Jawbone Up Return Program Offers A Great Deal
Jawbone is offering a great return program for those with malfunctioning devices.
Jawbone Up is a cool techy bracelet for iOS users who want to track their sleeping habits, fitness habits, and things of that sort. It is used to help get you in shape and annoy you when you are doing things against good habits. For some, this seemed like a really cool idea. After a while from its release, users started reporting problems with the device. Sadly, the bracelet suffered from poor battery life and syncing issues. Jawbone has ceased production of the Jawbone Up bracelet, but they have promised that they will continue to offer application updates for the current users of the bracelet.
Obviously, for a device like this, battery life is essential or else it will not be able to record your habits for use in the iOS application. If it doesn't have the ability to do that, then it's a pointless product. Jawbone will probably take this time which it has stopped in production of the Jawbone Up bracelet to try and perfect the design flaws that are leading to the syncing and battery problems. By then, we should be able to discern a really awesome product on the market that will help people get into shape using their iOS devices. The Jawbone CEO, Hosain Rahman, has been quoted as he said:

I am a user of Jambox Jawbone bluetooth speakers and i love it. Good product but pricey.

EDIT: On second reading, I see what you mean. Why jump to buy one only when this was announced? That does seem a tad shady.

You have to think beyond the obvious! Why would someone buy an UP wristband right now?! Simple, because its free and you make money if you thought far enough ahead of everyone else. I just bought the remaining 4 at my local Target after hearing this announcement. Why? 1. Because not every unit is defective. 2. I paid 89.99 + Tax and Jawbone issues a $109.43 cash refund for each unit (regardless of how many you purchased or when and you get to keep them!). So, if you wanna keep the train of thought simple, it comes down to this: I made $52.56 buying four of my friends Christmas Gifts that will most likely not be defective. Now, If you think this is stupid, rewind, read again and get your mind straight

Really? That's where we stand with education now? We don't know "seize" from "cease". GREAT! We're F'ed!

Sort of off-topic, but does anyone actually like this device? I bought one when it first came out, and was disappointed it's not as "smart" as I expected from the promotional materials; all of the syncing required sort of defeats the purpose. I returned it within two days (and bought a Jambox, which is fantastic).
Anyway, to each his own.
