That's one thing I actually miss about XP was the startup sound!
Notice I said "one thing" ;)

I have the background, thanks. Relic is a tech gourmand and has her reasons for being interested in a wide variety of products from multiple different manufactureers. She has an open and enquiring mind and is not saddled with the technology equivalent of racism, which a good many of the regular posters here seem to suffer from.
You are the one who is clearly over-sensitive. Being upset at someone because they think highly of an electronic gadget that you don't is pretty messed up.
Over-sesnsitivity point: proved.

Swiss perspective here: DED obviously spent his time in Switzerland at the top of the crop, shopping at the one place in Zurich where groceries cost two to ten times (depending on articles) what they cost in a regular supermarket a couple hundred meters down the road. I really liked the picture of the Swiss Apps (alps), too.
No, seriously: The insight is quite spot on, the technical aspects are correct.

No. Surprised it took this long to figure out cnocbui is a troll. Many of us blocked him a long time ago, and for the very same reasons. More like this was that "last straw" post in a long string of useless comments that finally caused MagMan1979 to add cnocbui to the block list.
As to Relic, she's very biased. Look at any discussion involving the Nvidia K1 processor for proof of this. She seems truly upset that Apple makes the most advanced ARM processors.

Anyone planning on visiting Switzerland please let me know, I can hook you guys up with the best places to go, help with finding a hotel on the cheap and free rail tickets. I still have over 12 friends and family rail passes sitting in a drawer some where (also can be used with smart phones). Plus I wouldn't mind getting together for a Coffee, maybe in Luzern.
Lastly, yes, I'm still fighting breast cancer, I am home now after spending a little over a year in the hospital and clinic. I try hard to take life day by day and take nothing for granted. I'm just happy that I survived this long, not for me but for my family.
That's two assumptions I wouldn't dare make yet.
1.) Why should the availability of the 2nd model be any better at the beginning? It surely depends on the capacity to produce them and the amount of people who'll want one.
2.) One year rhythm for Apple Watch? I expect a two-year rhythm. Maybe they'll announce some additional bands or even materials (plastic sport version as an entry level model that uses the same chips/sensors) inbetween "real" new models. Of course, 6 months after first sale is still 6 months closer to the next model – regardless of when that actually happens.

Also there won't be so much 'hype'. Not everybody that had the first one will buy the second one etc.
Availability of the iPhone was better, the longer it was on the marked already.
I don't see why the Apple Watch should be on a 2 year rythm. But nobody knows, of course.
