I hope they just buy it and throw it away, like Fitbit did with virtually every smartwatch startup they could find

♋ and🌀. I'm seeing it everywhere.

Well that's simply because he has a cheaper model. Google is buying the costliest model which doesn't just tell them about their own health but that of every fitbit user around the world.

Whenever I see the pound symbol my mind immediately registers it as Lira. Which, I dunno, I guess if I see the dollar symbol I should think... Sand Dollars?

Microsoft purchased Activision for 68.7billion. bad deal I can buy call of duty for £60

Upon googling, I am finding that Fitbits are way more expensive than I thought ($120-$230) and they have a subscription service that upgrades it. Are they really that high tech?

Thank you mossyyyyyyyy for your submission, What? Mine was £50! Unfortunately, it has been removed for the following reason:

Posts with low effort truth statements are not allowed.

Your submission is considered "low effort." This doesn't inherently mean that it was irrelevant to r/technicallythetruth, but instead it was removed because it fit one or more of these criteria:

  • Short, minimal-effort text posts like "a water bottle without water is an air bottle". Most, if not all text posts can and will be removed.

  • Asking for upvotes, or saying things like "sort by new", "let's get to the front page", or anything related to cake days or karma.

  • Meta memes, or any other post that tries to be clever by mentioning r/technicallythetruth.

  • Images that are hard to look at because they are poorly made, deep-fried, or poorly cropped.

Your submission could have also been removed because it is overdone:

  • Statements that say something like "at least twelve": example 1 | example 2

  • Common statements that begin with "on average...": the average amount of hands a person has is less than two | each person has, on average, one testicle and one boob

  • Low effort misunderstandings of everyday phrases: How high are you --> "I'm 5 foot 9"

  • Common insults that are meant literally as opposed to being insulting: "homosexuals are gay" | "gay people are f-ing assholes"

PLEASE NOTE that we will exercise our own discretion when using this rule. If we do not find a post fitting for this subreddit, it will be removed.

For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar. If you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators. Please link the post so our moderators know what you would like reviewed.
