Thank god for the iOS Apple Store. Bought my watch on my iPad while the Store on my iMac was still showing the be back soon screen. Same thing happened last year when I bought my iPhone 6. Too much computer traffic, or by design to encourage iOS use?
Giving the finger to Fox News initiates a rude tweet to the account of whoever is on the screen. Now that would be truly useful.
The problem is on the retailer side all right. Not enough of them. Even those who are officially on board are glacially slow to employ. Apple needs to offer incentives, especially to smaller businesses: underwrite or give them the hardware free.
I will not use it, will avoid merchants who do (and not ApplePay), and will tell them why.
Figure out how much Apple would lose by not selling in Switzerland before December, offer the guy a small percentage of that figure. Or, just wait him out. Apple will have no problem selling Switzerland's share elsewhere. Shortened waiting lists for the rest of us.
Sad that "contributors" have so little to contribute to the discussion. What passes as news in this country has devolved into little more than the TV equivalent of click bait. Reinforce people's prejudices or scare the hell out of them with wall-to-wall doomsday coverage. Discussions consist of pitting two diametrically opposed ideologues against each other who attempt to win by scoring the most points. The theory being that truth will miraculously appear in the collision...
What is she living off of these days? I smell reality show. She and Trump, two peas in a pod. Does that make her a Trumpette?
When I first got my iPhone 6, I was struck by the symbiosis of the beautifully polished rounded glass edge, sharpness of the screen images, and their closeness to the surface. I had the profound desire to lick the screen. Remember Steve's comment about the Aqua UI? That lickability came to fruition.
When I was young, back in the 60s and 70s, music was very important to me. I bought a lot of albums and listened to them often on my pretty good home stereo. Now that I'm almost seventy, i rarely listen anymore. Wish I knew why. I still appreciate current music, and buy it on iTunes sometimes. But the idea of sitting down and listening to an entire album is long gone. Has the ubiquity of music undercut its specialness? Has my taste for great fidelity been spoiled by ear...
I suppose minorities could say exactly the same thing regarding cops.
