  • New iOS 13 feature uses Siri smarts to thwart spam calls

    There's a solution a million times simpler than this, which I have explained 100 times in various places, and nobody sees its value. That is, when the caller is "connected" the caller is faced with an audio "captcha". Depending upon the caller's actions, the caller may end up in voice mail, or getting disconnected, or getting the phone to ring for the recipient to answer. You don't need a contacts database for this. You don't need Siri. You don't need a "do not call" registry. The first person who invents this will be an instant billionaire, but apparently nobody wants free billions. I have been trying to promote this solution since 1993.
    Two things:

    1. everyone loves captcha - legitimate callers would be rightly annoyed.

    2. Stop talking about your billionaire idea and just do it already.

  • Apple's 'iPhone SE 2' rumored to ship in first half of 2018, made in India

    I hope this is true. While neither old or on assistance I love my SE because of its size. I use a construction calculator on it at work and it fits well in my pocket. Up and down order pickers and ladders etc and it never gets damaged or falls out of my pocket. 

    I can can afford any phone I want and I choose the SE for its size. An update/additional features would be welcome in spite of this one serving me quite well.

  • Review: Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

    Review metrics aside, these are pretty ugly.

  • Apple Pay gains 30 more US banks amid wait for more retail chains

    Sorry to be a bit off topic, but I have to ask the AI editors something that's bothered me for a long time:

    Why is it that the list of banks in the lead article contains no formatting or line breaks but if you go into the forum comments the list is bulleted and nicely formatted?

    A minor annoyance but bothersome nonetheless.
