YouTube and Spotify Won’t Launch Apple Vision Pro Apps, Joining Netflix (www.bloomberg.com)

YouTube said in a statement Thursday that it isn’t planning to launch a new app for the Apple Vision Pro, nor will it allow its longstanding iPad application to work on the device. YouTube, like Netflix, is recommending that customers use a web browser if they want to see its content: “YouTube users will be able to use...

LifeInOregon,

There’s a toggle button to allow the iPad versions of their apps to run on visionOS. It would take one person less than four minutes to allow it. Is it an amazing experience on Vision Pro? No, but it would be a good one at least.

LifeInOregon,

The old Apple AirPort Express could turn any USB printer into a networked printer.

LifeInOregon,

11% increase in revenue. Lays off a thousand employees. Great to see capitalism working for people and not corporations.

LifeInOregon,

Yeah. He went to that other school with my girlfriend in Canada. My uncle who worked for Nintendo knows all about it.

LifeInOregon,

Every rapist square is a associate rectangle, but not every associate’s rectangle’s a rapist square.

LifeInOregon,

As much as we have Lucas to thank for the movies getting made, it cannot be overstated just how important Ralph was (and continues to be) to the visual language of Star Wars. I love that shows like Rebels, Obi-Wan, and The Mandalorian have incorporated so many of his previously unused designs. His work is the gift that keeps on giving.

LifeInOregon,

Ringtone volume is set under “Sounds & Haptics” in settings.

It’s a “sticky” setting in that, if you have “change with buttons” turned off, you have to go back to settings to adjust the notification/ringtone volume, but I’ve always treated ringtones as on/off rather than specific volume levels, because of the silent switch. I don’t ever want my phone to ring loud, so I have the volume set low just in case I happened to forget to put it in silent mode.

LifeInOregon,

It should be in control center, or configurable to be put there.

Your Apple Watch Bands May Not Work With Next Year's Model (www.macrumors.com)

Individuals involved in developing new Apple Watch models told Gurman that the existing band system takes up a large amount of space that could be better utilized for bigger batteries or other internal components. As such, Apple is apparently considering a magnetic band attachment system, but it is currently unclear if this...

LifeInOregon,

Some variation of this rumor has floated around for years now. Every year we get people saying Apple’s going to change the band design and make old bands incompatible with new watches.

Will it happen at some point? Sure. Do I think it’ll be this next year? No. A magnetic connection seems like the exact kind of thing Apple would want to do if it were practical, but for a device that is used in the range of activities the watch is, it’s not.

LifeInOregon,

Imagine if the same complaints were leveled at people every time Samsung put out a new watch, phone, or tablet. Some of these are just cell radio variations, but come on.

LifeInOregon,

Kobo and Boox are both great alternatives to Kindles.

LifeInOregon,

Windows Phone seven was three years away from unveiling and nearly 4 from release.

LifeInOregon,

I think it’s the 12 Days of Christmas rather than a full Advent Calendar setup.

LifeInOregon,

200m active users on a platform that has 1.4 billion accounts? Okay.

LifeInOregon,

If they enable iCloud sync for messages it will update everywhere, they can also make sure they have Text Message Forwarding selected on their phone. They’ll get the messages in a timely manner (I get mine at the exact same time as my phone) and read messages will be reflected in all locations. I’ve been using iMessage on a Mac, iPad, and iPhone in some combination or other since the feature was offered, and the only issue I’ve ever had with sync was when I did a clean setup on a new Mac instead of a setup from backup. The above options weren’t selected.

LifeInOregon,

I always send an iCloud link for photos when I know that there’s someone who may not be using an iPhone. I’m not sure why others don’t. It’s especially useful when sending large numbers of pictures.

LifeInOregon,

I know it sounds like a cliche, but you are not Google’s customer. You are a “user” and Google sells users to their customers. Your data and attention are their products.

LifeInOregon,

There is a small sliver of Google that wants you as a customer. Maybe that’s the sliver that makes the Pixel line, but Pixel phones are not Google’s business, Google’s business is acquiring your information and selling it or leveraging it to increase ad revenue. Google is not a hardware company, though they sell hardware. Google is not an entertainment company, though they will sell you movies and music. Google is not a consumer software company, though they do provide software and services targeted at consumers and businesses. Google is an advertising company. If you buy hardware from them, and you like it, that’s great, but they are less concerned about your experience as an end-user than they are about acquiring your data to further their ad sales. If making a quality experience for you as a user Improves the likelihood of acquiring more data, they improve the quality of your experience. But if an improved experience hampers their ability to acquire more revenue through ad sales, they will hamper your experience or shut down a product that isn’t directly increasing their data collection and add sales. See: rolling everything content related into the YouTube brand and increasingly hampering the experience of those who use ad blockers or privacy focused browsers.

You may consider yourself a customer of Google, but until you’re giving them millions of dollars every quarter, you are just a user. Google’s profits from every hardware device they’ve ever sold is just a rounding error on a single quarter of the massive amounts of money they make selling ads.

Russia: Let’s send stuff to the moon. Who cares if it lands, maybe it works maybe it doesn’t. Oops! It all blew up. Oopsie!

India: Let’s design an experiment that may offer helpful insights for future missions, and has the added bonus of ensuring we don’t leave debris on the moon.

LifeInOregon,

This is how I understood the comment:

Wrapped gets Spotify a lot of positive buzz. Layoffs while that buzz happens may get less notice, because people are on the “look at all the neat Spotify numbers” train and essentially advertising good vibes for the platform.
