My Suspicions That ‘Amazfit’ (Per Their Usual MO) Most Likely Rushed The Availability Of The New ‘T-Rex Pro’ Smartwatch Appear To Be Vindicated.

I really do despair of Amazfit. They remind me of a 4-year old kid. Just headstrong, impetuous & still immature. They just don’t seem to learn, & worse still just don’t seem to want to learn.

This is not the first time they rushed out a watch way before it was ready. They don’t seem to care. It is true that given their cheap pricing they attract a large customer base of unsophisticated, undemanding users. That is what they rely on. Most of those that NOW buy Amazfit watches are in third-world countries. They are not that fussy. Amazfit banks on that. Shoddy goods for folks that are used to shoddy goods.

Shame. The T-Rex Pro like some of Amazfit’s prior watches, in particular the Verge that promised so much, could have been amazing IF Amazfit took the time & care to test it all out prior to rushing it out.

Well, I am GLAD I have decided to stay well clear of Amazfit watches. I do NOT appreciate rubbish.

Why Google Doodle For Italian ‘Laura Bassi’ Was Published Today Is Not Immediately Obvious.

I like ‘Google Doodles‘. Always have. I find them educational & this one sure was. Though I have read a ton on the Italian Renaissance I had, alas, never come across this extraordinary lady before. So, it was good to read about her.

I am used to Google Doodle’s being published to commemorate someone’s birthday or death. So, when I first looked her up on Wikipedia (above) I could not work out why the Doodle was published today, April 17. I had to do some more reading.

Yes, I would have found it, quicker, IF I had first gone to the ‘Doodle Archive‘, but I didn’t.

I was wondering, were YOU curious?

Well, does not matter. Now you know. SMILE.
