  • Musicians aren't losing out from streaming music, UK regulator says

    The irony here is that the CMA is acknowledging that "competition" doesn't just come from alternate services but also from other artists. That acknowledgment is typically totally missing from all of the controversy over app stores. You don't see the EU admitting that the number of app developers growing over time = greater competition.

  • Tim Cook wants Apple to buy Manchester United soccer team

    This sounds like a lame attempt at propping up the sale price.

  • Amazon Alexa bled $10 billion in cash in 2022

    I've said it multiple times in the past when posting to articles that claimed Alexa was "beating" Siri: Amazon's intentions with Alexa were to get customers to increase their impulse purchasing from Amazon, not to answer random questions better. And since Alexa wasn't actually effective at doing that...it was more of a failure than a success.

  • Deadly Apple Store car crash was an accident, driver claims

    I don't find it believable. Regardless of what was happening with his foot/gas pedal he still had a working steering wheel and emergency brake. IMO, someone in a panic would be more likely to attempt a hard turn away from the stores and flip the vehicle.

  • Apple Fellow Phil Schiller quits Twitter

    LeoMC said: You do know that - hopefully - in every single democratic city when you get out of your house you meet people that exercise their right to free speech?! You are saying that you would rather live in a dictatorship instead of living in a place where even the stupidest peoples are allowed (I'm not saying encouraged, I just say protected) to speak freely?
    Here's the thing: racists aren't satisfied with simply stating a personal opinion that they're superior. Historically racists are always going to try and force the people that they think are inferior into some type of oppressive system. It's not like Musk doesn't know this coming from South Africa. Apartheid? That wasn't just black people and white people having a difference of personal opinion.
