  • Apple uses Messages colors to bully Android users, says Google

    Ridiculous claim. 

    We the consumer are the only ones who can actually turn the identifying colors into a “bullying mentality”. 

    In the beginning there was only one color. Distinguishing between iMessages and a non-iMessage text became necessary as iMessages evolved. 

    In general, I think the color scheme was correct as iMessages were sent over as a “free” message that only required an internet connection while non-iMessages needed a cellular plan which cost money. 

    Blue=free message/iMessage 
    green=Cellular plan ($$$) 

    It wasn’t intended for just android users, it was a visual indicator for anything that would cost you money. 

    Green =💰 

    I appreciated the identifier. 
    To this day I have to have a plan to include SMS messages for non Apple uses. 

    If anything this is bullying. 

    What a dumb thing to suggest that Apple created this bullying mentality. 

    If anything apple solved a problem and created competition  to lower sms messaging plans. I still remember the days when was he text  messages were counted and if you went over a certain amount you were charged extra. 

    Sure, now most if not all plans include  unlimited calls and text messages, but let’s not forget that in the beginning we were all metered.

  • Apple working on charging infrastructure for electric cars - report

    Look AI, I like you. But please TAKE DOWN that stupid God awful Apple Car "mock up". It's a joke. No seriously, somebody (most likely an apple Hater) made it as joke. Why can't some one just photo shop a tesla with an  on it?? Anything is better than that POS

  • Everything new in iOS 14.2 beta 1 -- updates to Control Center, Watch icon & more

    Hopefully they fix the horrendous bug that unpacks all of your app folders when you add one of the larger  widgets to the home screen and move them to another page.

    What a nightmare… Every single app in all the folders got unpacked and I had 12 pages open that I had to re-organize.

    As cute as it is and as easy as if they think it is… They really need to get rid of this “wiggle” thing and just add a simple drag and drop to make folders and remove folders.

    Also how about a page rearrange? Why can’t I just drag the whole page and place it in front of another page? 

    Maybe I’m missing something but its all so tedious

  • MagSafe Duo Charger limited to 11W with 20W adapter

    As predicted last week. 
    So, let’s see... that’s a total of $148 for a compromised charging speed OR $178 for a slightly better, yet still compromised, charging speed? Lol, I can’t wait to hear how it gets defended now.  
    Initially I thought this product looked pretty good. But, with all these compromised charging speeds and these prices without blocks… It’s looking more and  more like this is not something I want to get invested in.

    You can’t hold your phone and charge either with this product . . . well maybe you can but it would most likely be a very heavy and bulk hold. 

    At first glance it looks like a nice little travel package but you’d still need to carry a cable and a charging block along with this thick foldable charger.

    So it really isn’t that portable. 

    What I suggest is that if you’re  looking for portability… Pick up the Apple Watch magnetic charger dock… It comes with a super long cable and with this you could fold up and separate from the cord. $79. 

    Then get a dual Anker charger for $14 

    Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock


    There’s also a cheap Belkin alternative that uses your Apple Watch included mag Charger but you can’t separate it from the disc. 

    Belkin Travel Stand Charger for Apple Watch Series 4, 3, 2, 1, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072KS25ZB/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_yqvTFbSXAS05D

    Sure you would still need a cable and a charging block for your iPhone… But you already have those and if you bought this duo charger, you would still need a cable and a charging block to travel with it so you’re not really add any more to your travel accessories.

  • iPhone 15 overheat complaints are inconsistent, and it's unclear what's going on

    This guy is a very smart You Tuber who has been taking about overheating since iPhone 14.

    The OVERHEATING seems to be coming from INSTAGRAM. 

    There could possibly be other apps but seeing as how this is the most popular app out there many people spend many hours on it, this is concerning. 


    This seems logical. iPhonedo is a great and uses logical and tools to test their products reviews. 

    Good stuff.

  • Hands on: Apple's new FineWoven iPhone 15 cases

    The real question is how do they wear?  I wonder if they patina? 
    That was my favorite thing about the leather cases. They look awesome patina and scared.

  • Sandmarc releases Titanium Edition band for Apple Watch Ultra

    kiehtan said:
    I had a polished stainless Juukdesign (Amazing watch bands by the way) Velo band  on my stainless Apple Watch 4 and 6. Put it on the Ultra and it contrasted too much with the titanium. I ordered a brushed stainless Juukdesign band to replace it, figuring the brushed stainless would be a closer match.  After seeing this, I'm going to return the Juuk band and pick this up. Nothing will match titanium better than titanium. I'm hoping the craftsmanship measures up. 
    Actually, why don’t you check out nomad goods at www.hellonomad.com. They have great quality and I picked up both are stainless steel and their titanium Apple Watch band. I think the style is much better and the titanium craftsmanship is superb.

    I have the original titanium band and the new version 2 has a magnetic clasp. So the only thing to watch out for is when you release the buckle there’s nothing holding it on your wrist so be careful as to not let it drop and hit the floor.

    I don’t know about this new company, seems like the price is right for titanium but nomads band is amazing.

  • Apple's all-new AirPods support Spatial Audio for $179

    As Apple slowly spreads color through its entire product line, why do they insist on keeping their most personal one available only in white?
    I too would love different colors. 

    They keep it white Because they Want it to stand out in your ear and not go unnoticed. 

    I paid to have my AirPods Pro’s painted Matte black and nobody notices them in my ear. When I talk on the phone  they think I’m talking to them. 

    If they do notice it from me pointing it out, they ask which model it is assuming  it’s a Samsung or some generic model. 

    I recently lost them and  bought new “white” AirPods Pro and everyone seems see them and when I talk to someone with them in my ear  they assume I’m talking on the phone. 

    So, white does make a difference.
