 there's this Google's service is only free for those uploading video under 1080p and photos under 16 megapixels. Upload anything larger — say, a great DSLR shot — and if you're on the free plan, it's automatically compressed
I can't be the only one waiting for carplay before I buy my next car. I've driven cars with some of the other alternatives and they are brain dead. I listen to a streaming app in the car and it switches to music if I turn my radio up. I haven't even tried car play and I know it won't do something as stupid as that.
 what is wrong with a developer wanting to be able to work on code when they have their iPad, but not their computer, with them? Anything from an iOS developer working on the app they are building to a web developer fixing an issue on their web site.  Then there is the larger issue of people who only have iPads.  There is something inherently wrong with a computer that can't be directly programmed.  We should be opening programming to more people, not less. When the...
 My own personal use of the iPad has dropped dramatically since I got the iPhone 6 plus.  I suspect I'm not alone.  Apple needs to give people a compelling reason to upgrade.  They did it with the iPhone 6 plush which doesn't just have a bigger screen, they put in work to get extra functionality out of the larger screen.  Apps like Mail and Messages have additional functionality that takes advantage of the larger space, the home screen rotates, etc. This is Apple's chance...
 I think you are talking about a person multitasking, not a computer multitasking.  There are many situations where not having multiple windows open on my mac would kill my productivity.  Having multiple windows open on the screen at once, either within the same app or multiple apps provides far greater productivity than having to switch between them to accomplish the same task. iPad sales have been dropping, Apple needs to find a way to make it more powerful.  By powerful...
no, they aren't the same sized bezels on both devices and it's not even close.  Draw 2 horizontal lines that go across the top and bottom of the right display and you'll see it's really not even close to the same size bezel. The apple watch has a screen where the width is 85% of the height.  I already showed you the math, which is basic geometry, that proves that if the height of the display is the same, the rectangular display gives more image area than a round display....
 The image height on the right is smaller than the image height on the left. That's a function of the amount of unused space around the display, not the shape of the display.  And the usable rectangular space, you know the shape you would use to display most UI aside from an analog watch display is still greater on the watch on the right.
^ I'm not sure what you're trying to show me with those.  The first picture, the round watch isn't as tall as the rectangular watch while the rectangular watch has a larger area of display.   What I said earlier is simple geometry.   The area of a circle is πr^2 The area of a rectangle is h*w   For the apple watch, width is hight * 0.85.   A round watch of height 2 has an area of 3.14 units squared A rectangular watch of height 2 has an area of 3.28 units...
if/when numbers are released, it's going to be interesting to see how analysts spin the numbers.  The entire smart watch market was around 4 million units sold in all of 2014 (this includes sport bands like fitbit).  The market leader, Samsung, sold 1.2 million.  I suspect sometime on launch weekend Apple will become the installed base leader and that analysts will compare the sales to smart phones instead of to smart watches.
