Apple Watch shipments: Pick a number, double it. Hey, it worked for them

Alan Denman

700 teens ?

Self conscious teens get peer trained to want the priciest.

So how many people want to spend their own money on a £300 iWatch that comes with with a $1 silicon type strap ?

The point of no Return

I can't help think they were a bit concerned about massive return queues a few days later

Some are getting theirs 6 weeks ahead of schedule. I really do wonder if htey vetted initial buyers to ensure only the keenest fanboys get theirs.

They will more likely just be happy to just pop it in a drawer after that exciting first few days.

Re: meh

Well Whatsapp works OK too.

Likewise it has no idiotic walled garden to navigate.

It should be made 100% free too though. Ads are where they will win big $

Want to go green like Apple, but don't have billions in the bank?

Alan Denman

Want to go green like Apple ?

You need a weird sense of logic to declare glue cement lover Apple, green.

That same algebraic logic tells us that Algae is also green.

Author, how about throwing it all away and starting again ?

Theres the dilemma in PC buying

Those 9 year old old C2D are as good as new Bay Trail Celerons and Atoms.

When new is not necessarily better then something has to give.

The future is the PC on the stick, but lots of kicking and screaming will go on first.

Who is the fastest-selling phone maker of ALL TIME? Samsung? Apple? No, it's Xiaomi

Alan Denman

But are they real sales ?

As we know,Apple manufacture a yearly record by counting orders from the likes of EE as sales.

This looks manufactured too, even if they happened to get into end customers hands this time.

Marketing makes for confusion.

Yours is as shite as mine = it is all downhill now !

So Apple, now caught using near enough the cheapest grade of aluminium allow known to man will obviously now not use the same cheap aluminium come September.

Great marketing really does mean that Apple turns lead into gold. It is good while it lasts and boy, they had one hell of a run with this one.

Next !

Microsoft drops Do Not Track default from Internet Explorer

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Sounds about right.

Those that set it get their rights whilst those who have IE default get ignored because no one knows if they know their rights.

The user solution was to use a different browser and set your DNT right.

If the internet world had started in a DNT world then OK but Microsoft were really turning back the clock for their own personal gain via a web livelihood peril.

Judge greenlights class-action suit accusing AMD of securities fraud

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Did it really matter ?

I think Intel simply tracked them, having a couple of releases held back in the ready if AMD market share ever showed signs of increasing.

What near fully killed AMD was in fact ARM, Intel being forced to track change track to mirror + ARM in the mobile market.

Intel really needed that minor competition from an 'AMD only' to continue.

Now we know the truth as to why...

They ain't smartmeters after all, they are fusion collectors scoop up the debris floating around Britain.

No idea, but we know they cherry pick and ignore reality, that is if they actually know what reality is.

Nothing to do with 'left thinking'.

It is bandwagon lobbyists who have something to gain by fibbing!

Totally agree

We need to make sure the UK is last to use these, and even then they might not be secure.

Roll them out as current meters reach 'end of life specification'.

Zero waste there

I would also like to say that I monitor my own usage and think those savings are a whopping lie.

There would be zero saving here with a so called smart meter, and zero savings for everyone else if they don't get educated !

Samsung AMD one sounds a bit rubbish

AMD has the xbox/playstion business but that is about it.

They would likely need to buy at a heavy discount, the only way looks down for AMD.

Gear S should be called the Gear Night Out.

It being 3G I can't see much other appeal apart from it being the watch for 'down the boozer'.

All those mega expensive watches have one thing in common though, that being exactly the same as what Apple has, 99% all marketing and perception.

Maybe they will turn 'plain ugly' into everyone's wish list.
