  • iPhone 11: How Apple makes tech of the future affordable

    I made an account just to say EVERY DED headline I see here is utterly ridiculous. I always get a good laugh out of them, I could never waste time on the articles though. That's all, I won't comment ever again. 
    Can’t handle the truth, eh?

  • Apple TV+ launches on November 1, for $4.99 per month

    $5 is tenable. But note the weasel words "starting at." Bet the 4K sub is more. Way more.
    I was listening to Cook when he announced the price and he said nothing of the sort. This article also states that new iPhone or Apple TV purchases get 1 year free but again I was listening to Cook and he included iPads and Macs. MacRumors’ live feed confirms this so I have no idea where AppleInsider is getting its information but it is WRONG.

    Here I go again with my fanboy response. I don’t expect anything from the AppleInsider/MacRumors/9to5Mac crowds but “meh”, “disappointing”, “boring”, “no thanks”, “fire Tim Cook”, “Apple didn't do what I told them they had to do so they’re doomed”, “no innovation”, “I’ll wait another year”, “no 5G so failure”, the list goes on. Anyone want to challenge my predictions?
    I'm a little less pessimistic. While the usual 1-post-wonders will show up to rage out & leave, and the other-brand FUD dispensers will drop some pellets, for the most part I believe AI has a good base of enthusiasts who recognize the value of the products offered. 
    Well, the one silver lining in the cloud is that the market pays absolutely no attention to these clowns... or to fanboys like me. Tech blog comment sections are completely  useless and irrelevant when it comes to the real market forces.  Apple knows its customers and really doesn’t care what some asshole posts in a tech blog. That crowd has been trying to take Apple down for over forty years now and have nothing to show for it. Nowadays, however, we have the disgruntled “Steve is dead and so is Apple” “community" that is obsessed with nostalgia for the past.

    Oh wait, the vent is starting. Bye
