iPhone Celebrates 14th Anniversary

14 years ago (January 9,2007), the late Steve Jobs unveiled the first ever iPhone to the world. The iPhone OS 1 was introduced to the market as “an iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet communications device”, according to tech blog MacRumours. It, however, did not retail until June of that year.

The 3.5-inch device featured a visual voicemail, 2G internet connectivity, a 2-megapixel camera, multi-touch gestures, HTML email, Apple’s Safari web browser, threaded text messaging, an “iPod” music and video player app, and a dedicated YouTube and Maps app – powered by Google Maps.

Fast forward to 2021, the iPhone has continued to be a game changer, revolutionizing the smartphone industry and in turn becoming the most popular brand globally. Apple recently launched its first 5G iPhone – the iPhone 12, with additional products including the Apple Watch, HomePod and AirPods.

‘Losing Alice’ Trailer Released

Apple TV+ has released the official trailer for their upcoming series “Losing Alice”. Starring Ayelet Zurer, the eight-episode drama follows Alice, a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success.

Through the prism of this female faust, the series explores issues such as jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships women have among themselves and each other. But above all, “Losing Alice”, described as a “thrilling cinematic journey that uses flashbacks and flash-forwards in a satisfyingly complex narrative”, is a love letter for the still-too-rare female director.

“Losing Alice” debuts on the streaming platform January 22nd. Check out the official trailer and poster below.
