This is great news, brilliant on Apple's part, and will likely show results before the Apple Watch is released next year. This will not only pave the way for widespread use, but also possibly allow for health insurance subsidization of relevant apple products (already, the iPad outperforms previous systems, which cost $6k, for facilitating communication for autistic patients). In the medical field there is a constant push for "Evidence Based Medicine." This is good for...
 Yeah, I can't imagine a scenario where Apple can directly engage in an effective way, but Apple can pull the rug out from under them by addressing the main complaints, which Apple can do simply by explaining in TV and print ads what they are all about, kind of like the first video shown at the recent Apple event, but more straightforward, more matter of fact, and less fluffy (I liked the idea of that video, but it seemed a little unnessesarily over dramatic in the...
I really wish Apple would do more to combat the army of online trolls (primarily contracted by samsung) that trash Apple with the most ridiculous bullshit over and over. I was following different trending topics on facebook on sept 9, and the comment sections were full of tired anti-apple troll-speak. The same, unoriginal stuff repeated over and over, including a bunch of "I love sammy" and "samsung's the real innovator" comments. It's really obnoxious, and it plays into...
I'm in my early 30's and have probably worn a watch for a total of 6 months in my entire life, but I can't wait to get the Apple watch, and I'm definitely not waiting for version 2. I exercise regularly enough, so I don't much care about the fitness component, but there are so many other things I can't wait to start doing with it. The functionality is amazing for a first gen product, with many features I'd actually use almost every day (subtle notifications, Apple TV...
 I finally got to see it on hulu last night and it was great. It definitely seems like Tim is a better negotiator than a conversationalist. He wasn't very engaged in some of the banter, but really switched on every time he was prodded by charlie rose. He didn't even flinch when the possibility of a camera was brought up, or when asked something to the effect of whether Apple is destined for failure without Steve Jobs. It was really refreshing for him to say that he is well...
 I think if Apple was going to do that they would've done it this year, and not kept the 5s. If I had to guess, I'd say they're going to drop the 5s and the 5c next year, and separate the iPhones into two categories, unapologetic polycarbonate and metal, each in two different sizes. Using US subsidized pricing as a starting off point: they could have the 4.7" iPhone 6s and the 5/5" iPhone 6s Plus at the usual $199 and $299, maintaining a high value and aspirational appeal,...
goddamnit!! I'm trying to stream via wifi on my apple tv and my iPhone for backup via LTE, both are inconsistent and messing up. And why is this being dubbed over in Japanese (or some other Asian language, I'm not familiar with them).   I took half a day off to watch this live! :/   Edit: this language dubbing over phil's voice is really frustrating.. thinking of going out to drown some puppies and coming back later for the edited stream.   Edit #2: 10:28 The dubbing...
 Yeah, I guess it's a bit of a stretch. I hope that at least Apple is considering negotiating with the shipping companies for a shipping service that they could incorporate with payments for online merchants, with competitive shipping rates and improved tracking for all purchases made with EasyPay (or whatever it's going to be called). That way it could be a self contained service, just click "Finalize Order" and then scan finger with touch ID, that's it, then your default...
 I've been thinking of the same thing actually. I'll take a crack at it: "Apple is all about making our lives simpler, so we can focus on the things that truly matter.* So today we're thrilled to be announcing some products that will do just that; they will have the ability to truly transform the way we live. So what can we do to simplify our lives? Well I think a good place to start is to focus on the things we carry with us every day. For some, the most important thing...
Does anyone else see a lot of potential benefit in Apple buying FedEx? If Apple is able to tie it in to an online payment system, where Apple can easily set up payments and shipping for online merchants, it could be a really interesting move. Apple would also be able to use its fleet of delivery trucks and drivers to maintain accurate maps info, and possibly create a street view type function as well. It would be an enormous acquisition, but something that might give Apple...
