There’s already third party faceplates being made. There’s going to be a bunch of them as they’re quick to replace. A matte black or frosted acrylic one with a smaller front fin would look great.

Did they say the faster 5000 operations per second OIS was only for the Pro, or for the whole line? I thought they said it was for the whole line, but it only appears on the Pro page.

Could she not just put colored contacts in to cloak when she’s using it in public and playing the victim?

Fair enough. I mostly use mine for the fitness tracking and got hooked on closing the rings so I wear it most of the time, but yeah, the Apple Watch experience can still be buggy. Especially where you have a corp policy on your phone to require iPhone unlock to unlock your watch (disabling the passcode backup), and Read more

It’s like how some people insist the British brought architecture to India? Like damn, I haven’t known architecture to fall out of the sky and assemble itself like that then

Stuff like this is what I always wonder about. How many things were discovered in the past that were just never saved to the humanity folder long term. And are there any we still have not rediscovered?

Like, ancient humanity was doing brain surgery on cows, but pre-writing it was never recorded long term. Our brains Read more

Even at 720p the fastest CPUs can’t consistently run it at 60fps, so a CPU bound is definitely there

I feel like they tried to make it hard to run, or at least didn’t put all efforts into making it easier. The top setting is literally called “Can it run Crysis?” and they were boasting that the best hardware couldn’t max it out. Crytek has a lot of financial issues and the can it run crysis meme was honestly probably Read more

Entirely for my own selfish needs - cool, cool cool cool. Fortnite is a blunt instrument in this war I don’t care either way about, but losing Unreal Engine on apple platforms would be a huge blow.

Looks like the Versa 3 and sense also got rounded displays to go further to the edge. That’s what looked cheap about the old Versa with the big bezels.

Isn’t defining “healthiest” as lowest calorie inherently limited. I was more curious about, say, polyphenol and antioxidant activity per unit of alcohol, phytonutrient makeup, if quantity of water contained in the beverage (i.e 5% beer has a lot more water than a 40% neat drink) helps your liver, etc.

After having an Apple Watch almost exclusively on my wrist for two years, I’ve fallen back into my love for mechanical watches. I don’t think I’m confident enough to double wrist it, and since the activity tracking was my biggest appeal with it, I think I want something like this so I don’t have to use my wrist for Read more

This puts me back. I’m wondering again why Mirasol never took off, the low power of e-ink plus color powered by the reflectivity of ambient lighting. A few products like the Amazfit Bip seemed to use at least a similar technology.

If they’re removing the Force touch sensor from the Series 6, I’m not fussed about that, it’s a significant z-height in a small device where space is at a premium, and it could still be thinner to better tuck under dress shirts, yada yada. BUT, I don’t on principle like when they remove things from devices that do Read more

I’m curious what the Series 3 will be replaced with price point wise when the 6 launches. An “SE”, with a polycarbonate shell, cheaper body but up to date chip a la iPhone SE? That would be interesting. Waiting till Sept/Oct to see on my busted series 1.

“The Pro also uses the A12Z Bionic at the same processor speed, but that processor is running on eight cores, where previous developer kit benchmarks showed a processor with half the number of cores and a lower 2.4 GHz clock frequency.

I don’t think that’s definitive, Rosetta 2 apps are only run on the big cores, Read more

When my cat is watching another animal outside, she always knows which windows to go to tracking them once they’ve gone out of the view of one window. That means she must be aware of the 3D space in some sense even when the thing she’s interested in is out of view, and how their movement relates to the house.

There’s Read more

I read in other impressions that despite the same processor, the 10L has more hitches in areas it shouldn’t (i.e opening the multitasking tray, instead of running a game), was this noticed or has it been patched out?
