Steve Jobs memorial unveiled in Russia

Jan 9 2013, 12:22pm CST | by

Moscow, Jan 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A memorial to renowned tech innovator and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was unveiled in Russian city of St. Petersburg Wednesday.

Moscow, Jan 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A memorial to renowned tech innovator and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was unveiled in Russian city of St. Petersburg Wednesday.

The monument, a giant replica of a black, late model iPhone with a screen that displays a photo and video slideshow of Jobs' life, is located in the courtyard of the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics.

On the back, the monument features a QR code which observers can scan before being directed to a website commemorating the Apple co-founder.

The Progress IT Fund held a competition last year to select a designer for the monument. Out of more than 200 project ideas, the fund chose St. Petersburg native Gleb Tarasov's, entitled "Sunny QR Code".

Jobs, credited with helping to build Apple into a computer giant, died in October, 2011 after a long battle with cancer.

Apple products, among them the iPhone and iPad, enjoy widespread popularity among mostly urbanised, middle- and upper-class Russians.

iPhone 6 Plus: there's more to the big screen than a big piece of glass

Sep 18 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Mac World

While “big” phones are nothing new for the rest of the mobile industry, the iPhone 6 Plus represents a radical departure from Apple’s historical love for small screens. Still, the company’s first foray into "phablet" (ugh) territory has a distinct Apple flavor to itself—not only in the aesthetic choices that define its design, but also in a myriad little details—starting, for example, wit ...

Apple Lets You Return U2′s New Album

Sep 16 2014 9:41am CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

In a publicity stunt surely meant to impress rather than offend, Apple gave away U2’s latest studio album last week to everyone with an iTunes account. They didn’t just offer it to everyone, they placed it into each account as if it had already been purchased and that didn’t sit well with everyone. Honestly I’m not sure why, except in the cases where automatic downloads are turned on and ‘Songs of Innocence’ popped onto peoples’ phones. Songs of Innocence is not the most re ...
