Apple turns on HomePod's smoke alarm recognitionjeromec said:"Apple turns on HomePod's smoke alarm recognition"...has anyone actually been able to turn it on?
Does it work with iOS16.4.1 or does it require iOS16.5, currently in beta?
There is not even a source for the info in the article!
Note: After restarting both my HomePod and my iPhone the “Safety and Security” option disappeared. The Home App reports “This home and all accessories are up to date”. Go figure.
Let’s see what tomorrow brings
LockBit ransomware is now targeting Macs for the first timeWell, as usual, the user would likely have be to tricked into downloading and installing the package. Or it could be included in a pirated version of some popular software. So let's face it, all this stuff still relies ton the gullibility and greed of certain users. It’s not a self-replicating or self-installing virus of yesteryear that can take your system on its own.
Be vigilant, don’t steal, use common sense. If it sounds too good to be true it likely is.
Mac shipments collapse 40% year over year on declining demandelijahg said:I suspect price is a factor. The base 14” MBP with M2 Pro for example is an amazing machine, but it is also expensive. RAM/SSD upgrades are also laughably overpriced.The M1 iMac is 3 years old now, and still no sign of any updates. Who wants to pay the same price for a 3 year old machine as they would when it was introduced? And the Mac Pro? Yet again after promises of it not being abandoned and promises of the 2 year Apple Silicon transition, it’s been 4 years with zero updates and a year past the 2 year timeline - and the same same base price. It’s not like Apple lacks the engineering resources to keep these up to date.Macs are the best, but there’s only so far people will stretch to buy the best - and for that price, they don’t want something that’s got 3 years less lifetime.
Give it rest, haters.
There is a big interest in an iPhone Fold, well ahead of any launchDAalseth said:There is a big interest in an iPhone FoldNo not really. There is interest from the bleeding edge technorotti. there is interest from tech writers. I see little interest in a phone with a crease in the middle of its screen from anyone else. Certainly not at the silly prices that keep getting thrown around.
