THREE TRUCKS!!!!!! (at UNBC University of Northern British Columbia)
For the record, I went with the Silver 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus. My rationale: the two things I care about most in my iPhone these days are the camera and battery life. The 6 Plus has a small edge in both categories.
But yes, it’s a big ass phone. We’ll see.
John Gruber on the fine-we’ll-call-it-iWatch-for-now:
And whatever it is, I think it will be controversial. Perhaps it will be expensive. Perhaps it will have far, far fewer features than do Android Wear devices. Perhaps it will appear under-powered at first.
But there will be something, or several somethings, that will cause it to be misunderstood by those who are only able to frame new creations in the context of what came before them. Apple’s watch won’t fit in an existing mold. It won’t be a phone on your wrist. It won’t be a watch as we know it. We already have excellent phones. We already have excellent watches. For the Apple watch to be worth creating, it must be excellent at something else.
I’ve long made it clear that I believe the “watch” moniker is misleading at best. What ever this thing is, it will be no more a watch than the iPhone is a phone. And again, that will lead people to scoff because they won’t understand.
"That is the most expensive phone in the world! And it doesn’t appeal to business customers because it doesn’t have a keyboard."
Hungry? The Alpine Burger is a huge eat. Really good patties, pretty good burger… Mushrooms were a little much for me, would probably try one of the other burgers next time.
Gum’s turn in the spotlight may be ending, however. In a report, Nicholas Fereday, executive director and senior analyst of food and consumer trends for Rabobank, has surveyed the state of the gum market and discovered some surprising data: The $4 billion gum industry has gone into freefall, with sales down 11% and volume down 20% in the past five years. No type of gum is immune—everything from sugar-free gum to bubble gum is experiencing the drop in sales. What’s going on?
Insert “Bubble” joke here. Also, this is really odd. I used to chew gum all the time. I never do anymore. Not really sure why. I just stopped. But I didn’t think everyone else did too.
