iOS 8: Healthbook as aggregator, faster camera speed

Gimmick? Maybe.  USA-only?  Not sure how Healthbook could be beneficial to just us yanks.  But I agree that a lot of these iOS bells ‘n whistles are crud that would be nice to be able to delete, rather than moving to the last available screen.

iWatch poll ends, first accessory poll begins

Seems that some of us might need a “None of the above” choice, if tracking the relative volume of people who don’t buy any accessories at all, or nothing other than a case.

iOS 8: Healthbook as aggregator, faster camera speed

Call me a cynic, but isn’t this just another USA-only gimmick App, that will never be used, like Passbook, Stocks and NewsStand - something the everyone just wants to delete but can’t?

Nest Protect subject to safety issue, sales halted

The Nest Wave feature was the one feature that convinced me to buy the product. I have two of them. If the wave to stop feature is not restored quickly, I will be asking Nest for my money back. I can use other resources to monitor my house remotely, but no one likes digging out a broom to disable an alarm that is accidentally triggered.

This is strike two. The first strike was selling to Google. If there is a strike three, I will replace my Nest thermostat and fire alarms, and they will be “outta here.”

Great review. You don’t have to go through the whole game to get to the hidden levels, just one room back.

Apple releases iOS 7.1

They have still not fixed the bug in Calendar when you add an event and create two alarms and the alarms switch between the two intervals. It has been there since iOS 6.X.

iTunes Radio could be standalone app in iOS 8

Oh please, iTunes Radio works perfectly right now, don’t mess it up!  When podcasts were still handled within iTunes and the music app on iPhones, they worked perfectly.  With the creation of the Podcasts app, listening, syncing, using Airplay, all have been a complete train wreck ever since.  We don’t need the same thing to happen to iTunes Radio.

iTunes Radio could be standalone app in iOS 8

Hopefully this will mean that in the next iOS when I want to enjoy my music on my iPhone 5 in the car, I won’t get that darn “Cellular Data is Turned Off for Music. You can turn on cellular data for this app in Settings” every single time since iOS 7.1. Quite the mood killer.

Apple TV 6.1 update released, allows users to hide channels

Hiding channels was possible before this update, Apple just moved the setting from “Restrictions” to a new “Main Menu” category.

Apple releases iTunes 11.1.5

Like last update, 11.1.4, this is causing issues for Windows 7 64 bit users. Installation hangs for me at about 80% complete, cancelling hangs as well. Glad I had made recent updates. Followed instructions here to remedy:

Twelve South intros Compass 2 iPad stand

This is great, I use it a lot. BUT beware, pull it out of your carry on as it always gets pulled and examined by the TSA at airports. You’ve been warned!

Report: Apple sapphire plant has capacity for mass production

Have a look at Apple’s Liquid Metal (Aquistion)process, does it use the same furnace?

WWE Channel coming to Apple TV Feb. 24?

And if you have no interest in WWE, if this story comes true then you can hide it (and other unused services) from your main screen.  Just go to Settings, General, Parental Controls, scroll down to the list of items at the bottom and set each one to “Hide” to make them disappear from your Main Menu entirely.

Apple bulking up Internet infrastructure for more TV content?

Does this mean ATV3 firmware that works?

Since the second firmware update, the WiFi on ATV3 is unusable. Home-sharing and streaming drops randomly all the time. It’s currently not fit for purpose.
Apple are conveniently ignoring the huge forum threads on the topic.

WSJ: Apple mulls physical purchases via iTunes accounts

I’d be curious if an iTunes store balance (from gift cards) would be applied, or if it would only pull from CCs.

Scosche releases MagicMount system for iOS devices

Well, that’s interesting because I’ve had the same product since 2012 but under another brand!  I love it, works great, I bought it for my father too.

Apple posts security update, DOJ allows more disclosures

Poor English in this article (“Apple posts security update”)!
Should be “...the number of National Security orders…”
The word ‘amount’ is correctly used in relation to that which cannot be counted (examples: ‘the amount of sand’; ’ a large amount of nothing’; ‘such an amount of garbage!’)
The word ‘number’ is used in relation to that which can be counted (more examples: ‘the number of iPads’; ‘a large number of cars’; ‘he expected a number of reasons for the tardiness’).

Notes from Apple’s Q1 2014 conference call

That’s it, Tim, blame the declining iPod sales.  When was the last time Apple even gave a second thought to the iPod Classic, the device that allowed you to expand into unchartered territory (and profits)?  That gave birth to the iTunes Store, the iPhone, the iPad, and even iTunes Match…. the Cloud…. and yet you just dismiss it.

Update the Classic.  Give it a refresh, starting with a minimum of 256GB flash storage.  Some people like to have all their music with them all the time, and not be beholden to a WiFi connection and data quotas to listen to their music.

Jeez, your company is such a cheapsake sometimes.  You rake us over the coals for the price of 16/32/64/128 gb storage, and you lock us into your Eco-System, and yet you can’t give us the music we purchased and outright own.

Apple releases iTunes 11.1.4

I have made several attempts to update from 11.1.3.8 but cannot get 11.1.4 to install on my Win 7/64 PC. I’ve had to perform a System Restore after every attempt.  11.1.3.8 run fine after the Restore.  Will avoid this update and wait for a fix.

Apple releases iTunes 11.1.4

Meanwhile, the issue of disappearing playcounts continues to be solemnly ignored by Apple despite all the complaints from desperate users in discussion forums for almost a year now.

Apple releases iTunes 11.1.4

Beware of this update! I have had nothing but trouble since downloading and have had to spend a lot of time fixing things that Apple missed! Shame on them, we need Steve to come haunt his employees and scream at them like the days of old…

I installed the latest update on a windows 8 computer and Itunes will not open.  I have tried three installs to no avail.

Screen protector poll ends, Apple TV poll begins

Can you add “WiFi that doesn’t crash or drop every ten minutes” to the vote.

This is a MAJOR problem with the ATV3 (check the forums) and has been since the second firmware update.
