Look, I'm both an atheist and a very scientific minded person.  So I don't believe that porn is immoral or against rules created by a fictitious entity.  I also fully understand that human beings are part of the animal kingdom, and as such, have sexual urges designed to help keep our species going.  So there is nothing unnatural or evil about wanting to see other human beings involved in sexual acts: it's in our very nature.  Anyone who argues against porn along those...
wow, I guess I'm not surprised that privileged men on the internet don't understand (or choose to ignore) the fact that a lot of porn is used to fund organized crime.  And that in many countries women/men on the streets with no options and no laws/no motivation to protect them are rounded up by street gangs and used in porn.  Even in first world countries, there's plenty of porn that's created in very questionable/exploitative circumstances.   That's where the...
My use of convergence is used in the sense that any device can do the things any other device can (e.g. a laptop has all the capabilities of a cell phone).  Handoff is the start of this. And I have no doubt that, in time, the watch will be able to do simple tasks like make a call or send a small message on it's own (which is where your definition of convergence fits).  However, for most people, it's just too small to be the only device they carry in most situations.  Hence...
 Maybe because the phone they were carrying wasn't as big before?  Maybe because, with device convergence, it might be possible to choose to carry only a phone or iPad or a laptop with you, and as long as you're wearing the watch, you can still do everything no matter what device you're carrying with it (obviously not now, but in the not-so-distant future).  Just because most people can't see the forest from the trees doesn't mean it isn't there.
 But I thought the original iPhone could only make calls? Maybe people are also tired of fumbling around for their cell phone just to do simple things?  Especially as phones are becoming larger and more unwieldy to accommodate those who watch everything on their phone, or need to interact with complex websites regularly.
 But they could already make calls on their existing cell phones.  So why would they spend $600 (at the time) on a new one if it only did the same thing?  Because it did the basics of a phone much better, and had the potential to do so much more for them. It's the same thing with the Apple Watch.  Sure, there are plenty of watches that tell the time well, but the Apple Watch has the potential to do a lot more for people.  The same way that the 1st gen iPhone is relatively...
 Probably not for most given that I work in technology and analyze the details of anything I buy. Most people probably didn't even see/understand these things when they were buying poorly designed phones, and only came to realize how beneficial they were once they experienced them on the iPhone.  But once they did, they couldn't go back again. But regardless, saying the original iPhone was just a phone is reactionary nonsense.  We've come a long way since then, but it was...
 So having to pop SD cards in and out of things and increasing the potential for data loss due to dropping/wear and tear/losing your SD card is preferred over having a high-speed wireless transfer system that has none of those problems?  I was talking about sub-$100 point and shoot cameras, or cell phone cameras, which is what most non-professionals are using for their pictures.
 Given that no one really knows what's happening, it's all just reactionary speculation based on auto-generated order information right now. Consider this: I was one of the very first people to preorder the iPhone 5 (about one minute after the online store opened).  After a few hours, shipping times for preorders slipped and everyone was complaining.  And yet, on the day it was became available in the retail store, many people were able to get ahold of it well before it...
As compared to what?  The ASCII web browsing capabilities of other smart phones at the time? Here's a list of the reasons why I bought the 1st gen iPhone at a premium off eBay and hacked it to work in Canada: - Text messaging & email were far better than other phones (no need to press number keys till your fingers bleed)- Music playing and management was miles ahead of anyone else- You could actually use it with a Mac.  Most smart phone makers only had Windows versions of...
