See 1;07:38 inI originally responded to multiple posts -- don't know if it was you or someone else who claimed the Apple Watch display was not flexible ... As to your other point, re the SX chip being replaceable -- I think that is a good idea -- especially for those who buy a watch as a fashion statement..In addition to the SX, chip, it would be advantageous to have the cases, bands, etc. replaceable, too.I suspect the Apple Watch 2 will add cell, telephony, gps, etc....
1. Jony says the display is flexible!2. During the Apple Watch preso they discuss the difference between a tap on the display and a hard press (not a long press)3. They also discuss sensors around the display that can detect and differentiate between a tap and a hard press.4. Somewhere, [I'll try and find a link] they published an image of the Apple Watch with a small dotted outline of the hard press depressing the flexible display.But, one could claim that any...
But, the display of the Apple Watch is flexible -- Watch the keynote ... @67:45 Jony Ive talks about the "flexible Retina Display".
Mmm ... Speaking of mobile ... A girl and a guy I know, decided to jointly invest in one of those mobile restaurants ... They bought the vehicle, but were stumped as to what to call their mobile eatery establishment ... After much deliberation, they decicded on: Truck Buddies.
Don't underestimate the tactile and visual appeal of something old and weathered juxtaposedagainst something modern and sleek ...Here's an iPhone case:Here's an Objet D'Art made from wood siding salvaged from a pig farm in Marana Arizona ...Here's that same item used as a background for a photograph taken by my granddaughter:
Maple?I just got my 6 Plus with a black leather case ...Nice case -- but non-distinctive?I had walnut cases on earlier iPhones that I really liked!Would it be possible, with your wood technology to create a case from thin aged wood (naturally or chemically)? I suspect you'd need to coat it with epoxy (or somesuch) to provide a smooth surface and keep the wood intact.But I think it would make a really distinctive statement!Something like this:
Ahh ... I see what you are saying "I also see the server as being the gateway device, rather than an endpoint in the network. Easier to make remote access work securely."This may be what Apple has in mind -- they said that while out and about, the HomeKit app on your iPhone would securely communicate with the HomeKit accessories ... They didn't say how -- or communicate with what -- certainly not directly, with each accessory, in turn.I'll have to ruminate on the...
Oh ... Sorry! I misread your OP -- thought you were positing about winning over Android swishers.
Mmm ...Some friends of my parents in the 1960s in Pasadena (cold nights and poorly-insulated houses) -- revealed that they slept naked -- but always were a little chilled around the shoulders ...Their solution was to wear matching Bolero Jackets:I always wondered ...
You are saying, if HomeKit requires access through a hub -- than any HomeKit controller (AppleTV or iPhone) would need to provide access through that hub.A "hub", as defined by HomeKit is an aggregation device -- ala the Hue Hub. HomeKit can speak "hub", but it also speaks to the individual accessories --- the individual Hue bulbs.AIR, in order to meet the specs of a HomeKit accessory, the individual accessories must be accessible and able to identify themselves --...
