2011 holds the new iPhone in San Francisco California on January 9 2007 Apple iPhone went on sale on June 29 2007 (Source: Reuters) Related News By Tyler Cowen/Bloomberg Ten years after the introduction of Apple Inc’s iPhone and the broader category of smartphones it’s worth stepping back to see what we have learned As with most major technological innovations it’s brought a number of collateral surprises about the rest of our world First we’ve learned that even in this age of bits and bytes materials innovation still matters The iPhone is behind the scenes a triumph of mining science with a wide variety of raw materials and about 34 billion kilograms (75 billion pounds) of mined rock as an input to date as discussed by Brian Merchant in his new and excellent book “The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone” A single iPhone has behind it the production of 34 kilos of gold ore with 205 grams (072 ounces) of cyanide used to extract the most valuable parts of the gold Especially impressive as a material is the smooth touch-screen and the user’s ability to make things happen by sliding swiping zooming and pinching it — the “multitouch” function That advance relied upon particular materials as the screen is chemically strengthened made scrape-resistant and embedded with sensitive sensors Multitouch wasn’t new but Apple understood how to build it into a highly useful product I am notoriously bad with gadgets and even my microwave oven confuses me But I more or less figured out all the essential operations of an iPhone the very first day I got it Without an instruction manual Wasn’t it bold of Apple to sell it that way The iPhone also shows that China is a major innovator and has been for some time Don’t be fooled by the common take that the US did all the creative design and concept work and the factories of southern China simply perform assembly and lay on the finishing touches The iPhone is possible only because China brought speed and scale to the production process in an unprecedented way One of its innovations was building a technological and labor-market ecosystem where so many talented and hardworking engineers can be hired so quickly If you don’t think that’s a major and novel accomplishment try doing it in some other country For me the most depressing lesson of the iPhone is that most people don’t care about the quality of their cultural inputs as much as I used to think They do however care greatly about sharing culture with their friends (and strangers) and they value the convenience of consuming their culture arguably to the point of addiction A few decades ago who would have thought that the world’s major technological innovation would lower the average sound quality of the music people listen to Yet that has been the result of smartphones and plenty of listeners don’t even use earbuds People don’t seem to mind the quality because their phones make listening to music much more convenient You can also share music more easily with friends say by building a Spotify list or putting a song on your Facebook page How about watching a movie on a small (or some would say tiny) iPhone screen A whole generation seems to think that’s fine or maybe preferable And to think I used to complain that even a large television couldn’t do justice to the works of such magisterial directors as Ingmar Bergman Andrei Tarkovsky and Francis Ford Coppola That now sounds like the rantings of an out of touch bitter old man And so many people read not only bestsellers but also literary classics on their iPhone screens perhaps while riding the subway No matter how you use your iPhone waiting around just isn’t that bad any more The day the iPhone came out June 29 2007 I boasted to my wife that it would be one of the most important cultural events of our lifetimes maybe the most important I compared my purchase of one which I wanted to justify to going to see a “Don Giovanni” premiere in 1787 Perhaps I was right in my broader assessment but I hadn’t realized that so many users would opt for a rather extreme bundle of convenience sharing abilities and product quality degradations Finally names can be deceiving The iPhone isn’t fundamentally a phone even though Steve Jobs himself thought that phone service was the killer app for the product Instead it’s an all-purpose communications device music player recorder camera map adviser software distributor and dating-enabler rolled into one When Siri gets better it will be a companion too As iPhones and other smartphones became more widespread the number of phone calls I received declined No other device has done more to make the phone less necessary I’ll get your text or email right away Maybe that’s what I like about it most of all For all

representational purpose Top News BUREAUCRATS in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) find themselves divided over the Shiv Sena’s proposal of waiving property tax for residential properties measuring up to 500 square feet and giving a 60 per cent concession in assessment for flats measuring between 500 square feet and 700 square feet a move recently approved in the general body meeting on July 6 Even though the proposal has the support of all political parties it will need the civic administration’s response before the state government can take a decision on it Civic officials pointed out that while the majority of the city’s taxpayers fall within the category of properties measuring up to 500 square feet the taxes collected from them comprise a small percentage of the total revenue generated by property tax “There are about 15 lakh houses which may be entitled for a complete exemption from property tax and the funds collected from them amounts to around Rs 350 crore Even though the amount is not big in comparison to the total revenue of Rs 5100 crore generated by property tax with Octroi gone it would definitely be a loss of revenue for BMC” said an official from the Assessment and Collection department Apart from the concern over losing a portion of its revenue senior civic officials said that the pros and cons of the proposal have to be weighed before the civic administration takes a stand “About 90 per cent of the people paying property taxes fall in the category of properties upto 500 square feet Many of them live in slum structures or cessed buildings and are currently not paying any taxes By not implementing this proposal we are taking away the incentive from them to move out of dilapidated buildings and opting for re-development” said the official On the other hand the senior official pointed out that implementation of such a proposal will create an unequal burden on the smaller percentage of people who own properties measuring more than 700 square feet “Despite being a secular tax by removing 90 per cent of the taxpayers we will be generating the revenue by burdening the remaining 10 per cent of the city’s population Citizens are entitled to services since they pay taxes But with this rule people who are not paying taxes will continue to reap the benefits which is unfair” said the official He added that a decision will be taken after conducting a risk assessment including the financial implications of the proposal Political parties however expressed their support for the proposal and argued that the loss of Rs 350 crore will have no impact on the civic body’s revenue while the exemption would bring relief to the poor in the city Referring to the fixed deposits of the country’s richest civic body Leader of Opposition and Congress corporator Ravi Raja said “The BMC has deposits worth Rs 65000 crore in the bank and gets an interest of around Rs 4500 crore As the richest civic body it can give some relief to the middle-class people of the city” he said He added that Congress will also oppose the long-pending proposal of imposing property tax on slums on similar grounds Standing by the party’s stand leader of the house and Sena corporator Yashwant Jadhav said “The property tax waiver comprises a small portion of the taxes and will not affect the revenue much since majority of the taxes come from owners of larger properties who can afford the amount The BMC can easily recover the cost by increasing the taxes for the commercial sector at a later stage” he said The party had made the promise to waive the property tax before the civic elections held earlier this year Referring to possible misuse of the proposal when implemented MNS corporator and group leader Dilip Lande said “There may be a small percentage of people who will try to misuse the exemption But the BMC needs to be strict about allowing people to join multiple flats They shouldn’t allow people to break the walls when they come to ask for permission” The proposal passed by the general body has been sent to the municipal commissioner and the civic administration’s suggestions The proposal would be deliberated yet again in the general body meeting After a mutual agreement the proposal will be sent to the state government and the Urban Development department will eventually take a decision on the matter For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: March 25 2015 12:00 am Related News A cartoonist a university professor two young women a businessman a writer and a couple of Air India employees — they were victims all of Section 66A of the Information Technology (Amendment) Act 2008 which the Supreme Court has held to be unconstitutional In an eloquent and far-reaching judgment the court emphasised that the “liberty of thought and expression” is a “cardinal value” of “paramount significance” in any democracy It affirmed the role of unpopular opinions in a “culture of open dialogue” and in the “marketplace of ideas” pointing out that “what may be offensive to one may not be offensive to another” It criticised Section 66A as vague and “nebulous in meaning” and acknowledged the ways in which the provision has been misused and wielded as a weapon against those who took to social media to express political dissent It dismissed the Central government’s assurance that it would be less whimsical in the way in which it employed the section noting that “governments may come and governments may go but Section 66A goes on forever” Once again India’s apex court has reaffirmed its role as the guardian of individual liberty against arbitrary and whimsical state action and as protector particularly of that most fundamental of rights — of free speech and expression It was the Supreme Court that read the freedom of the press into Article 19(1) of the Constitution Now by pointing out that Section 66A fails the “reasonableness” test for restrictions permitted under Article 19(2) of the Constitution by making crucial distinctions — such as between discussion advocacy and incitement — and by requiring that any restriction imposed by the state be defined precisely to ensure that ambiguity does not chill free speech the court upholds a fine tradition Section 66A is a telling example of legislation shoddily drafted and passed without debate essentially to serve the powerful Its flaws were evident from the time it became law after the amendment bill to the IT Act was hurriedly passed by Parliament in the tense aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai 2008 But it served as a convenient weapon in the hands of thin-skinned politicians and overreaching policemen If the UPA in government championed its
