Must be nice to be a premium subscription video entertainment provider and be allowed to use your own payment system instead of Apple's.

I am sure that distinction makes total sense to all developers and other app makers who offer services in other categories like music or apps

Me: Hm rather than pay for more iCloud Drive space, I’d like to turn off iCloud Drive sync. I can back up those local files myself elsewhere.

Apple: The only option is to remove your local files and keep them in iCloud Drive. Enjoy Googling ways to deal with this. Happy Sunday! pic.twitter.com/viTjkwKk9c

God Microsoft’s iPad apps are so much better than Google’s. Word and Outlook especially feel like they belong on this device, not like they’re there begrudingly. Gmail and GDrive and GDocs on the iPad work like pic.twitter.com/YBxYPhA5fu

One thing I’ve been thinking about this week is that the iPadOS windowing system is more punitive when you make a mistake or do something you didn’t mean to. Harder to undo / return to your previous state.

Apple apparently hates the idea of an open interconnect on the iPhone so much that it would rather give you NOTHING than give you USB-Chttps://t.co/n6VejZYLC8

Android 10 is official: that’s it, that’s the name.

Google quits quaint tradition, quelling the quandary created by the quixotic quest to answer a quadrillion querulous questions about desert names. I have qualms and feel queasy, but it is less quirky.https://t.co/KB7vi5Xfd6

Reminder to people (like me) who like to get the cool new tech thing first: the Apple Card isn't a cool new tech thing. It's a credit card that has a really nice iPhone app for managing it.

It might be good for you - but maybe not! Give it a think.https://t.co/15aLWP0qJd

Call me crazy but I would use gestures on the TouchID sensor on the Mac.

- Swipe right to dismiss notification
- Swipe left to open Today view
- Swipe down to open notifications
- Swipe up for Mission Control

This is a bad idea Apple should not do it but I would use it.

It is super disappointing that Apple didn’t put any work into these apps. iOS apps on the Mac are starting to feel like a pretty sweet solution.

I wanted Apple to go hard and show developers the right way to do these. This is not that.

This is the worst part of Spotify.

If you told me that carriers are secretly bribing Spotify to make it hard to just see your downloaded music and thereby force more data to be used by streaming, I would believe you.https://t.co/PTUF47TBg2

One notable thing Apple told me: it won't try to force all Catalyst sales through the Mac App Store. If you convert your iOS app to the Mac, you can sell it however you want without paying Apple a 30% commission. 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

Fire from @gruber: "Maybe if this works out well, they can start making payday loans at Apple stores.”

As Apple gets into banking, cable-esque TV bundling, etc, it enters spaces where consumers HATE the companies providing those services. Real risk.https://t.co/8PBskzRIud

Sundar Pichai is happy with the Google Play store’s 30% cut. "I think there's a value exchange there and it's been the industry standard.”

At least the Play Store isn’t an absolute monopoly on Android - but I still think 30% is too high on any app store.

iPhone sales were Notch what Apple expected so it will have to FaceID the music on lower revenues then move like Lightning to ummmm Springboard to new businesses to AirPower new money streams and uh… er… Headphone Jack sure end there.

1/ Fighting text spam is laudable, but make no mistake: this reclassification of SMS means that if a carrier doesn’t want to send your text, it doesn’t have to.

Dongles are the new socks.

Everybody asks for them because everybody needs them. Nobody really wants to give them. And when you open the present, you are vaguely relieved but also disappointed.

It is totally reasonable to expect that Fortnite could be the biggest game on Android. The biggest game on Android won’t be in Google’s store. How embarrassing for Google is that?

Also, millions of kids will get familiar with sideloading apps without the store.

These scooters completely changed my experience in Austin - for the better. Too hot to walk, way more convenient than cars.

The faster cities figure out regulations and social norms form around them (don't be jerks), the better. https://t.co/QlDuEhwhQ2
