Apple's Awesome Thread (was 9/9 Event Thread)

232 posts in this topic

I dunno, I just can't get excited about a watch. A bigger iPhone, yes. I haven't been keeping up, but I'm a little skeptical about the mind blowingness of what's to come, hope I'm wrong though.

I… am excited, and not, at the same time.

If it's a wearable, it needs to be about 10x as good as a Pebble, because I had two of those and sold them very quickly.

the real question is how many times the word "innovative" will be spoken

Without Jobs I don't have the same level of interest in these events as I did when he was at the helm.  I just finished reading "Inside Apple" and while it isn't always flattering towards Jobs, I came away from reading it with a great deal of admiration for the man.

I want to be wowed. But tempering my expectations. I remember that first iPhone event. Those were the days.

Hey, we all know that they over play the "innovation" and "ground breaking" angles. Every company does, it's rather redundant.

I.E.

"Introducing the new Iphone, a groundbreaking step in innovation. "

I haven't gotten excited for any announcements in technology, everything that comes out is already old news by the time we can buy it anyway.

Bump.

It is the box! :-P


I am not big in to technology hype like this. My biology teacher in highschool spent the night outside of best buy for the Playstation 2. There are people who sold their place in line for the new iphone (which at the time hasn't announced its release date yet) for a few grand. I don't get those type of people. I rather wait for the initial hype to wear off and read some reviews.

And typically the brand new things like that have lots of bugs/issues that you are better off waiting a bit to get fixed before get it.

Uhm, no. You're quickly venturing into hater territory, and while I'm not a "fanboy," I despise Haters. Come with some facts or a well-reasoned argument, and it's cool. Make up stuff like that and you just get ignored as a Hater.

For an iPhone 6, I don't know that "reviews" are all that important. It'll probably be what Apple says it is… and you'll be able to take the iterative improvements and apply them to the reviews of the 5S, the 5, the 4S, the 4… etc. It'll be a pretty "known quantity."

If they do a wearable, well, that's new. Millions will buy right away. I'm not that type either.

Apple actually doesn't hype things very much. Others do it for them. Sometimes they're then underwhelmed, but they build up such huge expectations, that it's their own dumb fault.

Has nothing to do with hate, I apply the same philosophy to all new things that come out. I typically wait to pick up anything to allow for the bugs and issues to be fixed. Whether it's a new model car or a new gaming station. You are assuming what I said was only meant for apple when it's not. You are seeing "hate" where there isn't any.

In general, that applies. But general isn't the topic of the thread, man. So yes, I assumed you were sticking to the topic. :)

My bad, I said "typically" instead of "in general" and left it open to interpretation.

@iacas - You prefer the 4.7 or 5.5? I don't like big phones but that two pane feature on the 5.5 looks like it could be useful and the better battery life.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
