First, Promise Thunderbolt enclosures are not meant for the casual user.  They never have been.  If you use your Mac for data intensive work where time is money and performance is everything, then this is for you.  I know enough people in my own town slobbering at the mouth for gear like this because it's right for their business.   Also, I don't think that Promise sells bare enclosures with these.  You can use other drives with it, but it will come with some that are...
Ok, TS, I tried to dial back the flame war with with what I thought was a cogent reflective essay. You respond by basically blasting me by saying I don't have a clue of what I'm talking about without any decent argument backing up your statement. If you're going to flame, at least give a good argument as to why I'm off base. Otherwise, I'm writing you off as someone who cannot even make it in a high school debate club. As for your second point, it's not a bad one...
It's a little ironic that the two biggest guys here are locked in a cage match.  But since I'm not usually a fan of flame wars, let's back down from the vitriol.  I'll make my argument and you are more than free to respond in kind.   OK, back to the original point of an Apple gaming machine of some kind.  Let's go over some facts.  The gaming console market is right now owned by three big players, Microsoft (XBox 360), Sony (Playstation 3) and Nintendo (Wii).  And of...
Really TS?  An App Store for the Apple TV is obvious to just about everyone.  It's required if you want to do a proper gaming console.   As for the Wii, I meant a new Wii successor, not a mild update to the existing platform.   And speaking of which....PIPPIN?  Seriously??  Nobody but nobody but the most deluded Apple haters throws that old failure from the dark days of the 90s to make a point.  Wake up and join the 21st century.  Back then, Apple was laughed at by the...
Here's what we will probably see...an Apple TV with 802.11ac networking and not much else.What we should see: a processor upgraded version that transforms Apple TV into a media player/gaming console with controllers and an App Store. Given the fact that the console market is under transition with the PS4 and XBox One ready to launch (and the Wii lagging without an update), there hasn't been a better opportunity to disrupt the console gaming market in years. And Apple...
There have been many studies done on iOS and Android customers. This is just another one that verifies the opinion that Android buyers, by in large, are very poor customers. They are cheap, basically. They prefer free apps to purchased ones and don't respond to in-app purchases nearly as well. And they pirate apps like nobody's business. And now we find that even with targeted ads, they are poor customers there too. There was an article on CNet today blasting Nike...
 Actually, Nest as an indepedant is pretty cool.  Although the founders are former Apple, many of their senior management are former Google and other companies, which gives it a nice cross platform vibe.  Even the Google Security team did work at Nest to strengthen the overall platform as a side project.
Not pointless at all. Gas furnaces are the leading cause of CO leaks in a house. And the point of the device is to get you out of the house first. Shutting off the furnace is a bonus.
 The Protect does has a light which is designed to light the way in the dark as you bump around your own house at night.  I'm sure it probably lights up in a nighttime emergency, especially since people will be scurrying past it anyway trying to get out.
 Maybe, but the Protect will still alert you to get the hell out, regardless of where the CO leak is coming from.
