  • OneOdio A10 ANC Headphones review: Great audio for those on a budget

    Odio means hatred or “I hate” in Italian and Spanish. Do marketing people not Google these things?
    The name of the company is OneOdio - what does that mean in Italian or Spanish?

    It's like the myth of the Chevy Nova (no vas)- a Spanish speaker would point out the words aren't pronounced alike at all.

  • Man beaten, robbed of $95,000 worth of iPhones outside Apple Store

    Strange. Apple stores don't normally sell to resellers. Usually resellers have to go through Apple's business channel to make large purchases.
    Apple has authorized resellers (cellular stores, big box, etc), though I suspect their purchasing process is NOT three big bags filled up at a retail location, purchased OTC.

    I thought Apple didn't have many phones anyway with the meltdown happening in CHHHIIIINNNA....
    I work at an authorized reseller. We cannot order or pick up items at an Apple retail location other than at full retail price.

    We are 100% not allowed to sell to somebody if we know they are going to resell the devices at a profit.

    The person could be a consultant charging for configuration services for their clients. That would be acceptable. Many of the local consultants separate those sides of the business and have us invoice directly to the end user.

  • Tim Cook says Apple is being more cautious with new hires

    thrang said:
    Amazing they are still hiring, if even at a reduced level, given other tech layoffs. Continues to show that Apple maintains such a different value proposition to its customers, and seem to be far better planning resource requirements and assessing market conditions than many others.
    Apple's a pretty big company, there's hiring for staff growth, and hiring for staff turnover, too.

  • Apple Music removes Kanye West playlist after controversy

    "after the singer make antisemitic remarks on Twitter"

    Really?
    Yes, AppleInsider articles are frequently full of typos. Also, apparently I’ve been banned for pointing this out so be careful! They can criticize but clearly don’t like receiving any.
    They emailed me once - they prefer you to send them (editor or author) a direct email rather than posting it in a public forum.
