What happened to the cooperation between Apple and Samsung? What made the former “enemies” shake hands and make peace?
What’s the specific reason? According to CNBC, on January 7, Apple and Samsung announced their cooperation before the start of CES in Las
Vegas. Soon, Samsung smart TV users will be able to access iTunes movies and TV content.
Airplay 2 will also support iPhone and iPad users to send content from their phones to televisions.
It’s the first time Apple’s iTunes has been built into third-party devices.
Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Apple’s Internet Software and Services, announced the
partnership: “We look forward to getting more users around the world to adopt it.
Samsung smart TV experience iTunes and AirPlay 2, and iPhone, iPad and Mac users have another
way to enjoy playing their favorite content on the big screen at home. As we all know, Apple and Samsung fought in court for many years.
There are also many patent wars between the two sides. From hurting each other to working together, what is Apple’s intention? Industry
insiders believe that with the decline in sales of Apple’s devices such as the iPhone, Apple can only turn to software services, diluting the hardware priority strategy.
It can be predicted that Apple will not launch smart TV and other hardware devices in the past two
years, but focus on the development of services, including video streaming services. So working with Samsung is good for Apple.
On May 26, 2018, the Ninth China (Yongkang) International Door Exposition opened in Yongkang, Zhejiang Province, which has a good reputation as “China’s Door Capital”.
Every door exposition, there are often master unlockers to “kick the pavilion”. According to the industry Hunjia, this is indeed a latent side
of the industry, such as Zhang Hongjun, a locksmith circle known
as “Ghost Horse Great Master”, who is a frequent visitor at the Millennium Gate Expo.
Because it’s normal, on the first day of the Expo, a young woman named Wang Haili preached “your
smart lock, I can open it in three seconds” to each booth, and everyone didn’t care.
According to Yehun’s family in advance, everyone didn’t care at the end of the year, because the former “kicking hall”, both sides have a heart to understand the “end of the river and lake”-
There is no lock that can’t be unlocked in the world. It’s just the result of time. If the locksmith can’t embarrass you when the lock is broken,
he will pay you a consultation fee. For businesses, this is not a bad thing, mutual promotion and mutual progress, are big joy.
But the next operation of Wang Haili, so that many smart lock merchants limb movement cold!
Wang Haili took out a small plastic black box from her bag.
It’s a little smaller than a cell phone, but twice thicker. A copper coil flashes on the top of the box.
This is the small black box that is pouring into the Expo at the moment.
There are only two buttons on the black box: the power button at the bottom and the trigger switch at the front.
Cut the copper coil of the black box close to the intelligent lock and walk around in the wrong position of the lock body. At the same time, press
the trigger button, and follow the sound of motor migration in the lock body, the intelligent lock with fingerprint and secret code was opened!
Everyone can’t sit down at the end of New Year’s Eve…
Wang Haili, on the other hand, said that the whole process was astonishingly easy: there was no time-consuming violence to unlock
the locks, and no need for sophisticated and high-end skills to crack. The small black box was like an access card, with a brush in the air and a big opening in the door.
Wang Haili brushed the intelligent locks of eight brands on the spot. The fastest one really took only 3 seconds!
It’s no exaggeration to say that the smart locks have never been so miserable since they kicked the hidden end of the hall.
As more and more people gathered around, many people took out their mobile phones and fixed them in the middle on Wang Haili and her small black box.
