Yes, there are problems rolling out the 5G infrastructure but President Trump, who knows technology better than anyone, thinks Apple can help deploy 5G. How? First, Apple could re-hire Sir Jony Ive. Second, make 5G in Ive’s image.
Money. Tech. Vision
Despite the president’s problem with the newer iPhone’s Face ID (vs. Touch ID), President Trump seems to love Apple’s capabilities. It’s a bromance of sorts. The White House phone number must be on CEO Tim Cook’s speed dial.
What does the president think of Apple?
Sure, Apple could get involved in building 5G in the U.S. Apple could pay for it.
Maybe the best way is to bring former chief design honcho Jony Ive out of retirement so he could put his personal stamp on Apple’s 5G plans.
I’m thinking that Ive would change the money, technology, and vision thing and turn it into thinner, lighter, and faster 5G network for future iPhone customers. Since Apple does not have much to do with 5G anyway, Tim Cook could honor Trump’s request with a single phone call.
Buy Huawei. Ericsson, Nokia, and others dominate 5G equipment necessary for a successful rollout– and Huawei is not liked in the U.S.– but if Apple owned Huawei then Trump would be happy. That would make Apple the only U.S. company involved in rolling out 5G.
Jony Ive would make 5G in the U.S. the prettiest 5G in the world.
- The thing is, it’s very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better.
- There is beauty when something works and it works intuitively.
- The memory of how we work will endure beyond the products of our work.
- It’s a way that you demonstrate that you care for the people that you are making these products for. I think we see ourselves as having a civic responsibility to do that. It’s important. It’s right. It’s very hard to explain why.
- We try to develop products that seem somehow inevitable. That leave you with the sense that that’s the only possible solution that makes sense.
- When something exceeds your ability to understand how it works, it sort of becomes magical.
- Today I opened a major Apple Manufacturing plant in Texas that will bring high paying jobs back to America.
- No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.
- We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
Wait. Didn’t Apple open that plant in 2013?
How did it become a major manufacturing plant if it makes the computer Apple will sell the least? Just asking. Are there not workers and jobs there now? So little time, such an inquiring mind.
Apple struggles to make software less buggy. The company’s recent products are mere accessories for the iPhone. There’s still no Mac Pro or Apple Car. And we want Apple to take care of the 5G problem?
