Apple has, yet again, released a new iPhone. To no ones surprise, it looks strikingly similar to one that Gizmodo managed to acquire under dubious circumstances, at best, a few months ago. I’m currently oogling how small it is:
My droid comes in a 14mm thick versus the iPhone 4G 9.4mm ((if you are to believe the Gizmodo measurements)), almost a 33% reduction in thickness…that’s notable. Even compared to the iPhone 3G, which measures 12.3mm thick, it’s about a 24% reduction.
The Apple A4 also makes an appearance in the updated iPhone, which I think is interesting given Apple’s history with Motorola and now Intel. Could they be looking to dump Intel and produce there own CPUs?
Apparently, I’ve also been going about dating wrong:
“Paradigm shifts are for people too stupid to spot trends.”
In addition to being funny, the quote makes a good point. A paradigm shift is just a major change in the way things work. An example might be Apple switching from the Power PC chip to the Intel chip. However, if you looked close enough Apple was probably dropping hints the entire time about wanting to leave IBM and go to Intel. Thus, most people viewed the switch as a paradigm shift. Whereas it was really a trend.
