So About Apple Coming After Accounts and Services Over Late Apple Card Payments

Apple Card

If you are going to take a big swing at Apple, get your facts straight first.

I saw an interesting story yesterday about a person having some trouble with Apple. That isn’t too uncommon. The story often plays out the same- the little guy is unwittingly, but coldly stepped on by the Big Tech behemoth. It’s an easy sell as a story, and we all know that a negative story about Apple brings the clicks in droves.

Sometimes it’s a simple as that. Apple is a massive company and sometimes massive companies make ill-conceived or purely bureaucratic decisions that hurt their customers. Sometime Apple’s leaders knowingly take up positions that aren’t all that friendly to their users. But what happens when context arrives a day or two after the opening shots and it turns out that things didn’t play out that way?

An Apple MagSafe Battery Pack and a Southern Snowpocalypse

Snow at home

What do those two things have to with each other? Very little, but bear with me for a moment.

Since Apple announced MagSafe magnetic wireless charging along with the iPhone 12, people have been wondering when we would start seeing MagSafe battery packs for iPhone. The second question is whether Apple would replace their Smart Battery Case with MagSafe battery pack of their own.

Apple’s Spring iPad Event Rumored to Be Planned For March 16th

Magic Keyboard

We’ve been hearing rumors of Apple planning an event for this spring since late last year. That’s no surprise, because March events have become commonplace on Apple’s yearly calendar and the only reason we didn’t have one last year was because of the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now we have our first prediction of a date for that event.

Epic Games’ North Dakota Bill to Cripple Apple’s App Store Fails

When news broke of an unlikely threat to Apple’s App Store from the North Dakota State Senate of all places, the first thing most of us who follow and cover Apple thought was why: why there and why now? The answer has become quite clear after some digging by the press got to the heart of the matter.

It Looks Like Apple is Aiming High With its Coming VR Headset

While they were all over the map these last two years, rumors of Apple’s VR and AR projects have been heading in a single direction lately and taking shape around a single product. Considering how reliable sources like The Information and Bloomberg are, I have to believe they are accurate.

Don’t Believe Everything the Tech Press Says About Project Titan or an Apple Car

At least not yet…

The last two weeks have brought a fresh flood of information on Apple’s Project Titan automobile project. Supposedly Apple is in talks with multiple automakers over potential manufacturing deals, and reliable sources such as Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo think a fully autonomous Apple Car could arrive as soon as 2025. What form or function that vehicle takes on is still anyone’s guess.

It’s February 1st, which puts us a month to a month and a half from new Apple hardware and possibly an Apple event. While we already expect new iPad Pros, an updated iPad Mini, and possibly a re-designed iMac with an M-series processor, it’s hard to imagine another Apple event passing without their most poorly kept secret, the AirTags, finally coming in for a landing.

Apple’s iPad and Mac Posted Some Big Sales Numbers Recently

MacBook Air

On Wednesday, Apple released some huge quarterly sales numbers for what they call the first quarter of 2021, but most of us recognize as the 4th quarter of 2020 by the calendar. They beat every expectation that the street held and set records for revenue. Every product category was up, some by really surprising amounts. It felt as close to the late 2000s and early 2010s, when every quarter successive quarter brought news like this, as we can get today.

There was additional Apple sales news yesterday of a more specific nature. The company stopped officially releasing device sales numbers a few years ago, but that certainly hasn’t stopped analysts from projecting them for us by various means.
