Apple cracks down on contact harvesting

Love the idea, but really, that horse left the barn a long time ago. At this point, I’d say probably 2 dozen apps on my iPhone at some point have harvested my contacts “to hook me up with my friends”.

Apple temporarily pulls first watchOS 5 beta amidst 'update issues'

The tvOS 12 beta still appears on the developer download page. However, if you’ve been using the tvOS 11 betas you’ll need to remove that old configuration profile and install the new one for tvOS 12 before you see the new betas show up.

I think TV OS 12 also? It still hasn’t shown up on AppleTV as beta update.

Apple revises App Store rules to allow for Valve's Steam Link and other similar apps

This talk of not allowing the Steam Link app because of the Steam store being available inside the app makes no sense considering that’s been inside the normal Steam app for years now.  Do hope that isn’t removed.

Apple rejects Steam Link iOS app, citing 'business conflicts'

Apple appears concerned Valve will use iOS devices as controllers in reverse, for Steam games.
Valve actually is in that rare delta where they could open up an antitrust case against Apple for its walled garden, something Apple has worked hard to avoid with Big Tech firms, cutting deals and flexing rules to avoid such court cases. It’s up to Valve if they want to spend the cash.

Belkin unveils 3.5mm audio cable with Lightning connector

In looking it, I strongly suspect that it’s not bi-directional, since it doesn’t appear to have the third ring that would be used for the mic input (contrast the 3.5mm plug with the one found on Apple’s EarPods, for instance), however I’ve reached out to Belkin for an official answer.

Belkin unveils 3.5mm audio cable with Lightning connector

Wondering if this is bi-directional. Could I, for example, take the stereo outs of a mixing board and import into an audio app?

Agile Tortoise releases Drafts 5

Happy to pay a reasonable price for the app (I’ve paid for multiple omni group apps) but the subscription thing just doesn’t work for me. How many subscriptions do these folks think we are willing to pay for? Agile tortoise aside it’s very rare that I’ve seen any software updated regularly enough to warrant paying for it monthly. Don’t even get me started on all the “abandon ware” I’ve ended up paying for over the years. I purchased the app in the past but I’m out now.

Agile Tortoise releases Drafts 5

Another company that’s dead to me now, thanks to the putrid subscription model they’ve adopted. Shame, because Drafts is one of my most used apps. I recall paying somewhere around $6.99 or so for Drafts 4, and used it for around 3 years, give or take. Similar for Drafts 3, iirc. But now they want me to pay $19.99 per year? Sorry, your app is good, but not that good. Living without the dark theme, I can handle, but removing the ability for users to create extensions unless they pay for subscription is simply vile. All that’s left is a simple note taker in the free version. I’d have gladly paid $10 one time, but I ain’t falling for this subscription crap. Oh, and the devs can take their “less then a cup of coffee” weasel-phrase and shove it up their rectum. I don’t live in the first world, and we don’t have a culture of drinking overpriced hipster coffee here. Now I need to look for an alternative.

Apple lands Asimov 'Foundation' TV series

Oh wow! That’ll be definitely a reason to get me to subscribe. The Foundation series is classic and I always wondered why no-one tried to get that one on screen.

google/YouTube snatched from us, without notice, a superior app, replacing it with a an old, clunky, dusty, app that the rest of the device world suffers with.

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

If Apple caves and removes that channel, they should also agree to donate any proceeds from violent movies or shows they air to whatever the PC cause of the day happens to be.
I mean really! Either they are against violence or they are not right?

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

Exactly, take this quote “propagates dangerous misinformation and inflammatory rhetoric that pits Americans against each other and furthers their agenda of guns anywhere, for anyone, no questions asked.”
If you change one word “guns” to “abortions”, the quote would apply to Planned Parenthood.  I’m not advocating limiting Planned Parenthood, just pointing out that limiting free speech is a two way street.

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

I’m pretty much in agreement with you on this. While I don’t think this has anything to do with the 2nd Amendment and I, as a gun owner, support tougher ownership laws (just like a car requires DL, taxes, registration), this is a very slippery slope Apple would embark on.
What will be next…religion, political affiliation, geographic location? If Apple is to lean on the 1st Amendment for policies and media it supports, then it should follow suit for those it disagrees with in an equal manner. Otherwise, spare me the hypocrisy!
