    Can't see this one over here, so, what have you been spending your "hard earned" on? This is (or will be) the latest addition to the cottage:

    I'm sure some already are!

    Perhaps he's got the Samsung processor in his *shrug*

    It's not until you lose the desire to be an early adopter that you realise how sad an image that is! So glad I don't do 5am queuing any more!

    The What's Going on at Apple Thread

    Because if it was just a touch-hold tweak in the OS, they wouldn't be able to flog a shed load of new handsets /cynic

    Hopefully it'll be waterproof, too. Says the bloke who took his 6 for a swim yesterday
  7. I don't want to have to wear the same watch every day, so until someone designs a modular smart watch with interchangeable cases it's not a market I'll be joining any time soon, especially if they remain more of a ladies watch in size.

    Some strobist toys today:
  9. At 42mm, it already does!
  10. I wonder if vtech will sue...
  11. I'm with you MD. Looks cheap, clunky (even though it's tiny), and more like a toy than a triple figure product.
  12. I don't know who these companies get to design their smart watches, bit I'm guessing not one of them has hired anyone with any horological history on their CV. Just because it's a 'smart' watch, does that preclude it from looking like an actual watch rather than a Tamagotchi on a strap?!

    It will be interesting to see how Apple prevent you from changing the strap for any one you fancy! Mind you, 42mm? That's the ladies watch, right?

    You'll be missing it as there's a mountain in front of the molehill (working fine here too)

    What I meant was, it isn't something that will pull hordes of Samsung users to Apple. Sure, those who have an iPhone would want better battery life as one of their top 3 on the wishlist, but it won't necessarily convert in to "new" sales in the same way a new camera feature would, IMHO.

    A battery that lasts a day longer - negligible additional sales A tweak to the camera that makes your lunch look like it's 3D - they'll ship container fulls. Battery tech isn't an interest or selling point to the masses, so it's not worth spending major money on as an 'added feature'.

    Decided to update the gaming system

    A bit of an apology.

    Well I think it's bloody disgraceful personally. I come here for all the latest news and information in the tech world, and there's nothing being posted up because someone's "a bit busy"? I'll be requesting a refund of my membership fee!

    Oh I don't know. I've had a few cats over the years and they're certainly nippy little beggars when you creep up on them!

    New TV for the lounge as a stop gap until it is worth buying an UltraHD set. Found a hidden listing on Amazon knocking a further £60 off their own price, so thought why not?
