  • ColorWare will make the iPhone 7 Plus look like a vintage Macintosh for $1899

    $930 extra? Lol. Just get a cream color skin case and stick a rainbow apple sticker on the back. Done.

  • Apple concept for biometric facial recognition could hint at 'iPhone 8'

    I don't want to have to hold my iPhone up and scan my face every time I want to use it or Apple Pay. That would be sooooo annoying. The fingerprint scanner is so much easier & more convenient.

  • Rumor: Apple's new iPad Pros could debut next week, with or without an event

    ronmg said:
    Apple has foresaken the Mac Pro, not updating it in over 3 years. Not to mention the Mac mini & iMacs. They've also discontinued their cinema displays & airport & time capsule. All they seem to be really focusing on now are their iOS devices. Their annual iPhone updates are huge events. And they seem to be touting their iPads as laptop replacements. So I seriously doubt Apple will just quietly drop the new iPad pros(including a new 10.5" bezel-less model) without holding a huge event. No way. The event will either be at the end of March or on April 4th as recently rumored. 
    My God, the whining!! The majority of 'pro' users can get a 27" 5K iMac fully loaded with 4 GHz i7, 32 GB Ram, 1 TB Flash, and 4 GB Video for $3,600, add multiple screens and external hard drives, and be just fine. Apple doesn't care about the EXTREME pro users because there are maybe a thousand of those in the US - hardly enough to dedicate development time toward. So buy a fully loaded iMac or move to Windows.
    Ugh. Not whining. Just stating a fact. Apple hasn't focused on their Macs as much as they used to.  I'm a professional, and have been using macs forever. And I know you can use an iMac for professional work. I use one. And only 1,000 extreme Pro users in the US? Um...wrong. Apple used to cater exclusively to these extreme Pro users. There are many more than 1,000 out there.

  • Apple invents futuristic digital scroll-like device with retractable, roll-up display

    Well, if this is Apple's ultimate plan for the iPad, I'm glad it's not going to happen for awhile. If ever. Cause Unless you're going to Mars, it really looks like a stupid design. But I guess there's a limit to how thin Apple can make the iPad, so a design like this was inevitable. Still, I seriously doubt it'd be anything but a niche product if it ever did become reality. I just don't see the practicality of such a device for the average user. So it would take up less space in your bag. Big whoop. How would you draw on it with an Apple Pencil? Or type on it while holding it? Or how would you keep a flexible screen sturdy while using it without having to lay it flat on the table? I'm all for pushing the envelope and innovating. That's always cool. But this just seems silly.
