Editorial #122: Apple's Announcement-What Does it Mean for Us? More Choices!

Let’s look at the Apple product line:

  • iPod
  • iPhone
  • Mac (Macbook, Air Mac, iMac)
  • iPad (iPad, iPad mini)

All of these products have video! All have cameras in front of the devices! (This is true for the newest Apple devices–some of the older devices do not have a front-facing camera so be sure to check before you buy!)

A little more explanation is necessary. Only the iPhone and the iPad has 3G/4G/4G LTE which means you can use video to communicate when you are out of the house or office.

The iPod and the Mac’s do not have 3G/4G/4G LTE, which means you use wifi inside your home or office.

The iPod, iPhone and the iPad mini-you can hold in your hand.

The Macs laptops and the iPad-you can move around the house and office with those.

Only the iMac will need to stay at your desk.

The point here–you have FULL video communication capability, wherever you are with the Apple product line!

One word of caution: 3G/4G/4G LTE have monthly data caps–which limit you to 3-4 hours of video per month. So for those devices, if you are in a wifi evnironment, be sure to switch to wifi as wifi does not have monthly data caps.

Dr. Z is thrilled with more choices!!!

By the way, the forthcoming Z5 will run on all of the above devices–it’s in the final stages of beta testing. Stay tuned!

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.
