  • Epic Games CEO slams Apple 'government spyware'

    Why are people so up in arms about this?  If you have nothing to hide why are you fighting Apple’s attempt to make the world safer from criminals and sick people?   This “ceo” made the amazingly stupid comment about “presumption of guilt”?   Well,  at least in the United States a person is innocent until proven guilty.   

    I’m frankly amazed by the feedback in this forum in the last few days,  people who trust and love Apple and now don’t want to help Apple try to make the world safer.  

    If you work for any large company I hope you know that any email, chat messages and files on company computers can be looked at and scanned by security and network admins.

    if you want total privacy,  get rid of cloud storage and maybe go back to using a typewriter LOL

    Apple does not want their products used for crime and is making an attempt to do something about it - what is so hard to understand?

  • New 5G iPhone SE with dual-lens camera in 2022, ProMotion in 'iPhone 13' display analyst s...

    Does anyone have the current SE 2020? Any good? 
    A friend of mine has one, and he says the 5G sucks ass unless you turn off LTE.  With LTE on he was getting less than 2 mbps, and with it off, he'd get 30 or more.  Quite a difference.  The area in which he lives has quite solid 5G support otherwise, and his kids' LTE phones work just fine, so it doesn't appear to be an LTE problem.

    I have no idea how widespread that problem is, but he claims to have seen "quite a few complaints" online from other people with the same problem.
    Not sure what you mean.  I really don’t think the current iPhone SE has 5G ability.  Unless you are looking at the misleading and absurd 5Ge logo that shows up that AT&T has been doing and what’s worse maybe that Apple has put up with it,  even now in iOS 14

  • Apple objects to app's pear logo trademark application

    Objectively and geometrically speaking, the leaf design is way too similar and it’s on the same side. Also, its angle is similar, only mirrored. Apple does have a bit of a leg to stand on here, I’m afraid.

    And no, I’m not (just) a fanboy, but a future PhD in design, and even an undergrad with a keen eye would spot the similarities right away… This isn’t much different from spotting plagiarism in typography, you just have to overlay the curves and see how well they match. Do you want me to?
    If you and Apple lawyers are upset about the Leaf part of the graphic,  that is truly sad.  So, in other words, no other company in the world can now have a tiny bit of whatever logo they have include such a leaf.  WOW.    It does not take a PHD to see that this is BS.  The color they are using is green as well,  does Apple have a problem with that too??

  • Apple's Director of Machine Learning exits over return-to-office policy

    What a great time for apple to turn this into a win for itself, it’s employees and the general workforce. Apple should say, “hey, losing all these good employees bcoz we can’t budge on our RTW Policy isn’t worth it, so maybe we can compromise…”

    seems to me perhaps apple (and business in general) doesn’t trust their employees integrity much. Maybe it’s time to let go of that extremely outdated work ethic. I think we’re seeing the American workforce has had a taste of what a real “work/life balance,” actually looks like and they really like it. Good for company moral and good for employee production and ultimately good for the company. 
    “Work/life balance” ?   LOL -  staying at home and not going into the office for the last 2 years is hardly a balance.  More like an imbalance.  There seems to be this work at all crazy hours of the day, now more than ever.  I frequently get up and check company email only to find people sending emails after 8pm and even way later at night.  I find it pretty pathetic to think people are working 12 hour days as being the norm today.  Absolutely pathetic, more to life than staring at work.

    in addition, have seen a number of people who used to work in office are now more out of shape and put on weight.

    One word: BATTERY. He committed battery. I wonder if those close to you would agree with your “men can no longer be men” dribble. By far the dumbest statement ever. Please stay single your entire life. 
    Thank you so much for your insult.  Obviously you are much better than me. 

    Based on your logic, should Will Smith now get divorced and stay single the rest of his life?   He apologized and he stopped at
    the slap.  It was not even a punch.  It’s over.  I feel that the other guy Chris Rock is just as much to blame with his atrocious idea of what humor is.

  • Apple's iPhone 13 selling better than past lineups -- with one exception

    So, the news continues about how awful sales were for the mini…. That makes it seems so exclusive to have one LOL.   I really enjoy mine and don’t care.   When I got rid of my 8 plus, I looked at the current iPhone pro max and how big and heavy they are.  They are even bigger and heavier than the 8 plus.  If you want to walk around with a “brick” go ahead.  Phones just seem to keep getting bigger and bigger and heavier and heavier,  at what point does it stop?   Then,  add the weight of case onto it..  could the name “mini” been a bad choice or matter that much?  What if they called it iPhone Stealth for example or something much cooler than “mini”,  would that have helped sales?  The screen on the mini is plenty big enough,  perhaps the 5.8 sized screen was the best size yet, which they did on the iPhone X.   But the
    mini remains a great phone that nobody wants. I wonder what Jobs would think of the ever increasing phone sizes that are the norm today.

  • Apple hides job titles of ex-employees, reclassifies them all as 'associates'

    Well,  I think being called an associate is 100 times better than being called a “resource”.  It makes me cringe when I hear management at companies refer to people as “resources”. It sounds demeaning,  as if a “resource” is like a light bulb that can be switched out or more brought in for example.    I would never refer to an employee as a resource.  It sounds so impersonal and disengaged from anything that resembles a team

  • New Apple 'Mac Studio' may fit in between Mac mini and Mac Pro

    This could be exciting.  Whatever it is, hope it has plenty of usb-a and usb-c ports.  Also give us an SD card slot and I’m happy.  An analog headphone jack would be a bonus too.
