Apple To Investors: OK, OK, We’ll Show You The Money

first_imgIf you listen to a rising chorus of Apple investors, it seems increasingly clear that Cupertino will soon dance a Wall Street jig and offer either a share-buyback plan or a higher dividend. Either of which would help support the share price, even if neither move seems likely to restore much of the 40% haircut the stock has taken since September.Yesterday, Bloomberg quoted fund managers at Gamco and Capital Advisors, both of which own Apple shares, saying they expect the company to announce new plans for deploying more of its $137 billion cash hoard in support of investors. Today, Quartz reported that Apple might buy back stock, hike the regular dividend or issue a special dividend as early as this spring, and has retained Goldman Sachs to review its options.The loudest such investor in recent months, of course, has been David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital. In February, Einhorn proposed that Apple begin issuing what he called “iPrefs” — preferred shares that would pay a guaranteed dividend of 4%. Earlier that month, Einhorn had filed suit against Apple to block a proxy measure that would have complicated the issuance of preferred stock — an apparent slap at his plan.Einhorn’s lawsuit got people a bit riled up, leading Apple CEO Tim Cook to call it “a waste of money for all involved” and “a silly sideshow” — which slapped the word “silly” all over Einhorn’s advocacy plan for news cycles to come. Quartz’s unnamed sources, however, claim Apple actually found the idea “interesting,” and Einhorn apparently got what he wanted when Apple dropped its proxy measure on the order of a federal judge. In turn, Einhorn dropped his lawsuit against Apple shortly thereafter.Any formal announcement on cash-to-investors front could come in tandem with a product announcement, though it’s unclear whether a spring announcement might involve an iPhone 5S, an iPad mini revamp, or both.Hedge fund drama aside, Apple has been increasingly public about its plans to spread its mounting wealth, including an initiative to return $45 billion to shareholders over three years. “As of next week we will have executed $10 billion of that plan,” the company announced last month. Einhorn’s suit didn’t plant this seed, but it certainly seems to have accelerated its growth.Lead image courtesy of user 1000 Words at Shutterstock Tags:#Apple#Finance What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img nick statt Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

What are the unique requirements of public VR?

first_imgSmall Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Tags:#Internet of Things#IoT#public VR#virtual reality#VR Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img Yuval Boger A good treadmill for home use costs around $1,000. A treadmill for use in a health club could be ten times more expensive. Why would club owners agree to pay so much more? Because they understand that the home equipment would not withstand the heavy use in a club.The same is true for VR goggles. Goggles for home use are not suitable for sustained use in arcades and amusement parks. Both VR vendors and attraction operators need to understand and address these differences.Durability is one key issue. A goggle in an amusement park is subject to both accidental and intentional abuse. A kid might try to see if a lens can pop out. Someone else might wish to take a component as a souvenir.See also: How VR training apps are becoming realityHygiene is also important. VR experiences can be intense, and parks can be in hot and humid areas. Whether it is sweat, suntan lotion or something else, a guest does not wish to wear a soaked or dirty goggle. This is true not only for the face mask, but for any built-in headphones.Sweat and humidity might also cause fogging on the lenses. If a guest has to take off the goggles to defog them, the break in VR immersion degrades the experience.Depending on the attraction, visitors can be of all ages. Good physical fit is important, regardless if the visitor is a small kit or a large man. Goggles must accommodate a wide range of head sizes, and eye separation. Eyeglasses also present a design challenge. Visitors prefer to keep them on, so goggle vendors try to make room for them.Beyond the customer-facing experience, there are important operational considerations. Attractions make money by providing a unique experience to a large number of visitors. Every minute spent by a guest adjusting straps in a roller-coaster, is a minute lost. Some have reported a 30% decrease in guest throughput after upgrading a roller coaster to VR. A larger park crew assisting guests or maintaining headsets means larger operational costs.There are several different types of public VR experiences, each with unique challenge. A free-roam experience (e.g. Zero Latency) needs to address backpack PCs and controllers. Themed experiences such as The Void have accessories that supplant the story. These accessories have many of the same challenges. A small attraction in a shopping mall cannot afford a large operating crew. A VR roller coaster might need a chin strap to keep the goggles on the head. If a VR roller coaster relies on standard phones, they might overheat or need to recharge often.Often, the first instinct of those building VR attractions is to do everything. They might try to build their own goggles, create content, or even a tracking system. Over time, they focus on their core competencies, bringing external vendors for everything else.Testing is a work in progressThe first generation of these solutions show the immense promise of public VR.VR Coaster, for instance, has deployed GearVR-based roller coaster experiences in over 20 parks. These use a special tracking system to determine the position of each car at any time. The Void and Zero Latency use backpack PCs to allow guests to explore unique spaces. Talon Simulations provides flight and driving simulations in malls. IMAX opened a VR center where guests can try a variety of 10-minute VR experiences. Most of these first-generation solutions use consumer-grade hardware.Operators realize that many problems still need solutions. At the same time, consumers learn what they like and dislike in current solutions.HMD vendors are also rising to the challenge. ImmersiON-VRelia has developed phone-based goggles that feature a reinforced plastic construction. Sensics released goggles with detachable face mask to address both hygiene and operational efficiency.What’s missing? Low-latency wireless video solutions to get rid of cables. Faster ways to adjust goggles for guest. Better methods to clean goggles between guests. Phones that don’t overheat. Multi-user experiences with a stronger social aspect. The passage of time to see what works and what doesn’t. VR standards to help integrate new devices into compelling experiences.I am excited what public VR experiences could be. My excitement comes both from a user standpoint – these experiences are fun! – and also from a problem-solver view – the problems are challenging.Try these experiences next time you can. Going to a movie theater provides a different experience than watching at home. Going through a good public VR experience is beyond what VR at home provides.This article is part of our Virtual Reality series.
