Report: Apple's video strategy has Hollywood confused

If the new TV App represents their best effort, an unnecessary and time consuming extra layer to select a TV show or movie… then Roku can rest easy ;-)

Apple begins sale of 'SIM-free' unlocked iPhone 7 models in the U.S.

You shouldn’t have any issues on most international GSM carriers — the SIM-free iPhone appears to be the same model that’s sold by Apple internationally as well. Apple actually maintains a list of compatible carriers and LTE frequencies at http://www.apple.com/iphone/LT…

Apple begins sale of 'SIM-free' unlocked iPhone 7 models in the U.S.

Would I have an issue using a SIM Free, US iPhone overseas?  Currently I purchase local SIMs when I travel abroad.

Apple creating new London headquarters

Ok, the cool factor of Apple setting up it’s headquarters in the iconic location for Pink Floyd’s “Animals” album cover is off the scale.

Apple releases iTunes 12.5.1

Ok already found a bug in 12.5.1 i think.  Wondering if someone else can verify.  I was in the middle of downloading some music and updating my library etc and I was on 12.5.  Now i have 12.5.1.  When i click on download for a song whether clicking the icon or right click menu option of download, itunes jumps over to the browse screen.  So… this is broken for me.  Let me know if anyone else can check this please.

Apple facing class-action lawsuit over lack of iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus stock for Upgrade Program

The courts have better things to do that deal with whiny consumers who can’t get an iPhone on launch day… like… hearing cases about exploding Note 7’s causing injury and/or property damage.  Ridiculous.

iPhone Upgrade Program users frustrated by limited stock, reservation problems

If you buy your phone for $1000. and after one year sell it for $500. What do you have?

iPhone Upgrade Program users frustrated by limited stock, reservation problems

It is only yours if you take the contract to full term. If you trade at 1 year, then you have paid circa $500 and have nothing to show for it. You then start a whole new contract for the upgraded phone. That’s a lease, even if they don’t explicitly call it such.
What you describe, paying off the balance of your contract and then owning the phone is no different from paying off the balance at the end of a lease and keeping the car you are leasing—except, of course, that the interest rate is quite favorable (can’t beat 0% can you?).
And I DO want to upgrade next year. The 8 looks to be a much bigger upgrade than the 7 is, assuming rumors are correct.

I don’t see the shaft. These are our phones. It is no lease. If you don’t want to get a new iphone then you just keep paying the monthly no interest charge for another year. If you want to sell the iphone then you can sell it and just pay back what is still owed on the phone. I was able to reserve a phone on sept. 16 between 8-830. I just have to take my phone in and pay 45$ for the new one. And also pay my monthly payment for this month. If i dont want to upgrade next year, then I just keep paying the monthly payments instead of trading in. It is weird that I can’t just pay off the phone. I can’t make a payment higher then my monthly bill.

iPhone Upgrade Program users frustrated by limited stock, reservation problems

Well, I was never crazy about paying $40-50 a month essentially to lease a phone I will never own (assuming I go for annual upgrades). Your experience seals the deal. I’ll start now setting aside that same amount monthly and purchase an iPhone 8 the minute they become available—paying full price up front. If I keep that phone for 2 years and continue to set aside what I would have paid in installments for that 2 years, I’ll be paying the same as I would have through the Apple Upgrade program with none of the gotchas. Or, I can upgrade annually and sell my old phone on eBay.
Nice try Apple, but the devil’s in the details. It’s the Apple fanboys that feel a need to upgrade annually—preferably the minute a new iPhone comes out; shaft them (as you are doing) at your peril.

No.. thats not the issue.. The issue is we CANNOT preorder.
You see, un-like someone who orders online, we MUST go into the store to get our upgrade.. because of that, it creates a whole mess of issues..
1) The phone must be available in the store.. So if it’s not, we cannot pre-order it and expect it to be delivered to the store on X date.
2) because we must go into the store to have our phones assessed to make sure their is no damage, again, we want to walk OUT with a phone, we cannot just go in, pre-order, hand over our old phone, and have NOTHING to use while waiting for our new phone to arrive.
3) apple system, as it stands is not setup well to allow pre-orders that require a pickup in the store.. Apparently..
So we have to wait for stock to be plentiful in the store we must use, which is SOOOO much BS. Basically, this upgrade program sucks if you your someone who wants to be in on the rush, because Apple pushes us to the back-burner.

Apple executives explain decision to kill off headphone jack

i’ll stay with my iPhone 5, which is perfectly normal for me today (and at least next 5 years) and because of that decision with 3.5 jack and complete ignorance about Apt-X, HEVC and etc. - such can be the last iPhone i bought from “Apple” company, returned to their former times without Jobs, so becoming mediocre company, trying to hold the niche luxury market with watch, (Jobs would sell them for $50 today, no one care about ceramic and gold with crocodile leather).
