Wait until they turn round a corner (NSFW):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k16tuE31UbA
Companies that are used to combustion engines will have to engineer things an entirely different way so the people involved will be thinking of completely different engineering problems. Electric cars don't need to hold flammable liquid, they don't need to aspirate the engine or cool a combustion reaction, the engine is much lighter and the weight is in the battery rather than the motor. A combustion car engine is ~200kg vs 30kg electric. An EV battery is about 500kg but...
It's nice she doesn't hold a grudge against Apple for the iCloud thing. Looks like she's dating this guy, maybe they could model the different styles together: She looks amazing in everything, they could be the entire Watch campaign: She's not one of those supermodels that have a weird look about them like Cara Delvigne: Sort those eyebrows out lady. It's the right way to go mixing it with fashion. It helps show up their closest competitor - the Moto 360 shown...
The Apple one should end up being more polished. I'm still not sure on the jewellery angle, some styles are more flattering than others:I've never looked at images of it and not thought of it as a digital watch. The gold one is nice but how many people are really going to pay over $1000 for one? I read the phrase 'mass-market luxury' to describe it and those terms just seem a bit mutually exclusive.Given the choice between a low-end Apple Watch and a standard gold (plated)...
I wonder what he tells GM shareholders about the long-term prospect of being in a low-margin, heavy-manufacturing business.They take raw aluminium and turn it into computers, they have some idea what they're getting into. They might even try to make them safer:http://www.cultofmac.com/254380/jony-ives-cars/"The Aston Martin DB9 is a supercar known for its association with James Bond. Jony had the car delivered to New York and drove it cross-country with his dad, Mike. It...
Public areas are always going to be sensitive about who should be doing what. The same goes for people playing sports games or walking animals on the beach leaving their mess behind and people stepping in it in their bare feet. Here someone was getting annoying by a drone operator flying over a nude beach:It's like with Google Glass, there are areas where people don't want cameras being pointed at them regardless of the intent behind it. There are voyeurs around who go to...
That reply was about the decision behind making a watch, I was just contrasting his main skills with the design team, engineering team etc.Why would you check your pulse in the morning? It's not something where the iPhone lags behind other phones. The iPhone excelled beyond other phones at the time and it took over 2 years for them to catch up. Other tablets still haven't really caught up to the iPad because of a lack of optimized apps. The Watch doesn't seem like it will...
Are you talking about current enemies or past enemies? Germany was an enemy at some point as was China, Korea, Vietnam. Generations move on and embargos are lifted because they don't have to suffer for what their ancestors did.
Tim Cook is an operations guy, that doesn't make him a puppet, his job is to make sure the artists ship. Tim's excitement over the watch seems to me to come more from the idea that they can still pull off the same operation of delivering a new worldwide product, which is worth being happy about. I think he does like his watch because he's a fitness guy and has worn sports watches:(unlike the slacker next to him) but I don't think his excitement is primarily about the watch...
Yep although I wouldn't say the Minority Report setup is the way to go. The qwerty keyboard has been given a level of importance when it comes to language input but it has a limited design:http://www.businessinsider.com/chinese-keyboards-2011-9?op=1http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-keyboard-2011-7People have complained about the software keyboard in iOS but that's mainly the tactile part. From a functionality point of view, software inputs are much more flexible. We...
