Apple’s New Products Still the Subject of Chat and Text

The watch.
The watch won’t be available until after Christmas.
Wall Street mourns.
But it remains to be seen whether Apple’s new smartwatch will be the new must-have accessory.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says the list of its features is “a mile long.” Customers can change faces on the watch and customize it in many ways.
It knows the difference between a touch and a tap and works with Siri so you can ask movie times, for example. It serves as a locket for photos, and you can zoom in. It can display maps and give directions.

It will work with iPhone5 and 6.
But all this snooty smartness comes at a salty $349.

The new iPhones.
The Mac press is calling the problem: Bendgate.
It seems the problem is (as Apple acknowledged in September) that the skinny, skinny, skinny iphone when placed in equally skinny jeans, bends.  It bends because thin metal bends when pressure is applied.
Fashion here defeats function.
However, Apple in September said they had a total  of nine complaints of bending phones, a phenomenon first reported by the Website MacRumors.
So far the only solution seems to be loosen those pants or lose weight.
At any rate, the iPhone 6 has more than a million pixels and measures 4.7 inches. The iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen with more than 2 million pixels. It makes a huge difference in picture display and video.
The iPhone 6 starts at $199 for 16 gigabytes or $299 for 64 KGB. The 6 Plus start at $299. The 5c phone is still available and it’s now free. The 5s costs $99.

BrydgeAir Keyboard.
iPad Air 1 & 2 owners looking for an easy way to turn their tablet into a MacBook-style, lap-friendly portable computer need look no further than the new backlit BrydgeAir keyboard. A well-built, well-designed accessory for just $169.
