Interesting that Apple is not restricting the use of what could be regarded as iCloud competitors. 
I personally think Australia may have the stupidest emergency number in the world. 000 Many offices require you to dial 0 to get a line out. To dial internationally from Australia you dial 0011 before the country code. Try dialing Internatioanlly from home when your fingers thing they are in the office? 0 0011... Of course everything after the 000 is ignored because you're already being connected to emergency services.
Nice. But I'm waiting for Doom.
A camera from Google, what could go wrong?   Aside from that. $100 for 10 days... any way I look at it, I'm seeing that 1 day of video at 1080p 30fps H.264 would be about 1TB per day. So for them to store a rolling 10 days of video, they need to allow 10TB storage.    Considering the storage required, is it still an unfair price?
PIP is handy but I would very much prefer to have video Snap-In at the TOP of a portrait rotation so that I can use Safari or a game in the bottom part of the screen.   I've tried video as Snap-In on my iPad Mini but of course that is on the side of the screen which is not a good ratio for video.  And on every iPad that is Not the iPad Air 2, you can't operate the app that is below the Snap-In anyway.   So I'll take what I'm given and use PIP but because Safari won't...
What I've found on iPad Mini is that after your first move the cursor, selection mode is already turned on. Too bad if you didn't get the cursor in the correct place the first time. I would also much prefer a button that turned selection/highlight mode on and off (akin to holding down Shift on a keyboard). I think ability to have multiple attempts to position the cursor before entering selection mode could be particularly important for customers who use accessibility...
Area 51 is a big place is it not? Are you saying Apple can't do two things at once? Anyway, what I'm saying is, I don't expect the speculation to end. If they, are making a car, they sure better be working on autonomous driving or they'll be way behind on features when the car is finished.
"Apple's disclosure should finally bring to an end hopeful speculation that the company might be using the vans to test out autonomous driving on active roads." Nope. You can make maps and test autonomous driving at the same time.
? If you have Insteon switches and sensor devices already, AppleTV can't control them so those people get can - if they want - get the new Insteon Hub which will also let them control HomeKit devices.If someone does not have any home automation yet, and if they want to be able to control home devices while they are not at home, they get the Apple TV to be the hub for HomeKit devices.Many if these companies were here before Apple got involved so they do have propriety systems.
Eric, Apple HAS to do that - that's the whole point of HomeKit - a single language. Maybe other developers can give it a go too but if we want to have Siri control our apps, Apple is going to want to control that experience I reckon.
