  • Dead Apple employee identified as 25-year-old software engineer, report says [u]

    This seems like a topic that shouldn't even be open for comments.

  • Apple to launch 'Today at Apple' retail sessions in late May [u]

    FYI, the fine print at the end of the press released indicates some of this is only coming to select stores. I'm assuming the mall stores that haven't been redesigned yet will be the last to get some of this stuff.

    Seriously!?

    If I were Apple I would start revoking developer accounts for developers who promise things they clearly know is against the rules. Sorry, but ANY developer who’s serious about developing for iOS WOULD HAVE READ the contract and UNDERSTOOD what is or isn’t possible. And getting your fan base worked up in a tizzy should be an immediate cancellation of your developer account.

    The guidelines have been in place since day one, in fact they’ve become more relaxed since then. There’s no reason ANY developer should attempt to step beyond those rules and hope for the best. Unless they think they can rally their fan base and try to force it. As I said, in that case, cancel their developer account. 
    Exactly. They knew that they were cheating, but they did it anyway. No surprise that the app got booted.

    Apple curates the hell out of these apps. Nobody curates nearly as good as Anple. Google is a joke.
    So how was this app approved in the first place? App reviewers at Apple are morons?

  • Apple calls for lower-than-expected Q2 guidance on iPhone sales miss

    Btw guidance of 60-62B would mean YOY revenue increase of 14-17% Wall Street’s 65B would be a 24% increase. I believe the last time Apple reported a YOY increase that high was the March 2015 quarter with 27%. What is Wall Street basing its 65B on?

  • Apple debuts $999 iPhone X with OLED Super Retina Display & Face ID authentication

    I’m seeing techies on Twitter saying they’re not blown away by iPhone X.  So what exactly would blow them away?

  • Editorial: Bloomberg spins Apple's Event as a desperate, blind stab for cheap iPads in edu...

    Listen to Rene Ritchie’s recent Vector podcast with Bradley Chambers. Apple has work to do in the education sector. DED can spin all he wants but Chromebooks and Google’s G Suite are winning in the classroom. Probably one reason why Apple is having an education focused event. I actually don’t expect hardware to be announced at this event. My guess is it will be software focused.

    We don’t know what really happened. We have Apple’s words against Valve’s. But what we do know (and what I suspected all along) is this went to the highest levels of Apple leadership.

  • New HomePod, 'AirPods 2,' death of 3D Touch all expected in 2019

    More controversially, it is "widely understood" by the supply chain that the iPhone lineup in the fall of 2019 will lack 3D Touch. Barclays notes that the plans are not finalized, so the feature may appear, and it may not. It isn't clear why a future iPhone would lack the feature, given that it works fine on the iPhone X.
    Bullshit. Can you guys please stop reporting every thought some sell side analyst vomits out? Apple suppliers aren’t going to leak plans to Wall Street analysts (and that’s assuming they even know what those plans are).

    Right on cue a couple weeks before earnings. Somebody needs the stock to drop.

  • Apple's MacBook butterfly switch keyboards target of second class action complaint

    This won't cost Apple that much. They calculate these things, and free warranty repairs would probably have cost a lot more than what they can settle this case for.
    How about they make keyboards that aren’t faulty? Isn’t a reason people pay a premium for Apple products because their build quality is the best?
