Apple has been both praised and criticized over their rigid standards for the App Store. Parents tend to appreciate knowing that porn and other indecent material will not be readily available via apps. The ones where it is able to be found can be restricted through parental settings, making parental control realistic and not too difficult for those who want to take advantage of it.

Where is the Bottom for Apple’s Stock?

This not your typical click-bait piece bashing away at Apple over their recent tumble from the highest peak of the corporate world. It also isn’t a “rally the troops for the cause” piece from a blind fanboy. I’m just really curious where things are going to end up at this point. Apple’s stock price has fallen so far that it’s hard to see an end at the moment.

There is still plenty of kindling for the fire, too. Every day brings new reports of suppliers cutting forecasts and prognosticating doom and gloom. There is also a steady stream of articles from analysts telling us why they are right this time. Maybe they are. Maybe it’s a repeat of last year. Maybe it’s somewhere in between.

Apple Music Arriving on the Echo is An Interesting Win-Lose for Apple

It was big news last week when Amazon surprised everyone with an announcement that Apple Music is coming to their Echo products. A year ago this would have sounded unthinkable, but Apple and Amazon have been slowly drawing closer over that time. Prime Video showed up on Apple TV and then Amazon started selling new Apple devices after driving unlicensed refurbished sellers out of their Marketplace. And now this.

Deals: Nomad Ultra Rugged Charging Cables

Some of the most popular items I have recommended from our Deals store are Lightning cables. If you are an iPhone and/or iPad user, it’s hard to have too many. Between the living room, the bedside table, the car, and maybe the office, it certainly pays to be covered and have a cable standing by at the ready. And don’t even get me started about kids wearing their cables out and coming to borrow yours. If you have children with iOS devices, you know what I’m talking about.
