  • Apple AirPort not on latest 'Vault 7' list of gear susceptible to factory firmware hack by...

    Yes it's so true about the AirPort Extreme Router. I have never had an issue with it and it works the best. I had ATT routers that were given to me free but they were useless. I don't understand why Apple wants to eliminate such excellent hardware.

  • Microsoft is closing all of its retail stores, permanently

    The Coronavirus Pandemic was a perfect excuse for Microsoft to finally close its underperforming stores. Realistically Microsoft has never been able to compete hardware wise with its' competitors. To me the X Box is their main bread and butter for hardware. Surface is... well just Surface. It lags way behind the iPad and other Apple products. Software is their game and they do a pretty good job at that. Someone mentioned that there are a lot of people milling about in Apple stores that should not be there..I have no idea what that means. Apple stores want people to come and "mill about" to see all the products and get hands on information and physically try laptops, iPhones, iPads, and such... It's easy to make an appointment with the genius bar online, you are checked in at the front and have a location to wait until you are called. If Microsoft stores were so good and consumer friendly why did Microsoft throw in the towel and take almost a 1/2 billion dollar write off?

  • A future iPhone could lose the notch with light transmitting windows in the screen

    I have never understood the issue some individuals have with the notch? Is it so inconvenient? Is it that aesthetically horrible? I am sure that eventually the notch will disappear when Apple can successfully advance improved designs and hardware.

  • 'AirPods Pro 2' rumored to launch Q3 2022

    6 hours extended battery life would be nice. I currently get 4 hours before I use the case to recharge. Other than that I love the sound and the noise cancellation quality of the Pros.

  • Apple axes Wi-Fi router division, apparently signaling the end of AirPort

    I am starting to question Apple's Management... Their router has been the best in my opinion with my Apple products. Friends of mine have switched over because of the crappy other routers. MacBook Pros with no USB.. no slots for pics... Now this... and I have been seeing Rumors that Apple might discontinue the MacBook Air... Not the customer friendly company that I have known as an Apple supporter and user for 30 years... Maybe top management changes are needed to right the ship....
