  • EU to say Apple Pay breaks antitrust laws

    There are comments above which suggest Apple Pay is a monopoly.  It plainly isn’t. It just links Apple Pay, as a convenient way to pay using a phone or watch to pretty much any bank account. Apple Pay is merely a facilitator to pay from any bank card.  This can hardly be a monopoly. If the complaint is that you can’t use, say, Google Pay instead of Apple Pay, why would you have an iPhone, you’d have a Google phone?  This is just time and money waste to give civil servants something to do.

  • Netflix blames account sharing for first subscriber loss in a decade

    The reduction in subscribers is due to a number of reasons: cost, variety, competition, people going back to work after lockdown. I share my daughter’s subscription (she is in the same house) and I wouldn’t have my own if she moved away. All the providers should do a family sharing type thing as Apple does.

  • Apple claps back at UK report it claims would force it to 'redesign the iPhone'

    Why have successive UK governments not taken action against Microsoft for its ubiquitous Office suite?

  • Apple praised and slammed for representation of women at March event

    As with any company, Apple should employ the best people for the job, not because they are male or female, of a particularly chosen gender or none, or because of race, colour, nationality or creed. It should also be borne in mind we are not all the same: we should be recognised for our differences and enjoyed because of that.  Trying to make diversity a requirement of whom to employ is condescending and a waste of talent.  Bringing in people for any reason other than that they are the best person for the job, devalues the person and devalues the company.

    Apple,  as a huge organisation, cannot please all of the people all of the time so will be applauded and criticised whatever it does.
