Apple News Items You Should Check out: Aug. 18

Since I can’t cover everything, here are some recommended articles from some other sources.

Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily round-up of must-read articles from some other great websites. To wit:

° From AppleInsider: Wedbush has raised its Apple price target to $220 from $200 because iPhone demand is holding up as the company heads into its next cycle.

° From Bloomberg: Netflix isn’t planning to let users of its new ad-supported tier download shows and movies to their devices for offline viewing, according to code found inside of the company’s iPhone app, removing a feature that customers enjoy on its regular service. 

° From The Mac Observer: Two years after a VPN provider advised Apple of a bug in iOS preventing the service from being secure, the problem still exists.

° From Cult of Mac: Best Buy is offering right now: three months of Apple’s streaming service for free.

° From MacVoices Live!: In the final segment of this MacVoices Live! discussion, Chuck Joiner, Jim Rea, David Ginsburg, Warren Sklar, Mark Fuccio, and Jeff Gamet dig deeper into the encryption and mobile device management aspects of the lost Secret Service messages, and whether text messages are only stored on your iPhone.
