dedgecko said:The Marriot Bon Voy App seems to be doing this as well, or at least it appears to be. I open the app, tell it that I want to unlock my hotel room door, it says it’s ready, and I place my X against the door sensor - rrrrr-click! And I’m in! Slick shit!

As as far as countries, Apple Pay is in 56 Countries, and that is nothing to sneeze at.
aaargh! said:To be fair, Spotify has little choice but to use the App Store, it's not as if you can distribute iOS apps to consumers in any other way. Apple would have a point if Spotify could just put the IPA up on their website for users to download, but they can't.
claire1 said:Hmmm. Would Apple have rooted for an opposing team? I think inclusion is important and they should have but would they have?
I really think Apple are missing the mark on this. I’m confident - in a years time - they will have to rethink
ivanh said:In a nutshell, no difference in hardware and functionality from an ordinarily Apple Watch.
I have to say, I purchased a Surface Book 2 last year with the intent of it being my primary, daily computer. The feature set, impressive performance (the 15” with the GTX 1060), and aesthetics were all very impressive. The keyboard was great and the trackpad, while small, was very good. It is, without question, the closest thing to the Mac feel that can be had on the Windows side.
However, I ended up returning it after 3 weeks because Windows itself is just not there. It’s very good and MUCH better than it’s ever been, but macOS is so much cleaner, smoother, and overall easier to use and maintain. The trackpad on my MacBook Pro is MASSIVE and absolutely perfect, I’m one of the crazy people that love the feel of the butterfly keys, and the performance is great. The integration with my phone, watch, and Apple TV is the clincher, too.

Throw the book at them.There was a report on BBC Radio a little while ago about the increasing number of companies that are banning Smartphones in the workplace because employees were spending far too much time 'on social media' while they were supposed to be working.Social media is addictive. No, make that highly addcitive and needs to be treated as such.You won't find me on any social media site as I think they are all a total waste of time. All you do is expose your life so that advertisers can try to sell you more tat that you don't need and probably can't afford. Welcome to the machine people!
