Can Apple revolutionize once more?

Can Apple revolutionize once more?

So we’ve all heard about the iWatch (or whatever it’s called) right? Apple’s up-coming new wrist gadget that’s supposed to change our lives for the better much like the iPhone first did.

Will it? It shall be interesting to see. Granted i’m not fully read into the subject matter and what it is that the iWatch is actually supposed to do to enhance my existence. I do however remember that Sony Ericsson had a wrist-device out there a few years ago that connected to your phone via Bluetooth and alerted you of incoming texts etc.

So the idea of a wrist-carried extension of your phone isn’t very new or revolutionizing. Apple has something up it’s sleeve that Sony Ericsson never had though, and that’s an extremely loyal customer base who will buy anything shiny that Apple puts out there. No doubt that the iWatch will sell like ice cream on a sweltering day if you ask me, be it a great product or not.

It’ll be interesting to see how Apple will do in the future though, and how long the market will maintan it’s taste for Apples. Samsung has taken alot of market share lately, and like the above article mentions the air has gone out of Apple slightly since Tim Cook took it over from Jobs.

The future is uncertain.

Elon Musk’s fortune swells by $2.9 billion as Tesla, SolarCity surge – May. 28, 2013

Is it just me or does it seem like everything this guy has touched as of late turns into gold?

Tesla motors is a rocket on the exchange and it does seem like they’ve succeeded so far with the new, more mainstream, model S.

I’d never heard of Solar City before but seems like they too are carving gold with a butter knife for the time being, with mr Musk (sounds kind of funny) in involvement. I do believe that solar power is a thing of the future, it remains to be seen how well this particular company will be able to take advantage of that however.

Broader times ahead!

As I woke up this morning and was still lying in my bed thinking about what I need to do today I started contemplating how I could create some more material for this blog of mine. I’ve actually had that thought come to me on several occasions before, when I’ve wanted to share business articles and the likes with the world, but I’ve always ended up thinking that “hey, this is meant to be a blog about adult and non-traditional college life; not a business blog which there are already thousands of out there!”.

Now I’ve come to some sort of conclusion of compromise. This IS a non-trad student’s journey to and through college, but I am also gonna start putting other parts of my life on here in the future. It may be a business article or something about training and nutrition, but other stuff is going to come on here as well, that’s my main point.

I know that my reader base is extremely limited, but I enjoy making the odd post here every now and then nevertheless.

To you who happen to read this, have a good one and keep cracking the books!

Apparently there are ways to make college cheaper though (in reference to my previous post below). It probably doesn’t apply to 95% of us, but still 🙂

Worth a look if your child wants to go to college out of state.

Will you marry me (and my student loan debt)?

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/columnist/2013/05/25/student-debt-marriage-wedding-loans/2351405/

$1000-1500/month in student loan payments?!

Staggering numbers…couldn’t imagine someone actually pay that much, a MONTH, on student loans. You’d hope the job you’re getting when you’re done weighs up for it. Yikes.
