  1. Apple Special Event - September 12‎ at 1 pm EDT

    If Apple had released them at the same time, the X would have overshadowed the 8 and a lot of 8 buyers would have felt disappointed by the fact that there’re spending $700+ and aren’t even getting the best phone. With the current release schedule, the 8 and 8+ are getting their own release window and so buyers are getting the best phone in the world right now. It’ll be 6 weeks before the X is out and so in the mean time, the 8 and 8+ are getting their time to shine. Also in the mean time, this is giving Apple extra time to ramp up the supply chain for the X and to polish the software for the new form factor. I think Apple’s strategy here was excellent.

    That’s the Mac Mini.

    It sounds like the iPhone 8’s camera is a much bigger jump than anyone expected. The 8 and 8+ cameras are getting rave reviews across the board, with people calling them the best on the market and DxO giving them the highest ratings ever (92 and 94). The iPhone always has a great camera, but for the past few years, the new iPhone has been competitive with the best (ie. right up there trading blows with Samsung), as opposed to being THE best. This is the first time since the 6 or even the 5S that the iPhone camera has been the clear-cut best over the Galaxy and Galaxy Note. Now we shall see what the Pixel 2 is bringing to the table in 2 weeks.

    Apparently the issue is that it doesn’t detect if a WiFi signal is crappy, so it tries to connect to zombie WiFi signals instead of letting go and going to LTE. This could also explain a big part of the battery drain, as boosting the signal to connect to weak WiFi is a huge power hog. Apple’s already working on a fix.

    I’m surprised the iPhone 6 is getting so much support here. That’s my least favorite iPhone ever. It was Apple’s least impressive design since the 3GS and it was underpowered. The 6S was a massive upgrade from the 6, so going from the 6 all the way past the 6S, past the 7, and to the X or even the 8 - is a huge upgrade.

    It turns out that Face ID did NOT fail on stage.

    The iPhone 7 already crushes the S8 in performance. And the A11 is a huge jump up from the A10.

    This is bonkers.

    Wow, Apple just released iTunes 12.7 and it pulled out Apps, ringtones, iTunes U and Books. About time.

    lol. I love that account.
  13. Keep in mind that this was the first Star Wars movie in a decade. That pent up demand affects the gross. For example, The Phantom Menace made over $800 million adjusted for inflation. But its sequels made significantly less. I guarantee we'll see the same trend with Episodes 8 and 9. My worry here is that Disney is going to blow the series' good fortune in pursuit of a quick payday. Giving the audience a lot of fan service and homages built into a generic action/adventure flick might generate a crapload of cash in the short run, but that also risks killing the IP in the long run. I don't want Disney to commit an Activision.
