    Apple recently announced an app called Breathe for their Apple Watch. The 2 minute video below will explain all the reasons Apple think we will approve of any crap they throw our way!

    See, mindfulness is useful, but I refuse to have a digital reminder everyday!

    I take time to breathe and calm down, but I refuse to use a digital thing to tell me to Anxiety, people.

    Plus, I hate being strapped to gadgets. I have my 3DS on me every day, but that's different!

    Totally agree! That being said I carry my phone with me everyday, not my 3DS XL. :)

    I'm not pleased with the alleged redesign of the upcoming Macbook Pro. Why would they think it's good idea to put the butterfly keyboard on a prosumer machine, and where's the SD card reader?

    If it turns out to be real the current one that I'm using will be the first and the last Mac I'll ever buy (not counting hackintosh), I'd rather have a laptop that's slightly thicker and heavier if it means better battery life and less thermal throttling or fan noise, instead of a ultra-thin one with a uncomfortable keyboard and limited connectivity.

    What if you use an Apple device you didn't pay for? What about jailbroken users? Not denying Android is better, but not all Apple users are crap.

    Yeah, I doubt I'd pay $600 for a locked down phone without emulators, customization, or piracy out of the box.

    Welp, nothing beats an jailbroken iPad 2 (and upwards) in terms of usability tbqh. It beats the living shit outta every Android tablet I've owned/used in the last 5 years.

    feels like everyone here thinks they're the target audience for an application called "Breathe", not those with health issues or whatever...

    (hint: no you're not)

    I wanna try using a Mac because I've only ever tried using Linux and Windows, I don't see how that makes me stupid.

    It doesn't make you stupid at all. It makes you a jack of all trades as you are extending your horizon with new experiences and information. If anyone tells you that your stupid for it then they ought to do a reality check. Thanks for watching the video and commenting on the forum!

    Oh crap. I did not know they were going to be bringing their crappy butterfly keyboard on to their MacBook Pro line! I despised that keyboard. There is so little tactile feedback that it almost feels like you are typing on an iPad. Well if anyone wants the current range of Retina MBP's then looks like you will have to make your purchase now before this becomes the industry standard on Mac laptops.

    Do people still stand out in line for 72 hours before the new iPhone is released?

    My sister has an iPhone and a Mac Book, I used her Mac Book a bit while over her house, and was not pleased with it. I guess I'm too used to windows. I still haven't figured out why I cannot transfer Cia Angel to her Micro SD card with her Mac Book. It just corrupts the file, and FBI or the other Cia installing programs cannot install it. Also, I felt like a dip shit for having to Google "How to right click with a Mac Book"! :P

    My homeroom teacher in grade 7 had a Mac in her classroom, and everyone barely used it because the mouse was literally just a huge left-click button.

    Yeah, Mac's do give you different configuration options. All you have to do is go into System Preferences, Trackpad, Secondary Click, that will bring up a drop down menu and then you can change how the trackpad picks up a right click.

    If you use an Apple device, no. If you are an Apple fanboy who's soul purpose in life is to defend everything Apple do including all their bad and insulting decisions then yes they.
