Apple is DEAD, and the industry killed it

by birtanpublished on February 19, 2021

Apple has been creating world-class hardware and world-class software we've also been creating a growing collection of world-class services and that is what today is all about service service service service services services service our service services services services services services our services our services services home that is the new Apple and I don't lack it daily tech news in a way that doesn't suck of course you do that subscribe button in turn on notifications so you don't miss the next episode yo what's going on guys welcome back to front page Tech and course show that gives you all these

Tech news one geek that is me to another that is you let let me clarify let's talk about the Apple event I'll tell you what I think all right listen listen let me start off by saying that what we saw today Apple moving into services is exactly what I've been saying they needed to do for a couple years now this is a very very needed very necessary change this is a good thing for Apple people just don't buy new hardware any more year over a year in fact year over year new hardware sales are declining and this isn't just an apple problem this is an industry

Problem an apple can't stop but nobody can stop it so now it's time to pivot and this is a very needed necessary change instead of trying to sell more and more hardware and depending on that year-over-year it's time to sell services to the people that already have the hardware today we officially got Tim Cook's Apple this is the new Apple it's a necessary needed change like I said but I don't like change I'm kind of sad out with the old in with the new the old Apple is dead in the industry killed it so thanks a lot everybody else we started out with Apple News Plus and I

Think this is one of the best things they talked about today and in this move Apple properly single-handedly saved the magazine industry it's a 9.99 so it's a $10 monthly subscription it's available today and you in Canada and that price even includes family sharing so currently if you subscribe to Apple news plus there's like 300 magazines to choose from so instead of paying a monthly subscription to each individual magazine that could cost you thousands of thousands of dollars like they mentioned on stage like everyone subscribes to magazines

Yeah okay instead all of those magazines one monthly price ten bucks a month I think that's a really great value it is if you know how to read which I do not then we got to the Apple card and we told you this was gonna happen we told you this weeks and weeks and weeks ago I'm pretty sure the first time we ever talked about it was like a year ago Apple partnered with goldman sachs and because that you get a brand new credit card you can apply and then if you get approved the card is actually stored digitally in the wallet app and that's where you can like see your statements

Your balance payment due dates all that stuff the app also helps you track locations and retailers that you've been to so you can actually browse through your transactions and remember where you spent all your goddamn money the card itself even generates new security codes each and every time you make a purchase in fact if you're looking for a credit card number it ain't even on the thing however if you are looking to buy something from a site that does not yet support Apple card but takes like your normal 16 digit credit card information you can generate one and since it is

Powered by goldman sachs and mastercard i get you 2 percent cash back rewards at 3% on Apple purchases and that's paid daily into your Apple pay accounts that you can then go ahead and use towards paying your credit card balance off or in-app purchases or transferring monies to your friends if you have any like I don't and for those of you who aren't yet hip to how the world works they're also giving you a physical titanium card now along with all of this Apple is saying that with Apple card there are no late fees no increased interest rates for late payments no fees

Just none now listen I think this is great and this was actually the most popular announcement today like according to Twitter and stuff and the Internet as a whole this was what was trending the most people are most interested in apple cart and I can't I can't blame them I'll apply I'll get denied because I'm a youtuber and I don't have a real job ok and then we got Apple RK this is of course the gaming streaming sir that we were hoping for and I used the term we lightly now when I remind you this is not similar to cloud gaming

Services so this is not like Google stadia that was announced last week this is a subscription to games that are available through the App Store not traditional titles that you could like play on PlayStation the Xbox or whatever other things are now currently we don't have a price for this we weren't given a price for actually we weren't given a price for anything else after that first thing the what was the first thing the Apple News thing Apple says that Apple arcade will include access to more than a hundred games of course these are exclusive to iOS but I mean that's to be

Expected however if you want you can also play those games on your iPhone iPad Apple TV and your Mac and can even be available for offline play ok I don't care and you got Apple TV channels which sounds a lot like I think Amazon did it was like I think was called prime channels so these are third-party channels in a first-party app effectively so channels like HBO PBS CBS that sort of thing this is just a place where you can subscribe to all your favorite channels in one place and this is another thing we got no idea what the pricing is don't worry I got you back

According to a reports from The Wall Street Journal now this report came out before the actual event happened those channels could potentially cost $9.99 each now granted this price is smaller than some of the prices that you would pay if you actually went to the service itself and you opted in for that current price that they offer like HBO is like 14 15 dollars a month this would be $9.99 a month so cheaper than HBO so cool for Apple to negotiate that but still you subscribe to your favorite channels select your favorite channels and they could potentially be $9.99 each

Again this is from a report from The Wall Street Journal not from Apple now along with this to give people channels the Apple TV app is actually going to be available on multiple devices now it'll come to Mac in the fall and will be available through smart televisions Roku and Amazon fire TV in the spring I swear to god Steve Jobs probably heard that and died again hey then we got Apple TV plus if you didn't guess it's the plus back it and other than that we got very limited details here they spent so long just putting famous people on stage granted

It's Apple and they made things look very pretty and really emotional and played with your little heartstrings like we have Steven Spielberg Fratton Khal Drogo hey it's John from the future I was editing this and I just realized how much that sounds like I said Steven Spielberg Khal Drogo that's not what happens feat Steven Spielberg did not get on stage and flat Khal Drogo what I meant to say was Steven Spielberg was there , also fine Khal Drogo was there okay Big Bird and Michael Scott like for example Oprah was there because she's gonna have two documentaries on

This Apple TV Plus thing I do find it hilarious that Steven Spielberg was here though cuz Steven has been known to talk some major about Netflix saying things like movies that are just on a TV aren't real movies and shouldn't be considered the same kind of art even said Netflix movies shouldn't win Oscars funny how he changed his mind when Tim Cook offered him money coming out of his so yes this is Apple's original content stuff that we knew was coming but we didn't get any real great look at it we didn't get any trailers for the individual shows we got frakkin nothing

We didn't get a price either so all in all this was an event filled with services service services services service our service and we have no idea when most of them even become a thing they're not even a thing yet we have Apple News Plus that you can get today because iOS 12.2 I think that's yeah iOS 12.2 came out today so Apple news plus you can get but the rest no clue maybe the rest are just over in the corner chilling with air power listen like I said this is a necessary change this is a good thing for Apple

And you know what this is gonna work Apple knows what they're doing people are gonna buy the out of every single one of these services they're about to make so much money I just feel like nothing was really thought out here if this like Tim Cook just got really freakin high and was like let's just put on a really pretty event and invite a bunch of famous people will have Steven Spielberg say some really deep will get big bird will get Michael Scott on stage – it'll be great and listen we're gonna charge so much money and then Johnny Ives like what team what

Are we offering and Tim's like who cares but it doesn't matter how I feel literally all of these services are gonna do great this is exactly what Apple shareholders are looking for this is exactly the pivot that Apple needs to make more money I've been saying this time and time again stop trying to sell new iPhones and start selling services to people that already have the iPhone the only thing that I think could have made this event better is if at the end they announced a subscription service that includes all of these services that Apple has to offer instead of paying

Individually for each and every service that Apple offers just give us one subscription service apple wine one monthly price for all of this stuff and and call it everything Apple Pro get it
