  • Apple may face even higher iPhone taxes, import restrictions in India market

    JWSC said:
    The epic economic mismanagement of the Indian economy continues.  Apple needs to keep expectations low here for the foreseeable future.

    I wonder what council member Rathin Roy uses for his personal mobile phone?  Just wondering if it’s a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ scenario.
    Hey JWSC, I was curious too, so I used the Echofon twitter app and you can see that he uses Twitter for iPhone. 

    Hypocrisy has a name, it appears to be Rathin Roy.  

    I’ve attached a screenshot.
  • Editorial: Free advertising for Apple Card isn't coming from unit sales or market share

    Another brilliant article by DED. Can't wait for the RogAndroidFans of the world to come up with a new excuse as to why they have a problem with this article or anything DED writes. Keep up the great work, Daniel! Looking forward to the "Corrections" tearing the haters a new one when you slam their inanities with common sense, facts, honesty and honour.
  • Apple's iPad loses out to Huawei in Chinese tablet sales slump

    As Daniel Eran Dilger has explained time and again, IDC numbers ain’t worth diddly squat. Lkrupp above makes salient points.

    The report also states Apple captured 35.1% of the available Q1 market in China, even though China’s Q1 was ravaged by coronavirus

    Who is anyone trying to kid? These are great results. To try and spin this as a negative is asinine. 
  • Apple finally kills vestigial Dashboard in macOS Catalina

    The screenshot you have in the article shows Launchpad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What is the screenshot supposed to show? It shows a ? for the Dashboard icon. 

    There is no Dashboard anymore, so what were you expecting to see?
  • Editorial: Apple's WWDC 2019 was far more than just the Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR

    Brilliant article and absolutely spot on. Can’t wait for July to arrive during which the public betas will arrive, too - which I’m be installing immediately! :-)
  • Apple execs say iPadOS 15 helps users to multitask with UI changes

    When I saw the multitasking demo, it seemed complicated and not at all intuitive. I would not be able to repeat what I saw without a lot of experimentation. I think much of the success of Apple products has come from their ability to make things that work the way you’d expect them to, and knowing when less is more in terms of functionality. Simple elegance. I recognize the desire to add functionality to make the products more powerful/useful, and I know it gets progressively more difficult to add functionality without sacrificing ease of use, but that’s the genius that has so often distinguished Apple from their competitors (until they all copied it, and eventually we all accepted the solution to the problem as obvious). 
    You must have been watching a different demo to me. I thought the news system is fantastic. I have iOS 15 dev beta installed, and it rocks. 
  • Apple releases ECG Apple Watch app in Australia

    JosephAU said:
    Wasn’t it realised 2 updates ago??
    Yes, this arrived in Watch OS 7.4 and was HUGE news for Apple Watch-owning Aussies at the time. 

    What’s new now except for some statements from people quoted?

    can we please get an answer on why this is being reported as new news when this was reported by AI in April 20, 2021?

  • Apple channels Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' to sell iPad-based freedom

    Well the ad is stealth 'truthful' - you can only use an iPad outside like that if it is overcast - in bright sunlight they are unusable.
    I'm not having a problem, but then I don't set up my iPad outdoors so that it reflects the sun, either. I can actually position where I sit outdoors! Amazing!!

    Maybe you should get your eyes checked. Or discover these things called "trees" and "overhangs" that generate this new technology called "shade."
    Exactly. Bob’s attempt to throw shade on the iPad is about as successful as those Irish astronauts deciding to land on the sun and saying they can do so safely because they’ll land at night. 
  • The 'Checkm8' exploit isn't a big deal to iPhone or iPad users, and here's why

    Gordon Kelly is sure to barf up another anti-Apple article soon enough. 
  • The TextBlade keyboard is superb, but you'll have to be patient


    The technique is basically “When caught doing wrong things, blame your target.”

    Please stop doing this.

    Yes, Waytools_Support; please stop doing this. Please stop twisting everything into an attack on you, as if it was meant to absolutely destroy you or something. Before pressing the post button, it struck me that I could substitute your name for Scotsman as a joke, because, let's face it, it's is very funny - and I wondered who would notice. 

    What a surprise, it was you, hurt at the insinuation that you're clearly no true Knighton, otherwise we obviously wouldn't be here, would we, Mark?

    Give me a break, you take it all so seriously, which is a bigger joke than the way you treat your customers. 

    You are the one who has let all of US down, remember?

    You respond only when the truth hurts too much, and your responses drip with such unjustified indignation!

    How about you drop the BS, drop the pretence, drop the fake “woe is me”, drop the “it would be nice if there were no attacks and people stopped holding my sorry backside to account”, and how about you respond to post 993?

    Can you give us some real info rather than your pretend offence taking before post 1000?

    The world is waiting. June approaches ever closer. 

    Post 993. Answer it.
