Regarding the watch market: I should have said that too. It's just a general observation that the younger crowd is completely set with their smart phones. As far as high end watches being on the upswing, I believe that. Luxury goods for the well-to-do have done well in this economy. A friend of mine does not wear a watch but he likes to buy high end Rolexes now and then.   Here's one thing, however. I don't think the younger generation is going to view the Apple watch as...
I'm not as jazzed about the watch as others but at least I'm open minded. I'm titillated by what Apps are going to appear on this thing to compel us to buy it. I know Cook refers a lot to the health aspects of it. It tells you to stand up. It counts your daily walking/running mileage. Somehow it helps him in the gym. It monitors his heart. For all I know it plays a jingle every time you pleasure yourself.   I'm intrigued by some of that but Apple must have something...
I'm sure Apple will sell a lot of gold watches in Dubai. Perhaps enough to drive up their average prices. I'm just a little weary on the watch due to the fact that an entire generation or two has grown up without wearing one. We'll see.
Well, he is doing the obvious. They are making great products and the prices are always coming down (or value is going up). Lower prices are a good thing and as Apple's efficiencies improve, prices come down, margins are maintained and the shareholders are rewarded. It's all good. I agree with the 2nd part of your post. What people get wrong is when they say, "or Apple is doomed." That is getting tired.
Yep. Have to adjust for inflation. If you don't, you'll walk around thinking the first Model T was 'cheap' when in fact, it was comparable to paying about $20K for a car today.   Good job, Apple. I'm glad to see Tim talk up the watch a bit.
Don't worry, Apple, I'll be upgrading my hot and heavy iPad 3 to an iPad Air 3 later this year. My cycle appears to be every 2-3 years.
All of this because someone had good taste, was anal about the details and could tell the future.
Competition is good. Let the best man win.
If Apple wanted to escape detection, they could have mounted that contraption on top of a el camino or something. Whatever they're up to, I hope it helps fix the horrible walking directions in the maps app.   As far as my guess, the poaching almost certainly has to do with battery technology.
mdrift.... post of the month. Thank you for the laugh and coffee splatter.
