    As always, Wall Street doesn’t care about what you did today, it’s about what it thinks you will do in the future. And the Covid-19 delta variant has thrown a monkey wrench into the financial crystal ball, all because 50% of the population are dumb, ignorant morons. There’s also a study out that reveals 1-in-5 believe the vaccines contain microchips. That means 20% of the population are certified idiots.
    Hey hotshot,  you do know that these “vaccines” are experimental and rushed out to the public with no data on long term side effects.   Do you think 50% of the population are morons because they are concerned about such things?  They dare to question about rushing to use such things instead of not even thinking about it?  That makes them morons??  2 of these so called vaccines are not even real vaccines.  There are a number of doctors who have gone public about their concerns and what they have seen going on.  I guess they are morons too?   Sadly,  there is however data on bad reactions and lingering problems after getting these vaccines.




    There's a shit ton of data about the short and long term effects of COVID-19, and now today, data showing erectile disfunction and reduced sperm production.

    I went with the "experimental vaccine Moderna" as soon as it was available, thanks very much, and thanks to the "dumb, ignorant morons", for lack of a more appropriate moniker, there is going to be a primordial soup of virus variants returning over and over again to the U.S., and the rest of the world.

    I don't particularly care if you stake your life on remaining vax free, but us vaccinated, and the medical community, are getting pretty fucking tired of having to watch the rest of you fuckers shit the bed, and expecting us to clean up after you.

    I'm now solidly behind vaccine passports, and shipping all of our excess vaccines to places around the world that will make good use of it before it expires.

    Have a nice day!
    You don't seem very knowledgeable about the covid vaccines. And you seem a bit angry. I wonder if that's a side effect of the vaccines we should be looking into..

    Anyway, I'm a physician, part of this medical community you're speaking of. Are you a part of it? (Since you seem to be speaking for it.) Many of us have a lot of concerns about the vaccines. I related a few of them in previous posts if you care to read them. But, thankfully you can rest a bit more easy. As I mentioned, over %90 of the elderly have been vaccinated, which are overwhelmingly the age group most at risk, and the vaccine (which shows efficacy against variants) is readily available for those that want it. Success!

    Why do you seem so angry? You know it doesn't make sense to blame the stock drop right after earnings on covid-19, right? It's almost like you used that as a convenient jumping off point to make some angry statements. Since you're really smart and good at judging people, I'm sure you know that the mRNA vaccine only confers partial immune response (spike proteins), thus giving the virus opportunities to evade this narrow barrier in order to create variants. Whereas people who get the virus naturally have a much much lower reinfection rate due to the broader immune response, and thus give the virus less opportunity to create variants. So, in reality, if you got vaccinated, you're part of the variant problem. The more you know.

    Anyway, I gave up on trying to make sense of AAPL fluctuations a long time ago; there's too much manipulation to be able to predict much.

  • HBO officially kills Apple TV Channels integration

    I am not am HBO subscriber and don't plan on it.  So humor me. Is there really anything compelling enough to stay on HBO if they want to make you run their app vs the customer friendly Apple TV integration?

    Since HBO is basically giving the finger to customers who want the integrated experience instead of each separate app (I assume this breaks the Siri search integration in the Apple TV all in one solution), should customers give the finger back and just drop them?
    This is all on Apple, for their crappy Apple TV app implementation that makes watching series shows a pain (doesn't keep track of where you left off right, doesn't automatically restart the next video right, etc). I don't understand why Apple can't get something so relatively simple right. I doubt it'd break siri search.

    FWIW, I'm really like HBO. It's worth subscribing just for the show Raised by Wolves (amazing sci fi), and of course game of thrones, westworld, true detective, good movie selection, etc.
    This is on Apple? HBO cancels it and it’s on Apple? JHFC what rock do these low IQ mopes come out from under? But great plug for the expensive HBO max — because If one with your non-think is endorsing it? I’d suspect stay away from HBO Max as a general rule. 

    Channels is decent. I use a third party integrated menu but that’s not for the average user. 
    And likely what this is about is HBO looking for greater control of user and probably user data. This is a game to make money. HBO is just doing what they think will help that. No shame in that. 
    AI forums never fail to be entertaining lol. But to your point, this being 'on Apple' probably wasn't fair.

    No idea what you’re on about - the Apple TV app certainly does maintain viewing state, both in-show and in-season. HBO Channel worked flawlessly, used them for years. 

    Inversely, the HBO Max app sucks eggs. The UX sucks, the promoted content mechanism sucks (hate how it plays the audio constantly despite having moved elsewhere on the screen so you can’t even see the promo but still have to listen to it), and HBO infamously broke simple scrub and rewind functionality with their non-native viewer a couple weeks ago and had to revert after the public outcry. 

    This is all on HBO, who left the channels system to push their crappy app. 
    Well, my experience is that it doesn't do a great job keeping track of things. Maybe it's from me going back and forth between the app and the Apple TV app? I think I'm also annoyed that it doesn't automatically play the next episode in the series in the Apple TV app. Not a deal breaker though by any means. Cant wait for Ted Lasso and Foundation to start.

    I definitely agree about the HBO UX sucking.
