Show us those publications that predicted that. As I said last post, maybe one early on made that prediction. I'll even give you two. But a majority? Sorry, but that's simply not true. I follow this very closely, and I don't remember that at all. I do remember a number of questions early on as to who got the order, and then how much Samsung ended up with. And of course, Samsung continued to manufacture all of Apple's other chips, which they will be doing again this year,...
I'd like you to find that "majority" of publications that said that Samsung had the majority of the A8 production. I don't remember any of that. Maybe one made an early guess.
It doesn't matter whether the tech forums were wrong or not, it was a symptom of the times. There were arguments about a lot of phones back then as to whether they were smart or not.And the point I was making to you, and this is the last post to you here that I'll do, is that a lot of these phones have no way to connect to any App Store. I didn't say Google Play specifically, did I? No, I didn't.Let's make one thing clear here, you, as always are the one arguing. I made a...
No, it's entirely different. First of all it's enclosed at the ends. It's in the middle that the latch clicks it in. Just look at the pics that were posted.Guys, please, go to Apple's site, and check this out before coming here and speculating on something that's already known. The pictures alone will show a lot of this.
Apple states that inside the end of the band, where it slides into the watch, there is metal. Likely that's SS on all bands. I do believe the bands are exactly the same for the Watch, and Sport I think that the nub that holds the band closed is SS on both models. It's a small part. For the Edition, yes, Apple says it's 18k gold.
It's likely that you won't be able to do that. The attachment mechanism is Apple's, and is likely patented. And band manufacturer that want to make bands would have to do so through Apple, and so far, Apple hasn't said anything about third party bands.If Apple does decide to license out that attachment design, they would require a quality level from the manufacturer, and so the band wouldn't be cheap. But there's no evidence so far that Apple is thinking on allowing this.
I didn't say that Nokia described them that way. But the tech forums were always having arguments about it. They weren't smartphones, they were featurephones. But some of the better models had smartphone like functionality.ASAP? Do you mean AOSP? I don't have model numbers. But you can read about the many models in China, India and some other places that have the minimum of functionality, and have no access to an App Store, or other services that we consider part of the...
If you look at a high quality watch bracelet out of SS, you will see that it can easily cost well over $500. These are complex devices themselves, with a lot of hand assembly and finishing.As far as the case itself goes, people will believe that a 316L material is much more valuable than one out of anodized aluminum. It will look much more refined, and it will be heavier. When people pick something up, the heavier one always seems worth more. Forging SS is a much more...
If Apple doesn't make bands available, I think it would be a mistake. Apple may not feel that way, but I don't know how they've arrived at their end point. Did they consult people in the fashion and watch industries? They hired a few very high level people from there, and I imaging that Ahrens also knows something about watches and fashion.I would buy a stainless model. Not this year, most likely, but likely next year. Depending on the pricing, I might buy it with a...
the numbers for the watch industry show the average price for a Swiss watch to be $739 last year. So Apple could price it that way. There were over 29 million Swiss watches sold last year, so that's a large enough group to be selling to. If Apple sold it for somewhat less, say $600, as a number I've been seeing written about, then it would be in the lower side of the average. That would be tempting.]
