Apple TV+ could end Netflix

Published by:

The new Apple TV+ video streaming service was launched a month ago with a somewhat mixed reception. Apple had only a few shows at launch, and some people felt short-changed with the lack of content.

If we look at rivals Netflix, they have an extensive collection, which at this time beats Apple TV+ hands down as Apple only released a handful of shows at launch; even though this could change shortly.

As you might be aware, Apple iTunes is one of the most significant collections of video content by far, but this hasn’t seen its way into the new video streaming service. There could be many reasons for this, but the higher cause is probably due to rights and royalties.

Apple could wipe Netflix off the map if they allowed the entirety of the iTunes video collection to be available for paying subscribers. If they keep costs low for the customer, they will migrate from rival stream services as they will have a better choice. Think different, remember that Apple.

If you would like a free seven-day trial, download the Apple TV app from the app store. You can get a free twelve-month subscription if you have bought a new Mac, iPhone, or iPad in 2019, do not hold me to that, but I got one with my iPad 10.2-inch 7th generation. Otherwise, if in doubt, it’s outlined on the apple website.

Faulty iPhone 7 Screen – Unresponsive!

IPhone 7 screen fault

CLICK HERE to view the video.

The iPhone 7 has gone faulty(broken). I believe the screen has gone faulty down one side, and it now had a mind of its own. Things move on their own along with flickering and other minor faults.

Microsoft saves headphone jack

Published by:

Over the last few years we have seen many phone manufacturers ditching the headphone jack for alternative wireless solutions. They all claim that ditching the headphone jack will give them more space to design thinner handsets. 

Microsoft today have released news about a patent they have been granted for a resizable headphone jack. The new technology will allow any handset to incorporate a headphone jack without taking up vital space. 

There are two aspects to this, have Microsoft found a vital market, or have they lost touch with what consumers want in their handsets? I guess time will tell whether this will make them a fortune or be a big waste of time. 

Even if they have found a gap in the market, we all know that Microsoft will licence this to the hills and this will put a premium cost on top of the handsets sale price. 

Would you pay extra for a headphone jack, or would you adopt new technologies? I think personally, I would just adopt new wireless technologies rather than buying outdated technology. 

Two Cheeseburger emojis starting a worldwide debate

What is the world coming to? People are debating the difference between the cheeseburger on Apple and Google devices. 

Users have noticed that Google have placed the cheese at the bottom of the cheeseburger, while Apple have placed it on top of the burger. This must be a modern day issue if people are worried about what a cheeseburger looks like on their devices. 

Google have said they will be discussing the offending emoji to come to a suitable solution. 

Checking Signal Strength — iPhone Hack

Published by:

  
Have you ever wondered what your real signal strength is with an iPhone? Here is a simple little hack that will help you. 

1. Type *3001#12345#* and hit call. 

2. Hold down the power button until it appears with the slide to unlock. 

3. Then hold down the home button until the screen flashes back to your home screen. 

The end result will change your signal strength bars to a physical number. Anything close to 80 will mean you have enough strength to make a call, and anything under might result in bad reception. 

To revert back to the old signal bars, just simply reboot the phone. 

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISTAKES MADE BY USERS, YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! 

Apple Chargers — The Ultimate Pain

Published by:

If you own, or owned an Apple device you will know how much these devices cost, and how much Apple charge for new charging cables, and I’ve bet you have felt the sting when purchasing replacements—it isn’t cheap for sure!

I’ve personally owned Apple devices for around eight years now and in that time I have probably gone through hundreds of replacement cables, keep in mind that I’ve had every iPhone since its release in 2007, and several iPads and iPods. For every cable I got with a device I would buy another one for it, or in some cases two depending on how paranoid I got about Apples’ flimsy charger design. It soon adds up.

The actual design of these chargers may seem like they are sexy and simple, but in essence, they are flimsy and break easily—maybe this is done on purpose to make money? These replacements from Apple cost £15 a time, which is good, considering they used to be £30 a time between 2007 and 2014. Maybe Apple felt sorry for themselves and decided to drop the price—they make 150% profit on everything they make anyway, it was about time they dropped prices on overpriced products. 

This is a true story, but at times I’ve had to tape up broken cables just to make them last longer, and on some occasions I’ve used electrical tape on new cables to form a thicker protection around the cable. Do the math, make a cable last longer and save £15, or replace it every time it breaks and watch your bank balance slowly disappear, I know what one I would choose! 

Ultimately, you have only a couple of choices, and either way it won’t help you, unless Apple decide to change their charger design to make it last longer, who knows? We might be lucky. 

Another file gone

Published by:

After my recent problem losing documents, I have been hit once again. Yet another document lost due to corruption, but luckily I saved that document as a PDF at the same time, so it isn’t a major loss.
I am starting to lose faith with cloud services, in such a short time, I have lost a novel and a old novel that’s already been published. These services should reevaluate their problems before more users are effected.
Anyway, rant over, need to lie down again due to illness. It’s really got to me today.

New Phone Change

Published by:

This blog is somewhat late—five days to be exact—I can only apologies for this. Health problems have kicked me seven ways from Sunday, it’s crazy how this condition renders me helpless and I have to lie in bed all day. I’m hoping the tests come back today or tomorrow, it’s been nearly a week now so, I can’t see why they wouldn’t have it.

Let’s discuss something else away from all these health issues. I brought a new phone two days ago because my iPhone 5 has started to develop a few problems that were getting on my nerves—ironically this happens just before the warranty expires, thanks Apple …

The phone I got as a replacement was the Samsung Galaxy S3, even though this wasn’t my preferred choice, but it was better than nothing at all. As you all know, or even if didn’t know, I’m an avid fan of the Apple platform. Since 2007 I’ve owned many iPhones, and even though many of these broke down, I still remained loyal to the platform. The only thing that has put me off is the hardware faults, I thought faults where a thing of the past, but I guess I was wrong.

Anyhow, I’m off camping for a week tomorrow with my family, so don’t expect miracles for the blog. I will try to write and upload a blog during the week, but either way, you will find updates and photos across my social media pages—Facebook and Twitter. So, on that note, I’m off now to pack. Until the next blog, stay safe and take care.
