I really wanted to buy 2 or 3 of these. I was waiting until they became available in Ireland, but which weren’t yet due to.......Siri specifics, presumably. 🤷🏻♂️ Even though I’d say that’s very much a minority use (and even more so given my experience of Siri, which is almost always disappointing.)Myself and a few others were considering driving the 2hrs to buy them in Belfast. Where they’re available and work because it’s UK. 🤦🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️It felt to me like an untapped market just yet to mature.
Wait - isn’t Apple based in Ireland???I’ve always wondered if there was some legal reason related to taxes (and the way Apple uses Ireland for that), but 🤷🏻♂️
I LOVE the look of this phone. The square edges were always my favourite - I always felt all iPhones since were a backwards design step.Colours, however - who cares? They only matter for the 3 minutes until you put it into a protective case.I’m on a X - so the camera would be a really big upgrade, and almost worth it. €1160 ($1370) is a lot for a camera though!Outside of the U.S. not being given the full 5G capabilities is a big no for me. (I’m in Ireland.)
Again, better to use the terminology of crashes or collisions, not accidents.Cars are dangerous machines and there will be deaths when the rumored "Apple Car" gets into accidents.An accident would be a vehicle slipping on oil or black ice (assuming the driver was driving appropriately) - ie generally unavoidable at the time and no one is at fault.A collision or crash is something preventable. For example, by a human driver driving at the correct speed for the circumstances, or not checking their phone, or not driving tired or drunk. Or by a driving software leaving sufficient braking distance, or recognising and knowing how to respond to a potential hazard. Or by hardware being properly checked and serviced. Etc.
