  • Satechi launches new space-saving dual laptop stand

    "Its gold-plated connector provides an uninterrupted viewing experience"? 

    Good Lord. No. Please, no.

    The gold plating magically makes the 1s and 0s flow more accurately? It prevents "interruptions"? No it doesn't. It does nothing of the kind.

    Please, AppleInsider. We all get enough of this idiocy elsewhere; let's not spread it here, too.
  • The metaverse is 'off limits' on Apple's VR headset, claims report

    If the rumors about this is true, Apple would be smart to reconsider about getting in the Metaverse. They will be left behind.
    Yeah. That's what's going to happen: the world's most visionary company is going to be "left behind" by the superior wisdom of the guy who built a company out of his teenage-incel fantasy.
  • Whistleblower casts doubt on Apple's claims that it doesn't silence employees

    Anyone else getting a bit weary of complaints that seem to be supported by Cher Scarlett and...basically nobody else and no other evidence?

    Also, asking someone to sign an NDA does not equate to "silencing" them. This should be blatantly obvious from the get-go, right? But in this case it's even more blindingly obvious: she refused to sign, and here she is complaining to her heart's content.

    So perhaps I am just dim or obtuse, but I'm having trouble seeing what the actual problem is, here. She wants to be an Apple critic, she apparently planned to be an Apple critic starting about fifty milliseconds after getting hired by Apple, and, lo and behold, here she is being an Apple critic, unhindered. Great. Have at.
  • Apple claps back at 'secret' app ad purchase claims, says supports more than 100 apps

    Forbes is now so right wing it can’t report the truth any more. 
    In point of fact, Forbes has never been very good at reporting on tech. It's not just political bias; they lack fundamental cluefulness and they obviously lack a good tech editor.
  • Tom Hanks film 'Finch' sets Apple TV+ film premiere record

    Watched it, and found it to be a complete waste of time. The story/plot was non-existent. It’s like they thought if they just showed Hanks for 2 hours that it’d mean it’s a good movie. 2 hours and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what the point of the story was. How are there literally only 3 characters in the entire move (and only one of which was an actual HUMAN) and we had absolutely ZERO character development!?
    Cool story, bro. But you might have skipped over the part where an intelligent life form was literally created by the hand of man, and then movingly evolved to embody its creator. I, for one, count that as character development.
