Was that the price for a 38mm or 42mm model? I still have my SS model 3. But I like my new 4 so much better. I'm an information junkie and the added information I get with the model 4 is what I like best. The Andriod ware is too big for my tastes. I did own the Sony Smart watch 2 for a year before the Apple watch was released. I liked that too but it just was so basic compared to the Apple watch.I’ve had several smart watches, never used them much other than as watches.
But. Wal Mart is running some in store clearance on the series three now for $199. So I picked one up. I’d never pay full price for these but I’m gonna try it out and see if it’s that much better than android wear.
It’s not the lte model, but I don’t need that. For the price I’ll either be satisfied enough to keep it as a watch, pleasantly surprised, or can sell it for more than I paid.
Tell her it’s the series 0 original gold watch worth thousandsOur Company's EPP discount kicked in just in time for Christmas shopping. I ended up get a 40mm Rose Gold with Sand start for my wife, so we'll see if she takes to it like she did the iPad many Christmases ago. Wish me luck!
I still haven't picked one out for me, but I've been busy upgrading the Family Room for 4K HDR...
Yet Microsoft is the one that is printing money selling Windows tablets that retail for about the same price as Macbooks through a dozen major retail outlets versus Apple peddling their wares through their own stores and Best Buy.They copied the Apple Store but not their magic.
I think that both acknowledge that the "pad" is a phase on the way to something different (and I hope more practical and orders of magnitude more flexible in terms of hardware). Apple is going at it from the giant phone end and Microsoft is trying to brain Windows down to something that will run on a pad.I’ll bet on Apple over Microsoft in the long term tablet market. MS is more laptop oriented and the Android and iOS UI is far better than the Win 10 UI.
Somehow I think that would make it worse... I'm punting to Plan B for the watch and delaying it until her birthday next month. This may be the first Christmas in years that she won't get something with a warranty!Tell her it’s the series 0 original gold watch worth thousands
Microsoft was going down and then pulled it off and have reinvented themselves. Something relatively rare in business. They are ginning money with multiple successful new profit centers.Yet Microsoft is the one that is printing money selling Windows tablets that retail for about the same price as Macbooks through a dozen major retail outlets versus Apple peddling their wares through their own stores and Best Buy.
Microsoft is trying to weasel their way back into phones by getting behind Android but they're just getting started.
Apple needs to spend more energy thinking about how they are going to maintain their shrinking market share in established markets rather than what they're not going to do.Apple is next on the list with their spaceship and believing their own marketing while others are leaving them in the dust.
As an Apple stockholder, you should know better than that.Apple doesn't need to ask for advice from people who know everything yet have never actually run a company that is as successful as Apple.
Just fine is relative.They seem to have it figured out just fine.
Tell that to the largest market in the world.Build the company for the long haul and make products that people who own them love them.
Better is in the eye of the beholder, not something that you need to constantly convince people of while you lose market share in many of these disciplines due to inability to control your supply chain and ridiculous pricing.Instead, since the iphone they have figured out it is best to build a better cell phone, better BT ear phones, better smart watches, better health wearables...
Elitist attitudes like this aren't particularly popular these days and if Apple is truly hoping to improve the world with their products, they can't restrict themselves to serving the "top" 2%.Apple isn't interested in making a cheap iphone that appeals to a poor homeless person. They want to focus on a device that appeals to people who want the best and are willing to pay for it because they can.
