This product is more innovative than anything Apple has done since the iPod 15 years ago.
...which wasn't all that innovative when it came out, either.... "No wireless. Less space than a nomad. Lame." (from http://slashdot.org/story/01/1...
The funniest part about your comment is believing that airlines serve any sort of food without purchase required.
Meals and alcohol are still 'free' on most international flights... Pro-tip - Always request the Indian or Hindu meal when making your reservation (if offered). It's usually the best tasting airline food you can get, and goes well with the cheap beer/wine that's offered
Here's a previous reply I made on the same subject:
I'm a coder who stands all day
1) Make the switch the first day you get back from a longer holiday and are already out of your normal routine.
2) You *must* get a nice floor mat, preferably a dense memory foam mat designed for standing cubes. Working in your socks (if your employer will let you) while standing on said mat almost feels like a foot massage.
3) Another *must* - don't get a desk-height chair! At least, not for a while. You'll find yourself sitting way too often and never get adjusted to standing all day. Most of my fellow "standing" co-workers that have tall chairs sit at least 80% of the time.
4) It takes a couple weeks to get used to standing. Stick with it.
I like keeping my phone in my pocket rather than taking it out 50+ times per day to see if an email or text is trivial or not.
This. I didn't realize how annoying it actually was until I didn't have to do it anymore. I like my current Pebble 2 quite a bit, and am looking forward to the Pebble 3.
