This is hilarious. What were those efforts intended to hide? Everyone and his brother knew that GT Advanced was making screens for iPhones. They might has well put up a sign at the entrance of the employee parking lot: "Proudly Making Screens for the Next iPhone." These code names weren't going to fool anyone and had nothing to do with the secret manufacturing processes involved. I once had a job that was so secret, when I wrote down radar parameters, I was required to...
I've not looked closely, but hopefully this isn't as bad as the redesign of iTunes. The latter is so dreadful, it's now a contender with the Skype app of a few years back as the "worst Mac app ever." I've got a lot of tools out in my garage that I use for working on my house or garage. They are absolutely marvelous. Every time I pick one up to use it, it's unchanged from the time before. That, I like. The tool does precisely what I bought it to do. It doesn't need to...
Apple needs to establish a prestige brand like Honda has with Acura and Toyota with Lexus. If they don't, the disgust a lot of us feel about this tacky, tasteless, overpriced junk will spill over into our attitude toward Apple products in general. Besides, people with more money than brains need a simple way to tell prestige products from the plebeian ones that work just as well and only cost a fraction as much. And no, I don't have any idea what that name should be....
I've still yet to see what I want%u2014one I can put on my ankle that'll vibrate when I call comes in or an alarm goes off. It'd be great for places that hate cell phone ringing and for couples where one must get up early. It wouldn't have to cost much and the battery would last for weeks%u2014unlike these smartwatches.
Hackers of the world%u2014the dastardly kind%u2014take note. There's money in this, lots of money. Keyless, Bluetoothed cars can be broken into. Can hotel rooms be far behind? Probably not. At least, with all that computerization, you'll know precisely when you were burglarized. That'll be a small comfort.
Historical implications? I suspect Jony needs to take a modesty pill. This is not a vaccine for Ebola, a cure for cancer, or faster-than-light travel. It's just a watch.
Ah yes, Apple will go nuclear to drive down Samsung, with factories in democratic South Korea. But it has no problem making its own products in cheap-labor China, a brutally repressive, single-party dictatorship. I've come to suspect that the company of "think different" doesn't think at all%u2014at least about democracy and freedom. Its obsession with profit extends all the way down to the corporate bedrock and its ideas about virtues never go beyond putting solar panels up.
I'd hoped Amazon would break with all the irritations of the current cellphone market. No such luck. Just another cell phone but with that silly fake 3D stuff. That and not price is why if failed.
Others are right, requiring Office 365 fees is a show-stopper from me. I don't use Office enough to justify that cost.
Three years has nothing to do with it. Apple's hardware requirements are support for Bluetooth 4.0, which is supports. This is just Apple's overpaid executives trying the make themselves even richer by crippling their software to force a hardware upgrade. They're so petty and small. They haven't, to my knowledge, attempt an excuse for this behavior.    I grow tired of Apple's little fanboys, particularly those obsessed with bodily excretions. They're not as tiresome as...
