5.1 update sends Apple's Watch 4 bling spinning into an Infinite Loop of reboot cycles
I have a lot of meetings in my job and having something that notifies me of calendar events by buzzing my wrist is genuinely useful + passing through emails/messages from my VIP list so I can discreetly see if there's something I might need to find time to respond to. Also, paying for something with watch is super easy and convenient, be it a coffee, a sandwich, a pint, or the tube ride home.
But I completely get why many people wouldn't get much value out of one.

Apple’s premium TV plans – the hobby doomed to stay that way
Re: Apple TV poor in the UK
I have the latest Apple TV and I think it's terrible.
It's missing various UK TV channels, no Amazon Prime video, the remote control touch interface is a pain to use, and the Now TV app keeps crashing when trying to view the live Entertainment or Movies.
I got a Roku 3 in the end and it has all the channels I need, the apps never crash, and the remote is well built and easy to use.

London's contactless ticket payment system for sale in £15m deal
"TfL is the body responsible for London’s buses, trains, and underground, reckons its system now accounts for one in 10 of the UK’s contactless payments."
"Contactless payments used for 1bn UK purchases in 2015"
So 100 million contactless journeys a year, but 65,000 * 365 is only 24 million.

Sketch dev pulls out of Mac App Store, cites slow reviews, tech limitations
The mac app store is rubbish.
I bought an app for £1.49 from there which didn't work. I contacted Apple for a refund and they said to contact the developer - problem is the developer's link is also broken!!
I reported the broken app March 2015. Since then a number of other users have also posted app not working reviews and last month people were still getting caught out. As of today it's still there.
Where's the quality control?
I would get the odd email from places I'd shopped online and I didn't mind.
In fact sometimes there'd be something I'd decide to buy.
But f-ing Black Friday shows up and I've had two emails a day for days before and days after.
So now I've hit the unsubscribe link on all these Black Friday spammers and they've forever lost my casual custom.
