The Bobbsey Twins are the principal characters of what was, for many years, the Stratemeyer Syndicate's longest-running series of children's novels, penned under the pseudonym Laura Lee Hope. The first of 72 books was published in 1904, the last in 1979, with a separate series of 30 books published from 1987 through 1992.

Android Tablet and Phone here. Apple has pissed me off from way before i-shit times, when I had to use their shitty desktops to use physics/math software. Fuck em double.

They also have like no support for older computers so basically fuck you if you don't update.

Apple is making iOS7 compatible with 3 year old phones and three year old iPads.  That's well within reason.

And even if you think that's still too soon, Apple's approach prevents fragmentation which is still a big problem on Android.

Yet there are plenty of companies out there, some of our clients included, that rely on that demographic.  It's just extra hassle on our developers when they can be focusing on exciting new technologies and features on jelly bean.

I'm gonna say the Nook HD+. It's currently $149 for the 16GB and $179 for the 32GB since B&N are getting out of the tablet business. MicroSD slot, 1920x1280 9" screen, Bluetooth, etc. The screen is probably the best in class for the size range. They've added the play store and all the google stuff (Chrome, maps, etc) so it's pretty much a regular android tablet once you install a new launcher.

The question to be asked is whether people who pay nothing or little up front for phones are worth considering when targeting platform versions. Since they're less likely to monetize well, it's easily possible to focus on 4.0+.

My iPad is nearly 3 years old now.

To support my iPad, I needed a newer version of Xcode. The code/profile/whatever components weren't included, even though my Xcode was installed WAY more recently than my iPad purchase.

To get the new version of Xcode, I needed OS X Sierra.

To get Sierra, I backed up everything and pulled the trigger.

Under default behavior, now my Mac has backed up my Downloads and Documents folder (all my business stuff) into iCloud. When I asked it to stop, it wants to delete my local copies of all that on all my computers.

Apparently all I need to do is drag things from my local iCloud instance to their previous designated location. But this is the most ass-backward way to do this. Literally backward: why not delete the instance from iCloud and leave the originals, you know, WHERE THEY ALREADY ARE?

iOS 11.2.1 update came out today. Recently? I learned my lesson about wireless updates previously, so I connected to my Mac and started the process, of course backing up before letting it do anything.

I check back in 20 minutes, and the damned thing is in Recovery Mode, where it wants to be connected to a Mac with iTunes before it will do anything else. Well, shit, what do you think you're attached to? Then iTunes itself appears to be crashed and unresponsive, but what's actually happening is that iTunes has put its warning dialog on my second monitor, even though nothing else associated with iTunes was on the second monitor. :maf

The iPhone quit mid-restore several more times, and finally it successfully updated on the sixth attempt.

Now it's downloading its previous apps and other contents from wi-fi instead of the local backup because fuck me, I guess.

I need the phone since I'm going to the city tonight for T-day with expats, and also because I've got an appointment at the Apple Store to have them look at my iMac. I don't want to put the old girl down, I think she's still got life in her, but she's been hard-rebooting every 10 minutes or so. I don't expect a computer from 2009 to last forever, so this isn't really a complaint so much as just feeling sad.

Fuck my iPhone 6 though.

Update: I schlepped very heavy my 2009 iMac downtown, and carried it into three different shops which claimed online to do Mac repairs. Only one of them was willing to take it, but said it would take 2-3 weeks for them to repair it, because they'd track down a specific problem, whereas Apple would swap the whole unit out. This is true for iOS devices, but that store is not correct about how Apple handles OS X/macOS devices. I bailed, and went to my appointment.

Instead of staring at me fearfully like the other stores, the Apple staff took the massive machine off my hands, placed it back on their shelf before even confirming my appointment. n.b. I hate the appointment policy at Apple Stores, but it worked for me yesterday; the guy behind the counter spent half an hour with me, going through the various hardware checks they can run and, when those all came back clean, he suggested that I could try rolling back to a previous version of the OS. That sounded like hoodoo, but so far it appears to be working.

I let my iMac run all night, it didn't reboot once. It looks like the old gal has a little life left in her. And the whole boutique experience really ended up working out for me last night.

Yo, I had to lug around a 2007 iMac in a city once and it was a fucking nightmare, I feel your pain. Why'd you go to the other stores first besides the Apple store though? The few experiences I've had with off-site "apple certified" places left me with very negative impressions, but the Apple store has gone smoothly pretty much every time

:respect

Via the route I took to reach Shinsaibashi Apple Store, the other shops were less than 100m out of the way. The station at which I arrive neighbors an electronics retail hub. I had 90 minutes, so I figured why not try? Third party places in Japan are less sketchy than the ones I've visited in the USA. At the very least, if they're not sure that they can help, the Japanese clerks will politely demure.

So I wasn't completely sure Apple would even receive the iMac for repair. As it turns out, they wouldn't have been able to help if it were a hardware issue; they only go back 7 years for support. After that, they suggest the customer find a third-party repair solution.  :-\

The bright side is that Apple confirmed nothing wrong with the hardware, and reinstalled a less onerous version of OS X. Since then, it has not rebooted once! It's been running consistently since then. Seriously happy that it was a free "repair" and I don't have to put Ol' Yeller down.

Confirming what everybody basically already knows.... Apple does indeed throttle the performance of old phones in newer OS updates.... ostensibly to help maintain battery life on older batteries. So youíre 2+ year old iPhone really is a little t slower than it was over time.

Theoretically, it could. My iPad Air 2 is slower under current (11.2.1?) than it had been. But iPads have sick batteries and CPU compared to the phones, IIRC.

It makes it so that replacing the battery on your iPhone isnít even really worth it. Iíd rather replace my battery for 70 bucks after three years and have snappy performance than for Apple to slowly kill my phone.

Edit: I havenít noticed my air 2 slowing down much. But iPads have always had longer lifespans than the phones. I suspect my air 2 will go at least a few more years before I feel bothered to replace it.

I donít think so. People still use ancient iPads without much complaint. I think from the original story this applies to non-plus sized phones.

iOS 11 on my 7 plus, even after several updates, seems to have killed my battery life by about 25%.

But Apple itself doesn't have a policy for "replace battery." They've got a flat repair rate which covers anything that's wrong with your iOS device, and it's exorbitant enough that a tremendous amount of third-party repair businesses have cropped up. Apple doesn't benefit from replacing batteries, but this "hidden" feature does appear to make their hardware run for longer, but at slower speeds.

iOS 11 tricks people into thinking Bluetooth and wi-fi turns off
Hereís another rude thing: in the new iOS Control Center, you think youíre turning off Bluetooth and wi-fi by deselecting their icons. But youíre not. Toggling these features into the off position simply disables them. This really pissed off security researchers who believed many users would feel tricked into a false sense of security that their devices werenít talking to other devices when they actually were.

Honestly, if what happened with my previous iPhone wasn't enough to get me to switch to Android, the shit I've seen this year with the people at my firm and iOS 11 would have done it.  So many problems.

Essentially, I donít think the idea of throttling the phone to lengthen battery life is batshit stupid, but it should be an option in setttings and not something that is turned on that you canít turn off. Or at least recommend give some sort of notice like ďyour battery life is now <75% of a new battery, we recommend replacing the battery at an authorized Apple repair center to avoid tgrottling and unexpected shutdowns. click here to make an appointment.Ē

Instead it just seems like planned obsolescence to sctively make the older models perform worse than they could. Sure they have an ambivalent explanation, but Iím sure Tim Cook is aware that this has the follow on benefit of making the new phone look even better in comparison.

:uguu

I've been this close (**holds fingers microns apart**) several times. The one time I bought a refurbished PowerBook, it was the biggest lemon I've ever encountered in 35 years of computing. It had stuff wrong with it all the time, which nearly made me ditch Apple. The little Japan-exclusive Panasonic notebook I had from work was better in every way except the touch-pad.

When I took it in for repairs the first time, I hadn't known that Apple had decided to "Think Different" about turning shit in for repair as well. I'd taken a train and a half-hour walk to the Apple Store in Shinsaibashi, only to be told I couldn't see anyone without an appointment, and without one I'd have to wait 6 hours for the next opening. I just about flipped my goddamned lid.

The next couple of times it went in for repairs, I had my appointment, but they tried to tell me I'd damaged it myself. It had ARRIVED damaged, but they were unwilling to take the blame for it. Apple employees at HQ have been baffled why they didn't just give me a new unit and move on. I think Japan assumed the foreigner (me) was trying to pull a fast one. My loathing increased.

When an old iPod Touch had a headphone jack problem, they offered to repair it for ⅔ the price of a new iPod Touch. There was no other repair option. $2 headphone jack, they wanted $270 to fix it, but they'd give me $50 credit toward a new purchase if I liked. I was struck dumb.

When I tried getting Apple to look at my iPhone 4S, they claimed that there was nothing they could do about its (now legendary) battery life. I've heard the 4S called "The World's Greatest Corded Phone." They offered to let me buy a newer phone for some exhorbitant amount.

Anyway, yeah ó I have strong doubts about the Apple ecosystem, and my next computer's going to be a mid-range desktop PC so I can play Steam games and have decent graphic capabilities.

No it has this dumb "offload unused apps" option that arbitrarily decides to delete apps from the phone without deleting the icon, putting a little cloud icon next to the app name indicating that it's in the cloud I guess. My phone died playing hearthstone last night and after it restarted guess what? Hearthstone gone for some distinguished mentally-challenged reason

I don't remember turning it on, but it's possible. It's so weird though, it also unloaded the default Maps app a week or two ago, which I don't use a lot but seems like it would be something permanently installed.

Haha~! Yeah, you've got a bug. There's no way Apple'd be unloading their own app. It's horrible just trying to get rid of Health.app or News.app

Fragmentation on Android isn't a problem if you're not a 14-year old Latino girl who's given the cheapest Android phone her parents think they can get away with.

According to Google's own stats there's far more 14-year old Latino girls with cheap parents than previously realised.

4-5 years later and this still applies. :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol :doge Googie be slow on getting "Project Treble" up sooner than they did. Shame OEMs are trying to avoid it by releasing more Nougat/7 phones since if they release 8-phones they have to support Treble out of box and that allows folks to just flash a ROM of Stock Android. :doge

On topic though: Despite being Steve's pick, I feel like Jobs would be rolling in his grave in pure anger over how Apple under Cook has turned out. I like Apple, but holy shit there's absolutely no reason to get OS X anymore. :'(


Also $5000 Pro Mac.  :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl They are fucking insane.
