This gives me wood.
Yukon is not a province of Canada. It is a territory.
Two words: Ug. Lee.
Interesting article, interesting analysis.   For me, it is just obvious that Apple's products do what I need and want. Never had an ounce of trouble understanding what they are for, how to use them, how they help me do things I want to do.   I can't say the same about other offerings. I'm forced to use MS products at work. They baffle me on the most basic level.    Samsung's big is better is baffling. I want it in my pocket and easy to handle. If not, I want the iPad...
Retail is dead. I will never go into a Macy's ever again. I was treated like crap last time I was in one. Buy everything I can online. Free ship, and in many cases, no tax. I would buy groceries online as well, but it is actually easier and faster to plan a week's menu on paper, then zip to the store I've been using for 10 years. I know where everything is, and at a glance can compare sale items. Oddly enough, that's the one application that doesn't match online, but...
I'm with many of the commentors. A big "meh" for me. Fairly, if you have lotsa kids, lotsa babysitters coming and going, house clearers, roommates, renters etc etc, it might fill a need I simply dont have. Good on you, tech has a solution. But for $220, this tech gets me exactly nothing, and in some respects sets me back. The whole "smart home" stuff is intriguing, if not overpirced. I can see stuff like this being a featture of a new home, and marketed as such. Maybe...
I do appreciate this objective review. It rather sums up my impressions. Here's the takeaway:   "Let's be real: If you're serious about productivity, and your daily workflow is even moderately complex, you're not going to rely solely on either an iPad or a Surface in their current state. That's not to say these devices can't get work done — they certainly can, but they're not as efficient at doing so in a number of ways."   Well said. Many miss the point that at these...
I don't have a use for this. I do have a use for my new Macbook Air. I did hold one of these surface machines. It just seemed...odd.
OK, well...that was pretty much a walk-off home run for the Apple bunch. Choices are good. And...I just made a decision: I've bought my last iMac. Next big purchase is a thunderbolt display to hook up a MacBook and or mini.
This whole "device space" stuff has me baffled. Any tech I buy addresses a specific need I have for it. I got a iPad on launch day a few years ago, and it still meets a need I didn't know existed when I bought it. I found that rather remarkable. I use my iPhone all the time; again addressing a need I've found indespensible. I guessed at a need, and discovered...hey...this is kinda cool and useful. All these things come at a dollar price, so one merely adresses value for...
