I miss the finger print reader.  Face unlock is a pain in the ass in the car.

I have zero issues, but I also have CarPlay.

Thanks. 

I also don't think the cheaper Watch will kill FitBit or Garmin.

I don't think you realize just how close to the edge both companies are.  FitBit is barely solvent.  Garmin is close.  "Hurting sales," at this point, is a death sentence for both.

My sainted mother turns 78 tomorrow.  I spent an hour today on the phone guiding her through the process of updating the firmware on her her AirPort (one I bought from HC's own Salty IIRC.)   After a repeated error message, having her reboot the AirPort three times and her cable modem twice, we were successful.  The updated decided it was automagically applied after appearing to fail repeatedly.  

Apple discontinued the AirPort a number of years ago at this point and didn't make a replacement.  I don't know what I'm going to do when it's time for a replacement.  I really appreciate the UI and bulletproof nature of the AirPorts.

The $199 Apple Watch won’t kill Fitbit and Harmon because there are enough people that hate Apple and/or would never buy an Apple product because they assume everything is overpriced that they will still have a market.

I’ve had every version of the Apple Watch but I think I’ll pass on this one. I still love the 4.

I backgraded (for app compatibility reasons) to macOS Sierra 10.12 this week and my 10-year old Bluetooth Apple Mouse is freezing intermittently now. I've got a newer Magic Mouse connected via Bluetooth and it doesn't have the same problem, but I hate that this seems to have been a problem for years (I did all the fixes – NVRAM and SMC reset, dumped the Bluetooth .plist, and reset the Bluetooth system, pulled external monitor and USB hub, disabled Handoff, etc.). I'm hoping that upgrading to a newer macOS version someday will fix whatever is wrong with my Mighty Mouse.

It was working perfectly on another computer running the same version of macOS last week. The MacBook's trackpad is working perfectly well, too.

I just use Logitech m325 mice on all of my Macs... cheap (none of this silly $50 for a mouse), works great, bullet proof. It does take an AA battery but they last a long time.

I gave up using wireless mice that use a dongle since it is one extra thing to carry around and lose. But Logitech, and others, make cheaper Bluetooth mice that work just fine on Macs

I might take this as an opportunity to get a sweet Razer DeathAdder Elite, then. I've been using the older DeathAdder Chroma quite happily on my home computer for a few years.

The Logitech m325 looks great too and I'm also tempted by the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S (if I can find it on sale).

I started buying Logitech K380 keyboards to replace my coworkers' broken Apple keyboards, but they discontinued all the cool colors as soon as I discovered them.
