It IS a division of Apple now, so...

'You're listening to it wrong.'
Awesome. Now we can all look forward to hours of mainstream media coverage of how Apple invented smart homes.
Besides, you can already run a nice little port replicator on your laptop using plain old USB3, including running dual monitors and gigabit ethernet.
"At $150/hour get someone else to do it for you."
Or at least give yourself some sort of 'friends and family' discount.
's what happens when you try to type a comment on a smartwatch.
"most of the walls in our house have rounded edges..."
Expect a visit from Apple's lawyers
£100 for the 40 watt (equivalent) version
add £100 if you want 60 watts, and another £100 for the 100 watt
Shoulda bought the iBelt
"If the watch can still perform the functions that it had when you purchased it, then it is not obsolete."
By this logic, you'd think you'd see a lot more iPhone 1's out there in the wild...
Whoa, whoa, whoa there, killer...
Who said you were buying anything? I'm sure buried somewhere in the TOS is a reminder that all you're doing is leasing the ability to be hip and fashionable at the coffee shop.
There's your difference. Rolex makes nice looking watches. Apple makes chunky square blocks with screens on the front.
Look at me!! Sitting on the floor beside the electrical outlet at the airport, charging my watch as well as my phone!!
I keep my access card in my wallet - I hate wearing the little yo-yo-on-the-belt holders, and lanyards make me feel like I should be backstage at a rock concert, not entering the office from the west stairwell. Problem is, our RFID readers also seem to read NFC credit cards, so when you wave your wallet at the reader, it's a crapshoot which card the reader is going to pick up first. Didn't take more than a few faceplants into a door that's still locked because my Visa won't open it before I finally learned to slow down and make sure I hear the little click of freedom.
Pardon me, Official Reg units only please.
How many Olympic Swimming Pools?
...or a large anchor tossed out the back door.
Shhh... don't contradict. What you're seeing here is the beginning of the RDF in action. Soon, Apple will have invented the wristwatch and everybody will have copied them.
"stuff you leave outside an Oxfam shop before running like hell"
Sitting in a pizza shop and people are starting at me wondering if I'm insane because of the laughing.
Passionate about ladies in their underwear
Betcha not so firm after they're taken of...
Possibly, but unlikely. From the video, it looks like the first indication that you're being 'lasered' at is that things start glowing red and exploding.
Windows 2000 is just a name, not a version number. It was actually NT 5.0, so you don't have to worry.
4Chan? Isn't that the guy who hacked into Apple and leaked those nudie pics of that girl from the Hunger Games?
Gee. $350 million? Apple execs might have to dig through the cushions of more than one couch to come up with that kind of money.
No, just as a proper Englishman, he doesn't pronounce the W in a word that ends in W, replacing it with an R instead.
And seriously? The 'watch edition' watch? What are the other ones? Socks and blenders?
Over here that joke is about corvettes and cacti
You're lucky. We have the dreaded 'Redneck in a Pickup Truck' to deal with as well as BMW and Audi drivers.
Known as the 'Rig Rocket' as they can only be afforded by oilfield workers, they're jacked up high, fitted with loud exhausts and 24" wheels, and the drivers are almost 100% dicks.
The other prediction that the 6+ will be a 'failure' compared to the 6 isn't news either. Samsung sells more Galaxy S's than they do Notes, but they still sell enough Notes to make them a worthwhile product, which is pretty much what I'll bet Apple is finding with the 6+
"So if - during bad weather - a tree falls on a train and kills 50 people, it's a natural disaster, not a train wreck?"
No, more like if a hurricane blows in and takes a train out, killing 50 people, which, incidentally, is 50 more people than were killed by the Fukushima plant getting hit by a record tsunami.
Better ban trains.
Bastages. Cork soakers. Always bullshteining you.
Sadly it's not just software sites like CNet... I know a lot of people who've made the mistake of Googling 'Java' or similar and clicking the first item on the list - which just happened to be one of the few advertised at the top of the search results. By the time I got involved in one case, they'd filled out the forms with all of their personal info and were wondering if they should buy the 'full support' package, whatever that was.
I have two users here - one with a Q10 and one with a Q5 and both had the same reaction when they got them (both upgraded from Curves). Within a week, though, they were going crazy with swiping and tapping, and both commented that the new interface is much faster to navigate and work with.
You'd prefer only reviews of phones with worse screens and chipsets?
Of course not. You've ceased to become a revenue stream for them. You're not going to be buying any more songs from iTunes and you're not going to be looking at any more ads on Facebook.
Gee, I wonder what Lookout is trying to sell
Supersize your memory from 16GB to 32GB
When something goes titsup, what you're doing to try and get it working again isn't called 'maintenance', it's called 'repairs'.
Does Optical Express advertise on Facebook? If so, there's no way she's ever going to have her page restored.
Maybe it's to avoid beheading?
“Don’t pick it up, pick it up, pick it up – quick, pass it on, pass it on…”
I also liked the part about how much concrete is used building a nuke power station. Wonder how it compares to building something like the Hoover Dam....
Ah, but it's an iProduct. You're expected to buy the Apple Watch 1S next year, so you won't care about the old one's battery life.
Fuel pump died in my car last week. Instead of reading the Haynes manual (Secure the vehicle on stands, disconnect the negative battery cable, etc. etc. etc.) I watched a 5 minute YouTube video. The guy took the camera under the car with him, pointed out what to disconnect and how to do it, and how to get the tank out and back in. Everything looked familiar when I slid under my car, and went very smoothly.
"Early users have already created rooms for everything from beat boxing videos to parkour to photos of home-cooked meals."
Wow. That REALLY makes me want to reactivate my FB account.
...and yet sales are fine. As for users, my users did grumble and complain when they got their first ribbon-ized Office, but they adjusted. Their proficiency may have lowered while they relearned it, but occasional users learned how to use the ribbon and power users didn't even notice it was there because the keyboard shortcuts still work.
That's one of the reasons Win8 is really bad. I think people can deal with a bit of a jarring UI change, as long as it still does what you expect it to do when you hit Ctrl-F, for example.
Besides, if they're all women, there will be a huge reduction in the chance of them getting lost on the way to Mars, as they will have no aversion to stopping and asking for directions.
'gay Nazi'? It's German for 'Leader' or 'Guide'
"Perhaps I just hate everyone.."
"Nothing wrong with that."
Exactly. It's also the only sure way to avoid being a racist.
Jack White and Dave Grohl have to make the list.
Well, everyone did say that tablets will take over from PCs and laptops. Looks like they've taken on the refresh cycle already. As with PCs and laptops, "It's a half mm thinner" is not a good enough reason to buy the new model.
