Apple has been running an ad campaign for the iPhone 7 all summer, the latest is a video featuring Siri’s interactions with actor Dwayne Johnson. From Apple’s YouTube channel: “You should never, ever, under any circumstances, underestimate how much Dwayne Johnson can get done in a day with Siri. Follow the world’s busiest actor and Siri as they dominate the day.”
As Delawareans, we are proud of our state’s long-running history with Dover AFB, home of the 436th Airlift Wing. In 1947, President Truman signed the National Security Act which established the Department of Defense, and along with it, the creation of the US Air Force as an independent service. The official birthday of the US Air Force is 18 September 1947. Happy Birthday to the USAF!

As a member of Technology Forum of Delaware, Davis Jefferson attended an event, back in November, at University of Delaware's College of Health Sciences. The venue was a shiny new building at the site of the former Chrysler plant in Newark DE, now known as the STAR Campus (STAR = science, technology, and advanced research). The topic of event was 3-D Printing in Action. Attendees learned “how 3-D printing is feeding the demand for rapid prototyping and mass customization across industries including medicine, automotive, technology, and more.” Davis previewed the event and shot some video for Jefferson Consulting’s YouTube channel:
The Apple Watch is not expected until “early 2015,” which typically translates to “sometime before June.” A recent Cult of Mac article, Apple Watch wins the wrist war before it starts, refers to the lackluster appearance of smart watches at CES, compared with what is expected of the Apple Watch. Of course, this inspired us to take another look at the product presentation by Jony Ive, Senior Vice President of Design at Apple. What do you think of this up-coming device. Will you buy one? Will you wear one?

Then, a stray synapse fired, and I had a flashback to my high school days: a Navy recruiter, in a bid to convince me and my buddies that he was offering not just a job but an adventure, showed us a video of good ol' Cap'n Kirk presenting the advanced technology of our submarine fleet. I'm still trying to find that one on YouTube!
The AT&T/Bell Labs video discussing the implications of the microprocessor runs about 14 minutes. A subtle PR video in 1976 (slightly revised in 1980), it's entertaining today but has a certain educational value, as well. ~ Davis ---- Editor’s note 10.3.2014: since the original post in March 2011, some of the above links no longer work, but the AT&T Tech Channel is also on YouTube. Gotta love those sound effects!
