Battery? Your Vintage watches have a BATTERY? Whats wrong with a nice 23 Jewel Automatic?
That can't be. The leading lights of this forum assured us it will NEVER sell. And that nobody will wear a watch anymore.
I'm still indifferent, and we own six Macs. First is a Fools game. If I ever get one, I'll wait six months and get one cheap off Craigslist or a pawnshop. I still don't see the draw, but apparently I'm in the minority.
The idiots are the people running beta releases. I PAY Apple for their devices, they do NOT play me for beta testing.
Wow, I got thumbed down for liking it. That's a first. If I had hated it, they would have had to hire contract killers.
Too bad, with Linux it might be fun. Seems the American market does not get this machine.
They are getting so desperate, they are looking at an election in a couple of years, and most of their top criticisms are based on Fox News fantasies. they NEED a scandal desperately. Their polls are not great, they are NOT carrying the new youth vote at all, and they won't have the benefit they had last time of a large number of seats in VERY gerrymandered districts.
They will dig and dig and dig. A scandal will be made of something because after six years of dragging the US economy to a stop and crying about Obama, finger pointing and scandal mongering is all they can do.
So far their campaign for 2016 is a platform of "stop the gays" and no matter how you feel about that subject, its not a presidential platform for people who want to win.
The sweaty unattractive nerds are the ones attacking feminism, not defending it. They can't get laid and its all the fault of women who have the nerve to think they are people! Heavy sarcasm ----->Not like the REAL women in Grand Theft Auto.
I replace my Macbook Pro every three years. Thanks to car payments this time it will be five years. Nice thing about owning a Macbook Pro, not only will it still be working, but someone will STILL want to buy it.
Most Apple watches will cost about as much as a decent iPod. All this is is clickbait. Personally, right now I'm wearing a very nice 1974 Seiko. Next year I'll still be wearing a real watch, How hard is it to fish your phone out of your pocket/purse?
Enough with the $17,000 watch. How many of those are there again? Less than ten? The way the tech press spins this, you would think that is what an Apple watch actually costs.
I use both and they really are NOT looking similar. Are you sure you are not thinking of Apple's abandoned child, Launchpad? I don't know anybody who uses that silly thing. And cheapass watch? One thing you can be certain of is it will have superb build quality, and no I'm not getting one. Have you seen some of the terrible cheap Android watches? Or are they only cheap when Its Apple?
IOS for Mac is NOT coming. It just isn't. That has been the scream of trolls since the first iPhone. Mac sales would drop to nothing. It would be idiotic.
Microsoft are the people who can't seem to tell a desktop from a tablet, not Apple.
II wanted this much Troll I'd play Warcraft.
For free I will give it a try, I already use Apple's and Google's assistant.
Ok, Microsoft, impress me.
It wasn't just text, it was text and graphical. I'm always sorry I never quite got to finish it.
Impressive, Instead of skinning Android to look iPhone like, Something DIFFERENT!
They should have done something like this ages ago.
Third degree burns on her thighs and genitals.SKIN grafts. Stop protecting McDonalds. They were super heating the coffee so it would stay hot for carry out. It was going out boiling.
10 thumbs down, really? Look at this. contains a photo. Look at these burns and tell me again.
She had ten thousand dollars in medical bills. McDonald's offered her $800
This was from that Hot Coffee. Don't look if if you have a weak stomach. How hot does it have to be to do this?
The Woman with the McDonald's coffee had third degree burns on her thighs and genitals, she had to have multiple skin grafts. That is not "sue Happy" that was justice. Google it, photos of the skin grafts are online........
I"m an Apple fan, lots of Apple gear, but I own about two dozen, mechanical, and electro-mechanical (non Quartz) wrist watches, from thirty to one hundred years of age, I just can't see retiring them to wear a tinier screen for my iPhone on my wrist. Maybe I'm old fashioned, I don't know, but I can get any number of beautiful, classic watches for $350+ that will certainly outlive me, and could easily go on for a century. And one that will be obsolete in 3 years just does not cut it in comparison.
Microsoft patch breaks application. In further news, water still wet.
Insert obligatory American beer joke here.
In America a good lawyer gets you rich for life on that. In China you get promoted.
I can finally finish it, and I can finish it on my Mac! Happy day.
It measures iOS to Android ownership on the REGISTER nothing else. And the user base here is very much NOT the general public.
iOS is popular with people who want it to just work, and don't want to have to run an antivirus on their PHONE!
I've seen people go to Android from iOS, They get talked into it by salesmen, then they come back. iOS has better user retention. Android is fine for geeks. ts like Linux, its nice if you know how to use it, and you can maintain it. But people like their phones the way they like their TVs, turn it on and USE it. My Last Android device had to have its boot-loader unlocked and be rootkitted to give me that non "walled garden" experience It is supposed to be so famous far.
The only Mac to Windows Switchers I've ever seen who went back to Windows were the ones Buying Macbook Pros to run XP on. :) I ca't blame them I hated Windows too.
Apple's low end is always last year's phone.
In other words, eat Widows you proles! Secure devices only and that means Windows! Our Microsoft rep said so!
Yeah, Windows, the Secure, safe operating system! REALLY! No one else need apply! Seriously, does anybody have a company issued device they don't HATE? With rare exemption they are Dell fleet junk, or at best, a bulky, dull, and heavy, (But at least reliable) Lenovo.
More iOS users are willing to actually PAY for apps. In so many app reviews on the Google play store, the PAID version gets slammed for having more features than the free one, because Ghod forbid they have to sped a dollar on an app. Developers are apparently supposed to be paid in "satisfaction"
Modern phones have hotspots. My iPhone is a an LTE Hotspot. How do you not know this? I didn't buy a data equipped iPad because my phone already has one. Why buy two accounts?
A sane and sensible resolution? How did that happen?
I am a Mac user and multiple Mac owner. I was loving Linux, and planned on replacing my Macbook Pro with a Lenovo when Gnome 3 came along and pretty much Killed Linux for me. Canonical's newfound love of lock down left me cold. Linux wants to give me the amazing workspace customization I had in the early 2000's I'll change my mind. I'll head right back to Linux when Unity is buried in the same pit with Metro.
'However, what may be pining for the fjords in future is traditional open desktop hardware. If the mass consumer and office drone market is satisfied by "converged devices", then eventually, there simply won't be any traditional "desktop" hardware on the market to buy, except perhaps at eye watering specialist prices'
With the blessing of content providers, with all of our media licensed, monitored, and in the cloud so the swell folks in marketing call tell us once and for all what we like this year.
I've seen the movie, its horrible and silly. If NK hadn't gotten its panties in a bunch, it would have blown over in a few weeks.
NK sees everything released in the US as being released by the US government. .Because in NK, EVERYTHING is released by the government. They don't understand this silly film has nothing to do with The US government or its foreign policy. Its weak sophomoric humor for stoners. No more, no less.
Seriously? Benchmark one of these $50 tablets up against a top end Samsung or Apple tablet. If you want a bad screen, a plastic case and a cheap and dated "or mystery" processor, by all means buy one from Tesco/Walmart (insert your local junk store here) Be ready for no support, an antique version of Android, and quite often not even access to the Google play store. MY Android Tablet plays Portal. I'm betting yours does not. You get what you pay for.
What is it about the misers here who will ignore CPU and build quality just to pat themselves on the back for avoiding a brand name?
Perhaps its who you date/marry? My girlfriend has a computer sciences degree, and needs no help from me to pick computers.
We call those bicyclists the little pants patrol. They think that riding a bicycle makes them morally superior, and that its the way EVERYBODY should get around. They think they will always be 25 and in good health. And that everybody should live in inner city hipster flats.
My city has built them the second best bike trails in the US. Including cross city greenways, and parallel bicycle roadways. Do you think they RIDE on them? No, the law says they have a RIGHT to a full lane of road, and thy won't have it any other way. There is a little monument near my apartment to a man who git killed on his bicycle on the street. Literally four feet away from a bicycle only ROAD.
These people are a nasty, pretentious menace to the road.
I have three iPods. A 160 thick, and a 160 thin, the one I use the most though is a 2004 black and red U2 model. I replaced the battery, and dumped the 20 Gig hard drive for a 64 Gig compact flash. I want to load the seventh Gen with 256 of flash as well. I like classic iPods, and as long as I can get the battery, I will NEVER stop using them.
I saw that. I sold my iPad and bought an Android tablet. It runs emulators just fine. I'm tired of being force fed junk app versions of classic games, usually with LOTS of in App purchases.
But When Samsung was copying wholesale it was merely coincidence.
It comes in a Droid version as well, read the article, don't just look at the pictures.
I will never understand these fools, and my house is full of Apple stuff. I like the iPhone, I really do, but I'll get my next iPhone by registered mail, next year when my contract for this one runs out. Just like the last one.
Android or Apple, its a PHONE. Some people are just stupid. If you have time to wait in front of a store for days or weeks, you have worse issues than the need for a new phone.
What are you talking about? Of course iTunes lets you store your music library on your computer!
People go on about the glories of the cloud. Cloud music is great if you are in your teens and only want the flavor of the day, but if you have even reasonably eclectic tastes, a lot of what you listen to is just NOT there. It is not about convenience for us, it is about making sure every track out there is licensed, and accounted for. And if you would rather listen to Klaus Nomi than Niki Minaj, well as far as they are concerned you are simply out of luck.
I own three iPods, two 160's, and the one I use the most, a Gen 4 U2 iPod I converted to flash. Its very easy to open a dead or dying iPod, upgrade the battery, and convert to flash. My 20 gig is now a 64 gig, (soon to be 128 gig) and when I do the 160 Classics I plan on making them into 256 gigs. There is a lot to be said for a player than can hold all my important music, and 11 years of my favorite show.
My biggest fear is one day plugging them into iTunes and being told they are no longer supported.
It does not matter what it looks like. No matter WHAT it looks like the screaming Android trolltards here will piss and whine about it.
They were ready to hang it before the first screenshot. So why bother arguing with them?
Arguing with trolls is wasted effort. And it only took me 20 years of the internet, and ten of BBSes (and an extra four or WoW somewhere in between) before that to figure it out. I guess I'm a slow learner.
A Cheeseburger is 99¢ and a salad is $6.99 to $10 and they wonder why we are all fat.
@Mendling Coming after Steve Ballmer with a chainsaw. Does it really NEED a reason?
Its lost on me. If I didn't have an iPad Mini I'd get another Nexus 7 for just a little bit more. Really, if they were going to make an iPad mini competitor why make it LESS good then the already nice Nexus 7?
