Welcome to IWETHEY!

New further impression
It’s true what the reviewers have said about the M1’s power consumption: the thing sips juice. After six hours on and off of putting it through its paces, the battery level is at 94%. The predecessor MBP would have gone tits-up well before noon.

New That's impressive!
But, give Apple some time and they'll screw that up for at least a while.

My Apple Watch, series 4, would have roughly 75% battery charge when I took it off at night and put it on the magnetic charger. Then the Watch IOS got updated to version 7.0 and the battery charge state went to 10% at the same time of day. Fortunately, after a while, they upgraded the IOS again and things went back to normal.

Apple really sucks when it comes to proper testing before an IOS upgrade is released. They are now working at low testing standards like Microsoft.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New the Night Watch

We used to say the same thing about Volkswagen, back before people started saying much worse things about them. The purchaser of a Beetle was the product tester.

The spousette was having a similar problem with power drain on her Series 2. We unpaired/paired anew (an irritating and time-consuming process), which appears to have fixed it. My Series 3 claimed it didn’t have the capacity for the last system update, and here again I did the unpair thing, which apparently removed a lot of invisible cruft.

I was perfectly happy with my old Timex, but the A-Watch was a gift from SWMBO a couple of years ago. I’ve come to rely on, or at least appreciate many of its functions, including the activity tracker, but I wish the thing would just give me the numbers and not try to be a goddamn life coach: “You crushed it yesterday, Rand! What’s in store today?” And of course, I’ve “closed my rings” for five hundred consecutive days and change, and dread the eventual day when, inevitably, I break the sequence. “You loser!” the watch will snarl. “You weak, contemptible loser! I don’t know why I even bother tracking you.”

New Thanks. THIS is succinctly why..
I've eschewd-in-advance ANY Talking /Listening-24/7 (and spreading-around the data) to $$$-mongers worldwide (without Paying Me, even)
Including WiFi--no networks here--though if a friend's laptop is handy ..maybe indulge some coffee-house WiFi just for shits & giggles.

Life is too short for tears. I recommend flatulence. It appeals to more senses.
