  • iPadOS 15 confirms Apple's M1-equipped iPad Pro is a V8 engine powering a Ford Pinto

    I've owned two iPad Pros so far (latest is the 2020 model), won't be upgrading again until Apple totally revamps their OS. Waste of processing power at this point.
  • iPod touch 5 prototype shows Apple considered iPhone 4-like design

    I just want to say that I think it’s bullshit that comments are disabled for the article “Legislation to curb anticompetitive Big Tech firms, limit mergers is imminent”.  

    This is a subject that affects each and everyone of us and I think we should be able to talk about it on a site whose very livelihood depends upon the ecosystem under threat. 

    Alas, this happens far too often on the AI forums. I don't think they pay the moderators enough (if anything) to moderate important, if at times heated, discussions.
  • iOS 15 Live Text feature can copy and paste text from any image

    It would be great if one could search text from photos in one’s library.

    Yes pretty sure they covered that feature in the keynote.
  • TikTok can collect users' biometric data according to its new privacy policy

    There was a time when the idea of governments being out to collect every last bit of personal data they can -- not always for good purposes -- would have been called a cray conspiracy theory. I think we're well past that point now that potential surveillance tools are in the hands of most people (their own phones). As the old "boiling a frog" analogy goes, nobody seems to care since it's been a gradual introduction, and it's been candy-coated as a self-gratifying experience (social media self-absorption). This is preparing the world for a future more dystopian than people currently imagine is possible. Unfortunately, countries like China demonstrate that it is not only possible, but already well on its way. The US isn't far behind in some sense, we'll see what the next 10 to 20 years bring.
  • Canadian PM Justin Trudeau busted using fake Mac with Apple sticker

    Lmao, doubters. So when have you last seen a Mac of ANY model with that many ports on the RIGHT side of the device? Even my 10 year old 17 inch MacBook Pro has all of its ports on the LEFT side.
