That's a shame...I enjoy my Pebble. Battery life goes for days, and I can check who is calling/emailing/texting without pulling the phone out. It also works as a great phone finder, and has a decent alarm. I hope Fitbit doesn't kill the brand.
Next time type slower...
The US Navy are pirates? Can't wait for the new whites and blues to be issues with eye patches...
Traditional IT roles are not being automated out of existence. For one, any company providing a "cloud" need server guys, network guys, hardware techs, and so on. Two, many small/midsize businesses don't have the cash flow to support what cloud providers are charging and prefer to keep infrastructure as a capital expense. Over the decades I've noticed that IT changes, but never goes away.
Weren't we warned about landing on Europa?
I realize that most Slashdotters are probably not sports junkies...but where did people think all this new TV revenue coming into professional and college sports was coming from? Sports is really what is driving the rising prices. Once sports leagues make realtime streaming deals, the days of traditional cable/satellite TV are numbered.
It is noticeable as well. For last few months, I've found that I watch far more Hulu and Amazon than Netflix. Why? I don't care for the original content they are focusing on it. I just want to binge watch old TV series I like, or rewatch older movies. Netflix has been dropping those consistently, while Hulu and amazon are picking up the contracts Netflix drops. Same with kids shows...my kids have been steadily losing their shows on Netflix, and have started watching Hulu as well. If this keeps up, I will probably drop my subscription soon.
Meanwhile, Pebble looks to be doing just fine with their smartwatches. However, they use color e-ink (better battery life), are much cheaper, and don't need a new line of service activated. They connect to the internet via Bluetooth on your phone. Perhaps the other manufacturers should strip their watches down and focus on what consumers would want: a durable watch, with battery life past a day or two, and doesn't cost extra with phone service.
I'm sure the users were just holding it wrong...
V'ger is pleased with the Creator and would like them to run more missions to the larger planets.
Anyone else suddenly wondering what type of music Woz listens to?
But seriously, the choices of front-running candidates is pretty much like selecting between Hitler or Stalin.
You forgot Stein and Johnson. More like Hitler/Stalin with third party tickets of Pol Pot and Hussein.
Do you mean "he" or "she"?
Will you all take us back? I'd rather have Queen Elizabeth at this point...
