I’ll get a second mortgage on my house and buy two!
This is actually only for professional coffee drinkers, not amateurs. So there you go… Completely justified price.
Can I buy just the $999 part?
Dandelionion , unfortunately you can’t as it’ll only fir onto Apple approved mugs
I like the older 666 version
but you still need the iCoaster ($79) and iCoffee ($39 for 16oz) made in the iFrenchpress ($2999) if you really want to use this mug properly
and I glue for 200$
Also, we forgot: to connect the handle to the cup, there’s not simply a socket or a notch built into the cup. Instead you need a “dongle” to attach the handle to the cup. The “dongle” will be easy to lose; in fact, 98% of all purchasers will misplace the dongle within 1 month of receiving it. Replacement dongles only cost $199.99.
A real pro will just use that one handle forever and attach it to newer models of mug as they are available. Makes perfect sense.
Just wait for the apple mug 2 for the prices to go down. Then again, who knows if they intentionally made it so the ceramics would crack itself over time.
And it only holds Apple-branded proprietary coffee.
When does it go on sale? I want to get my spot in line in front of the store early!
Anonymous: sure, you might think that, but Apple Mug 3 is going to incorporate a whole new connection standard. Not only will you no longer be able to use your old handle (unless you want to buy a $30 adapter that makes the whole thing too bulky and awkward to be practical), but all the hundreds of 3rd party variant handles and accessories won’t fit either.
Then they’ll do it again on the Apple Mug 6.
Exclusively on GOOP
My journey with Apple: “IPod, IPhone, IPad, IMac, IPoor!” Now I can add, “IMugged!”
I hope it doesn’t come with AirDrop preinstalled!!!
My Samsmug was only $1199 and it came with better coffee and a handle attached
And this is a mug for right-handed people only.
AppleCare+ on the iMug doesn’t cover spill damage.
@Laurent: The left hand version is available but costs $999 extra due to extra design, tooling and production costs.
It is the most powerful mug they’ve ever made. And if they hold true to form the iMug 6 will be 50x as powerful.
And let us not forget it was built with the environment in mind and is completely recyclable: • Arsenic-free • Mercury-free • BFR-free • PVC-free • Beryllium-free
You can also spend ONLY an extra 328$ for a warranty that doesn’t cover much and expires the moment the next mug model is invented
I’m happy with my flip-mug, not ready to upgrade to a SmartMug
Also, you can track any part of the i mug with itrack so that you don’t misplace it. By the way this app costs only $99 per month. Keep it updated always
Slowly holds less coffee until iMug2 released. Only holds coffee at the exact prescribed temperature, otherwise the warranty is void.
They wanted to call it the I-cup but then someone asked, “How do you spell that?”
and you can drink only aple approved coffee with this mug
Can I jailbreak this to accept tea?
I’m reading this ad. When can expect my bill for $300 to arrive? I need to budget for ad reading. Oh! I think reading comments is an extra $50 and posting is another $50? I have to remember to budget for the extras!
I’ll drop the additional $250 for the optional black turtleneck cozy. 😀
I’m sure the connection will not fit anymore as it was with every new Firewire Cable:–(( Apple can you hear me, can you stop to change the connections with every generation, or it was my last APPLE damn!!!!!!
