  • Steve Jobs email reveals Apple was evaluating an 'iPhone nano' in 2010

    ...I miss the 2011 Apple...
    I found an old shriveling Apple in my truck today my kids left for me.  It could be from 2011…happy to send it your way🤣

  • Apple supply chain readying for third quarter 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro release

    I'm a bit worried about the talk of SD and HDMI, as I personally think going all USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 was an improvement. I think, though, if they do go with a new MagSafe power connection, there may be potential to put these ports, plus Ethernet and some other stuff, on the power brick, as currently done for Ethernet on the new iMacs. Of course, I'm sure this will be very unpopular, but I'd rather see them do that than put more large, and structurally compromising holes in the side of the MBP's chassis.

    Hell, they could put all ports on the brick, and just have the MagSafe on the MBP itself. I mean, that would be going a bit far, but it does improve the structural integrity of the unit.
    I don’t agree with you at all. Putting essential parts in the brick makes sense for a stationary computer like the iMac, but would be terrible for a portable one like the MBP. It would principally require you to carry that specific brick with you all the time.
    Sorry but you are missing a potentially great solution bringing built in IO would offer, a dock for when at your office, hotel, or pool side.  When just going out for a quick coffee, leave it behind.

    As the current arrangement does not offer IO without a 3rd party dock, you are not loosing anything but rather gaining a great addition when stationary.  

    As for the IO options, adding a SD card is way too late and a micro sd slot maybe but a full size slot is old school tech.  The HDMI would be okay, but just buy a usb-c to hdmi cable.  It’s not like you don’t need the cable anyway.  

    To me adding the micro sd card slot would be nice, but I would rather have 4-6 usb-c ports. For the love of the almighty, no freaking usb-a ports…just buy the new cable. A mag safe port could be okay but I always charge my MBP 15 via a slow usb-c on the go. So I would not use it as I hate carrying the brick.

    The 12.9" iPad Pro is very uncomfortable to hold in portrait orientation for long periods of time.  Any device above 10.9" screen size is far better used in landscape.
    I'd love to see some analytics on this. I personally think you're dead wrong. Particularly w/r/t web browsing.
    Sorry but that is your opinion and not how everyone uses the device.  All of my iPads live in landscape  mode.  I only use portrait mode for poorly designed apps that force me to do portrait mode.  

    For evidence of your belief is wrong, why are the Apple designed accessories designed for landscape mode? The Smart Cover, the Magic Keyboard, and the Smart Keyboard are all designed for only landscape mode.

    What I’ve wanted is for Apple to put the FaceTime sensors and front cameras on a long side. It’s ridiculous that they have it in the portrait position. Who really uses an iPad that way most of the time? This is a horizontal device. FaceTime isn’t as useful because on the side, it doesn’t always work, because you hold it by the sides.
    You are completely wrong.  Browsing the web and using 99% of apps are in portrait mode, you can see more of a page in portrait mode.  The only time people use it in Landscape is for video and some games, or for the small percentage of people that bought a keyboard for it instead of a MacBook.  FaceTime with a person is more ideal in portrait mode than landscape mode.”

  • US official calls Cook's idea to vote on iPhone 'preposterous'

    Sorry but the “good book” so to speak doesn’t say they need any of this crap:

     The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of ...” enter amendment specific  text.

    It just says Citizens.  So yes I should be able to vote online through a phone with verifiable information that I am a citizen.  So my SSN and my driver’s license number should be enough.  

    Almost all the BS this crony is spewing would be resolved in a few hours with the right app team.  It is just more government overreach and desire to squash the masses.  (Full disclosure, I am a guberment employee🤪)

    In my state we have voted exclusively by mail for years and years and years.  The only verification is my signature on the envelope.  It works here and it should work in all states.  

    Voting is a constitutional right and the concept is entrained in our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.  Our founding fathers created a system to prevent the republic from going through another government change by empowering us the right to vote for those who oversee us.  That right, like other rights spelled out in the constitution, shall not be infringed.

    So, New MacBooks say what?
