I'm more concerned about the time wasted waiting for a DVD or Blu-ray player to boot up, then check for updates, and determine whether or not the licence is valid, then not allow me to press the eject button until it confirms that there's no disc in it...
These sorts of things worked just fine before they became infected with Java.
don't be so harsh, you know there are some quality goods out of china,
but out the back door of the same factory are all the below/failed spec "same same, we only change name" versions of the identical product.
(they can do quality, just that their pass yields are still not good.)
Not in my experience.
The Garmin forerunner 310xt for instance, it is a very precise device. I've extensively tested it (my running companion since 2012). The Garmin fenix 5 (far more expensive than the forerunner) might be a cool smartwatch but is a completely failure for thge runner. The distance mesurment error of 5% I experienced (meaning about 2 km in marathon) is inacceptable.
Of course the GPS is ON (and 'ready') while I am running. The tracks are actually fairly accurate, but the distance measurment is poor.
The batteries performace is within the specifications as far as I can say (I didn't focus my attention on such an aspect, yet).
I agree with you here. I've notice a number of old school mechanical devices that are poorly designed. For example, they've put in some new paper towel dispensers in the bathrooms and kitchens at work. On the dispenser it says 'pull down slowly with both hands'. Yeah, that's not going to work. Every person I see using the dispensers just grabs the paper with one had and pulls down fairly quickly. Half the time, the paper gets jammed or tears off inside the dispenser. So now you have to resort to the dial on the side of the dispenser to get the paper to a place where you can reach it. Kind of like they only let the designer test the dispenser.
