  • The WSJ calling the iPhone XR a failure that 'can't sell' is ludicrously mistaken

    Why would anyone pay $749 or more for a phone? That is a ridiculous amount of money.
    Since you asked......there’s no reason why anyone would pay $749 for a phone, but probably a few good reasons why anyone would pay $749 for a smartphone.

  • Apple announces water resistant iPhone 7: pressure sensing home button, dual cameras, jet black fin

    Sorry guys. I’m really trying hard, but I can’t share your enthusiasm. I’m scrolling through the list of new features over and over but for the first time since 2008 I can’t seem to convince myself that upgrading to 7 makes much sense. I think the lack of new design, or egde to edge screen, leaves me with no emotion that I was so used to with every Apple product release. 

    what actual value-add would you derive from an edge-to-edge screen or new case design?

    Precisely the same value-add that Apple derives from having Jony Ive to lead the design team instead of letting him drink Guinness with Bono in Dublin since the iPhone 6 release. Or as Steve once said: "Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in succesive outer layers of the project, or service.” Or perhaps Apple itself can convince you with one of the two iPhone 7 videos

  • Shareholders ask Apple to study impact of iPhone addiction on young users

    I am truly puzzled by this intense uproar of the best parents on planet earth. Why is asking for parenting tools and controls making those who can afford to give their kids iPhones bad parents? You know we have parenting controls on macOS….

    Who gives a frack about edge to edge! Tiresome.
    Those who buy Apple products to love them. Looking at the same design for 4 years sounds tiresome to me
    Guess Porsche should close up shop then huh. Utter nonsense. If a design is not useful or well done, don't do it. Doing it "just because" is utter bullock.
    Fair point. The 911 hasn't changed a bit in the last 50 years. Or has it? I guess the iPhone design team can close the shop then huh.
