The Infinite Cooler launches on Indiegogo

Just a little wary. Another product. The coolest cooler on Kickstarter was a very high funded project that fizzled. With backers not receiving their product when the company ran into financial issues

Apple may be tightening USB Restricted Mode in latest iOS 12 beta

Well, as the feature is currently implemented, you only need to unlock your iPhone when you first plug it in, so as long as you keep it connected while driving, it wouldn’t be a problem.
Personally, I just wish wireless CarPlay was more widely available.

Apple may be tightening USB Restricted Mode in latest iOS 12 beta

Hopefully, Carplay will be excluded too.  That could be a safety issue, if you have to keep unlocking your phone to use Carplay while driving.

Wemo Mini adds direct HomeKit support via software update

Who uses homekit? I love my apple products, but I find homekit useless. I have tons of home automation devices cameras, mostion sensors, lights, switches, locks, doorbell, etc. My house is completely automated using Smartthings. Besides better security, homekit provides a fraction of features that other smarthubs do. By making their product too complicated to integrate with and limited features, homekit is a dead product that everyone keeps bring up when there are new ‘One’ off products that will connect to it. Guess what? Wemo has been compatible with Smartthings/Wink/Alexa Home for years.

Apple shows off new emoji coming in iOS 12

Heh, thanks for catching that. I guess that’s what happens when using a Canadian English dictionary and trying to type American English words (gray vs grey).

Apple notifies users of very old OS versions about upcoming payment security changes

I’m in the same boat — I don’t think I even have any active devices that are capable of running the listed operating systems, and I certainly haven’t had any devices that would have used them in at least five years.
My best guess is that Apple based it off devices that that a user has purchased or registered in the past, rather than what’s actively associated with your account.

Apple notifies users of very old OS versions about upcoming payment security changes

I don’t understand how they sent this message.  I got one, but have no devices running that old of a version of anything.  I have some iOS 9 devices like an iPad I keep around to watch videos at the gym, but nothing as old as what they list.

Report: Apple actively seeking to phase out Lightning connector on future iPhones

It is not so ‘ridiculous’ a thought. All Wireless is coming, even for the iPhone.

Report: Apple actively seeking to phase out Lightning connector on future iPhones

What a ridiculous thought, not everyone wants wireless headphones.
I have wireless for running, but a really good pair of earphones when I want to listen in general at other times. Losing the headphone jack I can live with as long as there is an adaptor for the lightning port but this???
I’m sure they’d lose many iphone users if this came to pass.

Report: Apple actively seeking to phase out Lightning connector on future iPhones

How is one supposed to connect an audio interface or any type of peripheral?

Report: Apple actively seeking to phase out Lightning connector on future iPhones

I use a charging pad for my iPhone 8 at night.  Had AirPods for a while and my car has bluetooth for music and calls.  I can’t remember when I last plugged anything into the Lightning port.  I might occasionally miss plugging in an SD card or video adaptor, but I’d be ok without a Lightning port for the most part.

Apple releases second developers betas for iOS 12, tvOS 12

The betas look pretty cool.

Apple cracks down on contact harvesting

Love the idea, but really, that horse left the barn a long time ago. At this point, I’d say probably 2 dozen apps on my iPhone at some point have harvested my contacts “to hook me up with my friends”.

Apple temporarily pulls first watchOS 5 beta amidst 'update issues'

The tvOS 12 beta still appears on the developer download page. However, if you’ve been using the tvOS 11 betas you’ll need to remove that old configuration profile and install the new one for tvOS 12 before you see the new betas show up.

I think TV OS 12 also? It still hasn’t shown up on AppleTV as beta update.

Apple revises App Store rules to allow for Valve's Steam Link and other similar apps

This talk of not allowing the Steam Link app because of the Steam store being available inside the app makes no sense considering that’s been inside the normal Steam app for years now.  Do hope that isn’t removed.

Apple rejects Steam Link iOS app, citing 'business conflicts'

Apple appears concerned Valve will use iOS devices as controllers in reverse, for Steam games.
Valve actually is in that rare delta where they could open up an antitrust case against Apple for its walled garden, something Apple has worked hard to avoid with Big Tech firms, cutting deals and flexing rules to avoid such court cases. It’s up to Valve if they want to spend the cash.

Belkin unveils 3.5mm audio cable with Lightning connector

In looking it, I strongly suspect that it’s not bi-directional, since it doesn’t appear to have the third ring that would be used for the mic input (contrast the 3.5mm plug with the one found on Apple’s EarPods, for instance), however I’ve reached out to Belkin for an official answer.

Belkin unveils 3.5mm audio cable with Lightning connector

Wondering if this is bi-directional. Could I, for example, take the stereo outs of a mixing board and import into an audio app?

Apple releases fifth betas for iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4, and watchOS 4.3.1

I hope it’ll fix the unicode emoji bugs and volume slider lag.
