    Concerning Apple Care+ for iPhone…two thoughts in response: first, the low end cost of screen replacement based on what an Apple store would charge may not be a factor for many iOS owners because, I suspect at least, that many, if not most owners, do not live close enough to an Apple store for that to be a factor (mail in adds to the overall replacement cost of a cracked screen, for example)…second, I checked with a local, good reputation cell phone repair business where I live (Atlanta area) and they told me the cost to replace an iPhone 6 screen was much higher than $129…closer to $400!
    For those reasons alone, I have been very glad to cough up another $99 for AC+ on my iphone 6.
    Thanks for a great show this week and always,

    Hey Adam, just wanted to help out regarding to changing the default file when doing screenshots. I’ve been using TinkerTool by Marcel Bresink Software for years. There is nine different formats you can select from. Hope this helps.

    Ill be honest. Yosemite is the first OSX variant that i have actually deleted. I hate it and I hate how apple has decided that they are going to tell me how i am going to work instead of letting me decide how I want to work. You can no longer guarantee your workflow on apple products. They change it so much and then they make the old version of their apps very hard if not impossible to get.

    I have almost 15 grand invested in apple products and I’m about done with them. Sorry Apple you are losing me as a customer. Leave stuff alone.
