    Has Anyone Purchased A HomePod?

    I love mine...but have the gripes everyone else has. Alexa and Google are WAY above Siri. The biggest downside is Siri. However, for our use, it controls what smart home things we have. Selling my Alexa stuff. The speaker is just superior...and I've always wanted a good speaker apart from my...

    How does the Apple Store handle warranty repair on Apple Watch?

    They ship it out...every time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Show us your Apple Watch

    I got the 42mm BSB and a Leather Loop. However I just got a set of adapters from China today and will be going with a steel band. The Leather Loop is going back to Apple. It's nice, but it does make some noise and it doesn't look all that different from the black sport band from a distance. Up...

    Apple Watch - Scratch Already!

    While scratches will bother me...this will be the first Apple product that I will not protect with anything. I'd put a protector on the Sport with the glass, but with sapphire and stainless, I'm gonna go "naked." Watches wear like...watches. The glass should be golden...and the case will scratch...

    Starting to have fun waiting, sort of.

    I don't know that "fun" is the right word...but I do enjoy reading others' experiences with their watches. Helps me look forward to my experience even more!

    Will you put a screen protector on your Apple Watch?

    Well...now that I have my Sport 42 Space Grey...I am leaning toward not putting a protector on. It doesn't cover the entire screen (curved glass) and would look funky. I'll give it a week, but I am probably not at this point.

    Did anyone buy Apple Care for their Apple Watch?

    Yup. Good peace of mind. Sport 42mm Space Grey

    Will you put a screen protector on your Apple Watch?

    That's true! I'll at least have it on until after I see some "tests." Scratches on tech REALLY bug me. It's all I can see.

    Will you put a screen protector on your Apple Watch?

    If I would've gotten the stainless steel and, thus, a sapphire crystal on the watch...then I would not put a screen protector on it. However, seeing I got the Sport and I have no idea how that Ion-X glass will hold up, I got a screen protector. I've scratched phones in the past and it sounds...

    Will you put a screen protector on your Apple Watch?

    I'm getting the Sport...so I'm getting one.

    Pricing Speculation

    I'm with you... I like what I see with the Apple Watch, but not THAT much. I think something people aren't thinking about is having to charge it EVERY DAY. If it purports to be a fitness tracker too, then it should track sleep too. That won't happen if it has to be charged every night. I tried...

    Are you going to upgrade from the iPad Air?

    I typically go two years on my iPad, every year on iPhone (one of our contracts are up every year). However, the reduced sell value is tempting me to sell/upgrade this time. Don't thing the iPad Air 2 is a great upgrade...but...hmm...

    Are you going to upgrade from the iPad Air?

    I'm torn...wondering what many if you are going to do. If I sell my iPad Air right now (64 GB wifi), I can get about $400 for it on Craigslist. If I wait a year...I'm looking at $300 or less. I don't see a need to upgrade to the iPad Air 2, but the margin of resale will be less next year...

    Anyone buy Apple leather, silicone case for iPhone 6?

    The game day case won it for the 9ers today...just saying'... :)

    Anyone buy Apple leather, silicone case for iPhone 6?

    I don't. The glass is too hard to go away from after you've used it. Feels like the device's glass. I'm not too keen on the cutouts, but I've had that in the past with Zagg's "case-friendly" options...so I suppose I'm used to it. I hear, though, that a company called "iLoome" is coming out with...
