Apple event coming ... Time to select a lazy meme and get some attention. I think "lock in" would. E a good one! How is this proxy payment concept (if there's truth behind it) "lock in"? Do your purchased items get taken from you if you leave iOS? Do your credit cards stop working? Do they call EVERY good feature of every product a "lock in" because you lose the feature if you don't use the product? Sounds like someone wants a way to spin happy customers into something...
Six Samsung "smartwatches" this year! And a zillion from every other company. Apple's hardware ("smartwatch" or whatever) will be trivialized as "only having a few innovative differences and looking better." Meanwhile the important thing--the SOFTWARE and the whole ecosystem--will be overlooked in favor of spec-obsession. The REAL value of tech is what it DOES, and software (from OS, to specific integration with hardware features, to 3rd-party support) is what matter...
I'm very glad that the pre-loaded album thing is not true. That would be approaching Android- and Windows PC-style style crapware where the device maker sells your screen to third parties! (An MP4 would at least be more harmless and easier to delete, and Apple has done things like that before--my first Mac came pre-loaded with a Barenaked Ladies video as a QT demo--but it's still a tacky idea.) If the iTunes store and U2 want to give out free codes or something, that's...
The biggest threat to PayPal is their own awful, convoluted, stagnant system. It's like a throwback to 1995.
To the haters: one size of HQ does NOT fit all. Choice is good.
Throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. Sell the sizzle, not the steak. Developers will again tell Samsung: not this! Samsung can make a few of their own hacky, redundant apps support new hardware features, but third-party support will be poor as usual. Which is why combining OS and hardware from two companies with conflicting interests is never a good idea.
OK, sounds like reasonable component of a plan, but... A) Is it two $10k scholarships per minute? Or just two, period? Speaking as a white male who has had plenty of childhood AND career advantages from my race (and where that race put me to grow up) ALONE... two is not much to level things out. B) It would suck to be an Aboriginal Australian kid.
"We are deeply conscious of fashion, and this giant sharp-edged arm-brick avoids it at all costs. We've used scratch-resistant sapphire to insure pristine transparent fragments when it shatters on the edge of a door. Until that happens, you can enjoy our lower-than-centered display, which brings awkwardness akin to the Moto360's flat-tire edge to a whole new shape we like to call: the Rectangle!" Seriously--companies have been running WAY too hard chasing Apple rumors!...
BREAKING NEWS: Price Unknown for Unknown Product JUST IN: Commenters Commenting on Price Being Too High or Low for Unknown Product
Since ergonomic keyboards sometimes tilt AWAY from the user, I've assumed that's the best angle (as long as a wrist rest is involved). So I never understood why it's good to make a flat keyboard tilt the wrong way, towards you (making the laptop wrist rest less useful in the process). I know many of us have habits from typewriter-inspired tilted desktop keyboards, but is it truly ergonomic to prolong that habit? I can see people might WANT their laptop to match their...
