RE: No One Really Needs an Apple Watch Today

Hey y'all: Thanks for all the thoughtful comments. This is what makes writing for MacObserver so great -- all the different viewpoints and opinions. So thanks for taking the time to post... we appreciate it.

RE: No One Really Needs an Apple Watch Today

That's true... And I buy a lot of things I don't really need. But it's hard for me to encourage others to buy things they don't need. grin

RE: Apple Music and Why it Rocks My World

Jameskatt: I love it too (as if you couldn't tell that from my column...). I've had a little weirdness -- a few wrong versions of songs in playlists and occasional app hiccups (on iOS), but I still love it and don't regret quitting Spotify. And the family plan is a winner -- my wife and kids said so. grin

RE: 71% off Cambridge SoundWorks' OontZ Curve Ultra Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

wab95: Glad to hear it. I figured at $20 it couldn't be too bad; I'm glad to hear it's not.

RE: Just Say No Thank You (to Apple's Public Betas)

Old UNIX Guy: I didn't write it for you. I wrote it for users who don't know any better (and their number is legion). Those who know better (and it sounds like you do) are free to ignore my advice (and they know it). They're also the ones who _will_ file bug reports and not whine publicly about their issues with the betas. Finally, saying that I blew it with this column is a bit harsh... and I respectfully disagree.

ibuck: You're a smart user. I'll bet you spend very little time erasing and restoring your devices... grin

RE: What's in Your Geek Travel Bag?

Barry: My CDO isn't nearly as bad as my ADDH. grin

RE: Siri Couldn't Find The Beatles (But Now She Can)

I didn't want to jinx it by trying before the two hours had elapsed, so thanks for letting us know that it worked immediately for you, tgjenvick. Anyone else?

RE: Siri Couldn't Find The Beatles (But Now She Can)

Lee: That's what I figured. But whatever disabling/reenabling did, it worked and I'm a happy guy.

RE: Apple's New MacBook: Great for Some (But Not All)

mferrara91: I agree completely. And I hope my column made it clear the MacBook might be ideal for users who might otherwise choose a MacBook Air, but is probably not a contender for users who need the capabilities of a MacBook Pro.
