Photo battle between the iPhone and the Pixel has a surprising winner

Pixel Vs iPhone

For as amazing as camera quality on the iPhone is today, the original iPhone camera was nothing to write home about. Equipped with nothing more than a fixed-focus 2-megapixel camera, the original iPhone delivered subpar pictures even compared to other devices at the time.

Apple, though, eventually started throwing a lot of money at camera development. Before long, it seemed that each successive iPhone routinely set a new bar for mobile camera quality that competitors simply couldn’t keep up with. That said, the mobile landscape is always changing and Apple now has some stiff competition when it comes to mobile photography. What’s more, there’s a strong case to be made that Apple these days finds itself playing catch-up when it comes to overall camera quality.

Apple Defends iPhone App Fees

Simplicity is supposed to be a selling point for Apple Inc.’s iPhone. It may be a problem at the U.S. Supreme Court.

The court will hear arguments Monday on accusations that Apple is using its market dominance to jack up prices for iPhone apps. A ruling against Apple, letting a lawsuit go forward, could add to pressure the company already faces to cut the 30 percent commission it charges on app sales.

The case turns on what happens when iPhone users buy something at the Apple App Store. In allowing the suit, a federal appeals court said the transaction is a simple one in which consumers buy directly from Apple. Apple says it’s more complicated, with the company serving as a middleman connecting app developers with users.

The distinction is critical because of a 1977 Supreme Court ruling that says only direct purchasers of a product can collect damages for overpricing under federal antitrust law. That decision was designed in part to ensure companies don’t have to pay twice for the same misconduct.

Apple is part of an app economy that will grow from $ 82 billion last year to $ 157 billion in 2022, according to App Annie projections.

Apple and its tech-industry allies say a decision allowing the consumer lawsuit could open other companies that run online marketplaces and platforms to expensive antitrust claims. A broad ruling could affect Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Amazon.com Inc., Facebook Inc., Etsy Inc. and DoorDash Inc., Apple and its supporters say.

‘DoorDash to Etsy’

“Any matchmaking service that operates on the internet from DoorDash to Etsy is going to be subject to duplicative damages,” said Marianela Lopez-Galdos, director of competition and regulatory policy at the Computer & Communications Industry Association, which backs Apple in the case.

But Apple’s critics say its control over the App Store makes it unlike other internet marketplaces. Apple decides what apps can be sold, gives developers a limited number of prices they can charge and tells users the App Store is the only place they can get apps, lawyers pressing the suit say.

When a user buys an app, Apple collects the money, keeps the 30 percent commission and gives the rest to the developer. The company told the high court it passed $ 26.5 billion on to developers last year.

The app store is “really unique,” said Mark Rifkin, one of the lawyers pressing the suit. “Apple has put itself in the distribution chain, and it makes us deal with Apple in a way no one else does.”

Apple says the focus of the lawsuit is the 30 percent commission, something it says is paid by the developers, not the app purchasers. Although the consumers say they pay for the commissions through higher app prices, Apple says those are the type of “pass-through” damages barred under the Supreme Court’s 1977 Illinois Brick v. Illinois ruling.

Hundreds of Millions

“The party first and directly injured by an alleged overcharge has the entire damages claim,” Apple argued in court papers. The company’s lead Supreme Court lawyer, Dan Wall, declined to discuss the case in advance of the argument.

The suit, filed in federal court in Oakland, California, seeks class-action status and potentially hundreds of millions of dollars.

Apple’s supporters include ACT/The App Association, a developer trade group whose sponsors include Apple, Microsoft and eBay. The group says the appeals court ruling threatens to disrupt what has been an innovation-friendly system for developers and platforms.

App Association President Morgan Reed said the appeals court misunderstood the relationship between developers and platforms, improperly looking at platforms as distributors that buy from vendors and resell to customers, rather than as conduits that simply connect the two.

That distinction “sounds small” but is “at the core of a multitrillion-dollar global industry,” Reed said.

‘Intangible Rights’

Thirty-one states support the consumers, urging the Supreme Court to allow the lawsuit and also to eliminate the direct-purchaser requirement altogether by overturning the Illinois Brick decision.

“Illinois Brick’s rule is increasingly difficult to apply in the modern world, with its growing commerce in intangible rights through new platforms,” the states argued. “This case is a prime example.”

Most states already allow downstream purchasers to collect damages, and the group says courts have been able to ensure that companies don’t have to double-pay. The states are led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, a Democrat.

Antitrust cases sometimes, but not always, divide the Supreme Court along ideological lines. In its most recent term, the court voted 5-4 to throw out a lawsuit that accused American Express Co. of thwarting competition by prohibiting merchants from steering customers to cards with lower fees.

The court will rule by June in the latest case, Apple v. Pepper, 17-204.

How did we actually survive without this new iPhone hack?

Minds blown.

Words by Emily Lambe

Food blogger and now certified genius, Krissy Brierre-Davis, discovered an iPhone hack that sent Twitter into shock.

Last Saturday, the Atlanta-based blogger stumbled upon a hack that makes moving the cursor way easier. Just click and hold the space bar instead of trying to drag it manually.

‘How come you guys never told me this iPhone trick? I feel duped,’ she tweeted with a screenshot of her discovery.

‘I thought I was an idiot for never having discovered this gem myself,’ Brierre-Davis told BuzzFeed News. ‘My mind was blown. Literally.’

The hack isn’t just limited to the space bar. You can press anywhere on the keyboard for it to work, according to one user.

And it doesn’t stop there! Pressing down while holding the cursor makes highlighting easier as well.

Apparently, we’ve been sleeping on this for three years. The 3D Touch feature was introduced in 2015 with the iPhone 6s.

It’s safe to say most of us feel pretty shocked by this monumental discovery. ‘This is LIFE CHANGING INFORMATION,’ a user tweeted. Even Mike Issac, a Technology Reporter for the New York Times, is amazed. He tweeted, ‘this just changed my entire life.’

Well, it’s safe to say this new iPhone discovery has changed the way we type forever, but how on earth did we not notice this before?

Apple launches repair program for iPhone X units with faulty displays

iPhone X

Though not a widespread problem by any means, some iPhone X users over the past few months have experienced issues with non-responsive and temperamental displays. In light of this, Apple today launched a new replacement program for iPhone X users who have encountered this particular touch issue.

Per an Apple support document, impacted devices tend to exhibit one or two behaviors. Specifically, impacted iPhone X units will either not respond to touch at all or will react even when not touched. Either way, it’s undoubtedly a frustrating usability issue, especially for a device that was priced in excess of $ 999.

Apple might have positioned its new iPhone XR as the “budget” iPhone of the current generation, but if you’re looking for a recent iPhone and want to save a few hundred dollars, Apple has introduced an intriguing deal you should check out. Recently, Apple began selling refurbished 64GB iPhone 8 models from its online store. That’s $ 100 cheaper than the current suggested retail price of a brand new iPhone 8 from Apple or a third-party retailer.

Apple tests and certifies all of its refurbished devices itself and includes a 1-year warranty, so even if something goes wrong, you’re still covered for a year. Apple guarantees that all refurbished devices come with a brand new battery, a new outer shell, and a new white box, but you might not get the original packaging.
