  • NFT firms say Apple rules make the App Store 'impossible'

    Isn’t crypto like legalized gambling? Stock market companies don’t appear to be complaining so suck it up and pay to use Apple products.

  • Facebook sued over illegal collection of user data

    I finally got my renewal for the iOS (only?) AI subscription so I don't get ads but it doesn't apply to AI forums so I still get garbage ads on my iPhone even though I'm paying to not get them. Using Safari's tracker capability on my iMac, this forum page has three trackers: doubleclick.net, google-analytics.com, and googletagmanager.com. Using Duck-duck-go's privacy essentials, it shows a B+ rating, tries not load some google things but still loads others. I honestly don't believe there's a way to stop any website from loading at least some trackers.

    Tried to delete them on my iMac.


    Still allowed these.

  • Update to iOS 16.0.1 on your new iPhone 14 before you do anything else

    This is definitely an embarrassment to the dev and test teams because they failed to catch these bugs prior to release.
    They did catch it prior to the phone's release. That is how they have the update ready on the day the phone is being arriving to the public. 
    True and it isn't the first time it's happened. Products are manufactured in bulk to be ready for the millions who buy them on day 1. This isn't done in one day, I bet the iPhones have been sitting ready for delivery for at least a few weeks and software is constantly updated. This is a non-issue and will be taken care of during startup. I'm actually surprised it was only a few little items they needed to fix.

    A bug that prevents activation is a significant fuck up.
    True but I read the Apple post and it only talks about Messages (why still using iMessage??) and FaceTime activation, not the activation of the entire phone.

    "iMessage and FaceTime might not complete activation on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro."

    This would be a pain but everything else appears to be working.
