  • iPhone 14 Pro always-on display, 'Studio Display Pro' in Fall, HomePod rumors on the Apple...

    I’m not getting the point of an always on display… why would anybody want that?  Would hope it is optional in the settings
    OLED displays can just light a few pixels without drawing much power. So, an always on display could display the time and date or give battery or connection status without draining the battery. 

    Chances are high it will be an optional setting. But, why would you want to turn it off? 
    Better question might be why would I want my phone lit up everywhere?  Imagine this in a dark movie theater for example.  And do I want my bedroom having this additional light ?  LOL

  • Apple Car project loses another executive six months after hire

    As a fan of Apple products,  i can’t let that jade my opinion on this rumored car project.   Apple makes great computers, phones and other tech.  But does that mean they know how to make a car? Or should?  I doubt there will ever be an Apple car.  Really good people who know how to design and make cars are already doing that somewhere and the chance of them going to Apple is just about zero.  Cars are not computers although some seem to think that because Apple makes computers it therefore can make cars.  What is the point of an Apple car?  I’m not getting it.  Why would Joe consumer be interested in an Apple car even if Apple had car people that are not computer people?  Nobody cares about an Apple car and apparently these fly by night employees do not either.  What is mighty Apple going to do that is not already being done in the auto industry or under development?  Sorry if I offend the fans,  but I am being realistic.  I myself have zero interest in an Apple car,  but I really like what Apple offers in the computer and phone space.

  • Texas boy's 31 cheeseburger order demonstrates why you should secure your iPhone

    Okay, I'm an Apple Specialist and you'd be surprised how many people have no passcode on their phones. Then you have the people who use "codes" like 0000 or 1234 to open their phone.  Even more people keep every password under the sun in an unlocked Note file.  

    The majority of people do keep their phone and passwords secure (as evidenced but the roughly half of customers who cannot remember their Apple ID password!), but there's a large number who do not.  This person is lucky that all that got ordered were a couple dozen hamburgers.  It really could've been a lot worse. 

    People- use a six digit passcode with non-repeating numbers; don't keep your passwords on your phone; and don't use the same password for everything.


    And think about the option to enable the phone to wipe clean after 10 straight bad passcodes

    I would rather buy Apple products labelled "Manufactured in a free country" than "Manufactured free of certain chemicals." And I would pay more for that.
    How much more though?

    I'd LOVE to see Apple start manufacturing here in Japan again.  But even though the Yen is super weak right now at ¥129/US$1, it's still not on the level of China.

    But not only is Japan a free country, you'd also get the benefit of their amazing work ethic and zero defect commitment.  Because of that, Apple would get the benefit of the coolness factor too.  It's hard to find things Made In Japan today, but when you do, they are usually of amazing quality and amazingly cool as a result.

    Make Apple Cool Again 🇯🇵
    Some very high quality and expensive watches from Casio and Seiko among others are made in Japan.  I believe my Mazda is from Hiroshima,  has been great car.
