Apple is selected as the most admired company both in overall and in Computers by Fortune Magazine. Apple is winning this in the 4th consecutive years!!
Apple recently released iOS 5 (for iPad/ iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch 4th gen) and update for MAC OS X, Safari update, iTunes, iPhone configuration utilities. So virtually an update for anything you own from Apple. As typical of Apple we need to find out what are the new features in some of them since they quietly rollout update releases free unlike their major product launches.
The most interesting thing for me is that the new iPhone 4 can be used as personal hotspot where I can connect upto 5 WiFi devices to access net. So practically I can throw all the 3G dongles which was supporting only one device anyway. iPad acquired lots of speed boost which was not slower by any standards anyway. iPad and iPhone 4 supports HDMI video out too so that you can watch movies in these devices in TV apart from enhancing the existing wireless streaming and printing capabilities (Airplay and Airprint). Using iTunes Homesharing features you can wirelessly share iTunes Library though out your house.
Lots of reviews are written about iPAD 2 by many after getting hold of it. As expected people are head over heels on the moment they start handling / touching it unlike the looking at the new feature sets announced earlier. So Apple targeted to sell 5million iPad 2 in the first quarter alone.
Now what is left for us to look up to, expect next iPhone5 soon and in october the launch of killer product iPad 3 with retina display! Apple keeps us on our toes and find new ways to empty our pockets :)
