Now that might actually work out, so long as you've got extremely strict guidelines governing how it works and when it should kick into effect. It doesn't take much for an adaptive interface to completely fall apart just because a few cross-device apps don't play by the rules.
Chicago (Windows 95) was built from DOS.
Are you stoned? A single UI for all isn't going to work. It's been tried again and again, and failed miserably each time. Why? Diferent formfactors do different things. What works on a tablet doesn't work on a PC or a Console. Case in point: Windows 8/WP8/Xbox Dashboard. It's a relatively consistent experience from device to device, the problem is the mode of usage has changed. There's your hangup right there.
But they could always take bitcoin, paypal dead-drops, or many other forms of e-payment.
This isn't Pwn2Own. You do not get the car if you manage to hack into it.
Yeah... Disabling notifications from those apps means I never get notified, even when I want or need to be. And putting it on vibrate results in the phone reverberating upon whatever surface I happen to have the phone on, resulting an even greater annoyance as the phone skitters along the table/desk/shelf under it's own mis-guided motive power. Both options don't work as easily as the Nabu would.
I probably wouldn't get a fully featured smartwatch, but the Nabu Smartband from Razer is about as close as I'd personally get. Mostly for the annoyance factor my phone tends to garner when it's constantly going off with Hangouts, GroupMe, Twitter, Facebook, Skype, and many other applications that cause my phone to make noise. With the smartband, the annoyance is isolated to just myself and the vibrating band on my wrist, allowing me to permanently turn down the notification volume.

If you've got a lethal or debilitating pathogen lurking around in your blood, you should be discriminated against with respect to donating blood. That's why I propose that all donors should be tested, no matter what their sexual orientation is. You're right, testing is easy and cheap now. So do it to everyone and certify the clean donors.
Agreed. The only reason they were ever banned from donating is the fear of disease. A fear that's bigoted and unfounded. Just force all blood donors to get tested for infection, regardless of orientation, then give the clean ones a certfification with expiry. Re-test as required to continue donating.
Yeah, but remember that you've got to pony up just over a grand before you can even use Mac OS.
And who said you had to use the binaries that are provided? If you've got access to the source and happen to be paranoid as hell, compile it yourself.
One would hope that any company relying on cloud services would also be smart enough to use either A) encrypted storage like Dropbox or B) pre-encrypt their sensitive and confidential information before putting it into the cloud. All said and done, more companies need to read Mitnick's 'Art of Deception' anyway.
Consoles are using AMD because the parts are cheap, not because the performance/watt is fantastic. AMD hasn't been able to produce a CPU with amazing performance, decent thermals, and high power efficiency for years now. Why do you think gaming PCs and nearly all laptops use Intel? Because Intel offers all three with ease.
Intel is going to have something on the market that runs more efficiently and with better performance. Try as they might, AMD just can't seem to get their act together for producing a decently performing product since the Athlon II.
