 That depends on what you think should be the main function of a smartwatch. If you want a smartwatch to be essentially a smartphone on a wrist, then sure, you would want a rectangular screen because "reading text, looking at pictures, reading maps" would be your primary use cases. The round watchmakers clearly aren't targeting such users. Android Wear in general seems to be centered on presenting focused "glances" of information rather than being a general app platform.
If a thief gets your phone and your passcode, it's game over. Apple Pay is going to be the least of your worries since credit cards can be canceled and have fraud protection. Your main concern should be the thief's unfettered access to your emails and other personal files.
The IMEI was just an example of a unique hardware identifier. You could instead use the serial number. 
Apple could simply associate the device's IMEI (or other unique hardware identifier, like a serial number) and your Apple ID to each 5G chunk of storage. When the person who buys your device activates the device, Apple will notice that it has changed ownership and can reallocate the quota to the new owner. If your quota falls below the total size of your files. Apple could for instance just do what other storage providers like Dropbox do, and prevent you from syncing until...
Samsung in 2012 was sued for copying specific design elements in both hardware and software UI. One might just as well argue that those particular infringing elements aren't really essential to the operation of the device since other UI's (such as stock android, which was designed specifically to work around several patents like slide-to-unlock) allow the user to operate the smartphone just as well. As Samsung's devices sold for about the same price as, say, LG's, those...
If prices were determined purely based on value to the producer, why then do companies use shell companies when buying potentially valuable trademarks?
Based on actual evidence that they are more scrupulous than Google about sharing customer data?  "Some banks use your data to market to you directly, or through affiliates. Some, including major players such as Bank of America, Citi, Capitol One, Chase, Discover Bank and HSBC, allow non-affiliated outside companies to market to you. These banks allow customers to opt out of such marketing – but you have to know it takes place and then go through all the trouble of figuring...
All this handwringing about Google seeing your credit card info seems misplaced from a security perspective. Whenever you buy something from iTunes or Google Play with a credit card, you are already entrusting Apple or Google with storing your credit card info securely on their servers.
If PIN were less secure than fingerprint for authentication, then why does Apple make TouchID subordinate to a PIN? iOS will trust your PIN but not your fingerprint in certain situations, such as after 48 hours of idle time or right after boot. However there are no situations where the reverse is true.
What's snide about the iPhone 6+ comment? He's stating that the iPhone 6+ meets his requirements better than any previous generation of iPhone. How is that criticism?
