they aren't going to disrupt anything with this are they, I know inside you are right. I just wish it were different.
I respectfully disagree. I looked up Foxtel's website to see what they charge and get renowned for being a rip off.$25 gets you 40 channels, with MTV, discovery, Nat Geo, Disney, nick and heaps of branded news, sports, movie, music, drama, and entertainment channels.that is approx 60c a channel.add a pack like entertainment or doco pack which gives approx 10 channels for $10.they are $1 / channelor a premium drama pack with HBO, BBC, FX (walking dead) which is 5-6 channels...
if Apple wants to disrupt then the pricing will need to be disruptive as well - as was the case with music on iTunes. all the pricing and bundling talk in these articles is, I hope, wrong. As that is just more of the old. single channels priced in tiers- $1 $2 $5 would change everything. $40 for a bunch of crap you don't want. not so much. I might be in the rare few but HBO for $15.. Erm I'll still just buy GoT on iTunes- of course I live in AU so we don't get the...
WAhhh something just clicked, so first up we know about it, then developers start working on it, then we get the launch deets, now some apps are coming out with watch modules, then the pre-launch launch happens.. By which time you can walk in with your iPhone thay might actually be equipped with apps and already has the apple watch app.. and then the sales rep pairs your phone to a watch to example how it all seamlessly works.. you get all of 15 mins and then away if goes....
Because you don't ask someone to try on a $1000-$17,000 watch while it is security locked to a counter, it wouldn't even really fit on the wrist with a meaningful security cable they will need time to do "market development" not just sales, whereby you educate your market about the product - this is best done on on one with early adopters who might otherwise walk away confused about what it does each person will have a unique use case that needs to be personally...
I am willing to check it out for a month. Though I have to say ASCII that it might be all you eat so long as you don't eat much or are happy with old food. I looked at Doctor Who this morning for example, the recent season is missing. As for "adding more content over time" good luck with that, if you check out iTunes even in Australia the owners of "rental" licensing for movies have it largely crippled. I could only begin to list the amount of films that are missing and...
Fitbit is meh, if you want a fitness watch then you would at least go Basis or Garmin as both trounce Fitbit. they also over provide a tonne of features that are of dubious value and quality instead of focusing on what is needed. being the Walmart of fitness devices isn't a place to aim for and they wallow in it with joy
solip was not whining about anything. here's whining. I would be suprised if Australian banks ever adopt Touch ID for their apps, most all still only offer limited length passwords, instantly hack able phone banking and woeful two factor dongles that get lost all too easily. you'd almost think they intend for you to be defrauded. on the flip side use your card in another city and chances are they will lock the whole account down to be safe. and then just to befuddle us...
Alas, I also was waiting to see if I could use it while swimming. I cycle, run trail and swim and wanted a device to measure all of those with constant heart rate. No swim, no Apple Watch. I too look like a Garmin customer after all.
It competes by lasting 7 days not less than 1. Which is you know, useful in a watch. Looks great, delivers on the functions, lasts a long time, has expandability, compatible with iOS and Android, already has a strong developer base and comes from a company that has sold more units than Android Wear OEM's Bravo. Let's give them a damn honest bravo.
