Can you believe it’s almost 2013? A lot has happened in the world of technology in the past 12 months, and most of it can be traced back to these 13 people.

For iPhone and iPad owners, however, there will soon be yet another way: Apple is calling it Clips.The company announced the new app on Tuesday, and has pitched it as a fun way to craft great-looking video “without timelines, tracks, or complicated editing tools.” Users will be able to stitch together video clips and photos already on their device, or record new media with a bevy of real-time filters. The app offers a selection of soundtracks, too, as well as the ability to overlay your creations with emojis, stickers, and text to your heart’s content.All of that is really par for the course when it comes to social-minded video and photo apps, but what really sets Clips apart is a feature Apple has dubbed Live Titles. Users can adorn their videos with animated title cards or captions just … [Read more...] about Apple’s new Clips app is taking the fight to Instagram and Snapchat

Apple’s quarter came in well ahead of expectations on strong overall revenues and iPhone sales. With the company forecasting modestly higher earnings in the coming quarter and expectations that the iPhone 6 could be a blockbuster come September, Apple’s stock soared to levels not seen since the end of last year. Still, CEO Tim Cook thinks the company’s shares are cheap. In announcing Apple will pump an additional $30 billion into a repurchase program, Cook said: “We believe our current stock price does not reflect the full value of the company.” A deeper dive into Apple’s numbers suggests Cook’s beliefs could be reasonable, but there are still important questions facing the company down the road. Here’s a look at some of them:Can anything be done about the iPad problem? Cook explained that while iPad sales were down significantly versus last year, the situation wasn’t as bad as it seems.
