Disney Surprises Apple ITunes Users With Long-Awaited Quality Boost

By iwano@_84

One of the best things about the movie part of Apple iTunes is the amount of titles it carries that are available in 4K resolution and high dynamic range video. Especially as it offers these premium quality versions at no extra cost above their old HD versions.

While most film studios have long been onboard with Apple’s 4K HDR support, though, there’s been one massive hold out: Disney. For the past three years, since Apple first started offering 4K movies with the launch of the first Apple TV 4K box, all titles owned by Disney – including its library of animated classics, its Marvel movies, its Pixar movies and the Star Wars series – have only been available on iTunes in HD resolution and standard dynamic range.

Today, though, iTunes users in the US have been contacting me to say they’ve started to see a large number of Disney titles

“Companies trying to grow, trying to increase engagement and retention, can’t do that if they don’t have actionable intelligence around quality issues,” says Anthony Heckman, head of growth at unitQ.

Companies compete around a variety of vectors, he explains. In the content arena, it’s incredibly easy for companies to copy functionality that works. Snapchat grows successful and Instagram launches Live. TikTok gets big, and Instagram launches Reels. A company can compete on price, but you don’t necessarily want to be the lowest cost provider in your industry. That means product quality is key.

“We see, across the board, that category-leading companies, without question, are winning on this

By iwano@_84

The guilt I have faced when conversing with my two children whilst cooking dinner, making a mental note of what to pack in their lunchboxes and then trying to remember the conversation I had to then find out, you were in ”autopilot mode” and you didn’t actually hear what they were saying. We miss out on finding out what our children have been doing at school and their day to day antics due to digital noise.

Access to the outside world is at our fingertips and we have a voyeuristic behaviors, checking what is happening to someone on social media instead of taking time to find out how the person next to you is feeling.

Frustrated With Programmers Writing Low Quality Code? Don’t Hate the Player, Raise the Game!

By iwano@_84

Improve Code or Improve Software Developers

How often do you hear complaints about bad code? In amongst the banter is always a view that the system must be re-written. Much of that banter is about how to re-write things better this time. How to re-design the database schema. How to improve the software by stealth during the implementation of a business requirement.

Amongst the “improving” or “re-writing” banter, very little, practically nothing, is said about the coders themselves. The same teams that have gotten the software into a legacy state, want the chance to rewrite it all. To do it all properly this time round.

Insanity. Doing the Same Thing and Expecting Different Results

When programmers moan about the software quality and want to re-write it, You can’t help but wonder what has changed. Ask them, and the reply will be that they were not given enough time to code … Read More

5 Rules of Software Quality Engineering That You Must Not Miss

By iwano@_84

The digital transformation process has seen an increase in the complexity of software. This is due to the fact that a software application has to work in a multi-dimensional environment comprising of processes, devices, networks, operating systems, frameworks, servers, IDE’s, and others. Besides, each component of the environment can be further divided thereby increasing its complexity. Technology is changing at a rapid pace and each and every software built on it needs to perform at its optimum level.

Given the increase in software complexity, technology changes and the shifting dynamics of user behaviour, the quality of software or application should be top notch. To ensure the quality of software across dimensions, paradigms and disciplines, the quality assurance process needs to undergo … Read More
