  • Apple says Mississippi 'religious freedom' bill 'empowers discrimination'

    An open letter is a good gesture, but if they really want to make a statement, Apple and other big companies would threaten to leave the states in question.  What better way to say FU than to take away tax revenue.  Since most conservative states want the US to be run 'like a business', why not speak the language of business.

  • Pinky torture: Why the iPhone SE is a one-handed wonder, and the iPhone 6s is not

    I have the same grip as Neil even on the 5s and before. That pinky grip is useful when thumb typing texts. If you grip it as he showed with the SE, it's fairly difficult to thumb type because the keyboard is so much lower than the sweep of your thumb. I'm getting an SE but I know it's still not as ideal as the 3.5" screen iPhones.

    single handed use is for a much more casual use case, but is also useful in many situations. Think about public transit. If you have to stand on the train or bus you will need to grip something with one of your hands. Maybe you have a bag from shopping in one hand?  There are any situations where ergonomic single handed use is a necessity.
  • Apple's new iPhone SE lags siblings in sales as 9.7" iPad Pro performs well, analytics data says

    Silico said:

    Despite this issue with the data, I'm not surprised by slow sales of the SE.  My impression is that relatively few potential buyers are excited by improved specs - its an exciting new design that most people can't wait to purchase - and we sure didn't get that with the SE.
    I'm one of those few that would "downgrade" from my iP6.  I am disappointed that the SE doesn't have the barometer, 5mp FaceTime camera, and 128gb storage.  I'm also disappointed that they didn't updated the form-factor, since i didn't really care for the 5/5s design, and the limited Apple accessory options for cases.  But, i'm getting one anyway because i want a smaller phone. And based on my post above, my girlfriend also wants the SE for the same reason.  So there's at least a two more people that want one but couldn't get one because of such low stock.
