  • EU questions whether Apple has changed anything after its $1.95 billion fine

    rob53 said:
    As I've said many times before, people have plenty of choices on what products they want to buy. If you don't like Apple's way of doing things go with an Android platform or demand a company in the EU to build a new platform. Just because Apple's platform is the one many people want to use doesn't mean the EU has any right to tell Apple what to do. If you don't like what Apple is doing, find another platform. It's just like wine. If you don't want to pay for wine made in the EU, then grow your own, which the USA has done. 
    And in Rob53istan, where Rob53 decides what laws are made and what those laws should mean, that's the way it works. I'm a little surprised that in Rob53istan, the lawmakers don't have any rights to tell companies that operate there what to do and what not. Maybe the ruler of Rob53istan doesn't understand what laws are, how they work, and why they exist? 

    At any rate, in all other places, including the very real European Union, it is not Rob53 who decides how laws work and to whom they apply.

  • Apple rolls out minor updates to iWork apps

    Wow. Didn’t discontiguous text selection use to be a feature back around 2010?

  • Future Apple Vision Pro may correct for vision problems without magnetic lenses

    I really can't believe this wasn't in the first version. The technology isn't new. I go to the eye doctor and the software immediately determines my prescription and focuses the corn at the edge of a grass field. They need to have this built in to the software. 
    From what I can see, autorefractometers start at around €3000, used

    (Somewhere around 15,000€ new)

  • macOS Sonoma update fixes USB hubs, Java crashes, and more

    The biggest bug for my entire industry was iLok authentication for audio plugins not working natively. 

    14.4.1 fixed that bug.

  • US DOJ will finally sue Apple after years of antitrust investigation

    Are you suggesting that the President should have carte blanche to hold sway over the DOJ and what lawsuits they bring?  What about separation of powers?  Not your thing?  
    Dictatorship is all the rage recently, it seems.
