Why the iPhone 6—not the iWatch—is Apple’s biggest launch this year While new gadget categories—such as the supposedly forthcoming “iWatch”—could fetch Apple plenty of attention this year, and take some pressure off CEO Tim Cook, the bulk of its growth is more likely to come from a familiar source: The iPhone, which will be 7 years old this weekend. For some perspective on this, former Apple executive Jean-Louis Gassée wrote this week, “The most ambitious rumors project 50 million iWatches sold in the first 12 months. I think that’s an unrealistic estimate, but if a $300 iWatch can sell at these numbers, that’s $15B for the year. This seems like a huge number until you compare it to a conservative estimate for the iPhone: 50 million iPhones at $650 generates $32B per quarter.” Over the past several years, the iPhone has generated more than half of Apple’s revenue and likely more of its profits. The iPhone also drives a disproportionate amount of Apple’s growth.
WORLD GRAMMAR (Book editorial project, planetary project, 2004 – , collaboration with Ricardo Almendros and Manuel Torres) World Grammar is an objectionary, that is to say, a global dictionary of objects. The cultural differencees between countries and cities in the world are often shown through their languages, gastronomies, musics or ways of dressing. Thus the large imaginary of everyday-life objects that accompanies our lives seems to be consigned to a background, almost anecdotal, level. World Grammar salvages these peculiar, ingenious, useful objects and gives them notoriety. By isolating these objects from their context and ordering them under unifying criteria, the cultural differences amongst the societies to which they belong start to emerge.

Cybertrolls' attacks on Web add to mourners' pain The word itself conjures up images of grisly, mythical creatures living under bridges. But in the cyberworld, trolls are very real people who disrupt Web forums — and among the most sinister are those who deface memorial pages dedicated to youngsters who died under violent circumstances. These trolls bombard tribute pages on the Web with hateful messages to a dead youth's grieving family and friends, post pornographic pictures and upload graphic crime-scene photos of bloody corpses.
