  • Apple shares photos shot on iPhone XR

    How did the Eric get the shot of the leaf with the bokeh effect? I thought the iPhone XR was limited to human subjects in portrait mode. Does Apple show pictures taken from third party apps as well?

    I've been a satisfied TMO user for years. I get unlimited everything including tethering for a hundred bucks a month. I never get throttled either.

    As far as I am concerned this is great news, it just means better coverage in fringe areas
    John Legere said T-Mobile will still be magenta, and he will still be the ceo of the new T-Mobile. John continuing to be ceo takes a lot of the worry away. This is great new imo as well
  • Sprint and T-Mobile could reach merger deal by next week, report says

    I really do not want this to happen. T-Mobile is an amazing company by itself. They do a ton of pro customer moves and shouldn’t merge

  • Apple Music reaches 38M subscribers, gained 2M in last month

    I’d be curious to know the demographics of the typical AppleMusic user. I have feeling that it probably skews much older compared to Spotify, and not the coveted 15- 34 segment. For example, not one of my son’s or daughter’s friends (late teens to early 20s) — to whom I’ve pointedly asked the question about AM v. Spotify — uses AM.

    You might say that’s just two data points, but between the two of them, I’ve asked more than a dozen kids. Maybe my sample is atypical, but I doubt it.
    Interesting thought. Being a senior in High School, I have a glimpse into what it’s like. Most if not all of my classmates use Apple Music. They all tend to use family plans in which they add 6 people and split the cost down to $2.50 each. One has to pay the full $15 off monthly, obviously the most responsible. Spotify is not as popular as it was in my HS as before.
  • Apple investigating replaceable Apple Watch battery packs

    Pretty sure this be won’t happen. Apple is not famous for either customization or upgradability. 
    If apple want you to upgrade your watch, that means they want you buy a new one.
    I thought the same, but their Mac Pro is supposed to be upgradable and customizable. It could be a different direction
