Apple World Today has a story up right now titled "Yes, Apple's products are overpriced".

They're not wrong.

Why the hell doesn’t Instagram support Live Photos yet?

Just grabbed "Advanced Apple Debugging & Reverse Engineering" from RW - on sale for Black Friday. Good price, should be an interesting read! 🤓

Mohave installation was painless, Dark Mode is nice, and I'm back in business.

I'm gonna visit the Apple Store tomorrow and see all the shiny new stuff in person. Could be dangerous.

User: "I love apps!"

Dev: "Great, here's an app for $5!"

User: "Well I don't love apps *that* much..."

Dev: "Okay, here's an app for free with ads instead!"

User: "Ads are disgusting and immoral."

Dev: "Oh, uh, here's an app for free with in-app purchases and no ads!"

User: "In-App purchases are a cancer that's destroying the industry!"

Dev: "Well I'm out of ideas. No More app."

User: "Damn greedy devs stopped updating the app I paid for 5 years ago!"

I’ll never understand why people blindly email webmaster@ domain for support when there are actual support links clearly listed on the domain website. 😐

The only larger/lasting computer manufacturer from the late 70s/early 80s that actually started with computers is Apple, everything else is by companies who pivoted or diversified.

The yellow iPhone Xr is growing on me as I watch reviews. Can't wait to see these devices in person!

Trailer and details revealed for the new "Amico" system. That's right, I said INTELLIVISION. Very excited about this! 👾🤩

🗺 You can now replace those crufty old Google Maps on your website with Apple Maps!

Apple fans often get accused of pretending Apple doesn’t make mistakes. Couldn’t be further from the truth.
We are usually the first to notice all the stuff Apple gets wrong. The difference is, we don’t immediately assume Apple is making mistakes because of sinister, evil motives

Goaliath 1.4 passed review and is live on the App Store! It always feels good to put out a new release containing features based on people's feedback. You just know its gonna make someone's day. 😊
