Lol Im a serious runner and run with my iPhone every day.  What utter bs.  I put the iPhone in an arm holster and run with it to track gps, and the watch does not need your phone to track  you.  If you have been watching christy turlington burns on apples web sight you would know that.  She stated that after a few runs with the phone and watch together that you don't need the phone anymore and actually says that the watch is very accurate. No personal attack here but you...
You nailed the troll line perfectly.  In other words no matter how it does they will claim failure.  How many times have we heard this same crap.  Every time Apple launches a new product.  Every time.
Don't forget too that the 5s had the A7 as well the first 64 bit mobile processor and also the first 64 mobile iOS.  Those were major updates as well.
The 6 Plus actually renders graphics internally at an even higher 2.7M pixel resolution, then scales the results down to the physical resolution of its screen (its internal 2208x1242 rendering resolution is scaled down to fit its 1920x1080 display).  So the 6 Plus is always rendering at 2208x1242 and scaling down its graphics to fit the screen it is using at 1920x1080.
You do realize that displaymate that did the reviews on those displays also said that the iPhone 6 is the best LCD display in a smart phone on the market and also that the samsung S5 and S6 are the best OLED displays too.   He did not say that OLED "trounces"  the iPhone display. But that it has become better in some areas than the iPhone display not so good in other areas.I would expect that samsung being one of the biggest OLED manufacturers in the world would have the...
If you read her blog she said exactly that:So the Watch learns in conjuntion with your iPhone and then works well alone.
So this whole review is based on geek bench scores on a lenovo yoga 3.  The reviewer even says that the macbook has not been released yet but bases his review on a competitors notebook running windows 8.   Can we base reviews on shipping products?  By the way anyone expecting to run photoshop or pro software on this kind of machine is always going to be disappointed, you run pro software on a pro machine like the Macbook Pro.  Note books are meant to be small and light...
You are dead on.  As I said in my other post, I am a runner and the watch by itself will track your distance through the accelerometer just like the nike+ sensor did for your shoe.  All without your iPhone.
 Did you watch the keynote?  Obviously not.  You can run with the apple watch without the phone and it tracks your time, distance moved, pace, heart rate and many other functions completely without your phone.  The phone is only needed for gps and nfc and phone calls.  When back in range with your phone it reports that data to the health app on the phone.  Please stop spreading FUD and misinformation.Im a runner and very excited about the watch and will buy one when it...
Apple has made it easier to manage apps with family sharing, it works great.  All of the apps my kids want to buy on there devices have to be approved by me or my wife.  It works very well.  I think the same kind of thing would work very well for school districts too, having the admin approve all app purchases or installs.  I think this sounds just like an extension of that functionality that is already in iOS 8. From Apples website:
