  • Sprint and T-Mobile could reach merger deal by next week, report says

    My vote is that TMo buys Sprint.** Then it stays TMo and they just add TMo radios onto all Sprint towers and slowly phase out all legacy Sprint, well, pretty much everything.  I'd be pretty happy with any additional coverage that could bring as long as they don't change anything else about the company.  I'm a fan of TMo since I switch over a year ago.

    **Not that anyone at either company care about my vote.
  • Apple's second-generation AirPods with health tracking features coming first half 2019

    I am kind of surprised at the comment about waiting till Apple adds silicon. I’ve been happy with my AirPods, and I realize that they are not a good fit for everyone, but there are so many third party accessories for the AirPod. I think that there are a lot of options to help have them fit. I am personally waiting till the 2nd generation, but if fit is your concern, you may want to look at the huge 3rd party accessories market for the AirPod. I looked and tried some out. There are probably 1/2 a dozen products to help with fiting. Maybe a little gross, but I find that after a little sweating or a wet willy, they stay put without the accessories. I have only thought of getting over the ear clips and maybe a leash. 
    The problem with third party ones is that the case fits the airpods so tightly that you have to remove most of the accessories to charge them.   That's a pain in the butt and why I have stuck with my Bose Soundsport Wireless Free buds.  They sound superior to the air pods and stay in my ears, but they are much more bulky (both the buds and the case) and continue to drain the battery even when in the case.  I like everything about the air pods, but the fit.
  • Apple TV 4K won't play 4K YouTube videos because of missing Google codec

    C'mon, Apple. Do the needed negotiations/due diligence to make sure things play nice with at least the top handful of software partners that your users really use, before releasing a major software update.

    Btw, in my organization, people have been told to not upgrade to iOS11 because it cannot send mail via Outlook/Exchange. Quoting from the memo, "...An error appears stating "Cannot Send Mail. The message was rejected by the server." Apple is working to resolve this, and expects a fix soon. [XYZ] recommends NOT upgrading to this version of iOS at this time."

    Hmmm...I have multiple IOS 11 devices deployed using security profiles installed via an MDM server in our organization to access mail (sending and receiving) on an Exchange 2013 server and it appears to be working flawlessly. Just providing anecdotal evidence that it isn't failing to work with Exchange in all organizations.  It is possible your company's config is causing the issue.
