Apple’s New Nike Watch Will Harass You Into Running

1 post in this topic

07-nike-watches-apple.w710.h473.2x.jpg

At today’s live Apple event, the fruit unveiled the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2, and the Apple Watch Nike+.

The watch — which comes in two sizes, 38 mm ($369) and 42mm ($399) —features built-in GPS tracking, a perforated sport band for ventilation, Nike+ Run Club app integration, and exclusive Siri commands for starting a run. Plus, push(y) notifications:

The Nike+ Run Club app offers daily motivation through smart run reminders, challenges from friends and even alerts informing when the weather is right to get outside. Training data, including pace, distance and heart rate are available at a glance, and through shared run summaries, the app promotes friendly competition, even allowing users to send fist bumps to each other right from the wrist.

One prompt in particular asks, “Are we running today?” No, Apple Watch,WE are not running. I am running; you are merely along for the ride, capturing all of my personal data, which you will use to expertly nag me at a later date.

      The unlikely pair makes more sense than you think.
      When buying an Apple Watch, customers have just a couple of choices for bands. There are, of course, in-house options from Apple, high-end bands from Hérmes, and sporty picks from Nike. The latest added to that triumvirate is a bit surprising: shoe brand Toms.
      Yes, the OG one-for-one company is getting into the watch band business, and worked with Apple to create a pair of bands that each come in multiple colors, for people looking to bring a bit of granola flair to their techy wrists.
      Toms is still finding a way to give back through the bands, but not via a straight one-for-one model. Instead, for every Toms for Apple Watch band purchased, households in need will be given one year of solar light. In total, Toms hopes to provide 10,000 years of solar light.


      The cause is unquestionably great, but Toms getting into this space does inspire a couple queries. When the watch first launched, Apple pushed the product hard to fashion consumers. It had a 12-page spread in Vogue, was on the cover of Vogue China, and special editions were gifted to people like Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld.
      That direction has cooled a bit. In September, our sister site The Verge wrote that “Apple’s luxury watch dream is over.” Sales are also down; according to CNN, they’ve dropped 55% since the early 2015 launch, despite the fact that Apple released a new, cheaper version. Given all that, it makes sense that now they’re working with a brand like Toms. Prices are relatively low — just $49 and $75 — for each band.
      The new relationship is mutually beneficial: Apple has something new to offer its customers that’ll appeal to a more casual crowd, and Toms gets to benefit from the tech giant’s authority and fanbase. “We’re excited to reach Apple’s wide audience and their loyal fans,” Toms founder Blake Mycoskie said over email.

      I am asking because I do not like the conditions of employment that I have read about for the production workers in China who make the iPhone at Foxconn.

      This morning I got strange dialog box on my iPhone 6 Plus.  It said: "Passcode Requirement: You must change your iPhone unlock passcode within 34 minutes."

      The combination of the ambiguity of the message and the countdown timer was alarming.
      Why did I need to change my passcode?
      Why did I have to do so within a few short minutes?
      I hit "Later" twice over the next 34 minutes and nothing happened. Evidently it is just a bug related to cookies on a website I have previously visited and it is not malware.
      Apple couldn't tell me more.

    • Queen Esther, I thought of another scripture that goes well with the one in Psalms, that was: (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the most important thing, so acquire wisdom, And with all you acquire, acquire understanding. That was the theme scripture that was used when the "Aid to Bible Understanding"  was released.........oh dear! That WAS a long time ago..........its almost as if it was yesterday!
       
    • "...........at times, some of these finds do clearly back up Bible accounts." Further on that point it is of interest what the publication, "The Bible - God's Word or Mans" had to say on archaeology:........ "The New Encyclopædia Britannica answers: “Archaeological criticism has tended to substantiate the reliability of the typical historical details of even the oldest periods [of Bible history] and to discount the theory that the Pentateuchal accounts [the historical records in the earliest books of the Bible] are merely the reflection of a much later period.”........ A couple of paragraphs later, the following appears:........... "Archaeology is a much more solidly based field of study than higher criticism. Archaeologists, by digging among the remains of past civilizations, have in many ways increased our understanding of the way things were in ancient times. Hence, it is not surprising that the archaeological record repeatedly harmonizes with what we read in the Bible. Sometimes, archaeology has even vindicated the Bible against its critics.".......... The same publication, later had this to say:......... "This illustrates the fact that archaeologists often differ among themselves. It is not, then, surprising that some disagree with the Bible while others agree with it. Nevertheless, some scholars are coming to respect the historicity of the Bible in general, if not in every detail."........... ...........of course that is why we must rely on God's Word for our faith and hope for the future.


       
    • Μεταξύ πιστών της Ορθόδοξης Εκκλησίας και Μαρτύρων του Ιεχωβά   Παρόντες και οι ιερείς μας π. Ιωάννης και π. Δημήτριος Αμπελάς         Όπως μας ενημέρωσε ο πρόεδρος της Κοινότητας Ερμιόνης Χρήστος Δαγκλής που ήταν εκεί, από την περασμένη Πέμπτη είχε ειδοποιήσει τους Μάρτυρες του Ιεχωβά  (χρόνια τώρα βρίσκονται στο χώρο της Λαϊκής αγοράς κάθε Πέμπτη και μοιράζουν τα φυλλάδια τους σε όσους συμπολίτες μας το ζητήσουν) να μην έρθουν πάλι στο χώρο, διότι δέχεται πολλά παράπονα από συμπολίτες μας,  για το λόγο ότι θίγεται η Ορθόδοξη  Χριστιανική τους πίστη.  Παρά ταύτα, οι εν λόγω συμπολίτες μας δεν συμμορφώθηκαν με τις συστάσεις του προέδρου και σήμερα ήταν εδώ.   Ως συνέπεια αυτής της άρνησης, συγκεντρώθηκαν εδώ,  κάποιοι συμπολίτες μας που θιγόταν το χριστιανικό τους αίσθημα, με άσχημες διαθέσεις όπως έδειχναν, να τους εκτοπίσουν βίαια. Ακούστηκαν φράσεις που δεν συνάδουν με πολιτισμένους ανθρώπους πόσο μάλλον καλούς χριστιανούς, όπως «φευγάτε γιατί θα σας πετάξουμε στη θάλασσα» - «έχετε βγάλει άδεια που στεκόσαστε εδώ στο χώρο της Λαϊκής αγοράς» και άλλα πολλά ανήκουστα… 

      Όμως, αυτό που εξαγρίωσε πολύ τον γηραιό Μάρτυρα του Ιεχωβά ήταν, όταν τους αποκάλεσαν "Αμερικάνους"... Και πολύ θυμωμένος τους απαντά: "Εμένα αποκαλείτε - Αμερικάνο - που έχω πολεμήσει στον Γράμμο  και στο Βίτσι" ...
           
      Οι Μάρτυρες του Ιεχωβά προκειμένου να αποφευχθούν τα χειρότερα αποχώρισαν, ωστόσο o ΠαπαΓιάννης Αμπελάς που σήμερα είχε έρθει πιο οργανωμένος  με ειδικό stand παρέμεινε στο χώρο, να μοιράζει  τα φυλλάδια της δικής μας Εκκλησίας,  όπως κάνει πολύ καιρό τώρα,  κάθε Πέμπτη.   Ένας εκ των Μαρτύρων (νέος καλοντυμένος και ευπαρουσίαστος) θα μας πει φεύγοντας με νόημα: «γελάει καλύτερα, όποιος γελάει τελευταίος»….   Εμείς για όλα αυτά έχουμε να παραθέσουμε τη ρήση του Αρχαίου Έλληνα φιλοσόφου Σωκράτη που είναι η εξής: «Δεν μπορούμε να είμαστε βέβαιοι για τη δική μας αλήθεια, πριν τη φέρουμε αντιμέτωπη με την αλήθεια των άλλων»…  Αυτή η ρήση θεωρούμε,  πως ισχύει και για τις δύο πλευρές…    Φωτο – ρεπορτάζ  ΣΤΑΜ. ΔΑΜ. Θλιβερό επεισόδιο στην Λαϊκή αγορά Ερμιόνης…
