Analyst expects $100 price increase for iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max

The analyst is expecting the base model iPhone 15 price to remain unchanged, but sees $100 price bumps for both the 6.1-inch Pro and 6.7-inch Pro Max. This would be the first time Apple has increased pro iPhone prices since the iPhone X debuted at $999 in 2017.

The last time this happened, nobody even noticed. Customers finance new phones through their carriers, through Apple directly, or have enough disposable income to buy it outright and, at that point, don’t care about $100.

This Trial May Mean Elon Musk Is in Big Trouble

His claim that he’s backing out of the deal because Twitter misled him about the number of bots on the website is weak, they say, meaning he’ll likely be forced to go through with the acquisition even after a dire economic downturn has lost him billions since he first floated the deal.

This is sort of the ultimate example of “you broke it, you bought it”.

Artesian Builds may have crashed and burned but its former staff are trying to create a better PC outfit

I’d like to think it’ll find some success. Not only because they appear a good bunch of people, but that they seem to hold the right attitude, one which has been forged from a shared experience of a very bad time.

Seconding this, I hope it works out for them. 

I don’t think good people, ones that clearly love what they do, should suffer forever because of the actions of the dipshit CEO at their previous employer.

Besides, who doesn’t love a good redemption story?

Tesla to demo Steam integration next month

One of the features is the integration of certain videogames on the car’s internal screens, which was shown off by an account dedicated to, well, showing off Teslas. Musk was on it immediately, and unexpectedly revealed that the cars will soon boast Steam integration.

I’ve said this before but adding functionality like this seems incredibly dangerous. I understand the intention is to entertain passengers during a drive, or give the driver something to do while the vehicle charges, but based on what we’ve seen others do with these things, some people will definitely try to play while driving, despite whatever limitations Tesla might try to put in place. 

Updates like these, that add games to the infotainment system, combined with Tesla’s half-baked “Autopilot” or “Full Self-Driving” feature are a recipe for disaster for not only the people in the Tesla itself, but those around them.

Musk expected to take “drastic action” to break Twitter deal, report says

Elon Musk is expected to take “drastic action” to get out of his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter, The Washington Post wrote yesterday in an article citing “three people familiar with the matter.”

You mean to tell me that the shitlord who trolled the entire world by pledging he’d end world hunger is abandoning a harshly thrown together Twitter takeover plot to avoid SEC scrutiny and regulatory fines?

Get the fuck outta here.

Fox and friends confront billion-dollar US lawsuits over election fraud claims

There seemed to be little consequence for peddling the most outrageous ideas on primetime. But now, unfortunately for Fox News, One America News Network (OAN), and Newsmax, it turns out that this brave, new world wasn’t free from legal jurisdiction – with the three networks now facing billion-dollar lawsuits as a result of their baseless accusations.

Bet the MyPillow guy is pissing his fucking pants right now.

NFTs sale volume falls 92 percent since January’s high

Compared to the NFT mania in January of this year, where the speculative assets amassed a total of $12.6 billion USD (roughly $16.2 billion CAD) in sale volume, the month of June saw a 92 percent decrease in volume, coming in at just $1 billion USD (roughly $1.28 billion CAD) sale volume.

Hell yeah again. 🔥
