Re: Peak Apple

Its not the stuff we know about that will keep Apple growing but the things we don't know about.

I predict that at least one of iMistress, iCoin, or something from the coming line of Apple Brain Implants will hit and drive growth into at

Re: I Think I Need A New Laptop

Also, most (not all) users rarely ever need to deal with optical media (CD or DVD), If you're one of the ones that does, you get an external USB drive. Apple sells them, as do many other vendors.

Another option is, if you have [more]

Re: New A8 iPod Touch models

And 20 years ago we al did very well without cell phones.

Re: iPhone vibrating

Is the phone plugged into the charger when this happens? I've had that happen when the charging cable was going bad, so the phone kept thinking I was plugging and unplugging the phone.

Re: Taylor Swift explains her "No" to

I'm closer to Goofy's age than to a teenager (unless he's super-old), and I've been trying out Apple Music's free trial. So far, I generally like it. I've mostly been exploring the curated playlists and trying out albums I'd considered buying in the [more]

Re: Jail Time for 60 Minutes?

Seems like every week the 60 Minutes listing on my TV screen claims 60 Minutes is "new" and every week it turns out to be a rerun sometimes a re-rerun.

It's probably because they take 3 segments that ran on different [more]

Re: Daredevil

I liked it well enough.

I actually liked it a whole lot, especially as I watched more episodes. I didn't care about the fight scenes that much, but I wasn't really watching the show just to see fight scenes.

Re: Taylor Swift explains her "No" to

I thought the DRM was transferred to the CD? I guess that changes things...

Two days ago, in this very thread, I argued that the Taylor Swift thing wasn't "good" publicity for Apple, because people only remember the initial [more]

Re: Taylor Swift explains her "No" to

It's win win for everyone. Apple gets free publicity,

I don't know about that. People don't remember the correction. They remember the original mistake. How long did jokes about the iPhone 4's "antenna problem" persist? [more]

Re: Incoming calls ring on multiple iPhones

I saw that setting but figured it was only related to Facetime calls since it was under Facetime settings. The calls in question aren't Facetime calls since the caller is using an Android phone. Think this is still the cause?

Re: Inside Out

My biggest complaint is that judging by the audience around me it isn't a very good kids movie. It was a very disruptive crowd because the little kids were bored and more than one family left and didn't appear to come back.

Re: Taylor Swift explains her "No" to

It's no different for Apple, which would be giving away massive amounts of storage and bandwidth. Not to mention the cost of advertising, and the salaries of the deejays (or whatever they're calling their curators), and the salaries of the people [more]

Re: Taylor Swift explains her "No" to

I think this was kind of a bonehead move on Apple's part. There are plenty of sources of "free listening" for music that pay the royalties, and when a company has in the neighborhood of $200B in cash/investments, it's not like they can't [more]

Re: Incoming calls ring on multiple iPhones

I suspect it is due to Handoff. I got an iPhone 6 recently, but still have my iPhone 5 hanging around as, basically, an iPod Touch for my toddler to play with at times. When my 6 rings, that also causes my old 5 (and my Mac) to ring, as [more]

I missed a few bits here and there (it was my 3.5 year old son's first movie, and he ... does not like to sit still), but even so the latest Pixar ranks up there with their best. It had me tearing up in a few places (not quite to the level of Up's [more]
