  • Hands on with the Apple TV app redesign in tvOS 17.2

    I don’t watch soccer. Ever. Allow us to be able to delete the MLS tab. 
    I agree. It's like dropping a U2 album onto a hard drive. Didn't ask for it, don't want it, shouldn't be forced to.

  • Hands on with the Apple TV app redesign in tvOS 17.2

    Better than it was, I guess. But they should have put Apple TV+ and Season Pass in top spots of the Channels section, instead of its own section above Channels. The current app is incredibly frustrating since, in the UK, not all shows included in Up Next are also available as Chanels within the Apple TV app. For example, NOW and BBC iPlayer shows are in Up Next, but you have to exit the Apple TV  app and go to the separate apps in the home page to access the channels.
    Ultimately, the App is only as good as the Channels it shows. In the UK, it would have to offer BBC, ITV, Channel 4, NOW, SKY, etc as Chanels in the app, otherwise it is useless.

  • Apple Studio Display vs Samsung ViewFinity S9 5K -- compared

    Hm, comparing the same price point, the Samsung seems better: better stand, better camera, AirPlay, and SmartHub TV (e.g., Apple TV). And thinner bezels.
    OK so it's missing Center Stage, Spatial Audio and six speakers. Are these important on a desktop or bedroom screen?

  • Apple Watch Series 9 & second Apple Watch Ultra will be significant upgrades

    We consider new colours, an improved heart rate sensor, and improved Find My "significant" upgrades now? I remember when significant meant things like mobile calling capability.

  • CarPlay & Android Auto have a stranglehold on the new car market

    It would be preferable to have an infotainment service that does not rely on a mobile phone - I leave my phone at home a lot, but it must be fully integrated with Android and/or Apple Apps and the respective data on iCloud; and switch automatically based on the driver's key that is being used. Even if GM manages to do this with Google, do they really want to narrow their target market to Google/Android clients; I doubt Apple will allow a Google system full access to data stored in iCloud.
