2 WEEK #37


4 Halleluiah! After months of rumors, leaks (pretended ones, most likely) and expectations, Apple finally released the iPhone 6! Or, more precisely, the iPhones 6: a small one and a big one, the small one being already much bigger than its predecessor (4,7”), getting very close to devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 (5,1”) or HTC One M8 (5”). Those new iPhones embed a NFC chipset. They come with a smartwatch… Does this sound familiar? Well, isn’t it what already existed for a while in the Android world and at Apple’s main competitor, Samsung? Does Apple start loosing its ability to innovate on smartphones? Of course, they still are ahead of the competitions in terms of user experience and elegancy, but they are also ahead of it in terms of price (around 16% more than a Galaxy S5, for example). Without significant innovations, consumers may move even more massively to the Android world and bring back Apple to the pre-iPhone (or pre-iPod) era: a middle player with a bunch of loyal consumers but little transformation.

6 Drones were born with military uses, then entered the entertainment market w/ companies like Parrot. As this article* reports, there seems to be a new potential for drones: business uses. As an example, the article mentions the possibility for insurance companies to send drones to actually survey damages of insured goods. Of course, Amazon already investigated the option of using drones to quickly deliver goods to buyers. This especially highlights the fact there is some incredibly huge room for innovations, with devices or technologies that already exist and at just sitting there (*) http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/10/forget-the-apple-watch-think-drones-in-the-enterprise waiting for the bright idea!


8 The success of Waze has been confirmed when Google acquired it back in 2013. The same luck could be wished to Moovit, an Israelian company, that launched a Waze-like service for public transportation. Based on user’s input and other sensors (GPS), Moovit gives their users a real-time snapshot of the traffic and the estimated arrival time. Moovit also partners with VTC Lyft, so that users can order a taxi from their Moovit application. And they plan to partner with other such providers. This is a nice example of how an application is able to standardize information so that different contexts can be understood the same way by users: in 400 cities, users can get the same information about public transportation. Pretty great for foreign visitors!
