maestro64 said:Not that I pay interest on CC, but 13% is not that low even with good credit history. My main card is only 7.5% and I had the card for 20 yrs now. I thought Apple said they would be offering low competitive interest rates.
find plenty with 0% as an introductory rate but even with great credit there are only a few cards (very few, like USSA) that offer under double digit interest. I say this as someone in the credit card industry so I know what our & our competitors offers are.
I’m a big gamer and huge lover of all things Apple BUT mobile gaming doesn’t hold a candle to console gaming right now. Even the experiences available on a portable, dedicated gaming device like the Switch provides deeper & larger gaming experiences. If we’re just talking graphics, phones/tablets are getting closer but still a generation behind. More PS3/360 comparable than anything close to a PS4/Xbox One. I own 2 Apple TVs (4K & 4th gen) and play zero games on either. Initially sprung for MFi controllers because I was excited about the prospects of gaming on the ATV. Games are just shallow and more like “time killers” than they are meaty experiences like Breath of the Wild, Horizon: Zero Dawn or Sea of Thieves.
I’ve been a T-Mobile customer for the last 3 years and was with Sprint for 4 years before that. Prior to both I had AT&T for years & years. I think both providers have closed the gap on AT&T when it comes to coverage. Sprints speeds still leave a lot to be desired but hard to argue with thier prices. I think this will end up being good for everyone.
I work for a major credit card company and we get some many calls at tax time. People wanting to discourse charges because they fell for this scam and bought hundreds of dollars of iTunes gift cards. I personally spoke with a lady who bought $2,500 worth and there was nothing that could be done. And yes, nearly all of them were elderly.
I kind of have mixed feelings on this one. While I don’t need/want more government involvement in these types of things, it’s very frustrating to download an app for my kids just to see it’s an ad-fest. I’m not concerned about them buying stuff since my password is required for all purchases and I have IAP turned off on their iPads, but it makes for an awful experience. Every few seconds they are whisked out of the app & into the App Store to buy something or download a related app. Then they come to me “I don’t know what happened. Can you get me back to the game?” it’s garbage. Feels sleazy, especially when it’s something supposedly made for pre-schoolers. Wouldn’t mind something being done.
