Misfit Shine - Personal Activity Tracker

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

 

 

Misfit Wearables has launched a Personal Activity Tracker made of Aircraft grade Aluminum that is waterproof and designed in partnership with one of Apple's previous CEO's, John Sculley in San Francisco. The device uses Bluetooth to transmit data to an iOS App called Shine, functions as a clock, monitors your sleep, tracks your steps, bike pedal rotations, and swim strokes, and can be used as a necklace, a wrist watch, or connected to parts of clothing or sportswear. The device is on sale for 99 dollars with a sports band costing you an extra 20 dollars if you choose to buy one.

They sell plenty of THIRD-PARTY products on the Apple Store, should we start talking about any of the new products those companies might be putting out in a forum titled Future APPLE Hardware…?!?

 

I think not…

 

The product you are going on about is NOT an Apple product, therefore it is NOT Future APPLE Hardware…

 

At BEST, this is something that should go in either the iPhone or iPad forums…

 

Future Apple Hardware is pretty much the APPLE line of laptops, desktops, all-in-ones, monitors, etc. …

Reads like advertising to me.

Oh well I'm sorry for trying to tell you about a product that I thought was cool. You could have ignored it like a pop up ad. Just because I made a post talking about a product not specifically designed by Apple that is being sold by Apple doesn't make it not affiliated with Apple. The same reason that Apple sells Nike Fuel Bands is because Tim is on Nike's board. You should consider third parties as well. Don't give Apple all the credit. The iPhone itself is made of components from lots of companies, yet you don't take to notice other people's work inside because it's branded with an Apple logo on the outside. Think before you speak.

How about you think before you post, specifically before you post in the WRONG sub-forum…?!?

 

The Nike Fuel Band is a bad example, as it is NOT an Apple product, no matter that Tim Cook may be on the Nike board of directors… I am not even going to get into an argument about Tim Cook being on the Nike board as the reason Apple sells it on their online store… They more than likely sell it because it is a THIRD-PARTY accessory that provides an added value/usage to the iOS line of mobile hardware products, nothing more than that…!

 

Using the fact that the iPhone is assembled from components made by other companies is also a bad example. It may be a collection of 'other peoples parts', but when it comes to the final product, it is STILL and Apple product…

 

Quit trying to rationalize you way out of the fact that you made a poor decision on where to post about a THIRD-PARTY product designed to work with Apple iOS devices; this forum is for speculation on FUTURE APPLE HARDWARE…

Okay, that's over the top. Could've just hit Report and asked Marvin to shift the thread over to Third-Party Products.

Are you referencing me here?

 

What is over the top…? My telling him to think before he posts, in response to his telling me to think before I speak…?!?

Eh, both. There's a time for emotion, but putting something in the wrong subforum is hardly it. *shrug*

It's in the right forum, there isn't a dedicated 3rd party subsection for future hardware. The description for Future Apple Hardware is:

"Discussion and speculation about future Apple and Third-Party hardware."

Okay, my bad…! I never realized that this forum was also for Third-Party hardware…

 

In my own defense, the description Marvin quotes is on the main forum page, I always just go straight to the sub-forum from my 'Top Sites' collection in Safari…

 

My apologies to the OP for my knee-jerk behavior…!
