Get off the contracts! Contracts are the devil! Go to T-Mobile! Tongue

64 GB iPhone 6+:
AT&T - $399
T-Mobile - $849

So not signing a 2-year contract to get the device subsidized, when I've used all my previous devices for three years, will cost me an extra $450 dollars?  I think I'll pass.  Tongue

I did all the math and depending on your plan, you can save a few dollars with T-Mobile over 2 years with a slightly worse plan to AT&T/Verizon's 2gb data plan. Or you can get a slight better plan and pay a bit more over the same period (like $80 over the time period). T-Mobile would easily be worth it for the cheaper Android phones, but it's not for the more expensive phones.

I am all for not being on contract, but since there are 2 types of cell technologies in the US, you are still very much locked into certain companies. I would love just to buy a phone and switch providers as I wanted to, but that just isn't feasible.

Bullwinkle, you probably have multiple contacts in iCloud, which causes problems and you need to fix that first (also can be a problem if you sync with your Mac, but that's a quicker fix). Also make sure you aren't syncing with your Gmail contracts and Apple contacts, there could be repeats. That was my problem so, I stopped syncing with Google.

I am looking to get off Verizon and looked at T-Mobile. Without a contract and comparable plan to Verizon, I would save little to no money for a 64gb iPhone 6 on a similar plan. Sure I am contract free, but so what? If I want to switch carriers, I will probably have to get a new phone. Since I know Verizon works well every where I go, I will probably just stick with them. I would love to get away from them, but the competition isn't cheaper or has weaker networks.

Fair enough, but the users still have to take some responsibility for better security. Phishing, weak passwords and easily figured out security questions were also how it was done. And as I said earlier, it wasn't just iCloud according to what I have read, and having seen the pictures myself (yes I am scum) a good portion of the selfie were not iPhones. Doesn't mean they weren't later uploaded to iCloud, but it's a bit silly that Apple is the only ones taking heat on this.

Here's a really good read from a "watch guy" (as opposed to a gadget/electronics guy I guess):

http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/hodinkee-apple-watch-review



Thanks for posting, it was a good read along with a bunch of good pictures of it. One of the ex-Macworld female writers (who was laid off today as Macworld goes under), loved that it was the first smart watch that felt good on her wrist. I love the Moto 360 myself, but she said a 360 was much too big for her wrists, and the other Android watches are even bigger. if I was an Android user, I would probably have jumped at the 360 and then regretted it after reading the horrible reviews.

One thing about bands, they could turn into a huge 3rd party accessory market if the watch does catch on. Don't like the Apple bands, or they are too expensive? I bet you will have tons of options.

Personally, I don't feel I have any security problems with Android. I've never been affected.

That wasn't an iCloud flaw, but the way the system works and people not being serious about security. Plus, although the press singled out Apple, there was a mix of service that were hacked through brute force, phishing, etc. The average user really needs to take security much more seriously than they do. I turned on two factor for everything, my security questions are not normal answers, separate email account for important accounts like banking, etc.

I don't think security is a huge risk on Android by any means, but there are definitely shady apps out there because their isn't a QA system like Apple has (though some haven't gotten through in the past). It's also almost impossible to install questionable software on iOS as compared to Android.

I am most looking forward to Apple Pay, but that is also my biggest concern, security. It's going to under heavy attack for hacking I bet. Of course regular credit cards already are, so it can't be much worse.

I left Apple after the 3GS so I'm biased but I'm pretty underwhelmed. The new iPhones' screen resolutions have a lower ppi than all of the new Androids (including the Nexus 5 which came out a year ago), they still use only 1GB of RAM and they still have that ridiculous 16GB base option. Seriously, how many years has it been since 16GB was the base? At least the screen is larger.

I don't believe we know the amount of RAM in the 6 do we? They have announced it yet, and a supposed benchmark is the only thing that points to 1GB.

Still for me, having used/owned Android and iOS, its much more than about specs. My current i devices look great, even if they aren't as cutting edge as some of the high end Android devices. Performance on my i devices is amazing. My Surface 3 feels like a hotplate with fans running at full speed to play Hearthstone on it. My iPad Air, gets a little warm running it with much better performance. And as Ecologic said, iOS apps are miles ahead of Android. Since iOS users are more likely to spend money on apps, it has resulted in a much better experience. Plus we don't have all the security risks of Android.

Nothing can make me go back to putting a watch on my wrist.  Nothing!!!!!  I've been unshackled for too long.  I can't go back.  I *won't* go back.

I wear one everyday, don't leave home without one, but I am odd that way. I have zero fashion sense, but I love watches. I almost can't see myself wearing the Apple Watch because I like my normal watches.

One thing people are failing to take into account, is that this is Apple. I have always got the sense that this is an PC/Android type of group of people here on GT, so maybe people here don't see the draw towards Apple products. But this thing will sell with the devotees, and Apple will continue to improve and make the thing better, just like the iPhone and iPad. The Apple community already seems to be very impressed with it, especially the people who played with it at the event (although the software was in a demo mode). Plus it comes with support of third party app makers, that will support it by finding more uses for it.

Also everyone wants to compare it to a regular watch. Think of as a competitor for the sports tracking devices from watches to Fitbits. If it can do that, plus extend it's uses to outside of fitness at the same time while looking decent, there could be a substantial market. Sure it can't replace my GPS watch by itself, yet, but it very well could eventually.

They both look like you're wearing a toy watch on your wrist. We need to know more about the Apple watch. They didn't even say what the battery life is like. That tells me it needs a lot more time in the oven. Doesn't look like it can take a standard strap either. That's one reason why I didn't buy the Pebble Steel.

Nope, it's not a standard strap, it has it's own straps, many of them, which you can change without jewelers tools unlike the Android watches (and much nicer than the Android equivalents). Why is this a problem? I own a lot of watches, and most of them I would never swap bands, it would look silly. Battery life they said you need to charge it nightly, not a good sign, and that does worry me, but I am not a heavy user. People complain about the iPhone 5's battery not lasting all day. Mine does, easily. I am looking forward to hearing more, but the press people who were there and got to play with it seemed to like it, but they are Apple fan boys.
Obviously I'm not the target audience but people who are into watches often like to use different watch straps. It's really the only part of a watch you can customize or individualize. A good watch design won't look silly if you change the strap for something else. It should look better!

The band is part of the decision when you buy a watch, not something you swap out (which you can't easily do). People don't buy high end watches and change the band out. If you spend money on a watch it either has a metal band you can't change, or a high end leather band that you wouldn't want to swap out. People change the band on cheap watches when they break, they don't swap bands on high end watches (at least not normal people). The Apple Watch is a cheap watch, but they pretty much covered all the possible bands from metal to rubber. If you want a fancy fashion piece, this isn't the watch for you. And again, the bands are miles ahead of the Android watches.
You've obviously never visited the Watchuseek forums. smile

No, I haven't, but taking a look around, those guys aren't buying expensive new watches and swapping bands either. Fair enough though, point taken.

You should definitely save your gold for Arena.  I get 2-3 runs a week just from dailies and each run nets me 2 decks on average plus some additional dust or gold.

With the exception of Gelbin and the Naxx cards, all of my epics have been rewards from arena.

Ha, I suck at arena. Six is my best run, but usually I win 2-3.

Very disappointing. This is Apple. It was supposed to revolutionize watches. People have been talking about it since the iPhone came about. This thing is no better than a Samsung Gear.

Seeing the Gear is pretty much panned as a horrible, oversized piece of junk, and this watch tries to do more, albeit not a lot more, I think you are nuts. In looks alone it blows the Gear away. Saw some pictures of the 38mm on a woman's wrist, it looks great, not oversized at all. The Gear can't say that. The Gear looks clunky and cheap even on a man's wrist.

It's still early and hard to say for sure, but to write it off as nothing better than a Gear is an insult to Apple. :-P In looks alone, it is far better.
54  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Apple Watch on: September 09, 2014, 11:45:31 PM
I don't disagree with YK either, but I do see how notification on a watch could be useful. In my old job I spent a good portion of my time in meetings, where I would never have dreamed of taking out my phone to check it. I can see the watch being useful for that, or while driving, especially when I am always going to have my phone with me anyway.

I see the advantages of it as being a sports watch and a pay system. I pay with my iPhone every time I go to Starbucks, which I find very handy. If Applepay becomes an accepted pay system, and secure (which I am worried about) I would love to be able to pay with a flick of my wrist. When working out I strap my phone to my arm and just let it go because interacting with it is too much of a hassle while riding/running/walking. I would love a watch I could use for notifications, phone control, or just to monitor my workout if I am not carrying my phone (I am not sure it works that way though). Also navigation without having to take out my phone? Sounds good to me.

I consider myself a fairly casual player and my epics are:

Vancleef
King Krush
Jaraxxus
Baron Rivendare
Loatheb
Feugen
Stalagg
Cairne Blood Hoof (Gold)
Gelbin (Gold)
Hogger
Maexxna
Gruul (Gold)
KelíThuzad
Ragnaros (Gold)

I've spent a grand total of $5 on the game. (Mostly to get Gelbin)

Interesting, I have already determined that I am far behind everyone else in legendaries (at least by talk here and what I see in game). I almost never play arena though, and I have spent $42 on the game (16 decks and Naxx). I can't imagine getting a gold legendary.

I came in not expecting to be interested.

I got interested.

Then they announced the price ($349) AND it requires an iPhone.

I got a less interested.

I am curious to your thought process on that. Android watches all require a phone, so requiring a phone was expected (and not sure all features do require it, fitness stuff for instance, but not sure). We knew the watch would be more expensive than the Android versions, and it is, just like the phones. Not outrageously more expensive either.

Not sure if I will preorder, but it looks good. I already wear a Fitbit, so this would be a cool replacement. Price point doesn't seem bad. Biggest fear is that because it's a 1st gen, we will see a huge upgrade in a year. Applepay with the watch could be awesome, and the fitness stuff looks good. Also like the idea of navigation on my watch.

I have no real knowledge of the smart watch space, this was my introduction.  I was not aware that other smart watches also require a phone nearby. In general that makes them a bit less attractive to me. I already have an iPhone, so that's not really an issue, but this basically makes the watch a phone accessory, not really a standalone product. As for price, it costs as much as the phone itself, yet relies on the phone for a lot of functionality.

As I said, I thought the functionality and design were very nice, I just don't know if I need it in my life at that price. I've got a while to read about it and see what other info comes out before release.

Fair enough. I follow the watch and phone reviews quite closely, so maybe I shouldn't assume everyone else does as well. But yes, all the Android watches all require a phone and so far have all been very lacking on features (read the reviews, they are pretty bad). Basically they are all just a way to get messages on your wrist. The Watch isn't much better in that regard, but as I said above it does offer some cool things that might be neat.

For price, its about half the cost of a phone since the carriers subsidize phone costs with a contract. It is expensive for what is basically a toy, but I am an Apple fanboy, and I love tech toys.

Rank doesnít mean much when it resets monthly.  My Priest deck is about 1/3 golds and I usually only play until my daily challenges run out.

But you get a boost to your ranking when it resets. I would think anyone who is halfway decent at the game (so everyone besides me) would start out each month at a fairly decent level. Surely the legendary ranks don't get reset to level 20 (I was 15 last season, got reset to 21 I think it was)? To have all gold, especially legendaries (that he played 3 or 4 of against me), means you have to play a lot. Or at least spend a lot of money, doesn't it? I mean every card was golden, even the cards like Se'jin Shieldmasta (which I read is the most common card played so the golden version is hardest to get).
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: September 09, 2014, 09:06:38 PM
Not sure what the deal is, but the ranked games are getting harder and harder for me. I have a couple of decks (mage, druid, and shaman) that I have always been able to rely on to at least to get 17 if not higher with. This month? It was difficult to get to 19. Really struggling against a lot of classes. If I am battling a Warlock, I pretty much know I am going to lose. Rogue  and druids are a tough fight I probably won't win. Warriors seemed to have gotten a lot better lately. Don't see a lot of priests, mage or hunters anymore.

Had a weird level 20 fight the the other day. Guy had all golden cards, the legendaries and everything else were all gold. Yet he was only rank 20. Name was something like XXDarkstormx. Could you really get all gold cards and either suck at ranked play (he slaughtered me), or never have played ranked until now? Either that or he spent thousands on cards I guess.

I wouldn't go so far as to say they've "lost it" (the songwriting is still very solid)...more that they've gone in a direction I would have preferred they didn't.  Most of what made me love Opeth was the creative interplay between brutal death metal and stunningly beautiful melodies.  It made for a very unique combination and was always an fun listen.  This dynamic is lost with the move to all prog, which makes it far less interesting, IMHO.

That said, I've listened to this new one a couple times.  It's actually pretty good...much better than "Heritage", anyways.

Maybe "lost it" is a bit too strong, because I still do like Opeth, and Storm Corrosion for that matter, but I think Mikael Akerfeldt is mellowing out a bit too much. The melodies mixed with the death metal, as you mentioned, were what made Opeth interesting, and that seems to be gone for now. I believe Akerfeldt has said he wants to get back to something heavier eventually, but that's not enough for me, I hope he goes back to something like the original sound, not just heavier. For instance with Bloodbath he does harder stuff, but it is no where near as interesting as Opeth's classic stuff.

Anyway, listening to Pale Communion now, it's ok. Hopefully I just need a few listens to it. Still, they haven't gone into Metallica's direction yet, where I won't even give their new stuff a chance. It's just now there is Old-Opeth and New-Opeth.

Motorsport Manager is pretty good so far. Not overly complicated, but pretty addicting so far. Kind of like the Kariosoft (sp?) racing game but it has a much more adult feel to it. Interface is pretty good, but I would like a bit more info on screen at times. Unfortunately you can't turn off the repetitive music without turn off the sound effects (and once in game I can't even figure out how to get back to the main menu).

$5 and no IAP. Seems worth it so far.

Edit: 5 stars on Pocket Tactics. Worth a read if you are on the fence.

Was actually pretty easy with my priest control deck.  He got me down to 12 health when he was in his early mode but when he switched to mind control mode I wiped the floor with him.  I made it back up to 30 health by the end of the match.  I had a much harder time with the Dragon boss.

It's very interesting his different people comment on different bosses being difficult or not. I beat the dragon boss with my paladin control deck on the second try. Finally beat the final with a hunter, I did not enjoy that match up. Now I have to do it with a paladin? Ugh, I just want to be done with it. From what I read you can do it by buffing up slimes but I am not having any success with it.

The believe extras are included with newer iTunes movies. I used to buy DVD for the extras, but then I realized I never watch them unless it's a movie I love so much I can't get enough of it.

No idea on how to beat the last Naxx boss on normal. Saw a post to play a normal zoo, which I can see winning if you got really lucky on draws. I ended up running out of card and being too low on health to use my hero power, while he was still able to spam minions. Priest seems the best way to slow things down, but I can't seem to stop the mass build up of units again. Every other class I tried seems helpless. What did you use to beat him?

I bought it because they have more major releases this year than any other year I'm aware of, and the fact that Hearthstone is like crack, and it knew it would be a money press for the the moment  it as released on iPad.  People spent thousands on candy crush for goodness sake...

You're nuts! Anything gaming related I won't touch. I guess you can make money short term, but long term these companies seem to fall. One failed game launch and they take a major hit.

I can't believe people bought into KING, how could everyone not know it was a fad that would fail?

They're not particularly "metal" any more, but Opeth's new album is streaming in its entirety here

Thanks for the link, will give it a listen tomorrow. I don't expect much, loved Opeth but they have lost it. I am all for branching out, but they went a bit too far for my tastes. Still, I am sure I will end up buying it.

I am all iTunes at this point. I was doing BluRay for my all time favorites like 2001, but since I haven't even turned my PS3 on in months, I don't touch my DVD/BluRay collection. Everything I buy is triple backed up (on and off site), so losing stuff isn't an issue.

Since ripping DVDs is so easy, and free, on OS X, I keep meaning to start ripping my collection and putting them on my NAS. I just don't feel like buying a CD player for my Macs.

Thanks for the response Destructor. There was a death in the family so I kind of dropped this, and everything else.

I am still not sure what is going on. They went to a Sprint store and complained and they replaced the 2 LGs with iPhones so even if there is issues still they can use iMessage, which should work when communicating with other types of phones too once iOS 8 comes out.
