Fellow tweeter and blogger, Shhannon Cahill recently tweeted from a popular site known as Zite – an article about the new and upcoming iPhone 6! Yes, iPhone six, already. According to Apple, the new iPhone will be their most massive iPhone launch yet! Personally, I think they say that about everything they launch but that’s just me.
The above picture is the general idea and make of what an iPhone six will look like – similar to every other iPhone on the market. The article states, “In calendar year 2013, Apple sold 153.4 million iPhones, according to data the company revealed in quarterly earnings results.” Put that into perspective for a second.
Not much will be different with the upcoming iPhone other than the processing system, phone chip, and possibly the quality of the glass and camera. The usual stuff, as is every year. But this goes to show how dependent we are as Americans on technology and will do anything to have the latest and greatest out there.
When thinking of the newest iPhone, I automatically recall the Ferguson videos, Everything is a Remix. A remix is created from something that was preexisting and made to be better. An iPhone is just that, a remix of the previous version with new updates appealing to the target audience.
So why do we care, why do we have to have the remix of what we already have. We care because we are dependent on technology and feel as though we need it on a daily bases to do just about everything. Checking emails, typing whatever it may be, texting, communicating, and so on. All of these things are done on a smart phone, an iPhone which was once done with paper and pen.
What will the slogan be for the iPhone 6?
How many iPhones will there be before there is no more to remix?
