A very close friend of mine who is 52 hard a heart attack while out running recently, he was wearing his Apple Watch 5. He told me the day after that is Apple Watch never signaled anything was wrong before or during the attack. My point don't put too much weight behind what Apple claims about this device.

Me too - Watch OS3 has given mine a new lease of life, so much so that for my usage, I see no need to upgrade. I suppose this will be seen as a problem with 'built in non-obsolescence', the same way that the iPad 2 my wife uses is still chugging away after 5 years of use!!

It can't.Faulting Apple Watch for not detecting a heart attack is like faulting a Porsche for not being able to haul a yard of topsoil.
It'll make virtually no difference - I seem to get asked nearly every other visit on some sites to confirm my GDPR preferences - its almost as if they think that I will eventually give up saying no to advertising cookies etc if they ask often enough. More likely I'll just stop using the site!

Telling people to just buy a second computer is silly.Yeh, the iPad definitely has the innate capability to be a very capable 2 in 1. But so far weaknesses in iPadOS are constraining it from reaching its full capabilities.Come on Apple! You opened the door for the Mac to take full advantage of Apple's cohesive Ecosystem. But, you can't keep it handcuffed. You need to:
1) Support Microsoft in producing a viable ARM edition of Windows. To simply blame Microsoft after Apple moved away from it is silly.2) Upgrade the iPad so it can compete with the 2 in 1's. The best way to do that might be to let it switch from iPadOS to MacOS as it goes from tablet mode to laptop mode. It can be done. Others have already done similar.Steve knew that it was more important to give users what they needed rather than simply producing a slick product.Apple needs to remember that.
Apple doesn’t need Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and now Intel to sell a great product, soon Qualcomm, and AMD will join that list in the rear view mirror.
And by the way the Surface is a placeholder like the Pixel line of smartphones a me too product going nowhere.
Helping Microsoft a what laugh.....No, Apple doesn't need them -- but Apple customers do.And, instead of walking away from Intel and thumbing their noses at Microsoft (very childish!) they need to help them build/upgrade a version of Windows that an M1 Mac can boot from Bootcamp. For an Apple customer, its a fall back, an insurance policy, in case they have to run something that won't run on MacOS.
Whilst I understand that there are some people that still need Bootcamp, I agree that things are very different nowadays.
