If the iWatch is incapable of performing real world use as a watch, it will not be capable of performing all the other functions it was supposedly designed to do. Say the function is as an alarm -- a haptic function that is supposed to be present. Well, if the watch is sitting bedside charging overnight, the haptic functionality isn't going to work. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. One useful function of a well-designed watch might be to monitor your...
Research. Easy. Just look at the specs on the Apple site. Done. Runs only one day requiring recharging; my current Timex watch runs 12 months before I have to change the battery. I wear my Timex 24x7; Apple Watch has to be taken off to charge every day. I wear my Timex in the shower; iWatch not waterproof. I wear my Timex while swimming and is good down to 50m; iWatch not water proof -- maybe it can handle getting rained on. My Timex cost me $40 about 6 years ago,...
I don't see the watch as anything impressive. If it cannot function as a normal watch that can replace a real watch, then it has little value. Unless Apple management and other employees who have been using the Apple Watch themselves and realizing its inadequacies, did a significant redesign of the product, I don't see the product selling. Somewhere Apple must be gauging how many will sell in order to decide how many to manufacture.    I predict the Apple Watch will flop...
The DOJ is not corrupt but is merely continuing the same arguments that have prevailed for decades. It's wrong, but the position has been wrong all along.  Here is the real problem. Since Reagan administration, we've had continuous mergers creating effective monopolies across a whole range of business sectors. Banking is the obvious one, and you see where this has led. There is a reason we have an oligarchy -- and this is the biggest reason.  The argument that has won out...
Their decision was by far the most appropriate.
Certainly true. Further, as much as Steve Jobs passing was sad, a shock, even to those who did not follow him or Apple, or the computer industry, I think a market for a Steve Jobs movie is passed and wasn't all that strong to begin with.    The Isaacson biography was not all that good -- it's easy to put down -- and limiting the movie to three thematic periods is a problem. It simply sounds like there is very little of a good story present. It is not clear that the...
The review does not mention the personal parameters (weight, gender, for example) that would need to be known to estimate alcohol metabolism rates.
My iPad is used outside the home every day -- at meetings, taking notes, reading documents and manuals, reviewing literature, doing literature searches, importing articles for later reference. In any case, the auto lock/unlock is not hampered at all by its integration with TouchID. Open the cover and place one of your fingers on the button -- viola. Takes all of about 1/2 second more than if TouchID was not present. If I need to look to/from iPad frequently, I don't shut...
Sounds like these are ambulance chasing attorneys. They actually have no plaintiffs who were harmed. As in most product class action cases, the big money in class action settlements go to the attorneys, while the actual plaintiffs get pennies. 
My connections to the internet are quite slow under OS X 8.1.1 which uses WIFI, of course, on an early 2011 MBP. Good to know its not my older hardware.
