  • Is Apple getting Siri-ous in the face of Amazon's Alexa Echo?

    Apple should be embarrassed by how bad Siri works. Actually doesn't work. I love saying Hey Siri what time is it in the middle of the night and Siri replying if I want to see Time magazine cover or anything else abut time magazine.

    Do whatever you want manually the first time, you're going to have to do that way anyway. I gave up doing things twice trying Siri
    Interesting! English is my second lenguage and I use Siri in English, I have an accent and siri understands me pretty well. It use to be harder the first few years but now Siri understand me about 90% of the time as long as there is not much noice.

  • Frankenphone combines (Product)Red iPhone 7 Plus with Jet Black iPhone face

    It looks UGLY.

    Red goes with a white face so much better. 
    Disagree I like the red and black combination better. Too each its own.

    That may give the platform a slight edge over Apple Pay, which requires that retailers be specifically compatible.

    I'm not sure this is correct. I don't have any trouble getting my Apple Watch working with any NFC terminal.  Did you mean that the issuing bank has to support Apple Pay?
    You haven't tried to use Apple Pay at a CVS have you? Many major retailers do not accept Apple Pay, where they do take other contactless payment methods.
    CVS is the only one I'm aware of that has specifically blocked AP on their NFC terminal. I believe they were part of the CurrenC train wreck and are too incompetent to remedy the situation. What are the others you mention?
    Home Depot did too. I used AP at Home Depot for a while and then  they found out it work there and Home Depot  block it completely on purpose 
  • Apple rival Samsung forecasts high profits despite Note 7 fires & political scandals

    This is what happens when you innovate, put out devices with the latest cutting edge technology in them, like wireless charging, fast charging, waterproofing, give customers a headphone jack, a fully customizable OS, smartwatches that will pair with any other mobile device, a VR ecosystem at a great price. All make for a winning formula. Plus make all the most important parts (screens, chipsets, memory) for the other biggest mobile phones out there too, you are gonna make some big money!
    No, I think you meant this is what happens:

    When Apple does it we get this:

    ...a top of the line, waterproof (resistant is what you meant but whatever) leading device that doesnt blow up and destroy property and which has never been banned from all aircraft for fear of killing everyone aboard. Plus a smart watch that doesnt look like a hockey puck strapped to your arm. And no gimmicks like eyeball-scrolling or VR or faulty facial recognition that has already been defeated with a simple photograph. 

    apple pay works at 11% of credit card terminals in the USA right now, Samsung pay works at 98% of credit card terminals in the USA.  Not having to carry my credit cards or wallets around ever is worth every penny.  Thank goodness i have never had any problems with overheating or fires on any samsungs I have ever owned.  I can also reach over without looking in the dark, and get my phone charging in the middle of the night by simply placing it on the charging pad on my nightstand, no fiddling for cables and finding the charging port on the bottom of my phone. and I have had that feature for 3 years NOW, i dont know how i could live without it.  I had an iphone 1 all the way thru the iphone 5 but when i took a fair and balanced look at what apple was offering and what samsung phones were offering, i had to switch to samsung and i gotta say, I have never thought of switching back once.

    If apple adds wireless charging finally to their phones, you all will see a small piece of the great features i have been enjoying for years and you will still have so many other great features you dont even realize you are missing which you will wait years for because you are "patiently waiting for Apple to do it the right way".  Good luck with that belief, i'm over here enjoying the future!
    Why do people call it wireless charging? Isn't it more like induction charging? It is still connected to a wire and it can only be charge while you are not using it. If use need it, you can't charge it. That is one of the reason I don't like this so call wireless charging that is connected to a wire. If Apple adopts this I hope they use a charger the size of the Apple Watch. Magnetic so it easily sticks to the phone, not a big plate like others use.

    HA! I still ordered one - actually two, The S8 is10 times better than an iPhone (which looks exactly like my 2007 iPod touch btw). If only Apple could innovate like this. Or should I say steal. Apple has never innovated, it only steals or buys ideas from other companies (cough Xerox, yeah, your first breath was stolen). But most Apple sheep can't understand that. I am on a quest to educate them, but it's one step at a time. Apple sheep are predominantly very simple, non-tech people. The iPhone, a simple phone for very simple users.
    You're trying to defend a company that really SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Is this konger guy for real? HTC had this back in their HTC 1. I had one of those. Samsung innovate? What an oxymoron. Is true what they say, stupid people are like dead people, only those around them know what they are.
  • Swallowed AirPod sends 7-year-old to emergency room

    Times change. AirPods, iPhones, iPads, xboxes, etc are normal gives now. Just like walkmans or blue rays were at one one point we all got something that old people said “when I was a kid” 
  • iPhone 12 lineup pricing identical across carriers after blowback over $30 difference

    I been buying through Apple and getting the Verizon version which is unlock and I just switch the sim and don’t pay any activation fee. But I buy the pro max so i guess it makes no difference. I actually had no idea there was a price difference. 
  • How Donald Trump's election as U.S. President could affect Apple

    Donal trump is not a stupid person. He doesn't have all he has for no reason. The people who follow him are stupid, but donal trump isn't. He is a very smart business man who knew how to get votes from ignorant people and the fact the he is the elected president proof he did his research and knew how to manipulate people into voting for him. Don't underestimate him, again. The funny thing is that a lot of people voted for him to try and get illegal immigrants out, and in voting for him they just put a former illegal immigrant in the White House
