New story: For new high-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, Apple indeed plans return of MagSafe, the end of the Touch Bar (finally), brighter screens, minor design changes, next-gen M-series chips and more. Launch around mid-2021.

@stroughtonsmith  My experience with the AirPods Max and the Mac has been extremely subpar. If I was only using them with a Mac, I would have returned them already.

New story — Amazon is gearing up to launch its first Alexa wearable: AirPods competitors, planned to include better sound. All the details on the earbuds here:

The screen on my Galaxy Fold review unit is completely broken and unusable just two days in. Hard to know if this is widespread or not.

Samsung just showed off its new Fold during an Oscars commercial. That’s one way to announce something.

Epic's Fornite has been removed from the App Store after they implemented direct payments, circumventing Apple's 30% cut.

The AirPower wouldn’t even have made a dent on Apple’s bottom line, but cancelling an announced product, no matter how big or small, is a huge embarrassment. Can’t recall them cancelling an announced device, at least in modern era. Even the white iPhone 4 made it out alive.
