RT @radtoria: You never really know a person until you hear them try to solve their mother’s computer problems over the phone.
Okay, time to place my bets.
Sport: $349/$369 (38/42mm)
Steel: From $500 to $900
Edition around $4000 unless they introduce gold bracelets
The most useful “size class” in iOS storyboards would be “screen is wider than tall” and vice versa, but of course that’s not an option.
RT @tapbot_paul: Can you people live Tweeting from the event tag stuff with #spoiler?
RT @boucher: The gigantic iPhone strapped to your arm kind of ruins the whole point of having the watch.
Evidently it’s true you’ll place your most used apps on the outer borders of the home screen. Awkward, but I’ve got no better suggestion.
Seriously, any doubt I might still have had as to buying the Watch evaporated when they announced a completely unjustifiable $50 difference.
Honestly expected Apple to reveal some new functionality to justify the Watch. More and more certain Jobs would never have greenlighted it.
RT @johnaugust: People who drop $10K for ᴡᴀᴛᴄʜ will also bitch about paying $1.99 for an app that runs on it.
RT @stroughtonsmith: Most egregious is the new non-deletable homescreen icon for the Apple Watch app: prime advertising space on every iOS device. Dirty trick 😂
RT @BenedictEvans: The luxury goods industry has long used $10k products to sell $500 products. That’s a halo that Samsung will never be able to follow.
RT @charlesarthur: Apple Watch can store 2GB of music (and play it to Bluetooth headphone), 75 MB of photos; 8 GB storage total.

Obligatory visit to the Apple Store: the new trackpad must be filled with magic and fairies. Clicking feels 100% real.
Functionally, however: I hope click-vs.-force-click is off by default, because it’s gonna confuse A LOT of users.
I need to set up Notifyr again on my iPhone to see if push-notifications-over-Bluetooth has become moreliable in iOS 8.2.
RT @dannysullivan: Tech progress is amazing. Twitter means we live with typos. Instagram makes square photos normal. Meerkat means vertical video is a thing.
I can never decide whether “swipe left” means left-to-right or right-to-left — yet I have no hesitation with “swipe up.” Only me?
Those videos look like magic tricks.
RT @BenedictEvans: PSA: Apple added flyover for Venice
RT @SkylerFoxy: A group of wolves is called a pack.
A group of crows is called a murder.
A group of developers is called a merge conflict.
It looks a lot like someone got a preview of Periscope and described it to a developer who then decided to create Meerkat, doesn’t it? No wonder Twitter cut off their access to the social graph.
Presque deux ans après avoir emménagé, je peux vous donner un pro-tip: si le wifi marche mal, mettez un câble à la place.
That app is a lot more important to my workflow than Fantastical 2.
People are gonna line up on April 10 to be the first to touch a Watch and go home without one. Apple fandom is becoming a caricature of itself.
