  • How to use Spaces, Apple's mostly ignored macOS Mojave productivity feature

    OK, the article keeps mentioning four-finger swipe; and I think one person here also mentioned it.

    Well, it works with the three-finger swipe, no need for four fingers.  Three fingers up works exactly the same as four fingers up; same with Left and Right.

    Cheers

  • Apple releases Safari 12 for owners of macOS Sierra & High Sierra

    Yeah - it disabled uBlock Origin, AdBlock Plus, Ghostery etc., saying it will slow down performance.

    I am now bombarded by ads on any page I visit!  And there are no updates to any of these extensions. Problem is, I am one of the few who prefers Safari to other browsers, and am now forced to either have ads or use some other browser.

    And I do not understand what SpamSandwich is saying - I am on the latest and greatest updates to the OS and all other apps; so, what do you mean by being penalised for not updating to the latest OS?

    Cheers

  • Wish list: 9 new CarPlay features for iOS 12

    3rd party map is good idea but Instead, Apple should keep making it's map better.There is nothing to gain for Apple giving access to other Map Apps. Apple put efforts to create CarPlay and Google map rips the benefit collecting in-car data mining.
    Bolding mine for relevance.

    Your point is from the perspective of a user in countries where Apple Maps is supported. There are many countries where Apple does not support Maps. In those countries Google Maps is the only solution. Google Maps works very well on the iPhone, and directions are extremely accurate and optimal.

    Please note that most of the cars sold in such countries do support CarPlay and whatever Android's version of CarPlay is.  And the Android version supports everything right now. Apple is perceived to be wanting in some areas of CarPlay.

  • Apple is de-bloating iTunes with latest 12.7 release, removes App Store

    *SNIPPED FOR RELEVANCE*

    on that line of thinking though I'd rather see Preview disappear and rolled into iBooks so that PDFs are read directly in iBooks but add Previews annotation functionality.
    I'd rather not. I use Preview to view files other than just PDFs. Your opinion is probably based purely on PDFs and nothing else.

  • App face-off: Apple iMessage vs. WhatsApp Messenger

    One more point in the original article was about being tied to only one phone number. That again is not an issue. I travel a lot to different parts of the world and I usually always get a local SIM. And then when I open WhatsApp, it gives me the choice of changing the associated phone number or ignore the message and continue using WhatsApp using the old number. I usually just use the old number and it has never been a problem.
