    I just got my new 16” M1 MacBook Pro set up, and it’s time to get the old one wiped and ready for the next owner! I’m going to wipe it, but I figured it’s best to get my Google account off it from the preferences app anyway. But when I try to delete it with the - I get a pop up telling me to...

    All iPads Why doesn't Apple allow innovation?

    I am an Android convert, although in reality I am not convinced that I want to stay with Apple products. I have downloaded Google apps, thinking that I would get the same performance that I experienced from the app on my Android device. For instance, the Google Maps app on my iPad is limited to...

    CarPlay Google maps in Carplay suddenly stopped working properly

    Can anyone solve this problem for me? Google Maps has suddenly stopped working properly when I plug my iPhone into my car and use Carplay. I can type in a destination but, instead of the immediate route coming up on the screen with voice instructions, all I get is a map. As I go along the route...

    MS Office vs Google Workspace

    I'm looking to migrate to a new suite of productivity apps for my small business, and the Google Workspace (Docs, Sheets, Slides) is one consideration. I've used MS Office for many many years, but it's starting to become a little bloated and expensive for my needs. I want to move away from 365...

    Other So Youtube...

    What is your purpose of holding back specific iOS/iPadOS features? Greed? Everyone was super pumped about 4K video coming to the app, but no one asked for the updated resolution picker. Everyone is super pumped that Picture in Picture is coming, but that has not shown up yet even for premium...

    Google Chrome Phoning Home About Apple Music Stream

    Seems every time the next song comes up on Apple Music streams (played in the Music app on my Mac), Little Snitch pops up with a request for Chrome to connect to the Google servers. Anyone else notice this? Happens like clockwork.

    iCloud Should Apple be doing more to compete with Google Workspace, et al?

    iCloud has a lot going for it provided you're in the Apple eco-system, but when it comes to larger productivity and business-centric tasks, I'd argue that Apple's platforms just aren't as scalable. Regardless, do you feel that this is area Apple should try to improve? Would you pay money for a...

    No updates from Google since iOS 14.3 Privacy Labels came out

    Funny how companies like Google (the ones you know don't respect your privacy) stopped updating their apps weekly like they usually do since iOS started. No more "bug fixes and improvements" BS. I wonder why? 🤔

But the problem is that since yesterday I suddenly...
