Apple News:Samsung puts 'wall hugger' ads on airport power outlets, takes Apple mockery to next level

Samsung puts 'wall hugger' ads on airport power outlets, takes Apple mockery to next level: "As part of its ongoing Apple-bashing campaign, Samsung recently took their 'wall hugger' message to major airports, cleverly buying ad space around power outlets where iPhone users apparently congregate. "
Personally, with the iPod 5G, it was iOS 7 that destroyed the amazing power management. These days, my iPod 5G is practically tethered to a wall outlet.

Apple News:Apple ignores calls to fix 2011 MacBook Pro failures as problem grows

Apple ignores calls to fix 2011 MacBook Pro failures as problem grows: "Affected MacBook Pro owners have taken to Apple's Support Communities forum, with one of the longer threads racking up well over one million views and 7,611 replies since February 2013. Others have signed a Change.org petition asking Apple CEO Tim Cook and SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi to fix or replace MacBook Pro units subject to the 'manufacturing defect.' With 7,920 supporters, the petition needs another 2,080 signatures to reach its goal. "
For those of you unfamiliar with the history of the American automobile industry, Apple has of late, adopted the policy of "planned obsolescence" in order to get users to buy new hardware. After all, they give the software away for free. If anything, old Macs are "too reliable". My 2001 TiBook still runs well (last time I checked). Once replaced the non-volatile RAM battery. Other than that, probably would scream with a SSD drive.

Personally, my 2011 MacBook Pro is toast. Cosmetically, it's flawless. But it's unreliable. Contrast that with my 2006 17" first edition right off the line from China after the switch from PowerPC. Again, this machine works perfectly. I do plan to put a SSD drive in it, even if only to run Snow Leopard.

Apple News:Alleged iPhone 6 backplate appears in new, high-resolution leaked photos | 9to5Mac

Alleged iPhone 6 backplate appears in new, high-resolution leaked photos | 9to5Mac: "New photos of the iPhone 6 surfaced tonight from Sonny Dickson that appear to show the backplate of the upcoming iPhone 6.  Dickson says that these photos were obtained from a source with access to the part, and they do appear to be legitimate."
TrueTone. Sounds like a guitar from the 1930s.

Apple News:Microsoft no longer dissing the iPad in Surface ads, now dissing the MacBook Air | 9to5Mac

Microsoft no longer dissing the iPad in Surface ads, now dissing the MacBook Air | 9to5Mac
Oh dear. Just when we thought Microsoft might have gotten over its misleading Surface tablet ads attacking the iPad (and iPad mini), it has run three new ones, each attacking the MacBook Air (the other two are shown below the fold).


One thing is sure: whatever Microsoft says about Pads and Airs, Microsoft's strategy of supporting older applications written for Win32 is always going to be a compelling factor for the device. Apple seems bent on alienating all 3rd party developers and older hardware owners with a "too-bad, doesn't run anymore, buy a new app and a new computer" strategy.

Can we interest you in a new iPad that runs millions of apps which really don't do anything functional? But are really fun to play with? At least until the next version of iOS comes out and breaks them.

For better or for worse, I have Win32 apps that I wrote in the early 90s that still boot up and run on Windows. Sounds irrelevant until you consider the massive number of companies that invested in developing in-house Win32 solutions over the past 20 years. Think they want to port to Swift so their software can run for 3-6 years? Ostrich head in the sand.

Apple News:New images provide clearest look yet at iPhone 6 front panel | 9to5Mac

New images provide clearest look yet at iPhone 6 front panel | 9to5Mac
Images of what appears to be the face and screen assembly of the next iPhone have appeared on the Taiwanese blog AppleClub [translation]. In the photos, you can see both the inside and outside of the 4.7″ device’s front panel. For the most part it looks just like the current-generation iPhone 5s, though it’s obviously much larger


iPhone 6 coming quite very soon.
