Today's topics include how Apple IPhone 6s smartphones are getting double the RAM of their predecessors, Apple drops its HopStop Transit App, Salesforce promises ‘smarter selling’ with SalesforceIQ, and Brocade launches its latest Open SDN controller.

Apple's new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones will each apparently have 2GB of RAM when they are available for sale on Sept. 25. This is twice the 1GB of memory included in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.

The increased RAM, which certainly will contribute to the increased performance claims for the new phones, was revealed by an iOS developer.

He said he found the information in Apple's documentation using the company's Xcode developer tools, according to a Sept. 14 report by BGR.com.

Apple is shutting down the HopStop public transit and mapping app that it bought in 2013 as it moves to integrate transit and mapping services for customers in iOS 9, which the company will release Sept. 16.

Apple's move to drop HopStop was reported Sept. 12 by Fortune, which attributed the move to Apple's desire to give users ready access to its own mapping services as they are released in the future on iOS devices.

The iPhone and iPad apps for the service are no longer available in the App Store. HopStop services are available in some 300 cities around the world.

Salesforce.com is spinning out two new sales prospect tracking services called SalesforceIQ for Small Business and SalesforceIQ for Sales Cloud. Both are designed to provide data-driven insights and suggested next steps for busy sales representatives.

The services, based on data analysis technology that Salesforce acquired with the July 2014 buyout of RelateIQ, analyze information in the ever-growing stores of customer and sales prospect data to help representatives close new deals.

Brocade is expanding its network virtualization portfolio with the latest version of its software-defined network controller, which is based on the new open-source Lithium release from the OpenDaylight Project.

Brocade SDN Controller 2.0 offers a range of new features to help organizations more easily scale and manage their data center infrastructure. At the same time, the company also rolled out two new SDN applications that will give customers better visibility into their networks.
