Apple iPad mini, la fin du miracle ?

  Je suis triste et j’ai passé une mauvaise nuit : j’ai regardé hier soir, mardi 23 octobre, comme des millions de personnes, la transmission en direct du « show Apple » qui présentait les nouveautés du moment et surtout le très attendu iPad mini. La vidéo de cette présentation est disponible sur le Web. Pourquoi cette tristesse ? Il y a dans cette conférence de presse une multitude de « signaux faibles » qui pointent tous dans la même direction :  Apple redevient un fournisseur « normal », sa magie et ses innovations sont dorénavant de l’histoire ancienne comme aux pires années qui avaient précédé le retour de Steve Jobs en 1997. Non, je ne suis pas un « Apple Fan » devenu un « Applephobe » ; les principaux produits présentés hier soir étaient de très bonne facture : Un Macbook pro 13’’ avec écran retina. De nouveaux iMac très élégants et performants. Un Mac min... (more)

“Disaster Avoidance – The Real Disaster is Focusing on Recovery”

Since early fall 2012, the Northeast region of the U.S. was repeatedly slammed with blow after blow from Mother Nature. From tropical storms and tornados to blizzards, weather-pattern anomalies paralyzed communities from Washington, D.C. through Portland, Maine in the last months. For these communities, spring couldn’t have come quick enough. Despite cute names like ‘Nemo,’ a ferocious blizzard that disrupted the lives of 40 million in early February, and ‘Sandy,’ the infamous hurricane that wreaked havoc to the Jersey shore and lower Manhattan in October, these disasters have been nothing but ugly. The toll these natural disasters have taken on local businesses continues to rise even months later as these areas struggle to rebuild. Hurricane Sandy alone is estimated to cost $65 billion in total damages according to a report released in January 2013 by global reins... (more)
