My observation about the Apple watch has nothing to do with whether it's a successful product. How can it not be successful given the number of iPhones on the planet? Even a small percentage translates into millions of units sold -- at least as many as everybody else combined last year. Whether it will have the same growth rate as other products remains to be seen, not to mention whether they will be able to instill the same kind of upgrade desire year after year.No, my...
Yup. No argument there. However the data in this article seemingly supports my anecdotal evidence. I suspect next year when the 1g Watch likely drops to $249, after the 2g model comes out, the Fitbit Surge will be a harder justification. But I expect the charge and flex will still be quite popular (and even less expensive) for those who merely are looking to track their fitness. I don't really see them competing against the Watch.
Fitbit's not going anywhere anytime soon. There's a massive fitness push in my company right now, and everyone is on a Fitbit craze. For $100, people have all they need to track fitness. Everyone I know has a Fitbit at work, and I've yet to see one Watch, or overhear anybody talking about them -- and almost all of them use an iPhone. Today in fact, everyone was getting excited about how they can receive notifications on their Fitbits while discussing the latest "fitness...
You mean like the 3GS? Granted that was 5 generations ago, but we've not yet seen an iPhone that wasn't identified as just a number and a letter(s), either. So they would be changing their whole marketing scheme to something far more complicated than they have been using, which they could very well do.
I'm with you. I have every local broadcast on my DirecTV service in LA, including stations I didn't even know existed. I believe this is true for every local TV station based on a customers registered zip code. I'd love to know more about what these streaming limitations are. I could stream all of my local stations through my Time Warner account as well, so maybe it has to do with the licenses that ABC and others have already granted to the cable and satellite operators....
I agree. Indeed, even with the 5 different color SKUs, they've already got tons of experience with the 5c, the iPods, and the iPad covers to know what colors are in greatest demand, so even that's not a surprise.
There's nothing indicating that a "5sc" would preclude a "6c", in fact this seems like a standard operating strategy now to create a new case so that the "$99" phone is not identical to the top of the line phone, and give them a three year life on the case as they move it down the chain. However, I don't believe you will ever see a "Plus c". They might even offer a 4" 6 in addition to it, or instead of it to push those wanting a 4.7" screen up to the 6s. Screen size is a...
how is this enabled on an iPad?
I agree. It would be far from water-resistant, though the connector assembly itself seem to be protected by a gasket. Any water that got behind the band lug would have the potential to corrode and short circuit the electronics. 
I bought the first flat screen Apple Studio Display. I loved that thing because it had video inputs as well as an analogue Mac display connector with a VGA adapter. The next year when they changed it to DVI, they dropped the video inputs, and never did it again. I connected a VCR to it which allowed me to watch TV through the VCR tuner, by just switching from the Mac to the video input.  So I'm all for your idea of accommodating external video input. I don't see any reason...
