Apple iPad Forum
Here at Droidforums (and several other sites) we have had a wide range of possible responses to forum posts for some time. Nowadays, you can go well beyond just a "like" or "dislike" functionality, and do it very easily across the web. That's what makes it all the more puzzling that it has taken Facebook so long to implement something beyond a single "Like" button.
It sounds like Zuckerberg and Co. have finally listened to Facebook consumers' complaints about this this issue and are working on a solution. Supposedly Facebook is testing out something called "Reactions," and it will basically be a "like/dislike" series of buttons which will give folks a wide range of emotions to choose from when "grading" a post. Here's a quote with more of the details,
The change is just another way to...
Apple has announced yesterday a new Beats Pill+ Bluetooth wireless speaker with a simplistic design, stereo active 2-way crossover system and 12-hour battery life. The speaker will be available for $229.95 in black or white through the Apple Online Store and authorized Beats retailers beginning next month.
What makes this new speaker special is the fact that it is the first new product under Apple. It also comes with a companion app that will enable users to control the speaker and the music from two Bluetooth sources and sync two Beats Pill+ speakers together for either simultaneous or dedicated right and left playback. Beats President Luke Wood said the following:
"When you obsess about sound the way that we do at Beats, portable Bluetooth speakers can be very tricky," said We...

YouTube has finally released the redesigned version of its iOS app, after months of testing and tweaking. The new version takes cues from the Material Design-inspired Android counterpart and also comes with in-app video editing tools to make videos. Here's how the official changelog sounds like:

The new app for iOS users is now divided into three sections: Home, Subscriptions and Account. Home, like the YouTube web homepage, delivers suggestions and features videos from YouTube accounts that a user may have viewed...
The Telegraph writes that Apple CEO Tim Cook has written a heartfelt email to Apple employees on the fourth anniversary of the death of Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs.
Possibly with the recent controversy about the new film that paints Jobs in a less-than-flattering light in mind, Cook asked Apple staff to “ask what he was really like.”
Referring to Jobs as a “dear friend,” Cook went on to say, “Steve was a brilliant person, and his priorities were very simple. He loved his family above all, he loved Apple, and he loved the people with whom he worked so closely and achieved so much.”
Speaking of Jobs's legacy, Cook said, “I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and...
Apple Retains the Number one Spot in Interbrand's Annual Ranking of the World's Most Valuable BrandsApple has maintained its number one spot in Interbrand's annual ranking of the world's most valuable brands, according to the latest report from the company. Apple has been number one since 2013 when it knocked Coca-Cola out of the top spot.
Apple is followed in the top 10 list by Google, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, IBM, Toyota, Samsung, General Electric, McDonalds and Amazon.
Compared with 2014, Apple has grown in brand value a total of 43 percent, earning it one of Interbrand's "Top Riser" designations. The Cupertino-based company increased from $118.9 billion last year to $170.3 billion in this year's survey, up a total of about $51.4 billion in brand valuation from 2014 to 2015. Amazon and Facebook, which saw increased growth in 2015, also earned a "Top Riser" spot.

For folks who want the easiest way to get the new Apple Watch, October 18th is your date, and Target will be your target. Apple has teamed up with the mega retailer and will begin selling the Apple Watch in Target stores on October 18th.
Target plans to stock 20 different models. The prices will range from $349 for the 38mm Watch Sport, up to $599 for a stainless steel 42mm Watch model.
Hmmm... Apple seems to have marketed the Apple Watch as a high end watch replacement. Do you think this will hurt Apple's brand cachet at all in this arena?

Perhaps Amazon is trying to fortify their wall of content against competitors Apple and Google. Amazon supposedly sent out a memo to all of their merchants indicating they will ban the sales of the Apple TV and the Google Chromecast effective October 29th. New listings for any version of these devices will no longer be permitted on Amazon.
For some reason, Amazon is fine with Roku, Xbox and PlayStation. Of course, they will continue to sell and push their own Fire TV as well. Amazon's "justification" for this action is that it wants to sell living room devices which are fully compatible and optimized for Amazon Prime Video. Amazon said in the email, "Over the last three years, Prime Video has become an important part of Prime. It’s important that the streaming media players we sell...
