  • Apple issues AirPort Express firmware update adding support for AirPlay 2

    What are the chances of the appletv 2 getting an update for airplay 2?  That would make my entire multi-room setup airplay 2 compatible without buying anything.

  • New Apple Watch Series 6 ads highlight Apple's Health features

    These ads are a little creepy in my opinion. Love my watch though and it’s health tracking is a huge reason why.

  • Intel takes aim at Apple, instead shoots itself in the dongle

    I hope it wakes the morons at Apple up.
    My 2020 Mac Book pro barely qualifies as pro.
    A "pro computer" that I need a dongle to hook up to an external projector, monitor or ethernet.
    A pro computer that ditched the brilliant mag safe power cable.
    A pro computer than no longer allows me to stick an SD card in it.
    A pro computer that requires a dongle to connect a USB A jump drive- the industry standard way of walking files.

    And- they gouge me on the price of RAM, Storage by 3 to 10x what everyone else charges.
    With no user replaceable parts- and barely serviceable.

    And that was my Intel machine.
    Now- my M1 MacMini- can't connect to my Drobo- which is a 72 TB paperweight.
    Gee - thanks Apple.
    Just curious- do you not research your purchases based on your workflow and needs? Pretty sure all those limitations to your current workflow weren’t surprises.
