Aren't there games already (perhaps in crappy-watch form factor for $5) where kids have to give "care" to a digital thing on a wristwatch?   "Feed" the fish "change the water" spend "time" with dogs/cats/plants.   And the digital animal/thing thrives or suffers based on electronic "attention".   Aren't those things supposedly addictive for all ages?   That form factor would work here.    The digital thing taps the wrist, and sends a txt "I'm hungry".  "I want...
 She said she got notices about 80% data use in a month, a couple of times.  I don't know if she browses for hours or not. Now that she's on her own home WiFi, it'll never happen again.The usual point on forums of enthusiasts like this is that 16GB is unthinkable for all but basic users. But there are 10s of millions of them.  It's a real market.
 OK I'll take the bait:You're wrong for the following reason:  There are MILLIONS:  MMIILLIIOONNSS, of people, that load almost no apps, and only use the phone for basic purposes. My mother-in-law LOVEs her iPhone 5, and didn't know to connect to her own home WiFi, and was approaching her monthly 2GB limit.  I attached to her home WiFi and now she's good.She's also never loaded an app, and all her apps, are actually Icons of webpages that she likes (*I* didn't even know...
I'm having repeatable iMac-bricking with 10.10.1.  I think it's my HD. Quote: I really appreciate all this great advice.  If you're talking about clients, then you just gave me $-advice, and I'm grateful. No FW800 at home, and I was going to ask why all the fuss before just fresh-clean-installing Yosemete directly from recovery-mode, but  I understand now that you're saying if the internal is on the fritz, the FW800 based one can be used multiple times (after a new HD...
I'm having repeatable iMac-bricking with 10.10.1.  I think it's my HD.   Apologies in advance I know this isn't a tech-support forum, but just for chatting purposes:         [  Our late-2008 MacBook loaded 10.10.1 fine btw. ]   One of the earliest 27" iMac's from Nov-2009:  2TB HD.  Loaded 10.10 fine.   After the 10.10.1 restart, and partway through the grey-screen-apple-logo with progress bar, it just STOPS.   No obvious HD sounds.  Just empty grey screen with...
 My 3 year old 4S has spent countless hours in the back pockets of jeans and khaki's, as my wallet has.  Each moves to the outside and there's never a problem with either. Actually the hard-edges of the phone and rubbing on seats actually wears the PANTs out, not the phone.  I learned that through a generation of pants that were kind-of ruined, and now I try front pocket, and just slide to the side.Wow.  A whole post about Pants.   What is this the Lego-Movie? Oops.
 Don't forget the kickstand.  The watch that can replace your Laptop.
There's a dairy farm near my house that has a white plastic iPad stand with CC-swiper (like an iMac stand, with a real iPad as the "screen"), as their POS system.  The last time we were there it was an all-cash operation, now they have the simple and effective way to sell. Really good question by afalkner.  ApplePay for some Milk that's only hours-old, with the moo-ing in the background.I love what Apple does for society.  1-song instead of 1-album, (.....a whole bunch of...
 I prefer when Paper Money goes from someone else's hand INTO my hand.If I get enough of it, I'll get the Watch.  Oops.  Topic-contamination.
The executive decisions are the same as they've always been, "What's best for the CUSTOMER", not the conglomerate or business partner. Do you like buying 1 song instead of buying a whole album?  Where'd that come from? Apple re-makes ENTIRE INDUSTRIES in the CUSTOMERs benefit. Even personal opinions should be made in context.
