Any sort of thing that blocks or restricts ads always seems to suck in some other way. They really want you to see those ads.

I dutifully skip them as soon as I am able.

Also, are tablets actually good? I've never quite understood why they exist. It's just a big cellphone screen that you can touch stuff on, right?
I was gifted my first one then understood after using it why they exist. Unless you have one of those XL plus plus sized phones in your pocket they're really good to chill in bed with (versus overheating a laptop fan by putting it on your bed).

Also good if you spend any amount of time in a library, way easier/more compact to carry than a laptop.

Smart watches are beyond me. Never saw the point of them. I've got a Garmin watch to track my runs and even that'll show me an incoming text or call.

People I know that have had Apple watches have all had screen issues or the screen falling out...so they're not even well made.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
But 50 million of them, not so healthy.
Just ask Mr Jobs.
