Apple Just Gets It

It’s no surprise that Apple is making such huge strides in the consumer market. They follow the Human Factors tenet of providing a tool to get things done rather than an obtrusive device that one must adapt one’s life into. And not just in the products themselves, but in *how* those products are positioned.

Case in point, check out Sprint’s EVO 4G demo. It’s all about specs and “features to make other smartphones jealous”. Now contrast that with the practical, emotion-filled ad for FaceTime and the iPhone 4G. Screw the technical jargon, here’s how we make your life better.

Now Playing – Limited Engagement (Hopefully)

Let’s hope Skype is hurriedly developing support for the iPhone 4G. The much lauded video-conferencing capabilities of the iPhone 4G are only going to be possible using the Apple FaceTime app while strictly on WiFi. Apple is making FaceTime licensing available to other manufacturers, but they may be unwise in trying to corner the video market without interoperability. At the moment, they aren’t even functioning with their own Mac iChat app product! There are a lot of H.323 standards-based tools that will not allow this to go unaddressed. Resistance is futile!
