Apple going after press, YouTube stars ahead of iPhone X launch in uncharacteristic move

The world is changing fellas.  It may not be what some of us want, but Apple I trust knows what it’s doing.  I reckon many younger folks don’t read the “real” tech reviews and this is likely a smart move on ‘s part.

iPhone X pre-orders predictably sell out within minutes

Pickup availability seemed to vary between different areas, likely subject to how much stock each Apple Store has and of course the demand for pickup in those places. It’s also still not clear if Apple may have also been holding back some stock in each store for walk-ins customers on Nov. 3.

iPhone X pre-orders predictably sell out within minutes

Yeah, they went pretty fast. Of course, the worst-case scenario if you can find one in a store is that you simply cancel your online order — Apple doesn’t bill your credit card until the order is preparing for actual shipment, so there’s plenty of time to do that if you manage to get an iPhone X into your hands some other way.

Report: Apple fires engineer who let daughter film iPhone X video on Apple campus

Who’s her role models?

iPhone X pre-orders predictably sell out within minutes

You had to get on their early and manage to get through all the steps in a short time to get pickup.  The store would not let me connect until 10 after, and pick up was available.  28 minutes and 30+ error messages and retries later, I got to check out.  No more pickup available.  Delivery in early December only.  Since I figured that getting one in store was going to be impossible before Christmas and my battery lives about 4 hours now, this was the best option.

Report: Apple fires engineer who let daughter film iPhone X video on Apple campus

Probably not.  Today, it’s all about getting the scoop.  But then, look who the kid’s role-models are…not a shock.

At the end of the day, I hope she and her father learned a valuable lesson about personal responsibility.

Hmm .. I wish there was a pickup service available. One could only have it delivered to the home address but instore pickup was always greyed out.

Apple shying away from edgy shows for its video content debut

I see your point, yet I’m getting “bored” with the over abundance of violent “superhero” movies, the gore for the sake of gore horror movies, comedians who use think using the “F” word with anything makes it funny, and the unnecessary nudity shown since I can’t surmise people are having sex without it.
It’s not that I’m adverse to these things completely, it’s just that I agree with the strategy that Apple and NBC are taking…some of us are tired on cliche “shock” TV.

This sounds bland, boring, and safe…not really Apple’s style at all.

Apple TV expands search options in US, other countries gain networks and Apple Music support

And yet - still no Channel 4, ITV, Channel 5 or any other channels apart from BBC (with a sub-rate app) - the UK has a hell of a lot of catching up to do. Makes it a very frustrating device to own for anything apart from Netflix and iTunes content.

Apple reportedly moving to Face ID for all 2018 iPhones, getting rid of Touch ID

I’m inclined to agree, although I’m taking a “wait and see” approach on Face ID for now — if it works as well as some have been suggesting, it has the potential to be a good solution for most typical use-cases, although I’ll agree there’s still something to be said for being able to pull the iPhone out and authenticate for things like Apple Pay without having to specifically look at it (which I often do with Apple Pay).
However, I don’t imagine that any of this will affect Apple Pay on the Apple Watch… That already uses Wrist Detection so it has nothing to do with Touch ID now, so I can’t see that Face ID would change that in any way.

Apple reportedly moving to Face ID for all 2018 iPhones, getting rid of Touch ID

My opinion is an “and/or” approach rather than FaceID only. It just seems easier to touch that home button (or screen in future), than holding up to view your face. So at least, I’d like the option to use either approach. Perhaps the technical hurdles of the OLED touchscreen is the issue for TouchID, but it seems short-sighted at this point (no pun).
And where does this leave Apple Pay, or more specifically, Apple Pay on Apple Watch?

Cook shows signs of being open to EU tax reforms that keep revenue in countries where it's earned

I think people can stop reading the article after “French officials claim”.
They are politicians and will clean having scored what their electorate wants. But if you don’t see similar comments comming from the other side (here Apple) it means precisely nothing and is just cheap electoral talk (I remember this same French administration having already made claims of agreeing on things with the German government which were not followed by similar comments from the other party and lead to nothing)

Report: iPad Pro may be next device to get TrueDepth camera, Face ID

Hey, yeah… oh! While you are at it? Throw it into the Apple Watch… Series 4, too.

Happy Columbus Day + Canadian Thanksgiving!

Oh no, your life is so without purpose that you must attempt to belittle others to give it some meaning.
I suspect you’re a douchebag.

Happy Columbus Day + Canadian Thanksgiving!

Oh no, you’re upset they mentioned a current US national holiday that is still on the books as Columbus Day IN ADDITION to the Canadian Thanksgiving?
I suspect they’re heartbroken.

Happy Columbus Day + Canadian Thanksgiving!

Just want you to know I will no longer read/support your site since you feel it is appropriate to celebrate a murderer/plunderer/rapist (Columbus).

Apple releases iTunes 12.7, ditching App Store and adding iOS 11 support, new social features

The latest update is for me a disaster. For years - with iPods and then iPhones - I listened to podcasts. I used iTunes on my iMac to add podcasts to a playlist. This playlist with my chosen podcasts would then easily sync to my iPhone. You CAN NO LONGER CREATE A PLAYLIST FOR PODCASTS. I have spoken to several “senior” people at Applecare and they have confirmed that this function is lost. This makes it much more difficult to organize and listen to the podcasts that I want to listen to. Why did Apple decide to remove playlists from podcasts? Is Apple Help wrong? Is there a way to still use playlists? My podcast playlist now syncs with Music, BUT since podcast files are different from podcast files, the playlist in Music is empty. I have tried to substitute Overcast but it is not nearly as functional as the iTunes podcast playlist had been. I really wish Apple would enable playlists for podcasts. It would make my use of my iPhone much more enjoyable. Right now I am investigating whether Android phones would enable me to have a podcast list that I can update daily and change the place of podcasts in the list.

Apple releases iOS 11.0.2 with fix for iPhone 8 speaker problems

How about they fix they battery drain? I kept my jailbreak on my iPhone but updated my iPad Pro… the only reason I regret it is because I went from 3 days battery life to only a few hours! I’m so disgusted… I lose 50% and more while it’s sleeping at night.

Apple registers international trademark for Apple Pay Cash, expected to launch later in fall

Limiting the use of Apple PayCash to just… Apple/iOS products.. will curtail any possibility of long-term growth.

Apple ditches two-step authentication for two-factor in iOS 11, macOS High Sierra

Actually, they started the shift to 2-Factor Authentication in iOS 10. Once iOS 10 was installed it keeps nagging you to enable 2-Factor Authentication, whether you were using 2-Factor verification or not.

Apple increases iTunes movie rental time to 48 hours for US users

Since every other country got 48 hours, I can only guess that it was the studios tying Apple’s hands for whatever reason, and now somehow Apple has managed to negotiate better terms, perhaps as part and parcel of the new 4K movie deals.
