  • Australian retailer pulls AirTag over battery safety concerns

    According to iFixit’s recent teardown of the AirTag, the battery lid is quite difficult to remove. They state that even with clean, dry fingers it’s hard to get enough friction to turn and release it.
    And according to iFixit, the Tile and Samsung(?) trackers are very easy to open up. What about all those hearing aid button batteries lying around? Why is it always Apple that governments, especially Australia, going after? It's just the money and control.

    What a peculiar thing to write. Consumer bodies, governments of different levels etc "go after"  every company that they consider is selling a product with safety issues. I guess if you only read Apple news sites you'd think what you think. Do you live in Australia?

  • Apple's MagSafe wallet review: finally solves the unified iPhone and wallet issue

    As a vegetarian - which is not a rare thing in this world - my issue is the leather. I can understand the issue with silicon being grippy but I'd buy a knock off faux leather one even if it had a limited life span. I still like the wallets which cover the screen as my experience is that my screen stays mark free and it survives face first drops. They fold back behind the phone so I'm not sure about why that would make one feel silly using it.
