    Has anyone used an epub/ebook, audio-reader app on iOS? Recommendations?

    I have a ton of eBook's, and don't want to pay for their AudioBook versions.

    Apple has a stock books app that supports epub I think.

    Computer voice reading an e-book would be gross. People pay for audiobooks?

    Haven't seen 15-20% itunes GC for a long time now...... I usually buy hundreds at a time since it's also good for subscriptions like icloud, disney+ and not just app purchases. Need to know when they have big discounts again. Hopefully they will still offer that much discount.
    They are on for 14-16% off right now at Costco til the 28th. Good timing for me as i need to reload for my yearly D+ subscription next month (at the new stupid higher price )


    EDIT: also, just got billed for my second month of AppleCare+ and again it came off my "iTunes Credit". I don't have "Apple Store Credit" on my account at all. So it wasn't just the first month, it seems to work for every month. Nice little loophole to save a bit of money.

    ^^^I'm going to top up for my apple one. It gave me weird trials again so my subscriptions really make no sense. It like made me pay for arcade and then wouldn't start for a month but included icloud and music.

    Also some m1 MBAs are avialable in the refurb store now, save a couple hundred it seems like

    Looks like M1 Mac's are using a excessive Read/Write on the SSD.
    Not sure whether this is related to the M1 chip or it is bug in the OS.

    They can probably make it better with an update but it might affect performance. Maybe they were hoping people didn't notice haha - they solder the SSD in too so Apple wins either way when the customer decides to repair or replace.

    I was reading about this yesterday but information on why it happens seems to be scarce.
