  • T-Mobile's John Legere boosts Apple Watch LTE speed limit in response to customer feedback...

    It's been puzzling reading this thread. I'm in the UK and we don't have to register a new device to use with a service. And I can't see why you need to. Forgetting the 'dozens of devices' comment earlier, surely, you have a phone contract with a data package. All your devices ( if you choose) go through that package, you're not using up extra bandwidth. I bought my partner an AW recently and just paired it with her iPhone. She uses either/or with no problem (be kind of tricky to use both together I guess!).

    I know it works a bit differently in the US (our phones work anywhere/everywhere no matter the provider) but wtf?
    If your device isn’t registered you aren’t going to get on a cellular network. It is one of the most basic things about cellular.

    Your partners AW is connecting through your current cellular connection just like any devices you might tether through your phone. The AW3 connects directly to the cell towers.

    Only one hour talk time! 
    Talk time doesnt matter. Its not designed to be a phone replacement. The thing is like 1/6th the size of my phone so I don't mind that the battery doesn't match what a phone's does.
    I have a kid in high school and 1 in college and our family does more texting than anything else . Even at work, we use texting more than calls. With voice calls, immediate responses are short and I don't plan to have long conversations until I get back to a desk.

    Even with the AW2, I have answered calls on my watch when my phone was at the other end of the house. It's a lot easier to give a quick answer to a question either by vox or text than have to explain how come I missed a call.

  • Apple strikes back at Spotify's claims of unfair treatment in the App Store

    bbdroid said:

    And even though the 680,000 number is small compared to Spotify's overall paid subscription base, it is by no means insignificant.  

    I am trying to figure out how a small number compared to an overall paid subscription base is considered monopolistic.

  • Apartment & insurance firm sue Apple over lethal iPad fire

    "The investigation has been completed.  The cause is undetermined at this time; however, the origin is believed to be on the kitchen floor in the area of electrical appliances.  There is no indication of criminal activity."

    So how much more investigation was done and who made the determination that the fire was due to an iPad?

  • Apple Upgrade Program participants complain of no stock, scheduling problems

    Soli said:
    The whole point of the program is to be able to get a new phone after 12 months, not 14 or 15.
    You seriously thought the point of the program was to magically make components appear out of thin air because you signed a contract? Did Dumbledore send this agreement to you via owl?
    The point is that the program is actually a 2 year deal ... you get to trade in after a year and your contract restarts for another 2 years. That means that you slowly creep up to stretching the exchange period past the 2 year deal ... if you can't get an upgrade until 15 months, they have you on the hook for 2 years and 3 months.
