I wonder if these guys who make these fake ads think they're gonna get a job in apple's advertising department as a a result

I hear the tablet is actually manufactured by Numark and will come with red racing stripes.

I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

I'm typing during a meeting to get real work done. If someone really cares what I think then I'll stop and say something. Otherwise why give full attention to the blah blah blah?

So many times there are people in meetings who are there just in case the other people need their knowledge and/or opinion on specific things on which they are experts. You want to have these people near if anything comes up for which you need their input but at the same time you don't want to waste an hour of their time, so you invite them to the meeting and let them work on their own things, and a couple of times per meeting you ask them to pay attention and answer some questions. It's the most efficient way to get the work done.

after one week with the iphone x i like it a lot. i don't miss touchid. faceid is probably slower, i think they make you swipe up to hide this fact, because it doesn't feel slower if you have to gesture. faceid has been very good, only not gotten me maybe once? screen is fantastic.

it also cost me $1250

, Friday, 17 November 2017 21:14 (two months ago) Permalink

i played with it in the store and i had a hard time swiping the upper corners when i held it one-handed. are you having issues with that or are you using it two handed?

the late great, Friday, 17 November 2017 21:28 (two months ago) Permalink

I'm instinctivly worried that having to make eye contact to unlock would be a major hassle but I can't really assess whether that is such a problem in real life

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 17 November 2017 21:36 (two months ago) Permalink

yeah there's no way i can swipe from the upper corners with one hand without reachability. i've adapted to using two

eye contact - it's not really eye contact more just like eye direction of the screen. it actually works too if i have my head tilted down parallel to screen but eyes looking at something above and in the distance it won't unlock

I sadly returned mine. I gave it the full 2 weeks, but it was immediately causing pain behind my eyes every time I looked at it. Haven't had any more pain since returning. Might go with an 8 on black friday, but may just hold onto my 6 until next year.

a little bigger, a little dimmer tbh

bought a little inductive charger buddy for my desk at work but slamming all the apps back from backup is taking a toll

plus you can’t play with the phone while it’s sitting there, so I’m cable tethered for the moment

I asked for AirPods for chanukah, not because my SE lacks a headphone jack but bc I keep losing earbuds

honestly i thought the lack of a headphone jack would shit me to tears, but i don't catch headphones cables on door knobs and tear them off my skull and fire them across the room and into walls anymore so

rove mcmanus island (Autumn Almanac), Friday, 1 December 2017 20:58 (one month ago) Permalink

xp the airpods are fantastic, apart from regular split-second dropouts that only seem to happen when they're paired to my iphone. no other bluetooth headphones do it, and the airpods don't do it when paired to my watch. assuming it's yet another ios 11 bug that will get fixed in ios 14.

I got an X at the weekend and it is a massive improvement over the 6plus. FaceID is highly functional and the gestures have become very natural, I wish there were more or more that you could cutomise - turning on reachability was pretty useful.

Apple Pay is a lot faster and more functional, particularly when I learnt you don't actually have to be looking at faceID when it's on the reader. Just Double click on the side, look and tap.

I'm also impressed that lock screen notifications say 'Notificaiotn' till you properly look at the screen.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Sunday, 10 December 2017 22:31 (one month ago) Permalink

face id is kind of slow but touchid got incrementally faster via software and near instant in the next model phone so I’m gonna day it’s already on the right track

(please do not save this and make me eat my words in a year)

mh, Sunday, 10 December 2017 22:41 (one month ago) Permalink

FaceID works mostly fine (snappier especially after turning off the attention requirement) but once in a while the phone won’t unlock no matter how long I stare at it.
How do you activate reachability with the new gesture?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Sunday, 10 December 2017 22:51 (one month ago) Permalink

reachability: turn it on in settings, pull down on the bottom of the screen instead of up

mh, Sunday, 10 December 2017 22:58 (one month ago) Permalink

It’s in the accessibility settings.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 11 December 2017 08:37 (one month ago) Permalink

aha ok thanks - weird that they buried it in the settings. I used it all the time on my 6

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Monday, 11 December 2017 11:24 (one month ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

about a month in face ID is the feature that noone wanted. appreciate the (almost) full screen, border-less design but face ID is a nuisance.

thinking that if they update the iphone SE this march as is rumored i may downgrade, but that's in the context of more broadly wanting to de-emphasize smartphones in my life

, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:17 (three weeks ago) Permalink

hm, just not working fast or what?

Spottie, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:27 (three weeks ago) Permalink

fails more often than touch ID, requires more thought as to ‘how am i gonna look at this thing til it unlocks’

, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:31 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I want there to be a new SE but I probably won't even buy it until I hit the end of the road on OS updates on the current one. Definitely trying to tune out from my smartphone as much as I can

.oO (silby), Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:32 (three weeks ago) Permalink

feel like touch id, at least on the early ones where you had a learning curve of the timing and exactly how to get your finger on there and it became near effortless in the second gen

face id is a little tougher but I’ve already caught myself responding to the feedback curve of how to hold the phone, face angle, etc so it maybe fails once every other day

having to lift your head a little when grabbing your phone from bed is rude, though

mh, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:37 (three weeks ago) Permalink

not unlocking when on the table and youre looking down at it is the biggest offender. despite my attempts to machine learn it. with touchid the biggest fail point was wet/dirty hands or gloved hands but otherwise worked great

also with touch id you could give multiple people access to a phone (ie put yourself on yr parents phone for tech support purposes) - cant do that with faceid also fear that youll mess up the machine learning by having it scan the non-primary users face too often

, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 21:42 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Lame. Wonder if they’ll add the touchiD to the back of the phone for future versions like originally rumored?
