Technology Matters-Lots of Apples

    Apple CEO Tim Cook reving up the Apple crowd.  He says Amazon video will soon be available on Apple TV.  There's an update coming to the Apple Watch.  Also expected...a new larger iPad Pro.

    Apple is jumping into the smart home speaker market with it's "HomePod.

    I think this is inspired by existing smart speakers like Amazon Echo and Google Home.

    HomePod is a seven-inch tall speaker for playing music, checking the news and controlling other connected devices in your home.  

    You wake it up by saying "hey, Siri."

    HomePod goes on sale in December...with a price tag of 349-dollars.

    Apple may have found a way to end the dangerous practice of texting while driving.

    Apple will soon introduce a new iPhone feature called "Do Not Disturb While Driving."

    It works when the iPhone is connected to a car via cable or Bluetooth.  The phone will withhold any notifications for texts and other updates.  It also blocks texts when the car is moving.

    If you text someone you'll get a message saying that person is driving and can't respond at the moment.

    The iPhone screen will be locked to prevent drivers from using many of the device's apps.

    Passengers can disable the feature, which will be part of Apple's iOS 11 operating software.

    We've had enough Apples, so lets end with 93-year-old Sylvia from Australia.

    She asked the Internet to pick her outfit for her upcoming wedding.

    Sylvia is marrying her longtime friend Frank next month.
