Watch.
Meantime a new series of videos was published by Apple to show a powerful image of technology. A good start of new season?
Go big or go small
From small to extra-large screen, then from super plus size down to 4 inch only, Apple announced new iPhone SE and iPad Pro to catch plenty of eyes on small devices. When they were expected to make bigger and larger phones, Apple’s hardware is getting smaller with a change in high-end style. Good news for small phone lovers, iPhone SE comes with a cheaper price ever in the full iPhone lineup.
Apparently iPhone SE is not the next big thing, it’s the most notable downsized device at Apple family, or more looks like time-traveling budget model, what do you actually get with this smaller package? Apple debuted iPhone SE as the most powerful 4‑inch phone ever, unveiled it’s created and reinvented from the inside out such as A9 chip, M9 motion coprocessor, 12mp camera and photos. With their idea of a big step to small, it’s not only a small edition, also a powerful edition packed with latest technology.
Small is big, technology matters. Like it or hate it, guess what’s on the top of trending list again?
Design small to be powerful
Back to 5 years ago I got my first iPhone, since then I have been obsessed with many features of smartphone for videos, games and all kinds of apps. Once a friend said look why I carry around an oversized phone with giant screen everywhere, I actually use my phone more for calling, texting and pictures, don’t really do much on the phone, I’d rather go for iPad or computer with much better display.
A good point or not? Remember when iPhone 6 Plus just came out, people made fun of its huge size would reach the size of iPad mini one day. Speaking this game of size, I agree smart phone is still a phone in whatever fancy look. Not everyone loves big phone, I do like a phone small and light weight to fit in every pocket, good to be used by one hand comfortably, particularly it’s completely modern and powerful above standard.
Powerful tech fits all design. Small and tiny wearable devices are more and more on the trending list from smart watch to 3D virtual reality, these hand-held electronic technologies are worn on the body without taking any space in your bags, truly easy to carry on as part of body accessories. Making hand-sized phone with the very latest technology to fit in your pockets, it sounds an excellent tech solution to go back the basic and original idea: Bigger is better, small is powerful.
What to expect in tech world
Everyday technologies are transforming business, our life and the global community enormously and surprisingly. Making this world a better place, that somehow it’s our big expectation in technology and science.
Apple’s special event also featured corporate social messages as part of the keynote by releasing its policy in different areas including privacy and environment. Whether it’s a strategy or a vision, taking social and environmental responsibilities was never so expected for tech companies.
Technology drives the world moving fast, shapes our social life and culture thriving in a digital community. No doubt social media and digital technologies are playing huge impact in many different ways. Twitter just celebrated its 10 years anniversary. Ever imagined a small role of 140-character tweet makes huge influences in our world.
Make the history, change the world, sustain the environment, it’s all about technologies.
