Why is everyone afraid to ask Apple a simple question? Since Apple contends it is only scanning your iPhone for photos you choose to upload to iCloud, why does Apple need to scan anything on your device? Apple, can scan the photos once they are on its servers. The most obvious possibility is dystopian.
John Kheit digs into where Apple’s CSAM scanning is taking place, arguing that where Apple reads your files is super important for privacy.
John sees Apple reversing its commitment to privacy, which he feels has broken the hearts of many apple fans, including his own.
Modern devices seem to likely have a bit flipped almost every day, and the problem only gets worse with more memory and smaller fabrication circuits, and John Kheit wants to know why all modern computer and mobile device makers haven’t moved to ECC memory.
John Kheit says that he enjoys using his Apple Pencil with the iPad Pro, but argues that it needs a few things to make it a lot more useful.
Apple should consider dramatically cutting the price of the new Mac Pro when it announces availability, and it should be releasing a more current update within 12 months to make the Mac Pro competitive.
Apple’s new Mac Pro is a great machine, but John Kheit argues that it leaves a hole for enthusiasts, and that those enthusiasts are walking away from Apple.
Operations are supposed to be what Tim Cook does best. Under Steve Jobs he was the Chief Operating Officer at Apple. And while he may have done a great job there, he is a failure at it as CEO.
Designers would win by being able to make more focused and less compromised designs; consumers would win with more choices; Apple would win with greater focused products, more revenue, better margins, and better market share.
