Apple News:How To Spot Fake Product Reviews On Amazon | Redmond Pie

How To Spot Fake Product Reviews On Amazon | Redmond Pie: "A number of reports and insight studies into the world of online retail and digital shopping have predicted that North Americans will spend over $300 billion shopping online in 2016. That represents a significant growth over last year’s figures. That number is not only astronomical, but also means that consumers are becoming more online-aware when it comes to making purchases, which invariably includes consulting review sites and reading product reviews left on product pages on sites like Amazon. Of course, you can’t always trust that those reviews are accurate and legitimate. Step forward Fakespot to assist with that."

Scratching an important itch.

Apple News:Apple confirms iCloud Mail and Notes are down for some users

Apple confirms iCloud Mail and Notes are down for some users: "Apple’s service status page confirms an issue with iCloud Mail and Notes that is rendering the services unavailable for some users. The outage has been ongoing for two hours now, and there’s currently no word on when we should expect it to be fixed."

You say cloud storage, I say dumb terminal. If I wanted the limitations of a Chromebook, I'd have bought one.

Apple News:Messaging service WhatsApp launches desktop app for Mac

Messaging service WhatsApp launches desktop app for Mac: "Like its Windows counterpart, also released today, WhatsApp for Mac acts as an extension to existing mobile services, syncing conversations and messages between multiple devices to bridge the gap between multiple platforms. It also makes the service readily accessible from more machines. "

Going after Skype et al, it will soon be obvious that for a communications platform to dominate, it must run on every platform. Hence, Google hangouts.

Apple News:Hyperloop One shows off its high-speed propulsion system

Hyperloop One shows off its high-speed propulsion system: "North of Las Vegas in the Nevada desert, Hyperloop One is taking a gamble. Specifically, a gamble that flew along a test track and ended in a spray of sand and applause. The company has been working on creating a propulsion system and pods based on a mass-transportation white paper by Tesla CEO Elon Musk."

Apparently Elon Musk is the real Tom Swift.

Apple News:Microsoft can't even give away Windows 10

Microsoft can't even give away Windows 10: "Despite being free for almost a year, the company’s latest upgrade hasn’t been able to put any significant dent in Windows 7’s user base. It has only just overtaken the universally despised Windows 8.1 release."

It's amazing how poorly understood this is: people who use computers to do useful tasks (as opposed to, say browsing the web and using Facebook) generally do not like to upgrade their OS unless it is a necessary change which will positively affect their productivity.

The millenials will get it too, once they're in charge of 50,000 desktops and have to field calls at the help desk. But not before then.

I think Microsoft's mistake is copying Apple's OS strategy. What works great for phones might not be so great for desktops.

Apple News:Watch: Apple's 2016 MacBook vs. 2015 13" MacBook Air in head-to-head comparison

Watch: Apple's 2016 MacBook vs. 2015 13" MacBook Air in head-to-head comparison: "Apple's latest 12-inch MacBook refresh brings better battery life and a faster processor to the ultraportable platform, but in some respects is outperformed by last year's 13-inch MacBook Air. Is the ultimate in portability worth concessions like a single USB-C port and slower CPU? Find out in AppleInsider's head-to-head comparison. "

Huggadah, huggadah.
