Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

I think it seems that way because the announcements yesterday were largely hardware, but remember that watchOS 3 is also coming out, and the changes there were about improving apps generally (quicker...

Re: Am I The Only One Still Using RSS Feeds?

Once Google Reader went down, I switched over to NetVibes. I'm guessing they're largely being supplanted by Twitter nowadays.

Re: Are you supposed to walk or stand still on a moving walkway at the airport?

It's very simple: you stand on the walkway, and walk on the standway.

Re: Name an album where the title is the worst song on it

It's close, though; I've never been a fan of "Roll The Bones", but "Heresy" is a less-interesting song to me. I was going to suggest maybe A Farewell To Kings as an alternative, but I'd have to put...

Re: 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2016, D: Michael Bay)

I was going to guess George Miller, but (a) he's only 70 and (b) Mad Max: Fury Road hasn't quite caught up to Happy Feet in global box office yet.

Re: 2016 NFL Off-Season Thread

Does make the most sense, but Jerrah (and to a much lesser impact, the Texans front office) would never let it happen.

Re: Best Music of 2015

That may be why I don't list Hand.Cannot.Erase higher personally - Raven clicked hard for me right away, this one didn't grab me the same way so it probably suffered by comparison.

I don't listen...

Re: College Football 2015 Week 5

Obviously, it didn't happen yesterday, and it won't happen today. I'd really hoped he would get 3 years to get a handle on things. But this team is realistically looking at 3-9, and 2-10 is not...

Re: Icloud drive- how does it work?

I think you can only add/open files to iCloud Drive on your iPhone from apps that specifically support iCloud (similar to how they would need to specifically support Save to Dropbox or other cloud...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

No Apple Watch, but the Health app on my iPhone does allow the heart rate measurement to be shared with the Nike+ app. I have no idea what Nike+ does with the data - perhaps it can in some way use...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Not to get this into a holy war thread, but having seen it in person, I have to agree. I don't know if it just the raw size, but I've been thinking that one reason why it seems bigger is that the...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

I seem to recall one reviewer saying they found it more accurate than most smart watches, but less so than a dedicated chest monitor. I'm sure it's sufficient for most uses.

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

I was thinking that the HR Monitor would sync with the phone (as a source through the Health app), and then that data would be made available to other HealthKit-compatible apps. But I guess I don't...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

If I recall correctly, the next major release of the Watch OS is expected to allow more functionality directly on the watch itself, rather than being tied so much to the iPhone. Now the Watch doesn't...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Simple - mount the watch on the bike, and use a armband on your wrist for the phone. :)

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Yes, of course, having said all this, my answer to the original question is "no, not planning to get an Apple Watch", at least not 1st version. I'll keep jogging with my iPhone :).

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

Right, the Nike+ web site lets you draw a route on its map and store it under a name (which then presumably gets fed into their heat map data also). I was thinking there was a way to store a run from...

Re: USB 3.1 with new Type C connector

The adapters in the Apple store include a "legacy" USB port, a USB-C port and a video port (HDMI or VGA) - but not as far as I see an Ethernet port. Is there some technical reason behind this, or is...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

I wonder if the Nike+ app (or Apple's own tracker, or whatever) could possibly have jogging routes uploaded to it, and then have the watch attempt to line you up along that route based on the...

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

If I'm paying that much for Apple Watch, I'm probably paying someone else to run that marathon for me too :).
