I think it's partly down to how the sensor in the Apple Watch is separated so it is lifted up off the wrist and the edges are curved:You can see the Asus watch vs Apple one here:and Asus vs Moto here:At 4:30, you can see the profiles of each. The Asus is 9.4mm so thinner than the Apple Watch but also has rounded edges that are 7.9mm. If they tapered the edge of the 360 a bit more, maybe pulled in the sensor at the base, it would look slimmer.
There's a rumor that the next one might not have that and possibly be launched at Google IO May 28th, which would explain the price cut to clear out old inventory the way resellers do for Apple products before events:http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/samsung-gear-motorola-moto-360-2-prepare-take-apple-watch-1495332There's a conflicting rumor saying it will keep the flat tire design but that it will come in multiple sizes. Topolsky is wearing a 360 here and it looks like a standard...
Rather than the 9 icons, it might just be better doing a standard scrollable list like so:Instead of having to manually mark each as not interested, it would assume that scrolling down would mean the person isn't interested in the apps shown. It can cache the last 5-10 apps to allow quickly scrolling back but otherwise, remove the apps from the list and keep them hidden. The apps upwards would always stay in the same order. The order of the apps coming in from the bottom...
An old USB stick needs an adaptor:http://www.sandisk.com/products/usb/dualdrive-type-c/USB C is the new USB. Also, for things like hard drives and cameras, it's just a different version of a cable you'd need anyway. Before, you'd take USB A to mini/micro-USB and now it's USB C to mini/micro-USB.They won't go to a single port on other laptops, just like they didn't when the Air launched with a single USB A port years ago.Plus there's wireless power and data to consider....
So that's what the edition one is for. They must be gifting them to celebrities who wouldn't likely turn down a $10k+ gift and just wearing them is direct advertising to hundreds of thousands of their social media followers. Cheap advertising too as they only cost Apple ~$2000. These are all musicians so it seems likely Iovine had something to do with this:http://www.businessinsider.com/beats-ceo-jimmy-iovine-talking-to-musicians-about-exclusive-itunes-albums-2014-12"What...
Looks like the main locations include these: http://www.mapsdata.co.uk/portfolio-items/map-world-millionaires-bilionaires/ I don't think they'll make more than 100,000 units of the Edition version to maintain exclusivity so under 2,000 units per store. Given the ordering process and for security, the stores probably won't hold more than a few at a time. If they sold the top Apple Watch to every millionaire worldwide (12 million of them), they'd make more revenue than...
I believe it's pronounced 'Android Where'. It's a competition to see if you can spot anyone actually using Android devices to backup their activation numbers. You win a watch if you can spot anyone.
People say that it's like an iPad as though that's somehow a bad thing. The iPads get the highest customer satisfaction ratings among all Apple's products - 98-100%. If you were to buy a 128GB iPad, it would be $699. Apple charges $200 to move from 128GB to 256GB on the Macs so a 256GB Air would be $899. The Macbook is $1299. The Macbook has 8GB RAM vs 2GB on the Air. If you assume RAM costs $10/GB, that's easily $100 Apple retail pricing so an equivalent Air would be...
In China, Tim Cook said 80% but AT&T says only 15%:http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052702304049904579516103768847882"AT&T Inc., which reports first-quarter results Tuesday, sold 15% of its smartphones without a subsidy in the fourth quarter."It also doesn't mean they have to be paying it upfront, they can be using a monthly payment plan separate from their carrier contract.
There would be thousands of bad ones but also dozens of nice ones and they can be curated:There's a whole load of these:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBWsYPGhkDAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NISbK89kpIEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eu-IzJTUmohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSkPZNlGaeAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FW9sTRjNTwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPt3bwur9TwWoz can even have virtual nixie tubes:or the original Apple Watch: For added effect, they can have...
