  • Apple beats lawsuit over racially diverse emoji

    This the kind of absurd lawsuit that Apple would routinely lose. Maybe they got better lawyers.
  • Netgear has a new $1,500 Wi-Fi 6e mesh router

    I hope this doesn't double-post -these forums really don't like Safari 15.

    I have been using Orbi an RBR50 and friends for a few years now. They were very simple to install and have been performing quite well. They have not been entirely trouble free but they are orders of magnitude faster than the Airport base station they replaced.

    Unfortunately they cap out at about 350 Mbps. I want to replace them with something that can support my 800 Mbps service. I want to look at the DECO product mentioned above. However, I do not want anything from Google or Amazon and am willing to pay a premium to avoid that.
  • Fake Apple stocks are starting to trade on various blockchain platforms

    It’s not fake stocks though, it’s more like buying an index tracker. It aint stock, fake or otherwise, it’s something different and something I would avoid like the plague. I’ll stick to my AAPLs. 
    An "index tracker", in the way I think you mean it, actually buys the stocks. They own part of the companies they are tracking. When I first looked at the headline of the article, I got the impression that this was just an index fund you could buy with crypto currency. But it's not. They are selling literally nothing. It makes no sense.
  • HBO Max ditches tvOS API for homegrown solution, chaos ensues

    I am not sure if this is due to the app update, but now, when I search for movies etc, I am not able to navigate to any of the displayed results. When I hit any directional key, the results page down one row at a time until I am left with a blank screen. It is 100% unusable. QA for the win!
  • More supposed evidence of rumored next-generation Apple TV remote surfaces

    The current AppleTV Remote is arguably the worst design they ever came up with. At least with the hockey puck mouse you could feel for the wire. In a dark room, if you are lucky enough to even find the remote you have a very low chance of doing what you were hoping to do. I have turned captions on by accident more times than I have hit the button I wanted the first time.
