The small pocket of the jeans is for the iPod Nano | Digital Trends Spanish

"Have you ever wondered what this pocket is for?" Steve Jobs said before hundreds of attendees, among journalists and Apple sycophants (employees, then) during the presentation of the iPod Nano, held on September 7, 2005 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. "I always wondered," Jobs responded to laughter and applause from the audience. "Well, now we know, because this is the iPod Nano", he finished by showing the iPod Nano, until that moment the smallest music player presented by Apple. Then the typical Steve Jobs verbiage began. "It will take your breath away ... you won't believe it until you have it in your hands, 1,000 songs and an incredible color screen ... it is one of the most incredible products ever created by Apple," he described.

Ping: Apple’s social network attempt that failed | Digital Trends Spanish

Commonly, we are used to seeing almost every Apple product and launch triumph. For the same reason, finding something that escapes this logic will always attract our attention. This happened in September 2010, when the apple company decided to venture into the world of social networks, launching Ping. This network was focused on the musical field and was announced as a platform that would allow users to closely follow the private and professional lives of their favorite artists. Back then, Ping had to compete with MySpace, which was still around today. Thus, Apple's bet was presented on September 1 by Steve Jobs, who explained that it was a "social network about music." "We believe that it will be very popular because 160 million people will be able to connect from today," he said opti...

Steve Jobs was working on an iPhone nano | Digital Trends Spanish

By 2011, Apple had already become one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world. Much helped the iPhone 4, one of his most popular devices and the one that was in force at that time. In that year, it was rumored that the company could be working on a supposed iPhone nano, a device smaller and cheaper than the iPhone 4. Although the technology never launched that device, an email from Steve Jobs revealed now, realizes that the apple company was developing an iPhone nano at that time. The mail from Jobs is dated October 2010, and is an agenda for a strategy meeting. The problem is that it does not reveal many details about the device. In the text, Jobs cited his team to meet, with a brief outline of what the plan of this iPhone would be. One of the ideas was to develop a low...

Luxo Jr., the story of the iconic first Pixar short | Digital Trends Spanish

It took almost 60 years for animated films to have their biggest technological change since Disney implemented rotoscopy in Snow White (1937). The revolution came from the hand of Pixar, a production company whose origins cross Lucasfilm with Steve Jobs and who had in Toy story (1995) an influential and successful debut feature. The truth is that it took almost a decade for Pixar's pinino to become Toy story. That first step was Luxo Jr. (1986), a short film that may seem unknown to the viewer by name, but which visually must be part of the graphic pop culture of the millennial generation and is that, after all, the playful table lamp serves as a kind of glorious introduction to every Pixar movie from Toy story until Luca. The mastermind of the short film was animator John Lasseter. ...

Ten years of a revolution called iPad | Digital Trends Spanish

I don't have a tablet, I have an iPad. This is how clear and jealous many users were when, at the beginning of the 2010s, they were asked about the device that rested in their hands. And it is that the iPad was the object of desire of a whole generation. Not only because it was lighter than a laptop. Also because it allowed surfing the internet, reading, sending emails, taking and viewing photos, recording videos, listening to music, playing games ... It was also easy to use thanks to its sharp 9.7-inch touchscreen. “What this device does is extraordinary. It is the best browsing experience I have ever seen.

That’s how successful Apple imagined it would be in the late 90s | Digital Trends Spanish

We have all done the exercise of trying to guess how we will be in the future, it is part of our essence to be curious. So have large companies. A classic video from 1987 lets us know how Apple imagined it would be ten years in the future, that is, in 1997, as pointed out Engadget. Back then, the company was rethinking its future and found nothing better than to do so through a unique record that showed it as a technology leader in the late 1990s. Too optimistic Although the video can be considered a parody, it is also possible to warn that Apple, indeed, imagined this way in the future. Within the brief record it is necessary to highlight some technological "advances", such as curious glasses called Vista Mac II that functioned like a computer and even allowed the inc...

This is what Bill Gates thinks of Elon Musk and Steve Jobs | Digital Trends Spanish

Elon Musk and Steve Jobs have triumphed in technology in style, creating empires that raised them to the top of the list of the world's richest tech entrepreneurs. Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, Larry Page and several others could also be added to this classification. But put to compare, some media have dubbed Elon Musk as "the new Steve Jobs" because the two coincide in some attributes that do not characterize other successful entrepreneurs, such as being visionaries and media leaders. Bill Gates has met both of them and in a Blooomberg Technology interview has explained why he does not consider Elon Musk to be the next Steve Jobs when the journalist has asked him about this specifically. For Gates this comparison is an “oversimplification”, since they are very differe...

Former Apple engineer claims to have created a secret iPod | Digital Trends Spanish

It was 2005 and Apple had just launched the latest generation of the iPod, one of the greatest successes of Steve Jobs' company.

This is how Shayer himself describes it in a column in TidBits, specialized blog where professionals who worked at Apple write. As if it were a movie, the engineer describes the scene as follows: “I was sitting at my desk, writing codes for the new iPod, when my boss's boss abruptly enters the room and closes the door. He turns to me and says, 'I have a special mission for you and your boss doesn't know anything about it. You must help ...
