These are much nicer looking than the original Caseta. That said, I will still be going with their Radio Ra3 system in my next house. I just want scene control on the wall, and to not have to go through an app for it.

The island in the fold has a mediocre camera at best.
No under display camera is ready to take photos you’ll want to look back on yet.

This seems like a horrible deal.
$148 million for a company that’s made something that looks like a Land Rover Defender inspired (ripoff) weekend project in some guy’s shed.

Interesting. I had never heard of PWM sensitivity, so I did some research.
I can 100% see how it could be nauseating. I wonder how much of the population it actually effects, specially considering how many phones are OLED now.
I personally don’t believe I suffer from it. I think I’d get headaches watching my OLED TV (but the brightness might be turned up enough I don’t notice). Do LED light bulbs bother you?

Us iOS users are still waiting for the privilege to decide what our default map app is. Don’t go thinking too crazy.

Yes. lol. But the same argument could have been made, and was, about breaking 30 pin compatibility when they moved to lightning.
That said, it would be the perfect time for Apple to introduce a Wireless CarPlay dongle for cars that don’t already have a wireless option.

The way they’re doing the always on screen seems odd to me, specially based on the design of the lockscreen widgets.
I’d prefer just white or colored icons on black myself. They could still light up a section of the screen for the new persistent notification things.
Would also be cool to have a mode that turns the screen red like the watch for night.

I dunno, they removed the sim slot in the US this year. Wouldn’t surprise me if they just went completely portless.

I preordered one of these.
Yes, the price is a little steep, and yes, the less expensive ones do most of the same stuff. But as a larger guy, height wise (width is catching up to me), I gotta say, the chunkyness of the ultra looks badass.
That said, I do wonder if they’re going to come out with solar charging next year, and if I’ll regret the purchase / how much more that would even add.
What would people be willing to pay for the solar charging? It looks like Garmin charges an extra $100 for it, which I think I would have been wiling to pay for. But I have a feeling it would come with the apple tax, and add another $200.
