So, she said she wants the discussions between her and Apple recorded in writing, and Apple didn't say no, or yes, just went off and assumed she didn't want to participate in that discussion (about IP). The next thing, is she was fired and access cut off. That is the point of contention here. Honestly doesn't look good for Apple, if this is true.

So I always avoided buying Apple merchandise from Best Buy after that. What I do buy there are the adapters since I usually need them quickly.
Best Buy is the electronic equivalent to Guitar Center.AI_lias said:I admire Apple for having the cajones, before anyone else in the industry did, to leave behind people who still want to charge their phones at the same time as listening to the headphones (whether phone calls or music), and having yet another worry in the back of their mind about the battery lasting until they're done, or carrying and plugging in an adapter. Only Apple was in a position to do this, no one else could have pulled it off.
Get out of here with your media-inspired BS.
I hate how suddenly everyone listens to music while iPhone charges. I don't remember anyone doing that uncomfortable, tangled, 2-wire practice before iPhone removed the jack.
Reminds me of a stupid youtube video that said iPhone made your wired headphones junk. They literally said that.....

Apple Watch unlocking of my Mac works very inconsistently. Can't depend on it. I never know when it will work and when it will not. I'm happy when it does work, and when it doesn't I have no idea why. Meanwhile, for my work computer, I use WIndows Hello which is not perfect but overall works very well. I know there were some cases where security researchers were able to trick it. But if you look at the risk/convenience analysis, its worth it, and it's here and now, not sometime in the future.

This is the kind of leak Apple was warning about. Knowing that an updated Mac mini will come out within a few months, with faster processor and more than 2 TB ports, will hurt the consumer. People will put off their purchases, and it will rob them of the joy and surprise they would otherwise experience during the Apple event announcing it. And the Apple event announcing it will rob them of the joy of not being able to purchase it on the day of, but having to wait maybe a few weeks for the actual release. Please stop these leaks, spare a thought for the consumers.
Good news, to right the wrong done by Apple by crippling these to only one external monitor. They should have also gone further and include inputs for two computers, so you can switch between two connected computers. It's surprising there's no good solution out there for TB or USB switching between two computers and one dock.
