I don't view ugradeability as much as an issue as serviceability. In my view, Apple paradoxically and purposefully designed a dumb smart watch. Yes, there is most certainly a lot of tech in the watch, but sensors aside, most of the computational power comes from the IPhone and uses the watch as a wireless display with user feedback control. So unless there is a need for better near field wireless speed (which I doubt since there is not a lot of data you need to push to a...
So Apple will have to, and I presume are already planning to, make sure the longevity of the watch is comparable to $5k watches. Short of utter destruction, an investment in a $5-10k traditional watch will last owners decades - crystals, crowns, movements can all be serviced. For Apple to stand firmly in that echelon of retail, there will need to be legitimate sense of longevity and serviceability for the watch. This is then more than a new branch on the product...
Too bad...ideal choice to play Jobs.
 Yes, it is in the worse possible orientation for the way one naturally holds their wrist when reading a device. (sorry responded to wrong post, but you get the gist)

99.9% of consumers don't need retail receipts printed to do their taxes. And if you need it for any reason, just AirPrint it.
Used at Walgreen's the other day, and today at Bloomingdales - worked great... Now to get rid of the other nonsense for frequent shopper phone number, signing the display. Receipts should be stored digitally in the phone as well
Just noticed the same thing...odd...
Oh this judge is winner... Ummmm, Mr. Judge, given Apple will sell hundreds of millions of devices that use this tech in a critical way, don't you think, umm, they might just want to be teensy weeny sure that it met the most stringent standards, lest, say, they had to recall and replace tens of millions of devices?
This was my personal pick long ago...He can nail this. If they take some liberties with Jobs' portrayal (allowing Bale to stretch from Jobs' single-purpose public persona to incorporate some emotional range), with a well written script he will probably get a best actor nomination. How's that for a baseless opinion?
