  • Analyst says Apple may forego Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter for new iPhones

    Start supporting input (not just output) from other vendor dongles and I do not care. No I will not wear those "earings" because I do not like to stuff my ears with some devices plus they leak sound like sieve. I prefer quality over ear stuff - not fashinable gadgets.
    They’re not just fashionable gadgets, they’re amazing for the office environment. Super light, I’m able to hear my podcasts while also being able to hear things going on around me, they pause automatically when I need to take them out, and no wires to get in the way. Just because they don’t work for you doesn’t make them useless for other people.

    Good. The government sucks at everything. More regulations mean more buerrocrats to enforce them which means higher taxes and more debt.

  • Apple debuts $999 iPhone X with OLED Super Retina Display & Face ID authentication

    Well, I have had every iPhone up until now.  Unless AT&T kicks in a nice trade in like they did last year, we are going to bow out.  Price not worth the features.  I think all these tech companies are going to drive the consumer away.  Yes face ID is nice, but 1:50,000 for touch ID is safe enough for me.  What on this phone is a necessity that a current phone doesn't already do?  Is it sinking in yet to anybody else that the cost benefit analysis is dwindling?  When is cool not enough.....I think we are at the doorstep to that.
    I'm with you on this one. Law of diminishing returns is definitely starting to come into effect here. It's a cool phone no doubt with amazing technology, just not sure if it's enough to get me to upgrade from my 7+ at the moment. I may instead just be upgrading my 1st gen Apple Watch which is starting to feel real slow.

  • Disney to end Netflix partnership, launch own streaming services

    Won't be long before every producer of content will have their hands in our pockets. Cord cutters, your dream has come true. No more free lunch grandpa, the world is taking its cues from Spirit Air, pay toilets, and toll roads. No taxes, but everything you use will cost you. Justifying your accounts at the end of the month will be a nightmare with hundreds of nickel and dime charges flowing from your phone, watch, and car. Brave New World. 
    Wow! Capitalism! What a concept!
    Right, community out, every man for himself in. I'm sure that's how humanity progressed. 
    Capitalism is the only reason companies like Apple and Disney even exist so I'm not sure what you're implying. Disney has their own product they want to sell and they want to cut out the middle man not unlike, oh I don't know, Apple with their retail stores? The market will decide if this is a good move or not. Disney seems to think it is. Does it kind of suck? Well yes because I have a one year old and it's awesome to get Disney movies included with Netflix and I don't really want to shill out more money for another subscription service. Only time and people voting with their wallets will tell.
