It's all about the Apple products and services
 It's that time again! Apple has announced new products and new services for Apple fans to buy. 2019 is the year that Apple fully goes into the subscription based model. Plus, the return of the iPad Mini. Many people thought this product was dead, but, Apple had other plans. Most of the new products are updated with little or no new advancements.  Time will tell if the move to a subscription on media will pay off for Apple. The music service is going strong, but, with increased competition for video, Apple's chances of success are slim. Time is the best indicator of what will stick and what will bomb.

So Much Loot, So Many Problems. Plus, Anthem Review
 Loot shooters, they are a sub-genre of shooters that emphasizes on getting loot and has some RPG elements. Their premise sounds great, but, many developers do not make them great. We have Destiny, Division, and now Anthem. They have so many problems with a little fixing. It falls into the same problems from early RGBs, they are lots of repetitive missions and the end game content is very light.  Loot shooters are not going away, but, they need to get better. Ubisoft seems to have learned from their mistakes, but, how many more of these games need to have terrible end game content? Find out the problems with loot shooters and how to fix, plus, my review for Anthem.
