Re: iPod Classic - RIP

Maybe the iPhone has different functionality than the iPad but just over the weekend I was listening to shuffle by album on my iPad, using the iOS music player, running iOS7.

I've done quite a bit of searching (both now and in the [more]

iPod Classic - RIP

I knew this day was coming, but hadn't realized it came apparently occurred last week.

Gone virtually unnoticed in all of the Watch / Pay / Phone / U2 hoopla is that the iPod Classic is no longer available.

Re: What if Jobs gave the keynote last week?

Mythologizing Jobs this long after his passing is pointless and forgets the times that he strode magically onstage with his famed RDS and proclaimed "this is the best thing we've ever done" or "coolest" or some such thing [more]

Re: MacBook Pro - Retina

there is no lock on her Dorm room door,

I'd be more concerned about this than other solutions for securing the computer. Why does her dorm room not lock?

Re: What if Jobs gave the keynote last week?

Which is the point I made that loyalists object to.

There's a big difference between "not nearly as awesome" as Jobs and "a lead balloon" on stage [which was the point you made]. No, he's no Jobs. He's not the most [more]

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

Imagine that. Apple decided that the whiners were right, after all.

It doesn't mean they were "right". It means, "Oh, just shut up already."

Re: No more whinin'!

That leads me to two thoughts:

1) The album will still be available for (re)download even after October 13th.

2) There will be some people who go through this process and then, in about 6 months, decide they actually do want the [more]

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

One thing that I mentioned in my first post in this thread -- and I haven't seen it mentioned by anyone else on this board -- is that the free U2 album disappears on October 13. The point was made that this album is free for a limited time to [more]

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

And funny, I don't hear a "chorus of complaints" when HP offers a rebate on a printer, and I don't activate it in time, or when it's "Toyota Sellathon Days" and I don't get to the Toyota dealership by the deadline, or when [more]

Re: Macs on sale

I've seen lots of links to Amazon. But I've never seen or heard of an Amazon discount that required clicking a link from another site.

I don't think this one REQUIRED you to click on that link. AppleInsider provided direct links to [more]

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

You really shouldn't dismiss any Apple criticism out of hand because you, personally, don't agree with it, especially when there is a chorus of complaint.


Yet, of course, you put faith in this complaint as a big violation just [more]

Re: Apple really screwed up!

There is a backlash against what Apple did. Its very existence means they made a mistake.

There's some sort of "backlash" against almost everything Apple does, so I don't think the existence of one proves [more]

That part I really don't get. How, in any way, shape, or form, is it a "privacy violation"? It might be one if Apple scanned your library / listening history and determined you [more]

Re: iPhone 6 sets sales record despite glitches

But there wasn't big huge compelling reasons to jump from a 4 to 5 (but, but, but, plastic colors, and 64-bit, and...)

Do you mean the 5 or the 5s? Those two things were all in the 5s/c launch, and not the 5. The 5 introduced the [more]

Not a fan of Tony Todd being the Admiral (even though this is a reboot ST) since he had such a prominent role in ST:TNG

I'd have to find the link again, but I read one of those "things you don't know about the Apple Watch" articles that stated quite a few things don't require the iPhone to be present. For instance, the fitness tracking will work while you're [more]
