  1. Epic. Apple conveniently releases an update in late 2017 – conveniently conincidingnwith the Christmas Season, because as we all know, the Magi brought the Christ Child Gold, Frankincense, Myrhh, and a new iPhoneX because the last update left His iPhone 6+ running like a Tandy Supercomputer (humor). Now, after months of people telling me “I can’t hear you” on the new whizbang X, turns out Apple has violated canine rights again with a phone that has a problem with…the microphone.

    Beta. Can we all say “Beta”?

    Looks like in the frantic, hair on fire failed effort to include touch biometrics with facial recognition, some of the finer points of what actually makes a phone a practical tool has been apparently overlloked.

    Gee, do I send in my 6+ for the “privilege” of Forking (not the word I want to use) over “only” $49 for a new battery to solve the abysmally slow 10+ second app load time (and how did Apple miss THAT, one wonders), or send in my new, $1000 POS that I bought because of their chicanery in the first place?

    Looks like lose-lose all around.
