I'm no lawyer by any means, but a lawyer acquaintance of mine who's represented quite a few companies in alleged Sherman violations, claims that the Sherman Anti-Trust act is worded such that the government can object to just about any business practice that it wants to. And define as "business practice" many things that most people would scratch their heads at.
AppleInsider said:The EU's plan goes further in that it also looks for organized crime and terrorist activity.
When the capability exists, overreaching governments will exploit it.
chadbag said:The fact that Apple got back to him and asked for more time and he basically gave them the finger puts this guy in the d*ck category. If Apple was totally ignoring him then maybe his protest disclosure would make sense. But he just put a mark on his forehead that he is a d*ck and not to be worked with.
You saw the part where he asked Apple for a few reasonable details and they told him to sod off, did you not?
Fred257 said:This will be a game changer ((literally)
- Apple will need to start caring about games other than those in the Arcade.
- Game developers will need to port their games to this device.
- Apple will need to make it compatible with existing VR platforms, e.g. Steam VR, Meta, Windows Mixed Reality, etc.
The other, and more likely IMO, possibility is that it because a must-have accessory for my work PC. It's doubtful that my employer will invest in that particular possibility, unless it becomes obvious that it will be a cost savings. It's even less likely that I would be allowed to connect such an accessory to my work machine. Our security is so locked down that it took me three months to convince them to allow bluetooth connections other than the keyboard and mouse. 😕
mrd10 said:This was silly “funny”. But is anyone else TRULY over this headphone jack debate? My god, can we all get over the 3.5mm port? It’s old tech, it’s time to let it go. The number of people who actually need that port (musicians or designers, whatever) are far and few between. The most of the world does NOT “need” a headphone jack. I’m sick of hearing about it and I’m sick of this constant complaining from people it’s gone. For the few who need it, you have adapters. Now stop complaining because the majority of us don’t care. Bye.
