Or they have figured out what is best for the customer, and it is what everyone else is providing.

Personally I hope the 6C is closer to the size of the iPhone 4/5, as what is good is options. I love my big PDA (don't give a shit about phones and phablets), but I can see good reasons for others to want a smaller device.

> $600.99

Assuming a $25 contract I guess?

$600.99 or $600.99 - the cost of 2 years worth of credit - two years worth of phone usage?

Now this number will be maybe $450. Some "throwing numbers about" puts two years of credit at $85. So that is $515.99 for the phone + mobile contract. Take away the phone ($450.99) and you have a mobile contract at $32.50 a year or under $3 a month.

I'm not sure I see that as all that bad.

I come from the same camp, hire the best person for the role. Definitely.

But best is not just "technically best" but also "team fit best" and "not a dick" and "can communicate with the team" and various other little things. What this can mean is that the team unconsciously equates "best team fit" as "same as the rest of the team". The management should step in if this happens and look at ways to fixing what is a problem and reports like the one performed by Mr Apple is one quick way to measure if this is happening.

Yeap. And I want a smart watch. Or Glasses (minus the camera maybe), I've not worn a watch since the late 80s when it came with a radio built in.

As long as they don't stop selling watches when they start selling smart watches we will both be groovy. I'll have both a smart watch and you will have a watch. CauseBy may have an even smarter watch then I.

If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
