Have you taken one apart to see where the camera will go next year? Or better, have you ever taken anything apart, like say a watch, or even a clock, and put it together again?How people can believe that Apple leaves out technology just to drive later upsales always astounds me. Like you know what they are capable of cramming in that little case. Did you even see the video of the circuitry stack? Go back and look at it. For shame. Get some realism. Do something with your...
Anything but a seven-day week would be a disaster, from the point of view of the 13-month restoration imperative. (28 days divides into 4 7-day weeks.) I say imperative because we must recalibrate our time and season sense to harmonize with the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The Moon is the timing signal for much of Earth life, including especially humans, with our cognitive engagement with visible environment signals. The 13-moon calendar goes back to Neanderthals, and was...
I have to congratulate you on your fortitude in checking out these other toxic sites. Even MacRumors is too disturbing to me. These people are so absurdly vicious about Apple, my blood pressure can't stand it. They don't have to like anything from Apple, that doesn't bother me, it's the pile-on of hysterical hate that's just completely wicked, as in Old Testament ripeness for divine destruction. It's pathological.
Those thick lines are insulators to isolate the antennas. They have to be there and they have to be that thick. They aren't arbitrary or chosen as design features.We'll be learning more about their function soon, I expect. But one thing we know now is that Apple doesn't do things like those inlays for frivolous reasons. They may adjust one to be symmetrical with the other, but that's it.
We absolutely should go back to 13 months. The Babylonian twelve months is a crime against nature for which we're still paying, actually more with each passing "moonth" that we ignore the harmony of the solar system that we are immersed in. The proverbial "year and a day" is 13 X 28 days = 364 days, plus one day off to get over the New Year's hangover.
Finally a calm and considered write-up of the watch part of the event. Several points of Apple-ish elegance and inventiveness reveal how hard they thought about and worked out the concept of "computer watch" or whatever you want to call this new category. 1. The UI as a freeform galaxy of apps, with time in the center, grouped by "neighborhoods" of apps. 2. The precise breakdown of input into crown wheel scrolling, selection by pushing on two different switches as well...
You just reminded me of the times i've left my phone and my iPad and gotten them back only by sheer luck and human decency. If it could be aware of your stuff, it's worth the price right there.
China, Japan, and who knows, maybe Korea. Plus me and numerous other screen fetishists/photo lovers.
Let me guess: suburb of Naptown? I always pictured you in Madison County somewhere.
"Something about [my perception of] this phone seems very off."My guess is that you are very anxious to conclude that Tim Cook was prevaricating about waiting for the technology to be ready to do big screens the Apple way, as well as being anxious to show that those who agreed with him (like me) were just making excuses for him .You got parts of the answer today, but it's way too complex to approach simplistically. First, no info on whether the backplane for the display is...
