The big caveat here is that a lot of albums are just plain ol’ poorly mixed for Dolby Atmos, and are originally intended for stereo. So it’s not a blanket-upgrade, in the same way that stereo mixes were not a blanket upgrade in the 60s — for example, The Beatles earlier albums are famously much much better on mono… Read more
I love this review because I love seeing chunky cats being mildly inconvenienced and forced to put up with things they dont want.
I have had several cats in my life and never, not once, has any of them had the slightest interest in chasing a motorized whatsit. Whether it’s running away like a furry bolt of lightning, jumping up on something to escape, or hackles-up hissing, it’s always been some variation on “get that fucking thing the fuck away…
Pablo is a very smart boy and is fully aware that this is a hunk of plastic instead of a tasty mouse or bird, and therefore is completely uninterested.
I will hear none of this Pablo slander.
Our cats are like wood screw heads. We have a round,
I really appreciate gaining this cultural insight. I was absolutely flummoxed by the stories of Koreans tuning in to watch Son Heung-min play for Tottenham and then immediately switching off when he got subbed off, even if there was only 5-10 minutes in the game but that phenomenon makes a lot more sense now.
Oh how I can relate and how I laughed reading your ‘persistent cat smacking you awake’ comments. I had a very excited little cat, who normally waits patiently until 7am to bat me awake, prance in at 6am this morning and wonder why she got unceremoniously thrown (gently) back out of the room.

For sheer accuracy, that comment was the OnePlus Smartwatch of this thread.
I think the author offers a great balance of reviews, and seems pretty accurate on the watches that I’ve personally seen.
Are you sure that this doesn’t fall into the “so bad it’s good” category? Like certain movies.
In a watch like this, fitness tracking features are there just to fill out the feature checklist. I really can’t see anyone who’s serious about fitness wearing one of these to work out.
Question. Is this type of marketing and design for a smart watch a bit sexist? Reminds me of the early days of car ads where they tried to make cars for women and it included features they thought women would like, like purses in the headrests and more mirrors for them to apply makeup. Looking back it those ads many…
I am REALLY looking forward to a comparison between these, the bose sport open earbuds and the upcoming j-labs frames clip on headphones. I have been using plantations back beat fit headphones for years when running and cycling. Hopefully one of these 3 is able to improve on that experience.
I wish Apple would improve the rings/awards. Achievements for exercising multiple days in a row are just mindless and don’t actually help anyone. Few people exercise every single day, and I don’t even know if it’s healthy for everyone. I feel like to some degree it can encourage unhealthy behaviors that are more about… Read more
