  • Apple TV trails behind Roku, other TV platforms in US device sales

    Roku $35 with a good remote vs AppleTV $149 and a lousy remote. Simple decision.
  • Craig Federighi says iPadOS created because iPad is now a 'truly distinct experience'

    Or in other words, the iPad is being positioned to replace laptops.
  • Editorial: Can Apple News+ kill 'fake news' and save journalism?

    Journalism is already dead. When you see major news media outlets suppress news that favorable to President Trump, make numerous mistakes against Trump they later have to retract with less publicity, only report facts that support their side, don't report facts critical of their side, journalism is gone. Studies have already shown that Google search results favor liberal sites such as CNN even though their accuracy and quality of news reporting has been extremely poor.

    An example is with the announcement of the Green New Deal, most news media was praising it, but none have stated how much it will actually lower earth's temperature. For the US to spend something like $93 trillion and there's no critique of what you're getting for your money is irresponsible.
  • Apple calls for plaintiffs' lawyers to be kicked in iPhone throttling case

    Is that in the behind or what?
  • Apple being sued because two-factor authentication on an iPhone or Mac takes too much time...

    You can do it from your mac or even have verification code go to your Apple Watch I think. Additionally you can add a second trusted phone number for occasions such as yours when you don’t have your iPhone - even a landline, where you receive an automated call in lieu of a text verification. 
    The problem is, it's not very clear how you can configure it so you're able to use 2FA when your primary device is not available. This is not a frivolous lawsuit. Hopefully it forces Apple to improve 2FA.

    I had 2 problems with 2FA. The first was when someone took my iPhone by accident. I tried logging into the iCloud web site to findmyiphone, but it required 2FA. They have since changed that, but at the time, my only choice was to change my password. Fortunately I got it back a short time later. The other time was the other day when a charge to my wife's iTunes account was partly to store credit and part to my account (as part of the family group). I couldn't log into her iTunes account because it required 2FA going to her phone which was with her in another city. I had to wait until later in the day to check it.
