  • Apple TV+ falls flat at Critics Choice Awards

    To be fair, none of the Apple TV shows is a must-see. They play it too safe, no comparison to HBO, BBC, or even Amazon. Even the Morning Show started strong and has turned into a soap opera. 
    Amazon? Yeah no, they’re the worst of the streaming networks. If it weren’t forced as a bundle on my Prime I sure as heck wouldn’t pay for it. 

    “A” shows for me on Apple TV:

    Severance

    For All Mankind

    Slow Horses

    Ted Lasso

    Losing Alice

    Mythic Quest


    I don't agree with these. But due to Slow Horses, Severance, and Silo, I retract my post. (I wish I could delete, but I cannot).

  • Apple Podcasts coming to Tesla for premium subscribers

    I still don't understand why Tesla is considered a Technology Leader in the car industry. Virtually every other electric car may not have Netflix and a Fart noise, but has
    - CarPlay
    - ability to chose between one-pedal-driving and using the brakes for regen, instead of having to have one-peel driving permanently engaged
    - a SatNav worth the name - Tesla is a map view with written instructions, and sometimes the two don't even match
    - a suspension
    - adaptive cruise control sans the phantom braking
    - Car Play (again, because it really is that important)
     - matrix lighting

  • Apple's new Apple Card & Goldman Sachs statement doesn't clarify things at all

    The only reason I got the card was the attractive no-interest financing on Apple products. And even that has become less attractive as Apple/GS only give one year (one!) to pay off a mac, and two years to pay off an iphone (because that makes sense).

    As far as transitioning banks, no, you won't have to "reapply" for a new card. When Costco dumped Amex for Citi, I did not have to reapply, and all balances, credit limits, etc. carried over without issue. Yes, it will show as a closed account and, if it was your card with the most longevity, it would affect your score. Given how new the apple card is, I doubt it establishes a majority of users' credit histories or is their "lengthiest" card.
    Why is the credit score so important? You really only need good credit once: when you want to get a mortgage. Surely, mortgage lenders look at income vs expenses, savings, outstanding loans, and value to mortgage ratio more closely than they look at a credit score.
