  • Apple's 'iPhone 8' to come with 64, 256 or 512GB of storage, 3GB of RAM - report

    On the 512GB front, wow! I purchased an 256GB iPhone 7 Plus because I repeatedly hit the 128GB limit of my iPad Pro. I currently have 130.97GB of space available on the iPhone. I look forward to seeing how a 512GB iPhone gets used by customers!!
    I think it would be overkill for most. But I'm one of those people for whom it wouldn't be. Let me explain. I am a travel blogger/photographer. I recently traded my bulky dslr & lenses for an iphone as my main camera. I take hundreds and hundreds of pics while traveling. Yes, there is the cloud, but I am not always in range of wifi or cellular where i go. So for me, 512GBs isn't overkill. :-)
  • Case manufacturer says Apple likely to ditch Touch ID in 'iPhone 8'

    I will miss TID IF Apple drops it. I don't think they will, but Apple is seemingly capricious at times. I do not like FID (Face ID). And those fearing police search and seizure should be concerned.
    You don’t like a thing that a) hasn’t been announced, and b) hasn’t revealed how it would work. 

    Typicla ignorant nonsense, really. 
    Not difficult to figure out how it works. It will involve your face one way or another. I prefer to use my thumb, more convenient. But hey the tech world decided bezels are evil so this is where we’re at.
    Yes they are evil. Bezelbub!

  • Case manufacturer says Apple likely to ditch Touch ID in 'iPhone 8'

    I don't think it's correct to say Apple is "eliminating" or "abandoning" Touch ID in the iPhone 8. It just seems Apple wasn't able to incorporate Touch ID under the OLED screen. That's all. They just ran into trouble, and ran out of time. The facial recognition tech was there, so they went with that. I would imagine once Apple works out the kinks, they'll put Touch ID back into the iPhone 8s next year. But if not having Touch ID is a deal breaker for you, you can always get the 7s this year. That will definitely have Touch ID still.
  • Editorial: An ad-free, premium social network... from Apple

    I am all for this! Apple should have been working on this a looooong time ago. Facebook has become so annoying with all their targeted ads. It's like that South Park episode....DOES...SHE...KNOW....SHES....AN...AD!? Lol. But FB has such a headstart on Apple, it's gonna be an uphill battle for them to make most FB users switch. 
  • Apple to build two new Chinese R&D centers, spend $507M on research

    why invest all this money in china? Why not build these r&d facilities here in the USA? And recruit talent from US universities?
