Apple’s New Challenge: A Wave Of Key Executives Leaving The Company, by Mark Gurman, Bloomberg

Most of the recent departures were of Apple veterans, people who have been at the company 15-plus years. But in the case of its design and services vice presidents, among others, Apple lost executives in the prime of their careers who could have, one day, potentially reached the senior vice president level.

Moreover, I’ve been warned that this flurry of exits may just be the beginning. There are quite a few vice presidents at Apple who have been there for decades and could retire in the next few years.

In a world where millions of people carry a 1990s-grade supercomputer in their pockets, it's fun to revisit tech from a time when a 1 megahertz machine on a desktop represented a significant leap forward.

Something was wrong with the latest episode of Liason over at Apple TV+. Well, the actual show is still good. (So far.) But the subtitles on my version of the TV app is messed up. the app simply refused to always show me English subtitles / captions at all times.

I forgot which is which, but no matter if I chose English or English CC as subtitles, I will either only get English subtitles when the dialog is in French and no subtitles when the dialog is in English, or I get English subtitles when the dialog is in English and French subtitles when the dialog is in French.

(No, I don't know French.)

In the end, out of frustration, I chose Simplified Chinese (which I understand) as subtitles.


Also, what's up with Apple app designers who think we are all perfect human beings that fit into perfect use cases? The TV app on iPad is so bad when watching TV+ shows (at least). One wrong touch on the screen, and the show either forwards or rewinds goodness know how many minutes.


Thanks for reading.
