  • Apple-backed lobbying groups accused of fighting climate legislation

    ...if Mr. Cook genuinely cared about climate change why would he purchase a ten thousand square foot home, presumably for one person...?

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook buys Southern California mansion for $10.1M

    For a CEO touting environmental responsibility and with such potential design and financial resources available this raises so many questions...
    I might have expected (hoped for) a choice more along the lines of Naturhus Sweden from Apple TV+ Home adapted for California climate...?

    For consideration in comparison Steve Jobs had sought to custom build a 4,910sf home for his entire family: gizmodo.com/exclusive-the-plans-for-steve-jobs-new-house-5649909

    "Jobs intends to populate the 6 acres with an assortment of indigenous flora; a simple three-car garage; a modest 5 bedroom home with plenty of windows and decks; a network of lighted stone walkways; and even a private vegetable garden. Everything is neat, tight, pragmatic, and in its place"

    "
    Steve Jobs has gone and designed the iPhone of houses"

    ... and this was a decade ago when the symptoms of climate change were so widely contested by vested interests ...

    How should leadership be defined...?

  • Unreleased MacBook Pro screen resolutions discovered in macOS Monterey beta

    ...should this be 4k @ 3840 x 2160 @ 16"...?

    such appears to be possible:

    and perhaps appropriate

  • Apple prompts upgraders to 'get ready' for iPhone 13

    ... is this one more attempt to normalize customer data on iCloud servers, with permission of course...?

  • Apple releases macOS Big Sur 11.6 with security fixes

    I have no desire to upgrade anything macOS any more. Nor do I want a speaker that listens or a watch that syncs my most personal info via server farm in the USA. My Photos app is empty due to always on image tagging. I have turned 'Find My iPhone' off. Should users be able to locate or wipe an iPhone after a loss without needing this on 24/7?  My 2010 pro is as fast as the base 2019, yet 'obsolete' + unsupported. I'd rather keep using it. It was and is still 'insanely great' and fast enough. This increasingly feels like a lost decade.
