Hard to believe, but I think this might actually be more stable than iOS 8.1! #fb  
An enterprising Chinese hacker has decided to ditch iOS 8 from his new iPhone 6 Plus, and instead run… Windows 98.

I know I keep posting about Apple Pay a lot lately, but it's getting interesting now that it's real and now that competitors are trying their own efforts.

I'm fed up with people being dishonest about the new search feature in Yosemite. You can have reasonable discussions about the pros and cons of this feature, but for goodness sake enough with the f...

Interesting. No more "apps", replacing them with passive services. Not sure how I feel about this. 
The experience of our primary mobile screen being a bank of app icons that lead to independent destinations is dying. And that changes… Read more…

The more I read about CurrentC, the more I cannot believe anyone would rather use this than  Pay. This is something created by people who wanted the contract, not who cared about the end-users.
Long before Apple Pay, big brick-and-mortar retail chains were conspiring to sidestep the typical 2% to 3% fees they’re charged by credit card companies..

Security is the best feature of Apple Pay. 
Apple Pay officially launched earlier this week to mostly positive reviews from iPhone users. But is it secure to use?

Double-wide credit card bills. Woohoo!

 Used ApplePay at CVS for first time, no problems. Cashier seemed to get a kick out of it - said customers starting to use it. I did check my online account and saw the transaction, fortunately not a double charge as mentioned here (phew).

If you have an iPhone 6/6 plus and iOS 8.1, set up Passbook to handle your different payment methods to prepare for using Apple Pay.

Should be interesting to follow the rollout. I'll be trying to find some local stores. Apple has posted a feedback link if you have any issues.

I've encountered same freezing on iPad3 when trying to delete some shortcuts and apps. The wiggles start stuttering and nothing deletes. My screen starts flashing as well. Have to hard boot. Anyone else experiencing this after 8.1.1 update?
I saved a web shortcut to my home screen and moments later decided to delete it. Now I've found that I can not delete ANY app or shortcut, using the method of holding a finger on any icon until they start to "wiggle" and then pressing the "x" that appears in the top left corner of deletable ...

iOS requires more reboots, resets, and switch toggles than ever before. It's truly a windows experience now in that regard.

The new Flipboard is killing it. I'm going to post most of my Apple related stuff there probably. With the Flipboard extension, it's so easy. Google+ makes it difficult to post into a community.

Get Flipboard!

Great to see this, flipboard was one of the first app on my original iPad. Always liked the way trickles are presented and wanted to use it as single point to catch all information. But struggled with the handling. Never used it that much. ... But it keeps getting better and better... Two new magazines added...

I've definitely seen this. Actually iCloud causes hangs in many places, including the iOS settings app.
iOS 8.1 shipped with a serious bug affecting apps that use iCloud. If you have seen apps randomly hang, especially on launch, it’s likely you are seeing the effects of this issue. Many apps use iCloud for a variety of data storage needs, so even apps that you were not aware were using iCloud may exhibit issues related to this bug. For Users For the more technical explanation of the problem, read the bug report I filed with Apple. I will in...

This is incredible. I know it's not iOS, but still fun for Mac users to see.
A visual comparison showing the incredible progress made in display technology over the past 30 years.
