When Apple CEO Steve Jobs resigned in August after years of leading the company he founded in 1976, was already in a well-positioned in a post-PC era with 1000 engineers working on chips. Steve Jobs idea of getting low power and smaller is the key to everything moving for future technology in our time.
Apple employs more than 50,000 workforce worldwide. Since 2009 Apple started building its own chip design team, and now it is moving forward designing its own chips since Intel and AMD were still stuck in PC era. Apple needs chips that are powerful enough but also has very low power. Battery life is one of the most important parts in operation of mobile device. Apple latest A5 processor which run iPad 2 will now host iPhone 4S as well. A5 processor is not only twice fast than iPhone 4 which has A4 processor, it has improves battery life from 7 to 8 hours.
Not only Apple producing such extremely powerful processor but Apple removing hard drives from its product and replacing them with flash memory chips. Storage of iPhones, iPads, and MacBook Air are also made of flash. All Apple products are moving in this direction prompting the CEO of Silicon Valley to explain that form factor no longer becomes an issue of those fundamental changes. You can put computer into anything even on TVs.
It depends upon when Apple and those 1000 engineers putting magic in everything they want to unless makes sense at consumers end. The post-PC era began when the introduction of iPhone in 2007, and now, Steve Jobs before he left he declared Apple has ‘brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it’. Many are not startled of what he said because everybody knows in the Silicon Valley what he meant.
Steve Jobs knows when he left Apple there were series of post-PC products to be introduced in the years ahead. TechCrunch writer MG Siegler cautious on focusing much on iPhone story. Future technology of Apple believing not just an iPhone trend, maybe the hands of Apple 1000 engineers gives way for the invention of new strings of post-PC products in the future, and Steve Jobs has done his magic for all these products.
Now that Steve Jobs is out of sight, Apple Inc. still has the magic that they are capable of leading technology in modern world since Jobs and Apple directions are one-way to go. Everything has fit together that Apple itself is a great product: starts from the chips, the hardware, the software, the industrial design, the developer platform, the tightly controlled manufacturing, the marketing, the retail stores.
The post-PC era is now up to. The competition has just started as we see it when iPhone gives birth. When iPad introduction one year and half ago spurs the creation of other forms of tablet. It’s clear that Apple leading the way the revolutionary new phase of technology. Anyone who loves or hates Apple are making a turn of what’s the new strings of post-PC products are coming in.
We will not be surprise when iPhone and iPad one day became unwanted anymore as Apple makes a wave in the future.
