RE: How I Feel About My Apple Watch After a Week

RonMacGuy. I believe I misunderstood you. You meant worn conventionally, but on the inside of the wrist, right? Sure, It takes my pulse fine there. I thought you meant with the watch face on the skin.

webjprgm: 1) Charging every other day seems the norm for Dave Hamilton and me. 2) One can also tap the face gently to see the time. This is what I do most often. It's not a bother.

RE: How I Feel About My Apple Watch After a Week

KittyKatta: I think you're asking a lot for the Apple Watch. Given its size and battery capacity, the issue in my mind is an elegant and limited subset of things that most people would need on the wrist. In time, that set of features will grow, but I think Apple made good decisions in this first version.

RE: How I Feel About My Apple Watch After a Week

RonMacGuy. I don't think you'll have much luck with the watch face down. Pulse measurement can be skipped, but the Apple Watch will believe that it's been removed (no pulse detected), and it'll pester you for a passcode each time you peek at it.

geoduck: Your iPhone 5c *will* work with Apple Watch and Apple Pay. See the chart at the bottom of this page. http://www.apple.com/apple-pay/ But not yet in Canada, sorry to say.

RE: New 4K Blu-ray Players Will Kickstart 4K TV

jhorvatic: Maybe I misunderstood you, but the existence of a 4K capable chip in an Apple TV and Blu-ray licensing fees are two different issues. The A8 chip in the iPhone 6 can already do 4K video. Would be easy to implement in Apple TV. http://www.engadget.com/2014/11/21/exclusive-the-iphone-6s-a8-chip-can-play-4k-video/

RE: Why We Need a New iPhone Every Year, Not so Much With iPad

CudaBoy, JohnGl I have a Nexus 10, loaned out to a friend, but maybe coming back. I like it a lot. Android has some pleasing design, UI, elements. I always enjoy using it since 4.4 and especially now at 5.1. As for Apple, regular readers know that I am routinely tough on Apple when they deserve it. And that's fairly often.

...holding iTunes 12 source code and feeds it to a woodchipper.
I'll second that motion.

RE: OS X Yosemite: How to Find Non-Apple Extensions Lingering in Your Mac

Graham: I found this: http://osxdaily.com/2010/03/19/anti-piracy-message-in-mac-os-x-kernel-extension/ viewfinder: I compared /Library/Extensions on the factory fresh MacBook to my Mac Pro which has a lot of legacy stuff. The contents were identical. That tells me it's used pretty much just by Apple and nothing much happens there.
