 Between what Apple thinks is best for business versus what popnfresh thinks, I think I'll go with the guys running the most profitable company on earth. Apple is not turning itself into another luxury goods company.  It is turning itself into the first true luxury tech company.  Not a tech company that dabbles in luxury (the old Apple), or a luxury company that dabbles in tech (Vertu), but one that is at home and respected and feared by both the tech and luxury goods...
 Haptic feed back is patented.  And Apple really is the first to deploy anything like it.  I won't claim to be an expert but unlike rounded corners or swipe to unlock, I think this patent is a lot easier to defend and enforce.
 I didn't put them on my list because I don't remember the CEOs of those companies making arrogant or dismissive public statements like the ones I listed. You should always respect the competition, if only because not doing so leads to smugness that leads, in turn, to fatal inaction.

How many of you have been in a meeting where the boss gives a guy a death stare for pulling out his phone to glance at the screen?  Score one for the AppleWatch.
 All these unbelievably expensive adornments that men buy?  They're no different from a peacock's fantail. There is no limit to what men are willing to trade, including their standing in society*,  just to get some booty. There's a parallel story for women, by the way. *Search term "Eliot Spitzer"
 Hit the nail right on the head.  There are people too who sound really agitated about it.  Those are the scary ones.
