it’s a serious question. I know you can send it back if a new model comes out in two weeks after purchase. I wonder if it applies also to price reductions.

To show the problem of a Peloton, I’ll leave you this image:
There’s a peloton of a dozen cars in the slow lane. I’m in the middle lane, and I realize my off ramp is coming up. I have a huge wall of vehicles to my right. I turn on my turn signal. No one notices because a computer is driving, and no ones eyes are on the road. What do I do? Do I accelerate or brake aggressively to attempt to get around the wall of vehicles... BOOM I didn’t make it.
Until all vehicles are self-driving the peloton idea is a disaster waiting to happen. Somehow I don’t think we’ll have self driving motorcycles... It would kind of defeat the purpose.
loopless said:I agree that 1Password is much more than a simple password manager - I have been using it for a long time.However, the iOS keychain is now much more convenient than 1Password as a single user password manager.I have several apps/web sites that prompt me regularly for a password. With keychain, I can unlock the keychain quickly with touch id, then keychain enters them directly from the "keyboard" - the suggestions seem always correct and match up with the app/website.With 1Password I would be switching back and forth to the 1Password app to get the username and password.
This is the reason I use both Keychain and 1Password. I consider 1Password as my system of record, though, and Keychain as a copy only for convenience. Though with the new password API coming in iOS 12, I'm hoping I can clear out my Keychain and just use 1Password.
And if you're wondering why I don't just use Keychain only, it's because I use 1Password for more than just passwords, and like I said I consider 1Password as my system of record. Data management is leagues better in 1Password for me. When I create or change a password on my Mac, I let Keychain save the password when it asks. That's about the extent of the effort I put in for Keychain.

People don't realize nothing like this just takes off. When you do a major change like this it takes quite a while to get everyone on board (Retailers, Banks, and Customers). It doesn't matter who is CEO of Apple or who is running it. This is a huge undertaking for everyone involved. This will succeed in time...patience people! Patience!
"You take ApplePay yet?"
"<shrug> don't know."
"Can you tell your boss a customer would like it?"
"<shrug> <rolls eyes> would you like help out sir?<deeps sigh, looks at line forming>"

I always freak out at the checkout line, forgetting how to bring it up, taking a bunch of photos, knocking stuff over, punching at least one person, and I end up having to turn the phone on and going into the Wallet app like a senior citizen. I just can’t get Apple Pay to work like it does in the videos. I still don’t know.
If you have Touch ID and your finger is on the reader, it authenticate immediately. It is very quick when used this way.
