Has Apple finally killed its famous ‘i’?

Apple Brand Identity Guidelines

One surprise during Apple’s big event last week was that the company unveiled two new products… and neither of them contained the letter “i.” Although we expected Apple to show off its first-ever wearable computer at the event, we thought that it would be called either the iWatch or iBand and were a little surprised to see it labeled the Apple Watch. Similarly, Apple’s mobile payment platform was dubbed Apple Pay instead of iPay, which further signaled Apple might be moving in a different direction when it comes to branding.

OUCH: Apple exec mocks Samsung's 'four or five' watches that 'nobody is wearing'

Apple Watch Vs. Samsung Gear

Over the past year, Samsung has announced a mind-numbing six different smartwatches that run on four different platforms and none of them so far have come close to being hits. This fact isn’t lost on Jeff Williams, who serves as Apple’s senior vice president for operations and who was chosen to be the project lead for the Apple Watch. In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Williams takes a dig at Samsung’s approach to flooding the market with gobs of different gadgets and hoping that one of them will manage to stick.

Former exec bashes PayPal for bashing Apple

Apple Vs Paypal

Earlier this week, PayPal joined a long line of companies that sought to mock, belittle or bash Apple in marketing messages in an effort to promote competitive offerings. Focusing on the recent “Nudegate” scandal in which hundreds of nude photos and videos of celebrities were leaked as a result of iCloud breaches, Paypal posted a promotional note suggesting that because iCloud was hacked using brute force attacks, Apple’s new mobile payment service Apple Pay is not secure.

Why the iPhone 6 will give you more for your money than any previous model

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Cost

Apple has kept iPhone pricing in place rather than increase it for the iPhone 6, even while offering more storage to users – in fact, the 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 models purchased either on-contract or off-contract are cheaper than their corresponding predecessor – though it also introduced the more expensive iPhone 6 Plus versions this year. However, Apple appears to be paying a lot more than in previous years to make the handsets, a new Quartz report reveals.
