I thought about that and then went, screw it, life's too short and there's the resale market. My observation in tech is there's always better on the horizon.... Plus, while I sometimes wear a wristwatch for work (I handle hazardous biological and chemical items where touching anything is a no-no), this isn't a watch anymore than my iPhone is a pocket watch,  though they both can display the time.... IMHO anyway.
The part in the middle is unsupported opinion. Which you're totally entitled to: but the issue of the article was the EU v. Ireland on the Apple (and others) tax arrangements (remember?

("Sport" being a marketing choice, IMHO, and not really an application segment description, like with the Jeep Cherokee: the "Sport" model was the stripped one with the babycrap brown plastic interior....).
A quick poke showed they (Sweden) don't use the Euro, the Krona is listed as their currency, so some nuance might be involved. An EU member of some things but not others? And there are quite a few who don't. "Friday, the European Commission released the results of its latest Eurobarometer survey carried out in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and for the first time, Sweden. As in the past, the survey did not cover Denmark and the UK, which...
