  • Okay I believe that this is actually getting really ridiculous with these apple watch posts. I mean if you don't have/want it and don't want to read them you have to scroll through endless amounts of bullshit. If you're going to do this many then just make a separate section on the site for it.
  • Next up... How to eat, chew gum, and wear an apple watch.
  • I'm not sure everyone knows, for example, that you can ask Siri to compare stocks. There's lots of great functionality that takes a little while to discover.
  • Scrolling's... hard? Sent from the iMore App
  • It's not hard, but it's annoying when you want to read other news and you have to go through like 3 pages almost full of watch articles.
  • Relax!!! Thumb hurt? I can't imagine the amount of complaining when a real problem happens. Gotta be crazy train at your house. Sent from the iMore App
  • yeah man my thumb hurts so bad from sticking it in your wife. She can't take much more because she said you're endowed like a mouse.
  • LMAO at thinking that bothers an adult!!! Sent from the iMore App
  • Hopefully the driver will get the ticket thrown out and this kind of law won't happen in the U.S. Sent from the iMore App
  • "You can ask for stocks in any city, for either the same day or the coming week." What???? Sent from the iMore App
  • This is ridiculous at this point and it's almost posted as spiteful. Did we ever see a post for iPhone on how use the built in calculator? Or how to open the notes app? It is becoming a waste of time to sift though the crap mountains on this site. How hard would it be to make a separate area for the 972 watch articals/reposts from user manual?
