  • iPhone 14 Pro review: The best power & camera to cost balance

    I had so much trouble getting my new 14 eSim set up with T-Mobile.  I will never understand the business model of TMO: as a long time customer there are times when I really like the service/support, but other times when I wonderbhiw they stay in business.  Something is amiss at T-Mobile.

  • T-Mobile users angered by iPhone 14 preorder failures

    I am a TMO customer and do like their 5G coverage as well as all the free perks (Netflix, Apple TV, Paramount, Shell fuel, etc).  But, for a tech company as big as TMO they really need to improve.  Their App sucks and seldom works.  I bought three new items today within 5 minutes after 0800 but all by using the Apple App.  Never gave a thought to use TMO's website.

    I admit I own a 2021 BM loaded x5.  It is an amazing brand with super engineering.  I like nice things and BM is a very nice thing.  But Chadbag is wrong to assume we are all a-holes.  I am one if the nicest guys on the road.  I do use Apple Music with my car and sometimes Apple Maps.  Everything works great together, but I do not want to use any version of CarPlay that replaces my instrument panel with an Apple look.  Apple screens in CarPlay look so cartoonist. I am happy with BM OEM display clusters and options.  
    I am not wrong. You are the exception that proves the rule 😂

    I did say it was a stereotype and not all members of a stereotyped class will actually match the stereotype.  But enough do to create the stereotype.  

    A good friend of mine just recently ordered a BMW (upgrade from his Mazda).  He is the nicest guy in the world.  I kidded  him about joining the a-hole class.  We had a good laugh about that.   Another friend ofmine works for BMW bank in the US and of course drives a BMW.   He is reasonbly nice as well.  But almost every day I see a BMW being driven in such a way as it reinforces the stereotype.  

    Even 30 years ago when I lived in Germany working for DEC the BMW drivers kind of had the reputation as all the (male) businessmen with company supplied BMW cars drove like the rules of the road didn't apply to them. (Like instead of waiting in line in the left turn lane at an intersection they would go down the normal lane and at the last minute turn left outside the normal people turning and then cut them off -- saw that sort of thing regularly).   
    Point well taken, but these days the highways are all saturated with stupid, careless drivers of of makes/model.  I have witnessed more chuckleheads dominating the roads in a Mustang GT, Dodge Charger and Chevy Camaro.  Roadways are a scary place to be these days.

    Considering BMW is first do Apple Keyless and the fact Apple used  their car on their presentation, I think BMW is in there

    Tesla uses Android dude lol 
    I do not carry my BM fob and instead have been using BM digital key in Wallet on my iPhone 13 and Series 7 Watch.  The digital key works, but it does take a few weeks of getting use to sans fob.
