Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily roundup of must-read articles from some other great websites:
° From the Financial Times (a subscription is required to read the entire article): Apple has trying to move operations away from China for a decade; if I ever does, the move will take another 20 years.
° From 9to5Mac: Heat has been added to the Spotify vs. Apple battle as seven other companies and organizations have co-signed a letter calling for “swift and decisive” regulatory action to be taken against the Cupertino company.
° From MacRumors: The second-generation HomePod introduced yesterday will offer a Sound Recognition feature that allows the speaker to detect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm sounds and send a notification to the user’s iPhone if either of those sounds are identified.
° From Cult of Mac: Don’t think you’re going to add a new HomePod 2 to your original HomePod to make a stereo pair. It’s not possible because pairs can only be made with two of the same model.
° From Macworld: Apple has pushed up prices around the world, with only the U.S. escaping the inflation. Are the UK, Europe, Canada and Australia paying the price for these difficult economic times?
° From Gizmodo: Apple is facing a third class-action lawsuit over data collection practices.
° From MacVoices Live!: You can find LOTS of short videos from the recent Consumer Electronics Show exclusively on the MacVoicesTV channel on YouTube.
