Jeb Bush vs Apple Watch: "My watch can’t be talking!"

Jeb Bush vs Apple Watch:
Technology and presidents usually don't mix well. The chief reason for this is usually in the strict security clearances that often make it impossible for the highest-ranking officials to use the latest gadgets, but when it comes to presidential candidate Jeb Bush from the Republican Party, there were no such restrictions. He was just plain surprised to see what amazing things his smartwatch is capable of.

Bush, known to have an affinity for Apple products, surprisingly got a phone call on his Apple Watch in the middle of an interview and looked in confusion as a voice out of the Apple Watch was trying to talk to him. The presidential candidate could not believe what was going on, saying that it can't be the watch that's talking.

Well, one of the journalists at the event enlightened Mr. Bush that it is in fact the Apple Watch that is relaying a call, and you can watch the hilarious moment as it happened right below.

Exactly. I work in mobile IT and I have people come in my office with 6s and 6s+ often. I ask them about 3d touch or live photos and I have not had a person yet know what it was or use it lol. Some of them don't even know there's a fingerprint reader.

That can't be true. I know there are people that don't use the FP sensor because they don't care for it (like my wife), but not know about it is very very rare if there are people like that exist. Same for Forcetouch (hate the 3D Touch name) - you cannot use a 6+ without accidentally force touching the screen - it's imbedded into nearly everything on iOS. AND you are also prompted to set up FP and FT when setting up your phone the first time. I'd believe you about Live Photos - I don't care for that feature or why it's getting so much hype. I use it about once a month to add a new photo of my kids to lock screen - it's more dramatic with motion and I love it, but that's about it.

When they have someone else set up their device b/c they know nothing about phones it is possible. You made 3d touch sound even worse. You can accidentally set it off? That's terrible lol. I HATE Samsung for adding this gimmick. It's as bad as hover touch, screen on or those other terrible things from S4/S5.

Why you have a such product when you don't know the functionality!? Anyway this is Apple customers.... And this is why Apple is successful.

If Trump's watch talked to him he would've called it a terrorist and tried to make sure it was banned from the US.

I wonder how many millions Apple has "Donated" to Jeb Bush to help them avoid paying taxes.

Eh considering Bush is one of those *traditional marriage blah blah* kinda guys, something tells me Mr. Cook wouldn't donate a dime to him.

When it comes to economy, it looks like Apple is more republican than democrat. Social issues - yes you're right, though.

Tim Cook might run Apple but he still has to answer to the shareholders so his political persuasions mean diddly since Apple have shown over and over they'll do anything for money.
