| Tech Board|| Opinions on Spotify Vs. Beats Music - Scoop on 9/18/14 at 7:06 pm|
I put this on the Music Board but not sure about their traffic, plus they probably only listen to vinyl. Figured it is OK for the Tech Board.
I've used Spotify since the day it rolled out in the US and I have no complaints at all. Love it.
However, I updated my Apple TV to see that a Beats ap...

Life is about lessons.
Apple is going to have more stock for pre-orders and if something goes wrong the customer service will be unimaginably better than dealing with a damn carrier.
Apple customer service isn't as magical as it was 4 or 5 years ago, but it is still some of the best around.

I just read the details of this thread. How is this Apple's fault? From what I understand you ordered through AT&T and the phone would have come from AT&T's allotted stock. Apple had nothing to do with it from what I am seeing....

Out of curiosity, what time that night did your order go through with AT&T that night?
Apple didn't go live until around 2:18 and after being timed out 3 times I was processed at 2:28. ...

I hung in there with Apple because I trust Apple a hell of a lot more than I trust AT&T and mine is on schedule. I will be making sweet, sweet love to it in 24 hours....

I used it a lot today and found that the voice messages I sent and received averaged 2-5 seconds with a lot of them around 2 sec. I just can't see that racking up to be a problem.
Disclaimer: I don't care because I'm still on that sweet, sweet unlimited teet and it will take a front loader to pul...

With this being the first release after a major redesign, I wasn't expecting a lot and have been pleasantly surprised.
In the time I have been using it, it seems to me that they drilled down to the things people use their phone for constantly and made those things better. Rather than a lot of "wo...

Another thing I stumbled across in iMessage, if you hit details when texting someone, there are several cool things. You can text that person your location with one tap and below that it has a tile layout of every picture and video you have sent or received with that person.

My favorite features so far:
I love that in messages, when you want to send a picture, you scan scroll through your pictures right there in the message and not be taken out to the camera roll.
I'm digging answering texts without leaving where I am.
I like the home double click for recently ...

Yeah. I've tried signing for it and leaving the signature and it didn't work. They are strict with it.
My wife knows the UPS and FedEx drivers in the area and usually snags it for me but she can't Friday. May end up giving my son a hookie day to stay home and catch it if he doesn't have any test...
