The only watches I have owned since I got out of grade school have been a Casio Data Bank, of which I had several as they weren't the most durable product ever and the tabs which hold the band on would crack. I used it for years to keep my schedule while working in retail. And for a while I had a watch that synced with the atomic clock in DC - which actually came in very handy one night when the store manager questioned why I was closing the store when I was despite his...
 Actually I suspect that the problem is that the sentencing is based more on how conclusive the evidence is rather than on how horrible the crime. Or to say that another way - there can be no doubt in the courtroom when I point to the bag of weed and say that the defendant had that bag of weed in their front pocket at the time of the stop - compared to - the alleged victim claims that such and such an act occurred on the evening of the 12th last October.  Add to that the...
Maybe the UFO building makes it easier - as soon as Johnny perfects the anti-gravity engine to lift the whole thing up and relocate it.  
What? the article said that Android phone vendors maintained dominance - not Apple.  Apple's share of 42.6% at higher margins would seem to be a more dominant position - rivaled only by an amalgamation of products from numerous vendors which all happen to share some amount of codebase with each other.  Which - similar to the Mac vs PC numbers for years - is a snapshot of what is being sold - not a measure of what is being used. How many of those new Android phones were to...
 Be careful that you don't over exaggerate. 
 Smaller and fewer components typically run cooler - even if the delivered capability is greater. Without fans I would have to think the engineers determined that passive airflow would be sufficient to keep it within normal operating parameters. For this generation of chips etc this is likely limiting the clock speed. In other words - if they did include active cooling then they could likely run it at 10% or 20% etc faster and still remain within environmental parameters....
More like - Apple has more money than me and they did something I don't like - time to sue. 
I'm kinda disappointed that the first comment wasn't simply...     DOOOOOOMED!
I wasn't meaning to suggest that the income was coming directly from money paid by the registered users. Could certainly be anything from advertisers to other selling of your data or linking to other products or services from which they receive some sort of payment. 
With 80 million registered users they only need to get each user to spend $6 on average to more than make back the $475 million invested.  Most of these stories I read don't make much sense to me because I have no idea where they make their money.  On the other hand - even if you only made $0.01 per day per user times 80 million users over the course of a year that is nearly $300 million/year.
