YouTube for Apple TV gets a major facelift

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 Music for Android adds music video improvements

It would be nice to be able to access iTunes Match through the Android app as I am locked to an S8 for my work phone.

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!

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

Nobody is forced to install the NRA TV app on their Apple TV.  Anyone who has it, installed it because they wanted to see it.
The right to own a gun is ingrained in the the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  The right to free speech is ingrained in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.  Apple should respect the 1st Amendment rights of people exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

Just-funded Plux wireless charging pad will have room for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods

Wish the Plux had a little more style, but I can see the benefit of the propped up iPhone while charging.

Apple hires Narcos, Hannibal producer Carol Trussell as Head of Production

It probably isn’t in the cards, but Apple should start off reviving “Hannibal”. It was a great series with a stellar cast and a dedicated fan base. It was highly rated when it was unceremoniously ended by NBC. I am sure there are “ownership” issues, but if they could work that out, it could be a nice, easy way for Apple to begin their original content era.

Twelve South adds iPhone X version of its SurfacePad case in exclusive colors

This thing should hardly be called a “case” since it offers no protection for the corners of the iPhone at all.  It’s just a flap of leather for the front and back.  Useless and not at all worth $50, you might as well just put one of those D-Brand stickers on your phone that all the YouTubers hawk endlessly.

YouTube for Apple TV gets a major facelift

Pretty much all other apps do 4K with the 4K Apple TV except for YouTube.

YouTube for Apple TV gets a major facelift

No 4K support on the 4K Apple TV? Even my built in Youtube app on my TV does this. I feel like apple is borderline false advertising on Apples behalf.

Apple's health team loses medical researcher Stephen Friend

A sad loss for Apple. But Stephen should not be the only one on their research team. The slack will just have to be filled.

Apple providing free repairs for 'No Service' problem on some iPhone 7 models sold in US

This happened to my iPhone 7 on Xmas eve.  I needed a phone right away so I bought a new one and sold the broken one as-is.  When I found out this was a thing I called Apple Support and they confirmed that I was out of luck.  Doesn’t seem fair since they sold me a defective phone.

Cook apologizes for lack of clarity on iPhone slowdowns, promises transparency in coming iOS update

Really, and what’s he saying about the ” recents ” issue with imessage or any other of the myriad of issues affecting iphone performance.Lack of clarity is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to performance and glitches. Apple is quickly becoming just another phone manufacturer as opposed to a company that really wants to do a good job.

BMW to charge $80 annual fee for CarPlay in its vehicles

I think this is total crap.  Not sure how they can sell it this way.  Car Play is not a service.  It’s essentially an interface.  Not that I have to worry about it in the near future.  No plans to buy a BMW.  But I worry how it trickles into other carmakers’/aftermarket head unit manufacturers’ thoughts on delivering this as a service.  I don’t suspect this is how Apple intended it to be implemented.  Wonder how they feel about it…

BMW to charge $80 annual fee for CarPlay in its vehicles

If they charge for it, they had better plan on updating it too.  No way should we be charged for a service that fails to work with the next generation device.

Apple facing class action suits over slowing down older iPhones

Count me as one of the consumers who feels “duped” into buying an iPhone 8 because nothing seemed to fix the sizable performance loss in my iPhone 6 once updating to iOS 11. I never replaced the iPhone 6’s battery, but I never had an issue with its charge; due in part to my constant charging when at home, office or car, no doubt. I felt almost forced to upgrade my phone at that point.
Not to say it was a diabolical conspiracy by Apple, but it certainly feels wrong that once being outed by a 3rd party then providing a tepid mea culpa mere days before Christmas, their strategy definitely minimized any sales impact from this event.
I, for one, say bring on the lawsuits.
