  • Apple releases watchOS 8 update for Apple Watch

    peterhart said:
    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. 
  • Proposed antitrust bills would ban Apple from preinstalling its own iOS apps

  • Apple's Eddy Cue says Spatial Audio is a 'game-changer' for music

    Regarding Lossless, In my opinion, the average person can “hear” the difference. The key to that is whether they can “recognize the difference and appreciate it.  The “average” person today has lived primarily with highly compressed music, lower quality electronics, emphasizing booming and distorted sounds.  They would not recognize the difference at all.  
    It’s akin to serving an unfamiliar foreign culinary entree to an American palate and having them recognize and appreciate the flavor while growing up on a fast food, prepared food diet.
  • AirTag review: sets out to do one thing, and does it near perfectly

    sflagel said:
    Keys I get. Everyone misplaces keys. But what other item, that is sufficiently large to attach an AirTag to, do people misplace? Has anyone, ever, really lost a back pack, or forgot your carry-on luggage? And even if, these are three items.  I’d love to read ideas because I ordered four AirTags and I don’t yet know what to do with them! 
    My very busy 40 year old daughter is chronically misplacing her items, not just her keys.  In particular, her wallet.  Her husband has used the competition with success, but the Airtag will be even more accurate.
  • Apple loses exclusive rights to 'iPhone' trademark for non-smartphone products in China

    If you know how to do business in China, with a corrupt hierarchy, maybe Apple execs need to understand and follow protocol to ensure people are taken "care" of making things go smoothly. Me thinks some people at Apple have upset the "Apple"cart!
