  • Editorial: The iPad Air and the iPad mini have always been Apple's best tablets

    And all that the iPad mini really added to its specifications was an improved processor. It still didn't have the iPad Air 2's A8X processor, but it did have an A8.”

    OMG, the biggest change to the IPad Mini with the iPad Mini 4 was the laminated, anti-reflective coated screen with the best color of any and all iPad released before it. Why do you, AI, always overlook this?

    im so glad they improved the screen on the Mini 5 and didn’t dumb it down to iPad entry leve cheap non-laminated screen like so many rumors!
  • Grocer Kroger launches QR code-based payment service, snubs Apple Pay

    So, I did not know, (or forgot), Kroger was one of the currenc holdouts. I hate Kroger but it’s the only place in my area with nearly reasonable prices on natural and organic foods. I’ve contacted them several times telling them they need to adopt Apple Pay, pass it on to management, the response was that they were not going to, kind of rude about it, no thanks for my interest or anything positive to say to me about it, or for contacting them.

    They don’t know how to manage their stores and they don’t know how to stock limited time major sale items, I have problems with their self check out too often, and, I gave up trying to use my own bags long ago because I would always need assistance, pressing “use my own bags” never works right, ...the list goes on. When I move again, I hope I will be able to avoid Kroger.
  • Apple rumored to launch subscription News at March 25 event, 'AirPods 2' and new iPad mini...

    No on the video streaming service, not until Q3.

    yes on new hardware, as the model numbers have already shown up in iOS...which hardware is the question. ...Mac Pro? That would be a surprise, however, nothing points to being near production, so probably not.
  • Researcher demos new macOS Keychain exploit, holds data from Apple in protest

    This is bogus:

    1) the person trying to steal your passwords has to first have access to your Mac.
    2) he then ran some app to get your passwords...I’m guessing all this app does is enter your Mac’s password for the keychain items automatically and then extracts them and displays them all in a list, so, again, back to 1).
    3) you can also lock keychain so that it has to be opened with a password, so they’d need not only your Mac’s password, but keychain’s password...this is not the default for keychain.
