I have only good comments for the Apple staff. I've shopped in Apple stores in various UK, UK and Australian cities and they've always been helpful. I usually know what I want but on my last visit whilst out of country on business I needed to replace a bricked iPad (motherboard failure) which was out of warranty (my kid's iPad) & they offered me a refurbed at a great price. I replaced a MacbookPro power supply which was 3 years old and had just died on the road (my spare was at home) and the sales person showed me some neat features on the iPadPro absolutely relevant to my business when I made an enquiry . No company is perfect, but I've never seen any signs of disrespect at a Genius Bar and if someone is being obnoxious I'd expect the management to back up the staff and kick the customer out.
Normal customer service call : Normal Customer : "Apple can you help ?" Apple : "We've had a look, the answer is No we can't help." Normal Customer : "Ok, thanks for trying." This 'normal service call' US Government : "Apple can you help ?" Apple : "We've sent people down, we've given you advice and you ignored it. That's all we can do." US Government : "Tough, we want in & we're gonna lie to the Media and Public, until you relent and sue you because we want to spy on the world." US Government to everyone : "Our quadruple billions of NSA money used to spy on everyone in world can't get into the iPhone and we really need to look 'just this once'. Trust us we won't ever need it again (other than all the other cases we're pursuing quietly), we're the guardians of liberty and privacy." Everyone : "I think Not, we've heard this before and heard testimony to congress that you promised you weren't spying on us, then we found out you were. Once bitten..."
This is exactly the reason I wear an Apple Watch now instead of a more expensive Swiss watch that was purchased several years earlier.I was very active at sports when younger but experienced some heart racing after decent gym one day which was unusual, it wasn't a heart attack and I felt ok but was concerned enough to look into it.
The racing kept happening It kept appearing so I bought the Apple Watch to monitor what was going on. The watch confirmed a suspicion and I saw it peak around 150bps, I saw a Dr, he put me on to beta blockers then I had an ablation surgery a couple months later.The consultant said I'd lost 30% of the muscle strength in the heart by it racing over a short period of time and I probably would have had a stroke.When I work out now I make sure I keep under 120bps to save any stress.
These watches literally save lives for a few hundred dollars.
I don't want Facebook tracking me so keep hitting them Apple.
Complaining that their business is having problems because another company won't allow them to access unsuspecting users of that companies devices means that the business is flawed in the first place and if revenue projections are hit then tough
DAalseth said:I’ll update, but really only to keep currant. Everyone is crowing about Focus. I don’t use DND so an improved DND is just of no interest. The Privacy improvements are good. I never turn up my nose at improved privacy/security. TBH the rest of the list is interesting but I doubt I’ll use them much.
EDIT: To make it clear, I hope that this ends up being this decades Snow Leopard. Refined and rock solid. The standard we compare the next ten or so releases to. I don’t see a lot of the new features as being of much interest, but I am pleased by all the talk about back end improvements, and refinements.
My preference is always a 2 release cycle, 1st release new features, 2nd refines the features and optimises performance so the changes are more gradual but the OS says solid.
I got my watch a couple of weeks ago; for the apps I use it's working out great. It's just a matter of figuring out which apps and business uses are suitable for a watch or not. If developers are not seeing an uptake of their app it's probably a design fault or their model does not work on the platform. I'd rather see a small number of high quality apps where all the developers make a ton of money for getting it right, rather than a whole pile of garbage apps.
