The Apple Watch is fully an iPhone accessory. Not only does it access the Internet through a paired phone, but as noted on AppleInsider earlier today, the way you install apps on it is to install an app on your iPhone that comes with an Apple Watch "extra," that is pushed to the watch next time it is in Bluetooth range.   So I'm not sure it should really be sold at a place that doesn't also sell the phone.
You chain them together. For example this adaptor gives you a USB 3.1 port, and HDMI port, and *another* USB-C port (which you could plug your power adaptor in to).http://store.apple.com/us/product/MJ1K2AM/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter But it's going to look super messy if people start chaining these things together. A better solution is some kind of hub. I suspect the next Cinema Display will plug in to your USB-C port and have all sorts of ports on the back such...
 I think you probably could. In the Playback Settings on Netflix it says Ultra HD is 7GB per hour. Presuming that figure includes headers and other overhead, converting it to bits per second is:(7 * 1024 * 1024 * 8) / (60*60) = 16,311 bits per secondAn ADSL2+ connection close to the exchange can get 20-23 mbit/s and that's what FTTN essentially does, give you an exchange (the node) close by. Personally I am in the part of the NBN that will be served by the HFC cables, so...
USB 3.1 will definitely spread (based on how quickly the PC world has adopted new USB versions in the past), but whether the USB-C connector will is more up in the air. We could end up in a world where 95% of the PC world sticks with type A connectors. 
It could be good for MPs to have tablets... It might improve the quality of debate if you can fact check your opponent in real time.
I don't know about New Zealand, but the arrival of Netflix in Australia has disrupted the market a lot. The traditional cable providers have dropped their prices through the floor, and 2 local Internet streaming services have opened: Presto https://www.presto.com.au and Stan https://www.stan.com.au   iTunes has not lowered their prices or made any visible changes though. iTunes charges $6.99 for a single HD rental vs Netflix $11.99 for a month of all you can eat HD. The...
The last iOS update had a long list of bug fixes, it would be nice if this OS X one did too.
This is certainly different to how Apple has marketed products in the past. We'll see if it works!   They really have getting dressed down to a science, don't they?
I believe the main difficulty/barrier to entry in the EV market is the ability to reliably mass produce complex objects. Apple has lots of experience in mass production, and Tesla has a head start on everyone else, but I'm not sure many of Branson's past ventures have involved mass production. He seems like more of a business/branding maestro.
They are definitely going all-out to make it cool, e.g. the ads in modelling/style magazines instead of tech magazines. One can imagine in 10 years time, miniaturization will be such that you will have a little pin that you clip to your collar, or shirt, that has all the functionality of today's Watch. So all Apple's future computers will be jewellery in one form or another. So the display cases they are putting in for the Watch, and the safes, and the hiring of Angela...
