AppleTV 9.0/9.0.1 jailbreak is released, but really for what ? you need a usb-c and an apple developer account to even get it onboard, and no cydia interface or anything. i guess just for tickering folks. i've already gone up to atv 9.1, and i think most of the old hacks are now available as apps anyway ?

My old black plastic Macbook had a bulging battery twice. The first was swapped out for a new one for free at the Apple store and when the 2nd one eventually was causing issues I stopped using it.

Any thoughts on the pencil? I just ordered the new baby iPad Pro and feel like it could maybe negate ever buying a paper notebook again.

We use 'em at work and they're essential for the Pro. Sell a share of TSLA and get the pencil AND keyboard. Well worth it.

Yeah, I've dicked around with them at Costco and the Apple Store and was impressed. I had a Wacom tablet in undergrad and the pencil felt far more intuitive. Don't know if I want to spend the extra coin.

I say go for it. The Pencil is supposed to have amazing latency and accuracy. I've been saying for a while that a 10 inch or, even better, Mini iPad with the Pencil would make the ultimate note taking device. I'd love to see Apple Notes fully support it and translate handwriting to text all synced to the cloud and your other apps. Evernote doing the same would be even better.

My being elected as Chairman of the Board on your startup indicates otherwise.

Effective immediately, CEO salary is set to $1 / year.

Well considering the co-founder and CEO made exactly that last year along with all the officers, you wouldn't be rocking the boat.

I've heard the Pencil charges amazingly fast too. If it dies on you while working you can plug it into the iPad and get 30 mins of juice in just a couple minutes of charging time. I do wish Apple had designed some way for the Pencil to attach to the iPad like the solution used by the Surface, but I guess third party cases will eventually solve that.
post #2279 of 3215
it might seem daft but the reason pencil doesn't attach to side like surface could be a patent issue.

Pleasantly surprised by the 5se specs. Not perfect, but these things never are. Will definitely be picking one up.
