  • Apple may have as many as 11 shows ready to preview at March 25 event

    Oh boy get ready for some milquetoast TV or Disney 2.0.
    Or Apple will announce that they’re buying Disney, which would explain why they slowed their buybacks in recent months despite having announced that they intend to be cash-neutral in the foreseeable future and also said that they would be sharing more details this spring about how they intend to achieve that. 
    Apple is never going to buy Disney.

  • California reintroduces 'Right to Repair' bill after previous effort failed

    Get ready for shitty third party parts installed by shitty, untrained techs in shopping mall kiosks. Instead of ordering a part from Apple many users will opt for questionable but cheaper third party parts. Do it yourselfers will blow up their devices and then expect Apple to make it good... at no charge. Instead of ordering that brake caliper directly from Ford you’ll order one for half the price and of dubious quality from Amazon. Then when you kill yourself in an accident your family will sue Ford. You get what you pay for. There is NO Apple tax for quality. What’s next? Court ordered modifications such as user replaceable batteries, headphone jacks. Regulated design thickness to accommodate repairability. Imagine what an iPhone designed by iFixit will look like.

    "The company is openly opposed to such legislation, saying access to repair material would expose industry secrets and create security and safety issues for customers.”

    There goes privacy and security when that part you bought is later found to be reporting your every move and word to god knows who or where. Oh, you say, legit repair shops will only install Apple OEM parts in your $1K phone. Think again.

    Also, get ready for people to over exaggerate how bad third party retailers are going to be and not how some will be great.

    Because that’s what will happen will all third party companies and none will have great customer service with great repair standards because they want to run a successful business.

  • Apple's 'It's show time' video and Apple News event is on March 25 at Steve Jobs Theater



    Calling the day off for this one!

    That’s so sad. You get nothing out of calling off work for a low level announcement from Apple when you can get all the information after you get off work.

    Yet my ‘fantastic’ HomePod can’t play Spotify natively. Great job, Apple.
    Except for the fact that you probably don’t own a HomePod. I mean why would you buy a HomePod knowing it wouldn’t connect to your favorite streaming service, Spotify. Your sarcasm appears fake and disingenuous.
    I own two HomePods. Just bought the second one this week. I don’t and won’t subscribe to Apple Music because I use another service that fits my needs better. This after using Apple Music again for 3 months. I just AirPlay is throughout the house and it works just as good.
