  • Launch day iPhone 7 Plus, jet black iPhone 7 allotment sold out, Apple says

    Soli said:
    It comes down to a "if I can't have one then no one should" mentality. What a loyal Apple customer he is for wanting Apple's sales and all their customers to be hindered because the specific model he wants is also the same model other people want. Is this the same mentality that makes people incessantly tell you how great a band is and then get upset when you and others become a fan of the very music they promoted? It feels like the same disconnect from logic to me.
    Unless he's one of the people waiting on line to buy one of the high-demand models and resell it for a big markup. In which case, Apple just blew up his business model. That would explain the anger.

    They could have just moved launched date instead of pissing off they're customers. I mean this line is ANGRY!!  

    As Mr. Spock would say, that is illogical. You are angry because you cannot buy a phone this week. Delaying the launch date would not allow you to buy the phone sooner. At most, it would make other people angry, 

    She also reminded everyone in line "remember if your online order doesn't ship till Oct 12th your extended plan doesn't start till oct 12th which in turn translates into "you're not getting iPhone 8 till oct 12th either. 12 months remember?" 

    It isn't 12 calendar months, It's 12 monthly payments. You can make an early payment if it's that important to you.

    Apple is building iPhones as fast as they can.

    Yes, they could have delayed the release until they had more stock on hand. How would that benefit anyone -- customers or stockholders? It's better that some people get their phones this week than nobody getting them.

  • Inside iOS 10: Apple Maps will remember where you parked your car

    Does Apple Maps auto correct traffic routes based on traffic conditions yet?
    Yes. Three or four times now, Siri has told me there was a problem ahead. Sometimes, it tells me I'm still on the fastest route; sometimes, it says "rerouting." (I think it asks for permission before rerouting, but I can'5 recall for sure.)

    I was hoping for multi-location trip routes.

    "Siri, I am going to A, B and C. Plan the best route."
    That's easier said than done. The Traveling Salesman problem is one of the classic optimization problems in computer science.
