Re: Apple Watch, Sony Xperia Z3 And Other Hot Summer Gadgets
One thing's for sure; it feels like summer already. It's hot as anything here in New England! Feels like just yesterday I couldn't leave my house due to a mountain of snow. I do associate summer with new gadgets; maybe it dates back to taking my Game Boy on family trips. I doubt I'll be making any big purchases this year, but this was an enjoyable read. I was surprised to see you didn't include prices, but it's nothing a Google search can't take care of. Funnily enough, although you mentioned the Phantom 3 would be a 'crazy' purchase due to it's price at $1250, the 12-inch Retina Macbook is actually more expensive ($1300-$1500, depending where you look). Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
The IO Hawk, too (which looks like it's only available for pre-order?), clocks in at about $1500. No thanks on all three counts (though I am sufficiently amazed that I can watch 720p streaming video from a drone on my smartphone). If I had fifteen hundred bucks to blow, I'd go for the Weber Grill, the Surface Pro 3 (or maybe just a nice normal laptop), and something else on this list... or just save couple to spend on grilling meats, craft beer, and suntan oil. I do cringe every time one of my friends puts their smartphone down on a table to try and play music, though. Maybe I'll need to an invest in a Bluetooth speaker. Happy summer, everyone! Remember to be careful with fireworks... IT people can't get jobs without our hands.
