  • Infiniti offers free wireless CarPlay to 2020, 2021 model owners

    I with all car manufacturers would add car play to vehicles that  have the hardware, like the 2020 Honda Insight

  • Jawbone reaches out from grave to sue Apple over audio tech

    I’m quite curious to know whether apple has any patents in this area.  They should since they design and sell airpods

  • EU proposing USB-C smartphone charger standard

     The Radio Equipment Directive also proposes that chargers be "unbundled" from sales of devices, and that manufacturers would no longer be able to "unjustifiably" limit charging speeds.”. 
    These over-officious imbeciles.  Yes they caught apple purposely limiting charging speeds to get a leg up on the competition.  It’s called prolonging battery life and increased consumer safety.  Sounds almost like Samsung is feeding them a big plate of 💩 and they gobbled it up and are asking for more.  I hope apple just puts a usbc adapter in the box and says “problem solved”.  Is the EU going to regulate the size of a sheet of toilet paper next? Or “wetness” of water?  This was more of an issue back in the 90’s when every manufacturer had multiple different proprietary charging ports.  Requiring an adapter is not a biggie, but trying to force them to change the actual port design is arrogance.

  • Apple's new iPhone MagSafe wallet adds Find My support

    I’m confused on why this wallet isn’t compatible with the clear case with MagSafe.I thought the clear case was the same as the rubber and leather but clear.
    I was wondering why and what exactly this means.  I have a feeling there is a slightly different magnet configuration in the clear one that interferes with the special magnetic signaling from the new MagSafe wallet.  Kinda sucks, and keeps people from being able to use generic MagSafe cases.  I think I paid $12 for my MagSafe case that is clear.  I would bet that it won’t let the new feature in the new MagSafe wallet work.

  • Epic appealing Apple's 'resounding victory' in App Store trial

    I wonder how much longer Sweeney will remain CEO.  He has shown a bit of a lack of fiscal responsibility, and has really helped shed more light on how shady their business practices like loot crates, preying on kids significantly more than many other games, etc.
