Delayed Oscars on a Friday

0 Permalink

Happy Friday Lovelies! Finally, finally, I am lying on my sofa and can fully relax – I have been waiting for this the whole week! It’s been such a busy day today again, emails overflowing my inbox from all sides and continents possible. However – I always prefer busy days over absolute boring days. Now that I have not had the chance to watch the Oscars 2015 yet – so sad! – I have finally decided to plant myself in front of my new mac and just enjoy the Oscars. Oh, and the Swiss Music Awards are also on tonight! I must admit that I am not really watching them intensely, however I do have them on in the background (without voice) to always check a little what is going on there. Wishing you all a fun Friday night! xo

Apple: Bigger, Better, Gold

It’s really no surprise at all: I am a huge Apple-Fan – an Apple freak, almost. It also isn’t too surprising that Apple would again take our breaths away and make us speachless with the power of innovation. Yes, there is a new iPhone, yes, there are two iPhones, yes, the payment method is forever changed, yes, Apple again has changed a way of living (think iTunes!), yes, it’s as stylish as ever. But what really took my breath away, is the Watch. Let’s face it, it might not be a surprise that one was presented, but: the features and the extend of this new innovation are mindblowing. Never, in my wildest dreams (and I can dream, like no other) did I imagine any of this.

The Watch is not only so super stylish – have you seen the rose gold edition?! – but so, so cool. My words are currently failing and all I can say is: I am so excited for 2015 and the release of this new iBaby (ha, new word!). I won’t go into all the innovate features one NEEDS to know, because I would bet most of you have either seen the videos, seen the pictures, read about it or been on Apple by this time. I must admit I was a tinsy, tiny, little bit worried, that the Watch might not be as stylish. Might not work with all outfits – think the business outfit vs. the weekend-slumber look (still, stylish). But how wrong was I: Apple obviously thought every detail through. Not only will they release different colors of the Watch, but also the bands are available in different materials, different colors and can be switched depending on the outfit, the mood or the activity. Think about it: one in black, one in steel, one out of leather for the weekend and a rubber one for the gym. It’s seems so classy, so timeless, yet it is still on-top of all digital-smart-watches on the market. I am absolutely impressed – as always. So yes, I will surely put some money aside for this beauty coming up early in 2015!

Let’s not forget the iPhone 6 (and 6 plus), though! I am not sure of what to think of the large edition, as it seems almost like an iPad mini to me – size wise, but I guess that is everyones own taste and opinion. What really blew my mind, as previously touched upon, is the new payment method coming along with the newly integrated chip. Apple pay is similar like itunes. itunes has changed our way of buying music – we barely go into shops anymore to buy CDs – or do you? I cannot think of anyone buying music regularly, not having an itunes account. Apple pay has the same potentials in my eyes. Who needs credit cards and coins in the future, when one can pay everything with a highly secured chip in the phone that is activated with their own fingerprint. I doubt that we will say goodbye to coins in the next few years. But give it a thought – if all new paying technologies are updated to work with Apple Pay, there really will be no more need one day for coins. Consequences? Well, shopping-addicts that loose sight and control of their savings (due to not having actual paper in their hands), well, might shop even more. Good for the industry, good for the closet and a hell-of-a-good practice for self-control.

Last but no least, for all those not wanting to buy the iPhone 6, not being able to afford it immediately or those just wanting to wait for another year or two (I will most likely keep my iPhone 5S another year), can upgrade to iOS 8. I used to get super bored of my smartphones before owning my first iphone (my first one being the iPhone 2).  Since the iPhone, no boredom arises – ever. It’s so simple, yet so brilliant. With these amazing updates, I always feel like holding a brand new phone in my hands. Of course, I am also super excited for this new iOS 8 update coming out (most likely September 17, 2014).

Now my next question is: Will there be a new iPad presented this year, too? I guess the above easily shows how quickly (too quickly, maybe) I am amazed by these innovate, new, technological, yet classy and super-stylish products coming out soon. Below find a few screenshots from the Apple Website, of my favorite parts. What are you most excited about, if anything?
