Apple's iWatch and Apple TV initiatives could drive an additional $80 billion in yearly revenue - Page 2

post #41 of 46
Arguing that the current discount on Apple shares factor in a significant deceleration in revenue and earnings growth....

 

...the current discount ... factorS in...

 

Subject-verb agreement is 2nd-grade. Accuracy=credibility.

 

(Not that this seems to apply to analysts, of course.)

I'd connect the two ideas - the wristband device, besides whatever else it would do, is packed with sensors and works with Apple TV full screen gaming, ala Nintenedo Wii, only way more data points.

There is a mute switch for that...even so your watch would probably flash the back-light on when you have a message...since the iPhone does the same.

 

and yes, I have attended events that ask you to turn off your phone. You know what I do?  I turn it off and PAY ATTENTION.

3. Phones off during takeoff and landing - and most people leave them off for the full flight.

4. Most of the rumored phones do more than show the time. They show weather, etc. In order to see that on your phone, you have to do more than just glance at the phone.

As always, if you don't like the idea, don't buy one. But please don't pretend that yours is the only possible position and that no one has the right to have different wants than you.

 

So basically you're all saying you want an iWatch so you can have a new way to:

 

1. Not do your actual work...and have a more secretive way to check your personal messages without your boss knowing.

2. Not turn off your cell phone on a plane, since if your iWatch receives data from your iPhone, you'd have to leave your iPhone on to get data.

 

And basically all iPhones show the time.  Pull it out of your pocket and press the top power button.  Shows the time.  Does it really take that much effort to pull it out of your pocket?  And...if you work in an office with a computer terminal in front of you...there is the time that shows in the upper right of the info bar (lower right on PC's).

2. I don't like having a bulky object around my wrist as it interferes with typing, especially on a MBP.
3. I have become very anti-fashion, anti-jewelery as I get older.
4. If I really do need to be somewhere promptly, I set an event on my iPhone.

As for the rest of the Apple fans, I am glad you will buy it. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I can't wait to see the Samsung fanboy ads mocking the iWatch.

I don't get it either. If Apple makes it, I hope it's great and groundbreaking, because the idea of an electronic watch seems silly. I gather that watches are more about fashion now that there are clocks in just about everything. Alarms can be triggered on any iCloud enabled device. Apple can probably make a fashionable watch, and I would expect that it's light and reasonably trim. It would be up to them to make the case for the watch.

I don't know if I ever used that acronym.

Here are the cons of ESP per Wikipedia:

• Audio quality may be slightly worsened due to compression artifacts when the system is in use. Quality is improved with uncompressed buffering.
• Battery life is shortened due to the fixed (CAV) read speed of the disc and power required by the memory.
• Older players (1992–1997) had at most half the battery life when the skip protection system was in use.
