    Nice to hear some casual and dispassionate back and forth about the newer iPhones. When my HP x3 started glitching earlier this year, I knew it was finally time to move to something else. I'm going through an iOS evaluation phase at the moment, so I decided to replace the x3 with either an 8+ or X. Ordinarily I am an early adopter, but one of the shoulder angels persuaded me that the X design might need a little more time in the oven. I finally pulled the trigger on the 8+ a little over a month ago and have been pretty happy with it. If the Xv2 or whatever they will call it looks good a few months down the road, I may get one and pass the 8+ on to a daughter or grandchild.

    I watched the Apple keynote a few days ago and was surprisingly interested by the Apple Watch segment. I had never seriously considered putting one of those on my wrist, but since my last Band 2 was barely holding together-- the shreds of the rubber wrist strap were held in place by four or five bicycle inner tube patches -- I went to the Apple Store the afternoon of the keynote and picked one up. It's not as clearly organized or easy to read as the Band 2 that I am replacing, but it's not bad enough to return. It counts calorie expenditures about 15-20 percent below the Band for the same activities, but it has the advantage of an "Other" activity that I can use for things that the Band designers never thought to include -- like yard and house work that is hardly demanding exercise but burns more calories than watching FRD episodes.

    The comment on the code name Carmel in that other thread is right on -- it has to be a reference to the California coastal city where Clint Eastwood was briefly mayor in the '80s, and the stress goes on the second syllable.

    Keep up the good work. I love the information you guys pump out and the amusing ways you do it.
