Apple promotes Jony Ive to post of Chief Design Officer

May 26th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced in a memo to all employees that Sir Jony Ive has been promoted to a newly created designation of Chief Design Officer. This promotion will come into effect July 1 onwards, where he will handover managerial responsibilities of industrial design and user interface design to Richard Howarth and Alan Dye respectively.

Both Howarth and Dye have also been promoted. Howarth is now Vice President of Industrial Design while Dye is Vice President for User Interface Design. Both will continue to report to Ive and he will continue to oversee the overall direction of design at the Cupertino based company. The promotion for Ive means that he will relinquish day-to-day managerial responsibilities to Howarth and Dye.

“His new role is a reflection of the scope of work he has been doing at Apple for some time. Jony’s design responsibilities have expanded from hardware and, more recently, software UI to the look and feel of Apple retail stores, our new campus in Cupertino, product packaging and many other parts of our company,” said Tim Cook in his memo explaining the Ive’s promotion to the newly created designation.

Howarth and Dye have worked with Ive for years and have been his key lieutenants. Howarth, for instance, has been working on the iPhone from day one and has worked at Apple for two decades. Dye started working with Ive more recently after he assumed control of design of human interface in the wake of former iOS chief Scott Forstall’s ouster after the iOS 6 Apple Maps snafu. Dye worked on the dramatic redesign that Ive championed with iOS 7 and, in fact, was largely responsible for the look and feel of the OS on the Apple Watch. He joined Apple 9 years ago.

Ive is perhaps the most iconic modern industrial designer. He has his name on more than design and utility 5000 patents. Apple’s design team is also quite star-studded. Last year, Apple also added famed designer Marc Newson, who is also Ive’s friend.

Ive’s influence doesn’t just extend to the look and feel of Apple’s hardware and software, but also the furniture used inside its campus, its stores, and even the packaging of its products. He has also had a say in the design of the new SpaceShip campus that Apple is building that will be home to 13,000 employees. A recent New Yorker profile of Ive even revealed that JJ Abrams the director of the upcoming Star Wars: Force Awakens consulted him while designing the new lightsaber for the movie.

Focusky Business Presentation Software”
Today, Focusky, a private label brand in software development, reveals the significance of its free business presentation software to start-ups.
In its ongoing effort to draw attention to the effective ways required to build solid brand identity in marketplaces as far as 21st century is concerned, Focusky, a leading software development company, now reveals the top reasons why free business presentation software is ideal for every start-up today.

Following the recent introduction of its free business presentation software into the market, the management of Focusky has been making some conscious efforts to show that professional visual presentations have gone beyond the traditional PowerPoint package that has been in use for years.

While describing the new presentation application, Jason Chen, the President of Focusky, states that it would help to design and showcase unique, innovative slides, thus enabling start-ups to demonstrate to potential clients that they pay attention to changing industry trends. He then adds, saying, “The latest business presentation software can create stimulating and impressive visuals by which a typical user can show off his or her expertise in a given industry.”

According to him, Focusky business presentation software comes with several unique features that make it outperform MS PowerPoint, even to a great extent. “It offers hundreds of templates, amazing transitions, Zoom&Pan effects, multi-language support, an animation editor, an online presentation maker, a video presentation maker, amongst others. In addition, the presentation is shareable online, be it on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube,” he reveals.

“With the business presentation software, audio and video files can be embedded in any presentation. In every respect, Focusky presentation publishing and sharing platform would help start-ups to create a lasting impression on their target audience anytime, anywhere,” Jason Chen discloses while citing some of the advanced features of the web-based application.

Jason Chen also confirms that the software is available to start-ups at no cost. “In all probability, start-ups no longer have to spend fortunes on presentation software such as expensive MS PowerPoint software. The application is available for Mac and Windows users. It’s worth stating that Cloud Hosting is provided with Focusky presentation software such that users wouldn’t have to bother about finding a place to keep their files safe and secure,” he affirms.


Microsoft’s Salesforce Acquisition Talks Ended On Price Issues, says CNBC

May 25th, 2015 by Amrinder No comments »

What could have been one of the most valuable and significant tech acquisitions of current times isn’t happening anytime soon as per CNBC’s exclusive reports. The “significant talks” held in spring between Microsoft and San Fran-based cloud major Salesforce, have reached a dead end on price issues.

Talking on specific numbers, CNBC reported that Microsoft was willing to offer about $55 billion for the world’s biggest maker of online sales software but Salesforce CEO and founder Marc Benioff had expected as much as $70 billion. Both Microsoft and Salesforce declined to comment on the report.

Microsoft, although a late entrant into the cloud computing market, has lately been quite keen on expanding its presence in the booming market. And that keenness has seen aggression, ever since Satya Nadella joined office as CEO 18 months ago. Nadella made cloud computing his No. 1 priority as CEO, and had even projected that Microsoft could reach a staggering $20 Billion in cloud revenue by 2018, up from a current annualized rate of $6.3 billion, the centerpiece of growth being their cloud hosting platform Azure as well as the Office 365 software suit.

In fact, in order to lure more enterprise and developer customers towards its platforms, Microsoft announced a slew of new, Azure-targeted features in its recently concluded Build Conference.

Salesforce which was founded in 1999 by former Oracle executive Marc Benioff and valued at $48.4 billion at present, had reported $1.51 billion in revenue for its fiscal first quarter this week, and forecast sales for the full year could be as high as $6.55 billion making it the most successful purely cloud-based application company in the industry and hence an ideal fit for Microsoft given its cloud computing stints.

Salesforce is also considered a pioneer of customer relationship management, or CRM in the cloud, which companies use to help manage their sales efforts and currently leads the global customer relationship management (CRM) market, which is valued at $23 billion annually, according to tech research firm Gartner.

Salesforce provides its services online, with no software directly installed on PCs, making the company attractive to technology giants such as Oracle and Microsoft, who have been late entrants into the fast-growing cloud computing market.

Rumors of acquisition talks between the two companies first surfaced last month when Bloomberg reported on an approach of an unnamed suitor that was not Microsoft, for Salesforce. Bloomberg also reported earlier this month that Microsoft was evaluating a bid for Salesforce, but said no talks between the two companies were taking place. The deal envisioned Microsoft using a significant portion of its $95 billion cash pile to pay for Salesforce.

However, the talks are not expected to re-emerge anytime soon. In addition to a disparity in price expectations, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella was said to be somewhat reluctant to pull the trigger on a deal of such size and consequence for his company.

A Microsoft-Salesforce deal would have been among the largest tech acquisitions ever, and Microsoft’s largest ever following its 2011 purchase of video-calling company Skype for $8.5 billion. Under former CEO Steve Ballmer, Microsoft tried and failed to acquire Yahoo in 2008 for $45 billion.

The honor of the biggest tech acquisition in history belongs to the AOL-Time Warner merger announced in 2000. The original purchase price was for $162 billion, but AOL’s declining share price capped the deal at $106 billion when it was completed in 2001.
