No wonder Disney is saying it will take years before Disney* is profitable, by then the competition will be on the ropes. I suspect Apple will abandon it’s media attempt, Netflix will be worth pennies on the dollar, and the the other media companies will be unable to monetize their streaming businesses.
I loaded up the Matrix (all 3) on VUDU, because it was a "Freebee" and on the OLED you could totally see compression black banding. I couldn't take it.
So I went back to my Blu-Rays (HD) and watched the 1st but couldn't take HD. I wanted the FULL Dolby Effect. (Vision+Atmos), well last night checking on John Wick 3, Apple loaded up a $4.99 for each of the 3 Matrix Movies!, I was like I gotta compare, result:
The quality of Apple Compressed 4K Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, is INSANE compared to VUDU, the matrix movies could have been just a quick "piece-o-work" but still, 2nd movie tonight, Revolutions Sunday night.
Apple stands on the QUALITY of their Encodings, so... to each their own preference...

Virtually everyone in America has a credit card, so what's wrong with Apple offering one with better terms and security than most? If you don't use credit cards, don't sign up for an Apple Card. If your existing card is better under all circumstances than the Apple Card, or you don't want yet another credit card, don't get one.
Now if Apple wants to get into the furniture rental scam, that's another story altogether...
BTW, no one here is arguing the other side of your "you should pay off your credit card every month--or not even use a credit card--if you can" proposition. Yes, paying interest when you don't have to is bad.

I’m iffy on whether or not I’ll pay for an Apple streaming service. If it’s free or bundled with Apple Music, great. But if they want me to pay 10 bucks extra for it or something like that I’ll just not buy it. I use my sister’s Netflix login, and I have a great torrent site. Frankly the UIs for most streaming services are worse than my torrent site, so why pay for them?
