My kids love messing with their grandparent's iDevices--setting Siri to an Austrailian accent, changing the nickname to something silly and the like.Once, at a family gathering I could sense the older generation was a little perturbed and I told him to set it so Siri called his grandmother "Judy" instead of "Fishface." "Siri, call me 'Judy'" he said and Siri thought it was Jimmy. He proceeded to try again and again with Siri missing the name more comically each time (in...
I think upgrade cycles are a huge issue. With my iPhone I want one every 2 or three years--the carrier subsidy model virtually insures that I upgrade regularly. With my MacBook Pro, it starts feeling long in the tooth after a few years. Working with video and photos feels like it starts to drag--especially when you know there are faster lappys out there... My iPad, on the other hand, is running fine. It's fat and large compared to the Airs. The screen is a little cracked...
That was my first thought too. But then I read the article..."Electrically switchable mirrors are therefore key to Apple's proposed design. These components are capable of transitioning between reflective and transmissive modes when an electric current is applied, allowing for highly adjustable light manipulation without moving parts."
I don't think the point of this is to attract non users. I think it is to retain users (see, if you drop Facebook, you would have forgotten about this touching/witty/awesome post that got 127 likes) and to cut the legs from under TimeHop (as mentioned in the article).I hate to say it, but this isn't about you...
I guess I wasn't clear.I'm sure Apple doesn't want to send out stickers to the general public to post on establishments that support ApplePay because: think of the headache when yahoos post stickers on non supporting stores. I am quite sure there would be more confusion created than cleared up by this solution.17, hate Apple, and bored? Put some Apple Pay stickers around town--on a mom-n-pop shop that doesn't take credit cards; on a public toilet; on a BestBuy door. LOLZ!!
Well, if Samsung were doing something like that, my first impulse would be to post SamsungPay stickers on stores that don't support it. That would turn the merchants and the consumers against Samsung when confusion and irritability reign at the register.Now, I would be too mature to actually do that, but I imagine others out there who would not be.In the old "guerrilla marketing" days Apple had little to lose. Nowadays, you just _know_ that Stickergate would rule the...
I'm curious about this one. Last time I read about the Ive/Jobs meeting I remember hearing that Ive was planning to quit because he wasn't happy with the direction Apple's design work was going. I would want to read the book to see if this is actually a conflicting story or just a different spin on the same story...
In the long run, this is a good policy. The only problem is now, during pre release. I would expect the rules to be back...
Large caps, small caps...But what about humongous caps?  Thats what you have to look at to compare with AAPL... I believe that we are in for a few weeks of seemingly inexplicable stock decline.   There was just a huge run-up and there is going to be some pull back.  I think the stock will be in a malaise until the quarterly sales are released.  AI fans will say "But of course!  Why the surprise--we knew it was going to be another blow-out quarter!"  But if it was up to us,...
This^^^Is exactly what I would say.I don't know how many existing watch customers Apple will poach, but they will most likely grab the vast majority of new (or long returning) watch customers.
