  • Bluetooth streaming problems introduced in Apple's iOS 9.2 remain, have wide ramifications

    This article is another in a long line of many reasons folks are concerned with the rumored loss of the 3.5 audio jack.
    Apple BT implementation is not the robust "it just works" tech is should and could be.
  • Secure WhatsApp found to not be completely eradicating chat transcripts

    Not specifically mentioned in AI's article:
    Apple’s iMessage has this problem and it’s just as bad, if not worse. Your SMS.db is stored in an iCloud backup, but copies of it also exist on your iPad, your desktop, and anywhere else you receive iMessages. Deleted content also suffers the same fate."
    It wasn't mentioned because it's not relevant to the topic of the article. WhatsApp promises utter absolute security, and eradication of deleted messages.

    iMessage does not.
    However Apple alludes to it.  
    Why is it the deeper I dig, the the more the "privacy" claims by Apple tends to resemble a house of sticks?

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook, VP Lisa Jackson to host Clinton fundraising event

    Apple should stay out of politics... Supporting a crooked woman and her philandering husband is nauseating.
    And that is the problem.  As soon as your hear, read, or see the term "Tim Cook' it is interpreted by most as "Apple".  For that reason alone he should not be doing this.

  • Apple and the Bot War on Apps

    These rants get more nonsensical and pathetic every time one is posted. The app boom is over, just as surely as the Wii shovelware train eventually came to an end. There's simply too much garbage in the Store now, and Apple won't do the needed purging. Will there be the occasional hit? Sure, but not like the old days. 

    I mean, this entire rant contradicts itself multiple times. 
    So true.  What's even more broke is the ability to search for apps.  To find a decent relevant for the App Store I use Google.  Wow.
    For Enterprise, most either leverage and mod existing apps or develop their own apps.  Two I consult for and one I directly work for all have a company app store.
    For bots - I can see this growing however will it follow the app evolutionary path?  I see more of the Instant App feature being the future.

  • iPhone 7 and Apple's next Retina Display frontier: Wide Color

    So, I looked at this article on the following:
    iPhone 6S+ 9.3.2 - red box
    iPad Mini 4 9.3.2 - red box
    rMB OS X - red box
    Nexus 6P Android 6 - red box with logo.
    Note 5 Android 6 - red box with logo

    So, what is so special about this?  Wider Color?
    Does this mean that Apple has been deliberately constraining the color before this?
