Yeah, Right, Apple. This is what becomes of your technology. Sure it is.
Look, if people really use this stupid toy to encourage them to stop being disgusting, lazy couch potatoes and actually get off their overfed asses and do things, great. More power to them. I don't need to have every bit of exercise I partake in to be monitored and graphed and compared and listed and stored but if that's what it takes, fine. (Full disclosure- I DO wear a Garmin and I DO keep track of my day hikes, and it DOES encourage me to push on a little longer, walk a little faster, etc. So I totally get it.)
But don't tell me that more than one-tenth of one percent of people who own these things actually use them in this way. Don't tell me that when 99.9 percent of your other commercials show people slouched in chairs watching, texting and gabbing away while burning fewer calories than most coma patients. Don't EVEN try. Because I KNOW iPhone users, and NONE of them are using their phones to do anything more strenouos than finding the nearest McDonalds. Sorry.
Oh, and "Chicken Fat?" Really? Hey Apple, want to make a contribution toward winning the war against obesity? Stop making it possible to run our lives by scrolling a finger along a screen. That would be a good start. Not this BS.
