I buy many things that are completely unnecessary and I can change my mind from day to day.
I don't understand how people's emotional connection to an Apple product can have such a detrimental affect on their reading comprehension. I didn't say I would never buy it. I said it is unnecessary for me. As a matter of fact I did buy one, I just canceled it later. Some people are so defensive they perceive every comment that is not raving admiration of the product as completely negative trolling. I'm always willing to reevaluate my opinion especially if the product...
I did not say it's a useless product. I said there are different use cases. I clearly understand some people find it extremely useful especially those who use the health monitoring workout features. It is not something that I need but that is just me. I thought I made that clear.
You said they can't change the look, I said I thought it was still ugly, and concluded that it should be less bulky. To me the remarks directly responded to your comment. Perhaps I got a bit off topic on why I am not excited about the Watch but if it looked better and was less bulky I might change my mind.
Wow, it looks like I struck a nerve. Such an extreme reaction to a rather benign comment.
I probably shouldn't comment because I still don't see myself wearing any watch, but I still find Watch unattractive, and yes I went to the store and tried it on. I did order a Sport on day one just because it was new Apple tech, but I ended up canceling my order after reconsideration that I just don't like wearing watches. I certainly don't feel inconvenienced with just an iPhone 6 in my pocket. I don't want to be distracted while driving anyway and in just about any...
Agreed. I don't use Match or iCloud or Music and the update still messed up my library. Nothing too awful but my library is small. I lost some cover art and now have some duplicate songs. Some cover art was switched to the wrong art. I had previously changed the art on some older albums to reflect the correct original art not the rerelease art that Apple provided. Now all that art has been reverted to the latest rerelease art or is simply missing getting rid of the art...
It really depends on the type of work you do. For example the ultimate cloud-based workflow might be something that needs to be maintained in realtime such as worldwide database records or relies on remote collaboration. No amount of local storage is going to help you if your cloud goes down. But, the best way to protect your data is to backup often and have multiple backups in various physical locations. Also important is logical and detailed, dated file naming...
Apple page show everything is up now:
People say that Apple is worse than other cloud providers but all the major providers have about the same availability statistics. We just tend to hear more about Apple's downtime around here. Google consistently ranks a little higher but Amazon and Microsoft usually a bit worse, but not huge differences.   There are a number of different categories to consider such as Compute, Storage, DNS, CDN, and PaaS. Each type of platform affects different services. Because Apple's...
