"Charge nightly" or "about a day" mean absolutely nothing. I know of no agreed upon amount of time ascribed to those terms.   It will get about 12 hours of normal use when it ships, plus or minus an hour. The only question for me is will that include the screen being on all that time? A device like this only makes sense if I can glance down at it and see what it is telling me. If I have to "wake" it first, the watch is garbage.   Personally, any device of this type is...
Actually, as an investor, the 16GB looks brilliant. Competing flagship phones increasingly come with 32GB. Apple being Apple, of course they come in low ball with only 16GB but people have come to expect that crap with Apple. Here is where the brilliance comes in... Apple knows there isn't anyway they could get away with charging $100 for a 16GB upgrade to 32GB. Even with Apple's history of notoriously high prices, that just wouldn't fly. So for $100 they bump it to 64GB....
Which is probably why it will only have 1GB. It is not because of battery life, it is because it helps keeps people on the hardware upgrade cycle. -kpluck
This. I haven't been answering security questions with accurate, truthful information for years. I use random nonsense answers which I store in 1Password. That being said the idea of security questions is stupid. If you answer them truthfully they are worthless and if you answer with made up stuff, like I do, it becomes a problem managing them defeating their purpose. Any company using security questions is in engaged in "security theater". They want to look like they are...
IOS 7, 91% of IOS users. Android 4, 85.7% of Android users. Of course, that doesn't have the click bait ring to it does it? -kpluck
Well I don't know if you are serious or not but I didn't like it either. People are all warm and fuzzy about the ending but I think that misses the point. This kid was still buried in his iPhone the entire time watching the family from the outside. Sure, he was putting together the video but it doesn't change the fact that he wasn't really interacting with them. I think it is a great example how people sometimes think they are using technology for a great end purpose but...
 The fact that you don't understand that is a racist statement says more than I can ever say about subject. Just because someone is of a different ethnic background or gender doesn't necessarily mean you will get significantly different "opinions" or "experiences". It is all about how they were raised and educated. The only way to hire someone is to select the best, most qualified candidate for the job. Period. If a company isn't happy with the diversity of candidates,...
http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html KitKat is a .x release. If you look at version 4.x or higher, the adoption rate is pretty high at just over 85%. -kpluck
Completely meaningless.   If Apple really wants to help small business they should apologize for choking off supply of Apple hardware to 3rd party computer stores and pledge availability of Apple hardware equal to that of company owned stores going forward.   -kpluck
The capacity of the battery doesn't matter. What matters is how long you can use the device. I am guessing whatever size battery Apple puts in their new phones, the run times will be longer than the current models. The only question is how much longer than the current models and how will the run time compare to the competition.   Anyone that simply looks at the capacity of a battery and decides if it is good or bad is just being stupid. It is like judging the quality of...
