  • Twitter for iOS updated with $8 checkmark in-app purchase

    I think this charge will return Twitter to its original purpose.

    How do I use any of these programs to draw a family tree instead of using commercial genealogy program? 
    I would recommend Keynote. Insert a text box for each person, and connect that with angled connection lines. Export to pdf or jpeg or whatever you prefer.

    Keynote is basically a page layout program. All of the iWork apps are good at page layout.
    Can Numbers do it?

    I don't know that it's as much "political pressure" as it's simply infeasible given YMTC being added to the list of Chinese companies not permitted to sell into the US market. Apple is so wealthy and powerful anymore that I doubt they care too much about what any government says they want them to do. They'll beat 'em back with money, lawyers, political friends, and lobbying and do what Apple corporate wants to do for the most part.
    Sorry, but this is counterfactual, at least as regards China and the EU. Apple blocks apps from the App Store in China to which the Chinese government objects, and is widely rumored now to be replacing the Lightning interface with a USB-C one in next year’s iPhones to comply with the daft EU legislation to that effect. Similarly, Apple worked with the Indian government to start production of iPhones in that country, when India’s laws insisted on that for foreign manufacturers. In fact, you could say that Apple has bent over backward to comply with the laws of every country in which they sell their products.
    Sorry, you're talking about law vs. the political pressure which was the topic of the AI article. Yes, once countries "want" becomes law Apple usually (not always, ex. Brazil) will follow it. As far as I've read the only country where Apple will bow to political pressure is China, and that's only because of the amount of money to be made by playing nice with what they tell Apple to do. US? Nope, not until it becomes law or the order of the highest court. EU? Same. India? Same.

    Political pressure means nada to Apple in most of the world not spelled C-H-I-N-A. The laws of a country are a different matter. 
    Because you are looking at China through Western political system. China does not have lawmakers like the west. There are no laws. Do a Google search for yourself. LOL
