So true. "Carphone Warehouse" has that air about it like "Radio Shack." Not what comes to mind when one sets out to buy a luxury item... Best Buy is the place to pick up a rubber Samsung "Gear" watch... but like White Falcon said above:"Yo, dude, you want this Monster battery pack and screen protector to go with that? How about our product protection plan? Do you have a Reward Zone card? You want one? You sure you don't want a Samsung watch instead? I'll sell you a Moto...
Makes good sense. However, 47th Street Camera store will have gray-market Watches on opening day.
Someone will get butthurt and then the guns start popping.
"The sale of patents owned by the Rockstar Consortium of companies could bring a windfall of $392 million in additional cash to Apple's March quarter..." I must be getting jaded. That doesn't seem like much money...I know it is...but it just seems like a piddling amount. I guess after Apple paid ten times that for a pair of ear phones and a list of music, anything in the hundred million range is chicken feed.
I predict Apple will sell more Watches in their first partial quarter then all the other "smart" watches sold to date by Samsung, MS, and the usual mix of brand X androids COMBINED. I dug that prediction out of the same place Munster finds all his juicy gems...
"Microsoft says the new Atom processor provides users with 10 hours of video playback." I thought the MS Slab o' Crapo was designed to create content; not consume it!? Come on, MS, how many minutes will it run a graphics-intensive application before sending up smoke signals and spinning up internal fans to howl like a Dyson vacuum cleaner..? No word yet on, "Will it Blend, will it Bend, or how well it will hide that you're getting serious work done on an iPad hidden...
Like the Windows 7 phone, buyers of MS hardware are once again orphaned abruptly, even if they recently purchased their crapo. It's enough to make one break out in frantic dancing for no apparent reason. As they say in Redmond, "Rinse and repeat. Our customers are born every minute."
Methinks thou hath exceedingly more gas than a multitude...
I agree, Apple is using a lot they learned on iDevices to enhance OSX products. While they someday may build an iOS laptop, it won't be called a Mac or even emulate OSX. Apple's intent is to bridge away from a file-based OS with iOS and while they are not there yet, it's a direction they are pointed toward. I don't see any advantage for this direction, but perhaps this are some.This is also a feeling I have about the latest MB. It represents a directional move by Apple...
It's not just freedom. Apple's team has the goal of creating an outstanding product. Usually other company's product teams have to deal with competition running the same OS; be it Winders or Android. So their objective is to fill a feature list at the lowest possible cost; even if that means "creative" spec writing.
