Grocer Kroger launches QR code-based payment service, snubs Apple PaySo, I did not know, (or forgot), Kroger was one of the currenc holdouts. I hate Kroger but it’s the only place in my area with nearly reasonable prices on natural and organic foods. I’ve contacted them several times telling them they need to adopt Apple Pay, pass it on to management, the response was that they were not going to, kind of rude about it, no thanks for my interest or anything positive to say to me about it, or for contacting them.
They don’t know how to manage their stores and they don’t know how to stock limited time major sale items, I have problems with their self check out too often, and, I gave up trying to use my own bags long ago because I would always need assistance, pressing “use my own bags” never works right, ...the list goes on. When I move again, I hope I will be able to avoid Kroger.
Researchers find loophole that extends USB Restricted Mode's hour-long timertallest skil said:Wait… why can’t I quote myself?
Devices do not charge, confirmed.Leaving a device for more than an hour and then plugging it in does not activate charging. This is an all-Apple environment. iPhone 6 plugged into a 27” Cinema Display with an Apple Lighting cable, plugged into a 2009 Mac Pro. Only after it’s unlocked does the charging *ping* sound and the battery icon turn green.
Researcher demos new macOS Keychain exploit, holds data from Apple in protestThis is bogus:
1) the person trying to steal your passwords has to first have access to your Mac.
2) he then ran some app to get your passwords...I’m guessing all this app does is enter your Mac’s password for the keychain items automatically and then extracts them and displays them all in a list, so, again, back to 1).
3) you can also lock keychain so that it has to be opened with a password, so they’d need not only your Mac’s password, but keychain’s password...this is not the default for keychain.
Apple sued for allowing loot boxes in App StoreYP101 said:benji888 said:fred1 said:Here are two words for anyone who wants to limit spending on apps and can’t figure out how to place restrictions: gift cards.If you buy gift card then there is no credit cards linked to that Apple account. CVS, Walmart, Walgreen, basically every retail store selling these gift card.
if no credit/debit card is attached to an account, you can’t make any purchases, in-app or otherwise. I think very few parents will have an Apple ID account that does not have a credit or debit card assigned to it,
Editorial: The iPad Air and the iPad mini have always been Apple's best tablets“And all that the iPad mini really added to its specifications was an improved processor. It still didn't have the iPad Air 2's A8X processor, but it did have an A8.”
OMG, the biggest change to the IPad Mini with the iPad Mini 4 was the laminated, anti-reflective coated screen with the best color of any and all iPad released before it. Why do you, AI, always overlook this?
im so glad they improved the screen on the Mini 5 and didn’t dumb it down to iPad entry leve cheap non-laminated screen like so many rumors!
House Judiciary says Apple enjoys monopoly power with App StoreThis is just the kind of b.s. to lead to get Apple to open a back door. We like apple’s way of sandboxing, it is better for the consumer’s security and privacy....we know what we’re getting.
I just don’t get how Apple can be considered monopolistic when they DO NOT have a monopoly with their products.
I agree with the above, this is a distraction from things they need to be doing, and it does have to do with lobbying and money.
