    Regarding the health wearables conversation, this is an interesting analysis:

    I can't find the source, but someone predicted that Apple wouldn't make a smartwatch because the market is too small and the profit margin too small.

      Interesting post; hopefully Apple can deliver on the platform or infrastructure (which hasn't really been their strong point e.g. iCloud.)

      As far as markets go, that's true — but the tablet market was negligible when the iPad was announced too.

      Speaking of, been reading a lot of interesting analysis of the drop in iPad sales. My experience has been the same, I barely use my iPad anymore­

      If you look at CarPlay and AirPlay, it does look like Apple is creating a platform that starts with the phone, and can communicate with other dumber devices. People talk about making apps for AppleTV, but I think more likely that AirPlay gets licensed to TV manufacturers like CarPlay and possibly "HealthBook Connect" or something. Makes more sense that an app store for each kind of hardware.

    Nice to see everybody tonight! As far as the using blocks for iterating over a collection question, I found these two links.

    It seems that for simple things, the for/in or fast enumeration is a better approach. However, there are a few instances (concurrent enumeration, iterating over dictionary objects and keys, using the iteration index and the object) where it is useful.
