Apple increases iPhone prices in Canada

this was a vicious move by apple’s marketing/sales department. The dollar will climb back up just the same as oil prices. the new macbook is ridiculously overpriced in Canada now. I don’t even want to see the watch.

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

What do they mean by “Time Check”? Will the Apple Watch be normally with a screen in “OFF” mode in order to save battery? This is ridiculous. When I wear a watch on my wrist I don’t want to tap on screens or push buttons in order to see the time, and I am certainly not worried about “Time Checking” so that the battery doesn’t run out. WTF!

Apple publishes official Watch battery life estimates; Power Reserve mode to last 72 hours

I’d tend to agree, considering what the device is capable of. I know people who don’t want to have to “plug their watch in” every night, but one could have said the same thing about cellular phone users in the days before the iPhone.
Besides, with 72 hours on the “Power Reserve” mode, this thing will still function as a watch for a much more reasonable length of time.

Apple nixed health features from Apple Watch

Not really. If you read in more detail, it says that Apple had more serious ambitions for the health features of the Apple Watch, such as measuring “blood pressure and blood oxygen levels.”
While the Apple Watch as it exists today measures heart rate, it falls short of those more lofty goals. As it notes, Apple had to “settle for the more basic pulse-rate monitoring feature” that we see in the Apple Watch today.

18 hours is reasonable.

Jony Ive: Apple Watch was a 'design challenge'

He’s right with that ‘prison’ statement.  While I think the functionality of the new Microsoft Band is good, it does rather look like an institutional ID bracelet from some futuristic SciFi movie ;-)

Some U.S. retailers disabling Apple Pay in favor of other services?

Well I barely shop at any of these stores as it is, I suppose I will just never shop there now.  One, they are basically telling consumers how the consumer can or can not use their credit/debit cards.  Two, I dont want them tracking things I purchase.  Three, this systems sound less secure than what apple has in place.  Best Buy has been on the decline as it is, and I loathe Walmart anyways.  CVS is the one that truly irks me, but I barely shop there any ways.  The only advantage I see is for the retailer in avoiding the merchant fees of cards.  That wont last long I can almost guarantee it.  Any move that limits how a customer can pay will effectively reduce customer base.

Apple sends out invites for Oct. 16 event

Given the amount of whining I have seen about the Apple TV and the Mac Mini not being updated, I think that is what Apple is talking about.

I’m sure a million Apple Users asking for updated Mac Minis would agree with the line!

Personally, I am looking forward to a new iMac. My 27” 2009 one is grown very long in the tooth. I have my money ready. Am just waiting for something new to come out.

Apple sends out invites for Oct. 16 event

It’s been way too long?  It’s been a year.  How often do you think you should be coming out with new iPads?  Every half year?  (like when you introduced iPad 4 in the fall after you introduced the ironically titled “New iPad” the previous spring?)

Apple sapphire supplier GT Advanced Technologies files for bankruptcy

Didn’t you guys say awhile ago that the iPhone 6’s don’t have sapphire protecting the camera anymore, mainly because of the fact that it was protruding?  I can’t find the link but I’m sure I read it.

Redesigned Foursquare 8.0 removes check-ins

I’ve been a Foursquare user for years. I had about two dozen mayorships. I would check in at about 10 locations per day on average. I have deleted the now useless app and I’m scratching my head at why Foursquare has decided to abandon its core users like me.

Facebook promises monthly iOS app updates

I’d settle for them actually telling us what is in these updates.  Their iOS update notes haven’t said anything in several versions now.

EU criticizes Apple for in-app purchases (Update)

Solution is easy. Make Apple declare the purchase price of “FREE” apps the sum total of their “In App” purchase prices.

If you see an App with a cost of £350 you’ll know what you’re getting into.

NFL Sunday Ticket to stream on iPad, iPhone with no satellite subscription (Update)

The requirements appear to be quite outdated.  It shows OS-X 10.5 or later and only show up to Windows VISTA!  Not Windows 7 or Windows 8.  That would explain why no iPad Air, iPhone 5s, etc.

Apple reveals more Family Sharing details

@dj12 (#1): Well, based on the FAQ above, I don’t think it’s so much that developers have a choice, but simply that they have to agree to new contract terms before the feature is enabled. Sooner or later—probably by the time iOS 8 is released—I expect devs will be forced to agree to those terms one way or another. So it’s not really an “opt-in” thing for developers, but rather just a fact that there’s a new agreement in place for how it’s handled.

That said, the IAP limitation is certainly more worrisome. Hopefully developers who have previously built free/paid versions of their apps by leveraging IAPs will create and/or continue to offer standalone versions that can be bought in the traditional manner. Still, unless Apple puts in warnings for end users explaining that IAPs cannot be shared before allowing users to make them, there are going to be a lot of people caught by this restriction.

Apple reveals more Family Sharing details

I think this feature may be DOA. If devs have to opt in to explicitly let people use the same app on many devices for no extra charge, and if families aren’t able to share IAPs, I don’t really see much incentive to use it on either end of the transaction. People will just continue to share the same iTunes account.
