dk49 said:I have always wondered how the Apple Watch detects AFib? Does it require a special sensor, other than the heart rate sensor? If not then why don't all smart bands/smart watches with heart rate sensor detect AFib?
Funny thing about Afib is that you don't really know that you have it. I.e., you don't really notice that your heart is beating fast. Although it does make you feel very sluggish. So I guess you could notice it if you were educated about the symptoms.
DAalseth said:So what? Google, Apple, all the online stores have the right to negotiate whatever terms they want with any customer. They could tell company X they want a 30% cut, company Y a 100% cut, and company Z a 1% cut. That's their choice and it's just between the store and the company. Do you think Walmart has exactly the same terms with all of the vendors in their store? Target? Canadian Tire? Amazon? Of course not. In the case of Netflix you can't even claim it was some kind of market limitation, because it's available on multiple platforms including Roku, and over the web. I honestly don't see what grounds somebody outside of the deal is suing over.
All corporations, including Apple, have the same freedoms as individuals in society. But most people don't get that. And people also don't get that all corporations are ultimately owned by, guess what, individuals. On the other hand, we free individuals have the right to not buy from Apple if we so choose. So I support people's right to hate Apple.
