Apple Announces October 30th Event

Apple October 2018 Event Images

Today Apple sent out invites to members of the press announcing an event on October 30th. The event will not be held at the Howard Gilman Opera House on the campus of the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City. The event titled “There’s more in the making” will be at 10:00 AM Eastern time on October 30th.

The event will be live streamed and can be watched at the Apple Events page.

Apple has done something a bit different with the invitations this go around. They sent out different images to different journalists. The header image above are the ones that are shown on the events page. However, some journalists got even different ones, like the one below.

Panzarino Event Invite

These are not in the rotation of images on the event page. It is good to see the variety of invites that were sent out. Look for my predictions sometime before the event.

Mac App Bundles are now available

Today Apple made developers aware that they can now create bundles for Mac Apps. Beginning with iOS 8 developers could create bundles of their iOS apps. You can bundle up to 10 iOS apps into a single bundle. Bundled Apps are now available for Mac Apps.

Mac App Bundles can also include 10 apps into a single bundle. The apps in the bundle can be either paid apps or free apps with auto-renewable subscriptions. App Bundles cannot combine both iOS and Mac Apps, they must all be apps for the same platform.

It is possible that iOS apps and macOS Apps may be bundled together in the future, but we will have to wait until Apple announces that to become a reality.

Halloween Movies: Updated 2018

Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown cover

Way back in 2014, I wrote a post about the Halloween movies that I tend to watch around this time of year. A couple years ago in 2016 I even did an update that included some additional movies. It”s now been two years beyond that and it is time for another update. As with the last few posts, the movies fall into a few different categories. These are: Parodies, Zombies, Diseases, Horror, Super Natural, Aliens, and “Other”. This is by no means a comprehensive list, nor do I end up watching all of these movies every year, but I do tend to watch a bunch of them.

In my last post there were a few “honorable mentions”. These were “Fido”, “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil”, and “Zombeavers”. As mentioned in my last post, I have seen all three of these movies, but they have not yet made into the rotation. Still none of these have made it into my standard rotation. There are a couple of movies that I have watched, which will likely not make it into regular rotation. These are “Evil Dead” and “Return of the living dead”. The first one is just not my thing. “Return of the living dead” was more entertaining than “Evil Dead”, but I am unsure about watching it again.

In my last post I also mentioned that there may be some additional ones in the future, but I had not yet watched them. These possible additions were: “Navy vs. Zombies”, “Scout”s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”, and “Warm Bodies”. I have watched only one, “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”, and it has made it the list. The new movies are denoted with a *.
