    The way iKnockoff companies like Scamscum get away with this is disgusting.  If this were Apple, guaranteed that the the botomfeeding lawyers, media, and iHaters would be screaming for Tim Cook's head, and clickbait YouTubers would fill the Internet with countless videos on how Apple is a "greedy" company and ripping off users.

    If Apple did that, there’d be huge class action lawsuits lined up on Cook!  😂
  • Apple unveils trailer for international 'Pachinko' drama

    Finally, my wife is dying to see this. Apple TV+ is a keeper!
    I agree. In my opinion, Apple has been doing a wonderful job of bringing to the public, some very high quality drama series. This series looks fantastic and I’m looking forward to watching.
  • Apple says Spatial Audio is a hit, drawing more listeners to Apple Music

    Personally, when the spatial audio songs were released, I went out of my way to sample some of the songs to experience the hype myself.  I have AirPod Pro’s on a new iPhone 13 Pro Max. My business background was 30 years in the record industry.
     I liked what I heard but found the feature only subtly unique. I was more impressed back in the 70s when the Quadrophonic Sound feature was debuted, but even then tired of it quickly.  Was the new feature a game breaker for me to listen to music?  Not at all. My preferences for music listening is recording and playback quality first.  Frankly, I actually cancelled my iTunes subscription after that.

    It's amazing what someone will do for attention and to increase their social media presence.
    I fully agree.  So many of the Tik Tok videos are staged for just that.  Looking at the crocodile tears on this woman, to me, tells the story of a staged video.
  • Apple releases watchOS 8 update for Apple Watch

    Not sure about y’all, but I get an error message in the Watch app that says “Unable to Check for Update. An error occurred while checking for a software update” with Cancel and Try Again buttons. Pressing Try Again does nothing and Cancel, well, just takes you back one menu. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
    I had that happen as well. I run a vpn on my iPhone and I know that’s the culprit. I just disconnect the vpn while the update sets up and all is good.
