    • I really like to think of you as a responsible Tech reviewer how come no one is mentioning the fact is that if Apple keeps the air tags exclusively for Apple then all Apple customers can now stock any Android user without them knowing and jerry-rig everything showed that the speaker can easily be removed so the beeping after 3 days is meaningless this area of the industry needs to be regulated by the government anybody who cannot access the find my app are now potential victims of being stalked

      Prerit SharmaPrerit SharmaPřed 6 dny
  • Very interesting video. As a consumer, my question is, if I can get away by using apple's inbuilt tracking app with apple's air tag, why should I download a third party app and buy a third party device? A third party app means one more account and one more password to remember..!!. Where as If I use Air tag, I only need to remember my apple ID and password. I know it is bad for third party businesses but hey if consumers have given much better and simpler options, they will take it right? even if it is cost other businesses to go out of business.

  • Apple can target new products (HW and apps) that they know will be popular precisely because of the success of those third party companies. Nothing wrong with that. But knowing full well they will tank entire small companies the minute they introduce their version of the product, a fair approach would be to partner in some way with the companies they’re about to wipe out otherwise. It seems naive but it would be a way for Apple to acknowledge that some of their innovation wouldn’t exist at all if it wasn’t for other startups. But again.... those startups wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Apple products in the first place 😅

    Johann HolzmannJohann HolzmannPřed 10 dny
  • Does Apple having a leverage on their own product is bad? Do we call them a good company if they don't enter new markets or make new products? Leverage exists for everyone. I hope even MKB has leverage in CSbuild! We are not sure what we do if were in the position of Apple. It's easy to comment being outside. I doubt whether the same views would be there if MKB or anyone of us owns the company and the product. Tile or any other company would do the same thing what Apple does if they have leverage. It's not about Apple or Tile. It's business and they function the same way to survive.

Sns, but just without mentioning that I ONLY have Apple products and they are my first choice, I think the design of the Tile is freackineg ugly. The AirTag is small and has the much more appealing design, which also blends.

  • !!!Big Missing FEATURE on AIRTAG!!! You missed one big advantage that the TILE has over the airtag! You can press a button on your tile to find your phone. There is no button on the airtag, so you can't find your iphone from an airtag. Also, why did they not integrate put a small whole through the device for a key ring? The stupid price Apple charges for fobs doubles the price. Tile has a better design form factor, and more choices in form factors.

  • In the tile example, apple could be required to allow tile app users to take advantage of the Apple find my network without an Apple ID then both Apple and tiles networks are merged and the end result is an overall larger mesh network But a major problem with 3rd party apps, is they are almost always full of ads and other bullshit that OEM offerings do not include

  • Apple should be allowed to do with their own ecosystem as they please. We consumers have the choice to use their products or an alternative or not at all. And that is not a paradox. Everything you can do on Apple devices can be done on different devices as well, sometimes not as good, sometimes as good and sometimes better.

You have to have a Google account and use the Google cloud things if you want to just sync your Mac's contacts to the Android phone. There's a crappy Android file transfer app, but that's it. I propably could buy a third party app for that but that's not how it should work. So I switched back to an iPhone.

  • Big companies always take advantage of small companies that have good products. They copy and show it as a new invention (they did), sometimes as a new product. The sad thing for me is, when Steve Jobs lived at least, Apple tried to innovate. But now, always have the same technology or make the screen bigger, new color, etc. Is like..."Give a dog a bad name and hang it."
