  • Apple releases ECG Apple Watch app in Australia

    Is there any way to update the article to reflect which countries now support ECG, like what you used to do with countries and banks adding ApplePay support?  Is Australia the 5th country or the 50th to support the ECG app? 
    You can find all of that info here:
  • Apple confirms fix to series box set playback issues on Apple TV app is coming

    I’ve been complaining to Apple for years that their approach to TV box sets makes no sense.

    They should mirror the movie bundle approach where buying the bundle actually registers as buying “x” number of movies at the same time. Surely, it’s not rocket science to create pages in the iTunes Store which enable the sale of multiple TV Show playlists? At the end of the day, a TV Season registers as a video playlist in iTunes (Apple TV app).

    Apologies for going slightly off topic here, but I’ve been waiting for a story about titanium in order to post a query to my fellow AI denizens. 

    Does anybody out there own a Series 5 in titanium? If so, how was your experience with it? How has it held up after 2 years? Does the finish really scratch as easily as the keyboard warriors online like to claim? Was it worth the extra $$? Would you purchase another one in the future? 

    I’m torn over whether to upgrade my aluminum 5 to SS or titanium this fall…and I try to avoid my local Apple Store as much as possible, as the experience there is always terrible, so I don’t have any actual exposure to them to base my decision on. I know AI readers will give their honest opinions, but please limit them only to people that actually own the titanium models. 
    I had the Series 5 Edition in Titanium for about 11 months before selling it on in order to upgrade to the S6 Hermès. At the time, the buyer remarked how pristine the titanium looked, and he was very happy w/ his purchase from me.

    So, from my own experience - no - the Titanium does not scratch as easily as some suggest, and in sunlight, the brushed finish of the Titanium diffuses sunlight to an almost SS-like level, making it a fine looking accessory.

    On my Stainless Steel Hermes, I am constantly aware of the possibility of micro abrasions but 10 months in it’s holding up well.
