After a long, long journey to marriage equality (that included an official mail-in survey of the entire nation showing over 60% approval), same-sex weddings have begun in Australia.
And in a nod to the idea that the best camera is the one you have on you, Apple has created a new ad featuring those most romantic of wedding moments – a couple’s first dance – captured at LGBTQ weddings that were shot entirely on iPhone Xs.
Watch the very sweet spot, titled “First Dance,” below.
• In related news, Russia and Egypt are fighting to remove language in Principal 6 of the Olympic Charter which calls for banning discrimination based on sexual orientation. Both countries have been involved in anti-LGBTQ actions in past months.
• Marques Brownlee unboxes the new iPhone X – check out his thoughts below. Hubby Michael and I have both ordered the X as we haven’t upgraded our iPhones in years.
• While the majority of news outlets were covering yesterday’s indictments of three Trump campaign officials, several Fox News employees were embarrassed by their network’s obvious lack of coverage. At one point on Monday morning, Fox News was actually taking time to report on a hamburger emoji – “Look, the cheese is under the burger!!!”
Remember just a couple of years ago when “bigger” was the new trend in cell phones?
Put that in reverse because “smaller” is now the new “big.”
This morning Apple announced two new products – the 4 inch iPhone SE and a 9.7 inch iPad Pro – which are both smaller editions of previous Apple toys.
Though the iPhone SE looks like the iPhone 5S, its internals have been completely overhauled to keep up with modern-day performance. The iPhone SE will be available in a 16GB ($399) version and 64GB ($499) version. It’ll be available in over 110 countries by the end of May.
Apple also shared the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro during its press event in Cupertino today, which seems to boast many of the same specs as its 12.9-inch counterpart. The new tablet will be available March 31.
In the smartest time management yet seen in an iPhone line, Lucy Kelly has outsourced the job to a telepresence robot, also called Lucy. The robot, created by Californian company Double Robotics, is an iPad attached to a Segway-type device that allows a person to be somewhat physically present despite not being there.
The robot arrived to take the position of fourth-in-line at the flagship Apple Store on George Street at 5 a.m. Thursday, with Kelly communicating through it from 6 a.m. It is believed to be the first time a robot has lined up and purchased an iPhone.
Kelly is meanwhile chilling in the warmth of her office, while her robot counterpart stands in the wind and rain.
Kelly says there is no jealousy from those diehard fans who have been freezing through the nights. “Everyone thinks it is pretty cool, they were happy to let a robot go ahead,” she said.
