Apple News Items You Should Check out: Aug. 16

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 MyHealthyApple: The Apple Watch could become a self-check tool for symptoms of heart attack (myocardial infarction).

° From CNET: CNET senior video producer and diabetic Justin Eastzer says that a combination of a continuous glucose monitor (GCM) and his Apple Watch saved his life.

° From AppleInsider: Warren Buffett-owned firm Berkshire Hathaway purchased nearly 4 million more Apple shares in the second quarter of 2022, according to regulatory documents.

° From The Verge: Apple is allegedly threatening to fire an employee over a viral TikTok video.

° From MacRumors: Zoom has released a new version of its macOS app with a fix for a security vulnerability affecting the app’s automatic updates feature.

° From 9to5Mac: Crunchyroll says its app will no longer support all Apple TV models. A month from now, anime fans will have to opt for different options to watch their favorite shows. Here’s what you need to know about this change.

° From The Mac Observer: Thanks to an approved proposal from Google, you might see more political emails in your Gmail inbox this year than before.

° From MacVoices Live!: On the new episode, the panel of Chuck Joiner, Jim Rea, David Ginsburg, Warren Sklar, Mark Fuccio, and Jeff Gamet take a look at the cancellation of Spotify’s Car Thing, and whether it is a symptom of what seems to be their “quick hit” mentality. The discussion then turns to Apple Pay, and a claim that they are overcharging the banks and credit card companies. (Part 1)
