Apple being sued because two-factor authentication on an iPhone or Mac takes too much time...As someone who works in the field if information security, the lack of foresight on some of these replies is incredible.
Nearly every one one of the scenarios presented in the comments is addressed in the Apple support document about 2FA:
2FA isn’t perfect, but it’s heck of a lot better than just a password. Even if you use a complex unique password for your Apple ID, 2FA provides an additional layer of security if there’s a compromise. Most end users don’t think about information security best practices until a compromise has already occurred. This lawsuit is a waste of any courts time.
Comcast appears to be skipping Apple TV Xfinity app in favor of RokuI have two Apple TV Gen4, 1 Apple TV Gen 3, and a Roku stick. The Roku gets the job done, but it's no Apple TV.
For those concerned about other vendors dropping apps for the Apple TV, keep in mind that most of them, because they are free, are already universal apps that are basically the same app for Apple TV/iPhone/iPad in a combined application bundle. The development costs are nil at that point to keep the Apple customers happy with an app that provides access.
Comcast is a horrible company. More than likely Roku made a deal with Comcast to share user data with them. It's no secret that Roku makes their money off of user data provided by their customers in terms of viewing habits, etc. I believe every app has to make user information available in order to get their app approved in their store, though I may not be describing the terms 100% accurately. Apple probably has no desire to give up the treasure trove of information that Roku is willing to provide. That being said I don't blame them, they have to make money somehow considering their product is very inexpensive.
A new iPod Touch is coming soon, if the rumor mills are correctiPod touch is a great device. Glad to hear it will most likely be updated. A model with 512 GB would be optimal for many folks who like to load their entire library onto their device.
It probably won’t have a headphone jack. What Apple really needs to do is come out with an improved dongle that provides both a lightning port for charging and a 3.5mm headphone port. Having to use a dongle isn’t an issue for me, but not being able to charge and use my cheap headphones at the same time often is. The third party products that do this are not reliable. This wouldn’t have to be included in the box, but just having this as an official accessory would make a lot of users happy that aren’t on the Bluetooth headphone train yet
