  • Sandmarc releases Titanium Edition band for Apple Watch Ultra

    I had a polished stainless Juukdesign (Amazing watch bands by the way) Velo band  on my stainless Apple Watch 4 and 6. Put it on the Ultra and it contrasted too much with the titanium. I ordered a brushed stainless Juukdesign band to replace it, figuring the brushed stainless would be a closer match.  After seeing this, I'm going to return the Juuk band and pick this up. Nothing will match titanium better than titanium. I'm hoping the craftsmanship measures up. 
    Actually, why don’t you check out nomad goods at They have great quality and I picked up both are stainless steel and their titanium Apple Watch band. I think the style is much better and the titanium craftsmanship is superb.

    I have the original titanium band and the new version 2 has a magnetic clasp. So the only thing to watch out for is when you release the buckle there’s nothing holding it on your wrist so be careful as to not let it drop and hit the floor.

    I don’t know about this new company, seems like the price is right for titanium but nomads band is amazing. 
  • Apple uses Messages colors to bully Android users, says Google

    Ridiculous claim. 

    We the consumer are the only ones who can actually turn the identifying colors into a “bullying mentality”. 

    In the beginning there was only one color. Distinguishing between iMessages and a non-iMessage text became necessary as iMessages evolved. 

    In general, I think the color scheme was correct as iMessages were sent over as a “free” message that only required an internet connection while non-iMessages needed a cellular plan which cost money. 

    Blue=free message/iMessage 
    green=Cellular plan ($$$) 

    It wasn’t intended for just android users, it was a visual indicator for anything that would cost you money. 

    Green =💰 

    I appreciated the identifier. 
    To this day I have to have a plan to include SMS messages for non Apple uses. 

    If anything this is bullying. 

    What a dumb thing to suggest that Apple created this bullying mentality. 

    If anything apple solved a problem and created competition  to lower sms messaging plans. I still remember the days when was he text  messages were counted and if you went over a certain amount you were charged extra. 

    Sure, now most if not all plans include  unlimited calls and text messages, but let’s not forget that in the beginning we were all metered.

  • Apple's all-new AirPods support Spatial Audio for $179

    As Apple slowly spreads color through its entire product line, why do they insist on keeping their most personal one available only in white?
    I too would love different colors. 

    They keep it white Because they Want it to stand out in your ear and not go unnoticed. 

    I paid to have my AirPods Pro’s painted Matte black and nobody notices them in my ear. When I talk on the phone  they think I’m talking to them. 

    If they do notice it from me pointing it out, they ask which model it is assuming  it’s a Samsung or some generic model. 

    I recently lost them and  bought new “white” AirPods Pro and everyone seems see them and when I talk to someone with them in my ear  they assume I’m talking on the phone. 

    So, white does make a difference.

  • Apple will fix iPhone 13 'Unlock with Apple Watch' soon

    Hi all, please try doing this which works for me.  Back up your iphone, do a factory reset of your iPhone, restore your iphone data from your back up.  After everything has been restored, try turning on the “unlock with Apple Watch” feature again.  It should work as i just did mine and it works like a charm now.  Thanks and good luck.  There is no need to wait for apple for a resolution. 
    Youch. . .  

    Just did that when my new phone arrived. Not prepared to wait another day for 150gig+ backup and login to various apps over again to see if it fixes it. 

    There’s obviously a bug in the software.  Mine was initially working with 13 Pro Max after back up, but then a day later it stopped. 

    I will admit that this is one of the best features they implemented with the Apple Watch as it saves countless daily password entering. 

    I’ll wait for a update.
