  • Aspyr ends 32-bit Mac game sales in shift to 64-bit support only

    Apple should provide a 32-bit VM (virtual machine) for macOS Catalina.
  • Apple to block third-party access to Notes field in Contacts with iOS 13

    I ask for field level security for years!  Not just Note field! The small improvement is not enough.

    There should be multiple Contacts lists, not just one. Categories do not serve the purpose, and even so, there is no way to manage categories with the native Contacts app. 
  • iPhone's global marketshare drops in March quarter as Chinese rivals remain ascendant

    Apple is now 6 years lagging behind the world, e.g. 5G modem in 2025. No break-through in house apps, e.g. still the same Contacts app of 5 years ago. Poor HomeKit & Siri than Google Home & Assistant. Poor ergonomic screen design, you have to press buttons with your fingers flying to every corner of the screen to do simple tasks, the bigger the screen, the longer distance your fingers need to travel.

    my friend told me that his iPhone 6s is as fast as his son’s iPhone X. I asked him how come. He said it’s because he never updates the iOS and thus able to retain the original speed. Comparing to my iPhone 6 Plus with the current iOS version, his iPhone 6s runs like the Flash. And, he keeps the lovely 32-bit games which I have to forget because there’s no more 32-bit version.

    frankly, my kids are using latest iPhone versions. But I find nowhere near to upgrade mine.  Apple, do you know your problems?
  • Huawei tossed from SD Association, Wi-Fi Alliance, RAM spec group

    At war, you’ll destroy, instead of negotiating about the a military base of your enemy.  If Trade War is a real war, Huawei is a critical military base of China.
    Will Huawei R.I.P.? It’s quite resilience and refuses to die, I believe.
    Huawei’s weakness is lack of USD / Florine currencies to buy foreign parts / startup companies out of mainland China and Hong Kong. 
    But why no one is paying attention to Huawei strategy of giving up the current arena (5G infrastructure and mobile phone) but instead it’s moving fast in the Edge Computing? 
    In Edge Computing era / post-cloud-computing-era, Huawei has the dominant edge of 1.3 billion people in mainland China who will be mandated to use Huawei’s IoT. Centralised clouds and mobile phones will be soon in obsolete. 
    Huawei is still an horrible threat if they do the right thing.
  • C by GE smart home lineup gains HomeKit support after multiple delays

    iOS_Guy80 said:
    Started with Phillips Hue, continue to add to the Phillips Hue system, my number one smart home device/lighting ecosystem.
    Philip Hue uses Zigbee protocol (a 2.4GHz personal information network) to control the lightbulbs. At the back end, the Philips Hue cloud talks with Google.The addition of Apple HomeKit and the Apple Home app extends further the complication of dunking among devices, their “rooms” and zones.  Both Google Home and Apple Home lack the ability/ function to save the configuration and once you get into trouble, you have to erase all accounts and settings. 
    Will the C series from GE fix the problem a the cloud level?
