  • Apple removes fake review identifier from App Store following Amazon complaint [u]

    Apple should not have to host any app they don't like in their app store.

    Apple should not be allowed to prevent me from installing any app I like on MY iPhone.

    There's a very simple solution here.  Apple MUST be forced to allow device owners to install software from any source they choose.  It's the same issue in the Epic case, I would never suggest that Apple should be forced to host Epic's software, but if Epic wants to distribute software outside of Apple's app store, any mechanism Apple uses to prevent that is clearly and blatantly an illegal abuse of their monopoly of the iOS software market.

    It's time for antitrust law to come down HARD on Apple.
    You brought the wrong device. Please return the where you purchased abs ask for refund because owner is not from this planet.

  • Apple Arcade has shifted to focus on games with higher 'engagement'

    Apple Arcade was a breath of fresh air. My son loves his iPad and as a treat he gets to play anything he likes, after being good and doing his reading etc 

    All those reasonable games with crazy costs for coins and video plays as adverts were a nightmare.
    Apple Arcade removes all that shit for a reasonable cost.  He does not care AAA multiplayer games he wants to enjoy and hopefully learn puzzle solving and hand eye  skills.  My days a game was loaded and you play it no extra costs. 

    Maybe Apple has all the stats which will help the
     develop the platform for the better.  Giving it a chance is worth waiting for. To me it’s more value than AppleTv+ which I’m sure they spent a lot more on.

  • Lewis Hamilton hopes Apple TV+ documentary has a 'positive impact'

    A wok prat given all the benefits handed on a plate. And pays no 🇬🇧  taxes by pissing off to foreign shores. Ask about his VAT payments. Not the role model anyone should be endearing too. A prize one. 
    Sadly one reason I’ll not bother with Apple TV+ which I was contemplating this month. 
    Let’s see if any mention of the 2021 world champions is made during the documentary.
  • Niantic to shut down 'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' AR game

    I’m I alone and the words. “Who cares” springs to mind. 
    If anyone purchased the game I’d be so looking to get a refund if recently parted with your hard earned $$
  • 5G iPhone launch unlikely to be 'massive event,' AT&T executive says

    I’m an expat living in China. And it’s fair to say 5G is the normal here, all providers just put your account to 5G no cost difference,  whilst it’s not mm wavelength I fail to see why I would need to download a Movie in 3seconds.  5G benefits are more about latency and responsive internet.  
    WiFi everywhere if you desperately need to download an App.

    Apple have to deliver here or be left out in the upgrades for year end. That’s Chinese New Year mass purchase rush.  And expect a bigger uptake as huawei  will run out of SoCs processors for their flagship phones :smiley: 

  • Apple's top exec in South Korea departs amid dispute over App Store

    Closing down App Store for a country can’t be so hard for apple. Just tell everyone just select the closest store to your country. I don’t think the government can actively block the servers of apple.
    I reside in China all my devices are UK apple store there is zero Issues with me downloading anything I need which is banned here.

    Samsung I’m sure had it’s dirty hands at swinging government in this respect.

    Buy Epic so you get multiplayer game,studio and streaming game market plus no court fight.
    All you would do is make people richer and then they go and make another studio as equal. I don’t think that would go down well with anyone.  But I bet that was put in the apple table at some time if other.
    Epic is just a minor diversion for the apple juggernaut. 
  • Smooth switching between AR and VR could be big Apple headset feature, says Kuo

    Why is an analyst an expert in products. We entertain this moron and his BS not worth the pixels it’s rendered on. Instant swipe past anything with his name. 
    Words like “could be”. And “suggested” are irrelevant and hearsay, leading etc. I let you all be the jury in this one.
