    Oh, I get that, but I just don't want the notification. Bob's suggestion of disabling Maps notifications in iOS seems to have done the trick so far.

    They are most definitely all off under (in iOS) Watch > Notifications > Maps, but none of those settings sound relevant anyway as they only for turn alerts and stepping directions

  3. How to disable "x minutes to [address]" notifications

    Every time I get in my truck to drive to work, I get a notification on my Apple Watch telling me how many minutes it will take me to get to work. Vice versa when I go home. I disabled all Maps...

    Jake, that was totally NOT my point. I said the exact opposite. There is no ambiguity in the original sentence - it was perfectly clear, just like "The man bit the dog" is perfectly clear. If you...

    Well, Jake, I guess you can't "help" me further because I can't imagine anyone being confused about what "quickly" is modifying in "I'm going to the store to quickly buy some milk." The idea is that...

    I really don't think we can warrant reading that much into the syntax. That's what context is for. But even by itself, I highly doubt most people would think "to boldly go" meant something other...

    Hmm. Not seeing the ambiguity in that example. What other way could that be understood than "to go in a bold manner"? I don't see the distinction between the two options you have in parentheses.

    I'm very much enjoying the Series 4! I got the basic aluminum with sports band in the 44mm size - GPS only. It's amazing how much bigger the screen seems in comparison to my old 42mm Series 0!

    Exactly. English is not as consistently pronounced as written, unlike, say, German, which is almost always pronounced as written (except for imported words from other languages).

    Yes, of course there will always be exceptions. The point is to present yourself consistently with your work ethic. For example, someone might be brilliant at whatever job they're applying for, but...

    My point is if someone can't be bothered to proof-read and/or learn the basics of grammar in a professional context, that tells me they're not a detail-oriented person. I don't want someone doing...

    For me, it's more of a matter of attention to detail. If I see a plumber's work vehicle that says "Its time to calls an plummer;" on the side, my understanding is not undermined in the least, but...

  15. I guess this is my sign it's time to buy a new Apple Watch?

    I have an original (series 0) Apple Watch. Just peeled off my sun-protection arm sleeves I use when doing outdoor work, and the screen of my Apple Watch rips right off with it :o

    So who gets to decide which pronunciation is "correct," thus making the rest "perversions"? Of course, none of them are perversions; it's just as you said--language changes. It's not a good or a...

    I think pronouncing "you're" as \ y-ər \ is akin to pronouncing "what" as \ hwət \ (ditto for "why," "where," etc.). It sounds too formal for normal conversation.

    Odd PowerPoint Bug

    I'm not sure if this has always behaved this way or not, but it definitely seems like it has to be a bug and not by design. Brace yourself, it's a bit precise.

    Ok, so if I have an object with a...
