  • Canada's Rogers sees 'tremendous' demand for iPhone X, upgrades iPhone 8 status to 'good'

    I wonder if Canadians are waiting until after December 1 to buy ANY phone, as carriers will no longer be allowed to lock them as of that date?

    Apparently the carriers will also be required to unlock any previously locked device for free after that date (if I understand the new rules correctly), so it doesn't really matter when one buys it, but waiting a month eliminates the hassle.
    No,  because by the government enforcing a stupid no locking policy, all three Carriers just increased monthly fees and also added a $25 activation fee.  Now the minimum monthly plan is $105 for 1 GB of data for iPhone 8, and you still have to pay $300 upfront for the phone. 
  • Here are all the big changes to Apple Maps from 2017 through 2019

    Apple maps is just terrible.  The satelite views in my area are over 5 years old.  At least google maps is up to date.  I stopped using Apple maps about 6 months ago on my phone and sole use google maps now.   So many issues with Apple maps
  • Hong Kong legislator urges Tim Cook to put 'values over profits, pls!'

    Virtue signaling is easy PR for the fanboys and  delusional NPC out in America.  Americans are so delusional they will soak up any left wing bullshit that gets thrown their way.  But in China the rules are different so their obvious desire for big profit over value becomes very self evident, and evil.
  • Goldman Sachs exec says winning customer loyalty with Apple Card more important than profi...

    The idea is making a maximum amount of money for both companies, that the sole purpose of this credit card or credit cards in general.  Let’s stop glorifying Apple and Goldman Sachs over a subpar credit card.  If they truly care about their customers it would at least be a post paid to not incurr any debt on the consumer at all.   People and their mindless stupidity about credit cards.
  • Apple's latest app crackdown scrubs over 700 titles from Chinese App Store

    I wonder how long apple before Apple starts installing Chinese state mandated apps on its phone?  
  • Apple TV+ versus Disney+ compared -- the streaming wars escalate

    Now that I’ve read this article not sure I’m interested as much to jump in at launch anymore. The appeal for me is the backlog of movies from Fox and Disney. But for an ‘extra couple of dollars’ more? Hmmm. Apple hit the sweet spot with 1 year free with the purchase of a new device and I like $4.99 so unless the content absolutely sucks I’m in. Just not feeling the pull on this one.
    Apple shows I have seen so far are pretty bad,  bad enough I don’t feel like wasting anymore of my life watching them.  I watched “see” so far and “The Morning Show”.    Plus I don’t understand the app on Apple TV.   Is their not a separate app for it?  Seems to me it’s all jumbled in with the other content.  Some of the shows on Amazon Prime are good.
