The Raspberry microphone is by Blue Microphones. The name Blue may sound familiar. The company also makes a whole of microphones, including the Yeti Microphone, which I have used quite often for podcasts.
I purchased the Raspberry because I wanted a mic that was multi-purpose - that is, a mic that I could use with my Mac as well as my iOS devices. The photo above shows you what the packaging looks like. It comes with sectional compartments and a firm cardboard box with high gloss photography on the surface. In terms of the specs, the Raspberry comes with the patented Blue premium capsule circuitry, Internal Acoustic Diffuser, to focus on your voice and remove ambient noise, and 24-bit/48kHz resolution for great sound. The knobs on the side allow you to control the volume level for microphones and headphones, respectively, and includes a port for USB and Lightening cables which come with the Mic. Raspberry also comes with a portable micro stand, a 5/8 inch microphone stand adapter, and soft-suede carry pouch. (read more)
App Subscription Model: Who Benefits
In 2016 during the days leading up to WWDC, Phil Schiller, Vice President of World Wide Marketing at Apple, introduced a new subscription model for developers. Under the new plan, developers were to receive 70 percent of revenue and 30 percent went to Apple. If customers remained faithful subscribers for one year, the share of the revenue changed to 85 percent for developers and 15 percent for Apple. This model still exists, but with some updated guidelines for pricing and other regulatory measures.
