  • Mouse support in iOS 13 and iPadOS includes USB and Bluetooth devices

    Good, mouse support doesn’t belong on touch devices (except in exceptional circumstances). If you want to use a mouse then use macOS.
  • Google suspends Huawei's Android license, forces switch to open-source version

    Very nice. Although not intended, even a small dent in a ‘global economy’ is a good thing. The world cannot all get along no matter how good the intentions are, and the larger the groups of diverse people equally governed the less likely they will be to agree and get along. Discrimination, persecution, division, and totalitarianism will be necessary to manage a globally oriented population. Ironically, the result of a global economy will be exactly the opposite of what is hoped for.
  • Tim Cook changes Twitter name to 'Tim Apple' in response to Trump gaffe

    It’s funny watching people make an issue of this. We quickly dismiss and forget our own stupid word mistakes, but then are quick to jump on Trump about it with a deceptively hidden suggestion that he’s stupid for saying it.

    If anyone is making an issue out of this like they would toward a friend, then great. Enjoy. Otherwise, your hypocrisy is showing.
  • Apple's Tim Cook will 'take a look' at controversial Saudi app used to track women

    Yes, we need to police Saudi Arabia...I hope we will also accept them policing us as well.

    It’s one thing if people are actually being overtly harmed, but it’s another thing if our severe over-sensitivity to a ‘patriarchy’ (which doesn’t even exist anymore in the US, at least as described by modern feminism) makes us want to fix other countries when potential offences by this app are likely to be very minor the vast majority of the time. It’s more the ‘idea’ of the app which we find offensive, and it’s not our place to make decisions for other countries and then cherrypick extreme examples to justify ourselves.

  • Court rules man must be given access to husband's iCloud photos

    We’re talking about family so why wouldn’t each of them have written down essential account information and stored them in a safe? If they had the surviving spouse would have been able to access the deceased Apple ID.

    it’s not Apple’s responsibility to do this. Forcing Apple to do it sets a bad precedent for other types of access by police and others. 
    On one hand that’s true, but on the other hand it used to be normal for details about one’s spouse to be readily given to the other. Less than 20 years ago one could call up businesses and get details about nearly everything and make decisions on behalf of their spouse, and that was expected and normal (and on an unrelated side note, it was equally if not more normal for women to do the same for their husbands despite the false narrative modern feminism presents). As people have stopped valuing marriage, commitment, and unity and have instead shifted in favour of autonomy and self protection (because of the few who abuse those privileges), those privileges have changed.

    In any case, I also wonder why this is news.
