entropys said:Regardless of the merits of this app (or not), this is a politician “directing” a private entity to do something about a third party’s product. In another country no less. Fascist.
This isn't an order, we should note - it's just a plea, which Wyden or any other person is entitled to.
Remember, Apple's GUI is based on work by Xerox.ihatescreennames said:Does anyone know anyone that actively follows Apple's YouTube channel? If it wasn't for seeing these things on AI I would have no idea they even existed.
Side question: are these songs currently nominated for Grammys? Out of the three there was only one that I didn't cringe while listening to. I'm sure that's different for different people and is another reason I couldn't care less about the Grammys/Golden Globes/Academy Awards/etc.

A smart-door lock on my smart home is where I've drawn a line for now. Just not confident in that one quite yet. My cleaner has a key. My immediate family has keys. No one else has a need to be in my home if I'm not there, and the extensive hard-wired and independently powered security system I have lets me know if a door or window isn't secured.
TBH I'm surprised when folks I know say they plan to get a smart door lock unless they're showing the house for sale or rent. That one I can understand.
Does all these TVs announced with AirPlay2 undermine the market for AppleTV?
Usually you can install a large number of applications (many Android based) on these TVs that mirror the most popular apps on ATV. With the addition of the ability to stream both video and audio from Apple devices to them, an ATV suddenly may seem like a product in search for a solution.
