Amazon Instant Video app could hit Apple TV 'within a few weeks'

A new app will be great, though I’m currently enjoying the native AirPlay support combined with X-Ray.  My iPhone 6S Plus serves nicely as a 2nd screen with the X-Ray info instead of covering the media playing on the TV screen as it does when the app is on the streaming box itself.

Australian banks accused of anti-competitive behavior over Apple Pay lockout

True, but I’m more interested in your “Wrong and totally ignores the ...” which tells me absolutely nothing; where is the conflict of interest in these banks not wanting to pay Apple a fee? You Apple fanboys and shills are the ones that are truly pathetic; see…
What’s the point of Apple Pay? In the US, only ~5% of those Apple users, that have had the opportunity to use Apple Pay, have been interested enough to do so—LOL ...
PS: I comment on all articles about payments especially the nonsensical ones that come out of disingenuous marketing departments ...

Australian banks accused of anti-competitive behavior over Apple Pay lockout

Wrong and totally ignores the huge conflict of interest present for these banks.
You seem to run around the internet looking for articles where you can criticize Apple and then you post the same comment in multiple places. I looked at your history. At times you have pasted the same comment on three or four different sites. You only do it when you go after Apple. Solid criticism is welcome, but your personal vendetta with Apple is pathetic. You are very transparent.

Australian banks accused of anti-competitive behavior over Apple Pay lockout

Samsung and Google are acceptable to the banks because they aren’t asking for a cut of the banks’ fee; indeed, rather than the banks pay Apple a fee, Apple should pay the banks a fee for the right to use the banks’ payment system to promote their iPhone product ...

Some Apple Music and iTunes Match services may be illegal in the U.K.

No, these services would NOT be illegal, because the copyright holders have EXPLICITLY agreed to permit you to do these things, as part of permitting Apple to offer these services.
Apple Match isn’t just covered by ‘fair use’, Apple had to come to an agreement with the music labels to actually offer this service [for which the labels get paid].

Apple Music: Iovine apologizes for remarks about women; Adele won't stream new album

Apologizing every time someone gets their panties in a twist only encourages the professionally insulted morons to continue their P.C. bullying.
(Anyone offended by my use of the term “panties” can just get over it).
I watched the segment in question, and cannot imagine why anyone would be offended by anything he had to say.

iPad Pro available in some US Apple Stores today

While we haven’t seen any actually in stores yet, some stores have told us that they expect that they might have some in stock as soon as Friday, so it definitely seems likely that they’re going to be in retail before they’re available online. It’s possible with pre-orders that they’ve merely sold out already, or that Apple has been pushing more of its stock into its retail stores.

iPad Pro available in some US Apple Stores today

Can anyone confirm whether the Pencil or Keyboard are available at the stores? or does everyone (in store or online customers) have to wait for these accessories?

Judge throws out employee bag check lawsuit against Apple

The judge got it right. Name some other employer who lets you walk in and out with a backpack or shopping bag that can conceal the employer’s stuff that you are stealing without subjecting you to a search that takes about 5 seconds.

Apple trains Siri on Apple TV for country-specific pronunciation

Country specific? Apple obviously hasn’t visited our tiny island called the UK where pronounciations can differ so wildly in a radius of a 100 miles that it sounds like a different language

Apple TV: Plex now available, Top Charts come to App Store

The Plex app works well, but SRT subtitles are broken in the 1st release (they work fine in SimpleX for those who have it).

Amazon to make call on Prime Video support on new Apple TV

For just shear large access to Amazon and it’s services, Amazon will have to make apps for the Apple TV.
Other shopping apps are popping up, and it only makes sense they do one too.  Yes, I can use airplay mirroring from my phone (and do), but to have a direct Amazon app on Apple TV to see and check orders quickly with my wife….being able to update a weekly Prime Now grocery list and order….or just being able to shop with my wife after 9pm for the kids christmas presents) is a no brainer.
A Prime Video App makes even more sense.  With the ability to be included on universal search, you are telling me Amazon wants all it’s customers to just use Netflex, Hulu, or HBO when they are on their Apple TV’s.  They need to just swallow their pride and understand a large number (if not a large a majority of prime members use apple iOS devices, and they will use Apple TV at the very minimum to utilize Airplay, and now certainly more with apps)....
Amazon gets to feature their content more directly on their fire tv devices, and they need to know Apple will do it on theirs too, respectively…that said, Apple clearly shows me when I can see something “free” under one of my other streaming subscriptions vs having to rent or purchase directly from them…they are being transparent…
And when Amazon sees what people experience when they first get their new Apple TV’s they will clearly see that you still have to “install” every other streaming app too just as equally.

Apple using new AAE sidecar format for iOS 8 photos?

I am having the same issue as Deborah, there are only AAE files instead of the JPG file. There is not JPG file to be found. Please tell me how i may find the JPG files? I lost about 700+ photos this way.

Amazon to make call on Prime Video support on new Apple TV

If Amazon cares about being a top content provider, why wouldn’t they want to be on all major delivery platforms? They are on iOS so I really can’t understand this.

Amazon to make call on Prime Video support on new Apple TV

I don’t blame Amazon for being afraid.  A couple hours into my new AppleTV and… OMG… there is no other streaming box in existence ;-)  Having spent a week each with the FireTV2 and Roku4—from the UI to the remote controls, they both seem like abacuses in comparison.
The granular control provided by the touchpad on the remote gizmo has now made it impossible for me to be OK with any other.  Try zipping ahead only 30 seconds in Hulu on the Roku4—doesn’t work so well.  ‘What did he say’ works in other apps besides iTunes;  Hulu, Netflix, and Showtime all comply.
Streaming Plex and Amazon Instant Video via AirPlay from my iPhone 6S+ works flawlessly, both providing crystal clear HD picture quality—Plex appearing slightly better with 1080 media than Amazon.  Both respond to commands like ‘skip ahead/back 30 seconds’.  What-did-he-say zips both back 15 seconds, but the subtitles don’t turn on.  You can however manually turn on subtitles for both apps by swiping down on the touchpad and selecting the option.  Having not used AirPlay or AppleTV before, santa has come early this year.

Apple TV: Unboxing + comparison gallery

Thanks.  I knew it was coming, thought it might be there.  There’s another one, a 3rd party app called Simplex that was thought to be available for launch—today’s Plex Media Server update provides full compatibility for it—but it’s not present either.  What I hadn’t realized was that the iOS app offers native AirPlay functionality—which will more than suffice until the ATV app is released.
Found an iMore video posted today that scrolls through all the apps available at launch:

Apple TV: Unboxing + comparison gallery

Plex tells us that they’re working hard to get it into the App Store as quickly as possible, so if it’s not there already, it should be showing up very soon – at this point I believe it’s Apple holding it up if anything.

Mine is waiting for me to go pick it up :-)  Do you know if Plex is in the ATV AppStore…?

Apple sued for activating Wi-Fi Assist by default

I disabled the blasted feature. Yes, I listen to podcasts and Spotify…mostly on Wi-Fi !!!! Yet after updating to iOS 9.02 I gobbled up 11GB of cellular data within 24-36 hours

I was going to wait, but they got me both for the AppleTV and the express shipping.  I’m weak :-)
