Tablets were selling and profitable before iPad?For facts about the Watch, I'd go to apple.com and not non-fanboy sites.As for iPhone is doomed:http://m.tuaw.com/2013/09/20/the-iphone-is-doomed-and-it-always-has-been/
1. Design is subjective. I trust Ive's vision.2. My iPhone is usually in my pocket. In cold weather, it's in my jacket and/or covered by my coat. It's easier to check my wrist than unzip my jacket, whip out the iphone.If I'm exercising, I rather take a glance at my watch rather than stop, take the iPhone out.3. iPods were tied to the Mac originally. In due time, Apple watch might be a stand-alone product but we shall see.4. What's wrong with the crown?
Last time I checked Walkmans at the time couldn't play mp3sDon't worry, I disabled Siri use from the lock screen. It was tough on the 4S but better with the 6 and Touch ID.Troll much? Apple makes news. If the media spends half the time it spends on Apple following other companies, they'll find much worse conditions. At least Apple is trying to do something about it.
