The nature of our gadgets these days is such that, well, things go wrong. Most of the time they get fixed. Hell, a simple restart takes care of about nine out of 10 problems; Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Watch. Here’s a problem that a restart won’t fix.
Humankind is under assault from traffic on the information superhighway. Fake news, fake outrage, link bait headlines, and yellow journalism are running rampant roughshod across our ability to understand it all and filter accordingly.
Fake News? Most people don’t understand the difference between opinion and perspective vs. actual news. Instead, too many believe that Sean Hannity and Anderson Cooper are purveyors of the news. They are not. They are entertainers, visual disk jockeys riding herd on events of the day; perspectives, opinions, moderation.
Yes, Apple has an F-ing problem it cannot fix. F. As in Forbes. Examples?
- Forbes Has A Bad Problem With Apple – hint; it’s not Apple’s fault.
- Why Apple Doesn’t ‘Just Work’ Anymore – hint; it never did.
- Look At Apple’s Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, Thanks To Forbes’ Writers – hint; hit pieces are in the eyes of the beholders; behold!
- Apple’s New iPhones Have An Unfixable Problem – hint; no they don’t because Forbes is unfixable.
The last one on the list is the latest misleading meme from Forbes link bait hit piece writers who cannot provide proper insight or analysis, so they spend their time spinning tales of ridiculousness at Apple’s expense.
Almost half the smartphones in the good old U.S. of A are iPhones. Big target. Easy pickings. Nobody verifies the argument.
While they hide some great secret features, even Apple has been forced to admit its new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max were shipped with problems.
Apple admitted no such thing. Unless an update to iOS 12 is a tacit admission of failure. It is not. Software is not hardware. Software can be improved.
New tests confirm there is one it can do nothing about…
About? About what? Battery life. Someone did a test and iPhone Xs and Xs Max have bad battery life.
Putting to bed questions about real-world performance, popular YouTube site PhoneBuff enlisted the help of robotics and discovered that for all the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max’s incredible CPU performance, battery life is a mess. Particularly the bigger model.
Oh no! How will Apple ever recover? Apple is doomed. iPhones have a problem that Apple cannot fix. Wait. What? Let’s do what Gordon Kelly and Forbes never do. Investigate. As it turns out, someone found a flaw in the battery test which spurred someone else to do a different test with a different result.
Apple didn’t even need to get involved.
Today, we’re getting a look at another test that sees the iPhone XS Max beat out the Note 9, Google Pixel 3 XL, and Sony Xperia XZ3. Notably, the XS Max has the smallest battery capacity of all four phones and was still able to come out on top.
What a shame Forbes does not hire investigative reporters and writers with enough common sense not to publish the first gab smack that crosses their single eyebrow.
The XS max lasted just over six hours during the intense testing, with the Note 9 shutting down just about 12 minutes before that. The Pixel 3 XL came in third as it powered down after about five hours of testing.
Oh. I see. So, iPhone Xs Max has better battery life and Apple didn’t even need to try to fix what Forbes said could not be fixed.
Where’s the Forbes follow up? Where is the apology? Forbes goes down in flames. Again. Oh, the humanity!
