Good evening everybody!
Obviously we all are aware that the iPhone 6 was recently released on the market and is clearly a very hot item. The iPhone 6 is something I personally am waiting to get once my upgrade is ready so I’ve been doing research online, looking up what new feature this phone has to offer. Some of the cool things the iPhone now has to offer is
- a retina display screen
- a fitness tracker that measures your activity during the day
- a new exposure control in iOS 8 for taking photos
- more advanced video capability
- slow motion video at 240 frames per second
- time lapse mode (very cool!)
- apple pay (meaning you can now purchase things with your phone with 1 touch!! <this is crazy )
Here is an actual picture of the iPhone 6, it comes in three sizes and has a more rounded appearance compared to the 5 and the 5s
WOW, it is insane how far Apple has come with it’s technology in the past few years alone.
Getting back to the assignment, how does all of this connect back to digital media?
While researching the iPhone 6, I came across some videos that were released of what the iPhone 6 was suppose to bring to the table before the design was actually announced. What I came across was a lot of made up promised technologies that the phone doesn’t actually support. Like for example, this video that shows the 6 having Hologram capabilities.
This video is a man showing us an “actual off the assembly line” iPhone 6 with Sapphire Crystal Glass display. This display is supposedly “knife proof” (no screen protector needed here)
Unfortunately, the “iPhone 6” in this video ^^ looks nothing like the actual iPhone 6.
MORAL OF MY BLOGPOST,
DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET!
Technology has too many capabilities and some people have too much time on their hands.
