  • Everything new in tvOS 12: Over 20 new features for Apple TV

    The most frustrating thing for me is the way most apps implement parental controls. 1st party apps like TV restrict individual shows by age rating. But most 3rd party apps either ignore parental controls (Netflix) or require a password to launch the app every time. What I want, of course, is consistency. For an app like Amazon video the kids should be able to launch the app but not access shows above a certain level. Is this an issue of lazy app developers or does Apple not make the correct APIs available?

  • Apple Watch Series 6 kills ceramic Apple Watch Edition material... again

    It's a little known fact that ceramic is incompatible with even numbers

  • Peloton cuts Apple Watch Fitness support back to just the cycling class

    CVS didn't take ApplePay, despite having the terminals, so I shopped elsewhere.
    Bought an A/C last week specifically because it had HomeKit
    Wouldn't buy a car without CarPlay.

    Question Peleton has to ask itself is "do we have no competitors or are we sufficiently special?"

  • Kingston debuts modular digital media dock with SD card, USB options

    It seems like you can't buy any more of the USB mini dock though, so you are limited to 2 ports and a bunch of card readers. This is likely because of limitations of the single upstream USB-C connection?

    What if we really made a premium product here? With a single USB-4 (Thunderbolt 4) connector there would be 40 Gb/s to share between all the ports. So could one make a dock with 4 USB-C ports and 4 USB-A ports all sharing that bandwidth (would be ok as some devices don't need much). Or are there other limits to how many ports there could be?
