Apple asking music labels to kill Spotify's free streaming tier

I wonder whether the sources that leaked this are actually spotify employees. This reeks of the same tactic Netflix employs to forward their agenda.

You’re tattooing it wrong? :p

Problem with iPad app grounds American Airlines flights

I wonder if he could have used a different word than “crashing.”

Apple releases second iOS 8.4 beta to developers

FYI—I installed this build on my 6+ and the battery drain is extreme, which wasn’t an issue with the previous beta.  No idea what’s causing it, but looks like I’ve lost my stellar battery performance until the next update :-(

Apple's third-generation Siri built on Mesos platform

I’d like it if I could customize Siri so her voice is Paul Bettany’s (actor who voices JARVIS) and responds to Jarvis rather than Siri

Apple planning to release new iPod touch later this year?

This makes no sense whatsoever. The iPod Touch seems like a dead end ant this point, especially if it isn’t bigger, at least the size of an iPhone 6. The only way I could imagine it would generate any interest is if they release a 128GB model, but that would be so expensive I think very few would buy it. The other possibility would be to release it in the size of the iPhone 6 Plus and get rid of the iPad Mini, the existence of which has been harder to justify since the iPhone 6 Plus was introduced. And other “sources familiar” say that the iPad Touch 6 has been delayed into next year.

YouTube app won't work on older Apple TVs, versions of iOS starting in May

This is entirely about ads.  All the video’s would be able to still play fine, both in the Youtube app and in the browser, but the app and browser don’t support all the features needed for tracking and processing all the ads they are shoving into youtube.

Details of Apple Watch's heart monitor, limitations released

It’s unclear, as the document only says “various factors.” We’re thinking it’s more likely that arm hair would have a greater effect on readings, but we can’t be sure yet.

Does skin color affect the accuracy of these readings?

L.A. school district seeking restitution over failed iPad program (Updated)

he’s dissatisfied with their product

Translation:  His little hellions abused, broke, and stole the iPads and now he wants Apple to pay the costs for the LAUSD’s failure to come up with a viable plan to protect the assets and hold students accountable for the safe return of the devices.

In-store sales of Apple Watch delayed until at least June

She’s putting lipstick on a pig.  This was an epic fail from a marketing sense.  It only proves that the product triumphs over a major misunderstanding of the Apple customer.  It ain’t Beverly Hills.

Alleged 'iPad Pro' photos show second Lightning port?

While that would be a nice idea, based on Apple’s past track record, I’m not holding my breath. If Apple put a USB-C port on there at all, it would likely be highly restricted to only working with very specific devices. However, considering the amount of money Apple makes, and the control it exerts, with its MFi licensing program, it’s unlikely that company would just open the gates to non-MFi accessories that easily.

L.A. school district seeking restitution over failed iPad program (Updated)

Since the LAUSD lost 1000 iPads, they will have to find them first before asking for a refund. The gall of them. Idiots.

Report: Apple Watch Sport comes with three band pieces, not two separate bands

Doesn’t seem to change anything for Bandswapper.  The watch still comes with 2 different size pieces.  The fact that the mating 1/2 of the band is common for both sizes only means there is just the one piece to swap, not two.  Seems to make Bandswapper even easier - only 1 piece of the band to ship/exchange, not both.

Apple Watch models sell out quickly, shipping estimates now 4-6 weeks or later

I ordered the silver aluminum Sport with the green sport band, since it should arrive on the 24th.  At least it will match my green silicone case on my iPhone 6 Plus.
I am still planning on going to the store and checking out the stainless steel models, though.

Apple Watch models sell out quickly, shipping estimates now 4-6 weeks or later

I ordered the 42mm black band/space gray sports model, June shipping.  Nice in a way as there will be plenty of time to cancel the order should I inherit some common sense, I actually the the 2nd or 3rd gen models are going to be the way to go ;-)

Apple releases iOS 8.3, iCloud Photo Library comes out of beta

Faces doesn’t sync. Hoped it would do it by the time it was out of beta. Oh well….. :(

Apple releases Guided Tour videos for Apple Watch

It’s just mind blowing. Eagerly waiting to try Apple Watch..

HBO Now channel added to Apple TV (Updated)

Signed up from my iPhone in the US without issue just for the trial period. I have HBO Go thru my cable subscription.
Biggest difference I noticed immediately: no Chromecast support. The HBO Go iOS app and website both support Chromecast; HBO Now does not. You can sort of stream using Chrome’s Chromecast extension, but this method drops frames like crazy, very ‘stuttery’ viewing. Huge difference than native support.
Am wondering if this is part of the Apple 3-month exclusivity arrangement; after which the ‘Now’ app will support Chromecast like the ‘Go’ one already does.

'Star Wars' movies available on iTunes April 10

This is such great news.  I hate the inconvenience of putting discs in my Blu Ray player.  Plus, you can’t watch Blu Ray discs on your Apple Watch.

Apple wants networks to handle streaming for its web TV service

So, Apple is planing to create a product that they’d like ISPs to “Ship” to consumers for the same price as a product that burdens the ISP network a fraction of another product.  Does this make economic sense to anyone, other than geeks who want stuff for FREE?  This is exactly why “Net Neutrality” is absurd.  Shyte costs money and sending comments to the FCC to demand stuff for FREE doesn’t mean you’ll end up paying less in the end.  Someone has to pay. Apparently, Apple thinks all ISP customers should share the burden of increased costs rather than those who actually use their rumored product.

I bet that is a USB-C port

Apple quietly acquiring companies to improve cloud services?

Interesting idea, and some would call that the next logical step, but I also wonder if we’d basically be going down the same road as we did with Apple Maps in terms of the data set not being up to par. I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple tried this, but it might be a few years before it’s really a viable alternative to Google or even Bing.
