Want an Apple Watch for Half Price? Apply for a Job!

When the original Mac was introduced on January 24th, 1984, Apple offered a discounted deal just for students at certain colleges. Steve Jobs was asked how the general public could get such a deal. His one word response... "Enroll." I did, at Carnegie Mellon, one of those colleges, and bought my Mac the day I got to campus. I also applied to work at the school's computer store, and worked there for four years, becoming Apple's Student Representative on Campus!

Is the Apple Watch Kosher?

image

It's Passover, so I thought I'd ponder the question "is the Apple Watch Kosher?" Believe it or not, "Kosher" is about more than food. Elevators, lights, and other devices can be consider Kosher or not depending on several factors. The concern is that we are supposed to take the Sabbath as a day of rest... no work. And our actions cannot cause a machine to work on our behalf. That's why "Kosher" elevators stop on every floor during the Sabbath, so you can get on or off, but the machine was operating either way. You didn't touch a button, turning a light on or summoning the elevator. Some folks might keep their lights on (or off) all Sabbath.
