Apple Pays off $21 Million for the Clock design used in iPad

Apple Clock Swiss Railway 21 Million $

Working in the Tech industry by aligning  hundreds of aspects has never been much easier for anyone .

Apple offered a simple and beautiful Clock Application for it’s users via iOS 6 update free of charge ,but it was bit costly for  the company as $21 Million. Apple is very famous to suing other companies for patents . But when time comes worse ,Apple gets caught for the same cause . The clock design illustrated  here and used in iPad’s Clock App had been taken from Swiss Railway where they have this famous iconic clock in operation .Apple even failed to acknowledge the name of SBB in the app . After , Apple got notified by the Swiss Railway they have gone for a settlement of $21 Million and now Apple got the rights to use the design in all iPads and iPhones .

Last month SBB(Swiss Railway Operator ) announced it had reached a licensing deal that would allow Apple to use the design in iPads and iPhones, but didn’t disclose any details. Next time when you launch this app would know ,that how much it was costed to Apple !.

iOS 6 tracks your activities on Apple devices–A guide to stop it !

How to stop Apple tracking me on my mobile !

iOS6 Apple tracks your privacy ?

Do you own the brand new Apple iPhone5 ? or have you updated your Apple device to iOS6 recently ?then you are under the observation of someone for good..iOS 6 is coming with a feature turned on called “ IFA” that stands for "identifier for advertisers " . Apple paves the way to track the buying behaviours of the customers through this technology .This is pretty same like the cookies used in computers to track the users . IFA is very simple set of information that contains your ad clicking patterns and the buying behaviours on the net  and send to the interested parties via your Apple iOS6 device .

How to Stop IFA in Apple devices ?

This is a privacy related setting,but Apple covertly put the on /off option under very irrelevant  section of settings in the phone/Apple device .

Ok ,here is the way  : Just got to "General," then "About," and then navigate to the "Advertising" section. From there, you need to to turn "Limit Ad Tracking" on.

Please note Apple doesn’t track any of your personal information via this IFA, so ,no need to panic a lot  .

    Apple iOS 6– Completely free from Google products


    Everyone is trying to play smart ,in the space of technology . Samsung and Apple are having a tough time together now .Google is also not happy about the lawsuit filed by the apple against Samsung .

    iOS had lot of Google services integrated  with it’s very first stage ,Steve Jobs publically declared “you can’t really think about the internet of course without thinking about Google" at the very unveiling event of first Apple phone .

    But Apple started to work behind the scene ,to bring home groomed solutions instead of third party apps .I have written last year about the Apple’s workout on their own Map solution in another blog. Apple has completely came out from Google’s services in it new iOS 6 . No Google Maps, Google’s Youtube app also has been removed . The space for Google Search is only left now.

    Apple has integrated lot of third party Chinese applications like Baidu, Youku, Tudou and Sina Weibo in order to tackle the huge Chinese market .

    I hope you guys clearly know the motive behind the elimination of Google-products from iOS 6 – Yes Google’s Android and the buzz it created  !
