  • Three M3 chips could land in Monday's Mac line refresh

    Original M series iMac purchaser here - very, very happy with a great system. I'll buy a 24" M3 eventually, a 27" M3 sooner or a 32" M3 ASAP. An M3 Max of any screen size though ASAP too. I use my system principally for data processing under Python and Mathematica and for playing with AI. As a lazy Safari never closes a window user, Safari consumes most of my energy. So, buying the latest, fastest iMac to feed my laziness? Yes, get over it :D .

  • Code leak says WhatsApp is finally coming to iPad

    Thieving app - why use it with Signal (cross-platform) and iMessage are available?

  • Foxconn predicts decline in iPhone demand

    I'm on an iPhone XS Max still, with full battery performance and stacks of free storage. Apart from the camera, this iPhone 'feels' quite up-to-date. This is surely a common story and so, predicting the typical upgrade cycle for well-made products such as this must be a fools errand. (I'm going for the 15 to mitigate risk of American firms manufacturing in China going pear shaped in the not-too-distant future - which hopefully it won't.)

  • Apple insists Australian payment rule changes shouldn't apply to Wallet

    Apple Pay works very well in Australia. My Apple Watch is all I need to have with me when shopping here. No wonder the banks are pressing 'reforms' - they're grifters actually with government backing.

  • Apple Watch may gain a new fabric band

    Any band with a finite number of fasteners seems to never fit me. My fabric band has an infinite number of fastening positions which always work for me.
    My circumstances too. The fabric band at last is perfect for me, allowing just the right tension.
