You know, I have a husky. She would have had both of those fluoroelastomer bands chewed off within 10 minutes.
Where does the dog carry the 2 companion iPhones? ;-)   EDIT: Oh, never mind, the referring article indicates the dog has it's own Fendi bag.
I agree. It doesn't make sense for a device that gets shoved in pockets and bags and is being held in your hands, subject to errant touches. Once it wakes, anything could happen, especially if it unlocks in the future. So I don't see Apple implementing this until they figure out a way to make this foolproof. However, the benefits of incorporating the wake/touch ID into the home screen and eliminating the Home button are understandable -- it frees up a lot of real estate to...
What does eliminating the Digital Crown have to do with changing the bands? If there's a round watch in Apple's future, it wouldn't be the only option, they'd sell it right along with the square watch, which bands will still work the way they do now. I'd be more inclined to believe they come up with some improvement on the existing bands that prevents the originals from working with the newer bands first.
I've never had a problem obscuring the dial when rotating the bezel on my traditional watches, so this would not be a problem on a round smartwatch. A touch sensitive bezel would be slightly more problematic because at some point in a complete 360 rotation your finger would briefly obscure the display, but not nearly in the same way scrolling on the screen would, and not really a big deal. And as some have suggested, a much larger "wheel" might allow for more fine-tuned...
If so, they will need to locate the Touch ID somewhere else. Perhaps on the back. But I'm not sure how you are going to activate the iPhone with force touch alone. The idea of a phone that gets slipped into a bag or pocket is that when you lock it, it doesn't accidentally come on without pressing a physical button. If the home button is removed in favor of just touching the screen to wake it like on the watch, it will most likely turn into a lot of unintended device wakes,...
I'm not sure how $149 is approaching $349 by any stretch of the imagination. An extra $100 to step up from the Surge to the Watch is sort of reasonable considering why someone would be considering the Surge to begin with, but an extra $200 is the difference between having groceries for the week or not for some.When the first gen Watch drops to $249 next year, then the jump from the Charge HR will make more sense. The MiBand seems like a perfectly reasonable budget...
It's the same silver finish puck that comes with the stainless steel watch.
I wonder if this is why Apple is rumored to be making iOS 9 compatible with the 4S. If true, that would keep that phone around and useable for at least one more year, meaning we might not see a new 4" phone until the 7 is released. And that makes a certain amount of sense too. Especially if Apple does upgrade the 5s with Touch ID, which seems unlikely, then they're setting the stage for 3 sizes of the iPhone 7 priced by screen size, with the two year ago model hitting the...
There are driverless bigrigs ready to be deployed on the nations highways now. It's such an immediate threat that the Teamsters are already battling it.Driverless cars will happen in the not so distant future.
