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.

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.

How about the number of times the words "the" and "a" are said!!!???

:P

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.

    • Day 168 Just a bit of indoor putting stuff in the morning, and a few balls off the mat after dinner, focusing on posture at address. 
    • I definitely have to get in a mental ZONE to putt well, and it is a major difference.  I can feel when I am in it, but I do not have the best focus.  So it is a challenge for me to get there and stay.  I get to the course very early whenever possible. My pre-round goals include: 1. Find that putt Nirvana. 2. Stretch my back into functioning condition (I'm missing three discs). 3. Range, then pray that I hit my drives on the front nine like I do on the range. ------------------------------------------------------- I have not been practicing putting on the practice green because, well the courses do not seem to want people to.  But there are always a few folks using the practice areas.  I wonder if them pulling the flags out and then not bothering to enforce any sort of rules reflects COVID window dressing and not any sort of genuine purpose.  My putting has not been grand since quarantine, and I would like to get on that green.
    • I have been doing quite well this season but we have decided to leave our home club. Moving to a new club tomorrow and will need to do a par challenge instead since it is a tougher course. But I am pretty sure I will at least par every hole once this season!
    • Well, after all the great posts from so many of you, the time has come for me to admit that I was right all along...and so were so many of you! We moved to AZ last year in June and I began playing with a bunch of guys from ages 70-85.  Great guys who played golf by the strict rules of the game.  At first, I shot 101 and the next week it was down to 87 and the next into the lower 80's etc.  That was from early July 2019 through early September.  And then mid-October came along and my back was simply gone.  I could no longer make a full turn (or even a half-turn) away from the ball.  The MRI's saw a bulged and herniated discs as well as the expected arthritis that we all experience as we age. Since then, it's gotten worse.  Where I could formerly hit my 6 iron over 150 yards, it now goes maybe 110 yards at most.  The money I paid to play at a rather "high-end" golf club is gone (Covid19 caused both nice restaurants and Spa areas to close) and my membership will end in early fall of this year.  Both courses are still open but with limited play and closing early in the late afternoons.  Six people have been diagnosed with the Virus and yet, the course stays open because it is considered "essential" here in AZ. My cousin is a leading Epidemiologist out of Atlanta, GA and early indications say the Virus will come back with a vengeance this fall.  I hope he is wrong!  Meanwhile, I am looking into finding an electric bicycle just to get some much-needed exercise.  Just sitting and watching Netflix is seriously getting old. I hope all of you stay well and realize what a Pandemic truly is--and of course, how our bodies just don't allow us to play golf as well as our minds think we ought to play.  HA!  Stay safe out there!

    • Day 90: Still the one armed drilled. Did some fuller swings as well. Working on getting the hips open and my right elbow and wrist more bent at impact.
