The point of Apple Music was to provide a curated service. Their intent was to bring in artists and have them build playlists and promote other new artists and increase the knowledge of music that is out there. This is where we are at now with all media - there is so much media of all forms out there that people are overwhelmed with choices, so the next step in media is to figure out how to guide people to better content than just what everyone else listens to.   The...
FM Radio was not a free service ... you paid for it by listening to advertisements.
Yep, and this article too, https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130203/23380821872/monster-cable-finds-itself-other-side-trademark-case-still-losing.shtml Here is the funniest thing ... the huckster Noel Lee got totally taken advantage of by Jimmy Iovine and signed a really crappy contract. Sad part to me is that Beats original partner, SLS, probably would have built good headphones, rather than the overpriced crap that Monster came up...
I have one of the first-gen Pebble Watches. Cool watch, very functional, battery life a few days (but less than a week). I still charged it every night.  I wish my Apple Watch had longer battery life, but the truth is that my iPhone 6+ has been running out in less than a day, while my Apple Watch has not shut down yet (actually, traveling on a flight to China, I did put it into low power mode.) The functionality is so much better than the Pebble, I will put up with...
From what I have seen, there are plenty of people that are immersed in conversations while driving that are talking for their whole car ride - these people are far more distracted than most of the situations discussed here, and yet not only are you allowed to talk on a hands free device, you are actually allowed to have passengers to talk to when driving! So tell me, how many people have accidents from highway hypnosis or zombie-Ing while driving - all symptoms that...
Well, I am quite sure that parents in Title 1 schools would think nothing of paying $40/child/month for unlimited LTE ...The only place those kids are going to get unlimited internet access is at school ...
Face it, the reasons that ChromeBooks are popular for school districts is because a) they are so cheap they are throwaway devices and b) they are so limited that they are easily administrated by school district IT people who are typically trained in large infra-structure with zero personalization. So what we are telling the kids is that the tools they are being given are designed to drain their personality and are great because they can be thrown away or lost with little...
I don't get this post ... ChromeBooks work great offline, that is why mine is LTE-enabled for constant internet connection and why I pay for network access when on a plane ... So how exactly do you know about the offline capabilities when it appears you admit you use the device as a constantly connected device? And how are kids going to pay for constant LTE and transport-based wifi to get your same functionality?
Maybe it's me (and I am definitely not one of the $10,000 Apple watch owners), but $60 for a stand with a hole in it seems a bit overpriced.
So where do watches fit in these reports?
