  • YouTube flip-flops back to picture-in-picture not coming to iOS 15

    Sounds like they are following the model ESPN used.  They pull features from standard programming (that everyone who has cable or satellite television (whether or not they watch ESPN), and adding it to their premium offering. I pay for HULU, and Disney plus, but will not get the bundle on principle, because they effectively are are moving some features from the regular programming that most people are already paying for, to add it to their premium.  They have also gone way overboard with placing preference for hype over actual news.  
  • Apple sued for not paying New York Apple Store staff weekly

    Seems frivolous. 
    Seems like an open and shut case.  Apple didn't have permission, therefore Apple broke the law.
    Except for the fact that it’s a huge stretch to consider working in an apple store manual labor! $5 million? This is a lawyers attempted extortion.  Let these whiny babies actually work manual labor.  Emptying a cash register, working a sales floor, unboxing?  Seriously, they need a reality check!  That is not even close to why that law was written.  
  • EU will force Apple & Google to allow third-party app stores, payment services

    I can see Class action suits be people who have been harmed by this overreach.  It’s taking us all back to the days of windows CE.  Security was crap, search everywhere to find an app, mass piracy, easy for anyone to make a fake App Store website and load it with pirated material and viruses/malware.  I guess they value cyber security like their NATO spending, not living up to obligations 
  • New iPad Air's thin back panel and creaks prompt build quality complaints

    Ok, I watched the video.  I would think that someone trying to show a flaw that causes the creaking, would zoom out enough to actually show what they were doing to the iPad to cause the sound, not a closeup of the screen and the sound.  Not making any accusations, but the video is evidence of nothing.  Not rushing to blindly defend apple.  I would actually like to see a better video showing what the claims are.  I have thought about getting an iPad Air. 
  • Illinois judge dismisses Apple's challenge to Chicago 'Netflix Tax'

    This has to be about the most ignorant comment I’ve seen here. Don’t misunderstand, I said the comment was ignorant.  It is not a judgement about you personally. I do not know you. Chicago is not making api’s, they aren’t making phones, operating systems, or hosting anything from apple on their servers. Chicago also is not constantly upgrading the operating system to make it more secure. Hell, they have done a poor job of trying to make the city safer for residents. I suspect the comment was more meant to troll.  It’s not well thought through

    So Apple doesn't want to pay a fee for selling their product in Chicago...

    This sound very familiar... Like Epic not wanting to pay a fee for selling their product in the App Store...
