Obligatory Apple Watch and MacBook Thoughts

I watched the event with everyone else and I wasn’t going to post about it. I had nothing to say, but on the drive home something happened. I missed a text.

I didn’t hear it, or see it. When I got home I was annoyed I missed it. And I was amazed at how many calls and text messages I miss daily because I either don’t or can’t hear my phone (or feel the vibration).

It drives me nuts.

And it hit me: that’s the actual problem the Apple Watch solves for me. I’ll feel it. I’ll get my notifications. I won’t miss things I’ve deemed that I don’t want to miss. That’s worth the price of entry, any other features is just the cherry on top of it.

MacBook

My God is that a thing of beauty. I’ve written a lot about this, but I think I’ll snag one of those. I like every spec about it except the processor, but I’m honestly not sure how much that matters anymore.

My iPad Air rocks and it’s slow by comparison to my Mac. I think I need to realize that for how I use computers the processor doesn’t matter at this point. I’m thinking base model, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one. I had thought about the Air instead, but I’ve heard a few concerning things about them and I’m dissuaded from choosing that for my needs.

It’s just a gorgeous looking Mac. Through and through. The MacBook was the best part of the event for me, maybe it’s nostalgia, but I love new Mac announcements and Apple didn’t disappoint today.

Event

Overall it was a solid event from Apple. The watches were as good as expected. The MacBook was awesome. And the ResearchKit work looks spectacular.
