  • Why you should buy Apple's MagSafe battery pack

    Does it work with iPhones that have a case?
    According to Apple, it does work with MagSafe cases. For third party options, it might be trial and error.

  • Apple TV+ to add multiple Russian-language shows in new deal

    I don’t know why an article about this wouldn’t at least include the names of some of Mr. Rodnyansky’s previous projects. You know, so that we readers can understand why this such a coup for Apple?  

    His company, AR Content has produced 3 of the last 4 films by Andrey Zvyagintsev, who is arguably one of the finest directors on planet earth. Along with Elena (2011), and Oscar-nominated Leviathan (2014) and Loveless (2017), they are working together on the upcoming What Happens (2021). 

    If this first-look deal includes exclusive streaming rights to What Happens, that would be a huge deal for Apple, as that film will almost certainly be an awards magnet next season.
  • UK Apple TV viewers blocked from seeing key football match

    This would most likely only affect people who have 'cut the cord' and no longer receive broadcast signals via aerials, satellite or cable and thus think they don't need to pay the mandatory UK TV Licence fee. Since watching any form of live-broadcast TV, however it's delivered, including online, requires a TV licence, most of the people inconvenienced by this will likely not have much of a leg to stand on to complain.
    Do you even know what you’re talking about? 
  • Patreon doesn't pay Apple's 30% App Store commission, and its CEO isn't sure why not

    The only think I got from this article is that the CEO is ignorant and lazy.  Jeez, at least he could have summoned the head of mobile development at Patreon before the interview and ask the person how it works.

    I just lost a huge amount of respect/care for Patreon.  Boot this CEO out and get someone that knows about tech.
    Great idea! Let’s just fire some guy based on a very brief summary of a much longer article. Cancel the bastard! 
    Ignorant and lazy…lol. 
  • Proposed antitrust bills would ban Apple from preinstalling its own iOS apps

    I would imagine that IF this actually happens, it would only affect those new to the iPhone. Current users will still be able to transfer all the first party apps they currently use over to their new phone just like they can with all their third party apps. I’m not saying this doesn’t suck, or that I support it any way, only that it will probably affect a very small number of people.
