 You are missing the point.  If the kid who shot him had a regular handgun (or a buckshot round, not a birdshot round), the bullet/buckshot would have gone right through the plastic iPhone 5C.
Funny, a few years ago many people here were eating up the Apple-branded TV rumor like candy.  They all believed it and thought it would be the best thing since sliced bread.  Now that Apple dropped that bad egg, they all suddenly think what a great idea that Apple is not going to make a TV of their own.  Apple making a TV would be a worthless product because no one uses the TV features.  They use it primarily as a big monitor with their Home Theater system feeding it...
ALL manufacturers have a default of high brightness, high contrast, high color saturation.  That is commonly warned about in every TV review in AV magazines.  Sony flatscreen TVs are not well rated.  They lost that when CRTs disappeared and they had the flagship Trinitron.  Samsung and LG have far better picture quality than Sony.  You are correct in that most people do not adjust the settings out of the box, and leave it with terrible high settings that do not look good...
Actually, you are completely wrong.  The iPhone 6 Plus has cannibalized iPad sales because people want something smaller, not larger.  This was confirmed in the last earnings call.  No one wants a 12" iPad.  They do not want to carry around a larger tablet that would be heavier.  
Go to the gym if you think 4.4 lbs. is too heavy.
WRONG!  There is a reason why the MacBook is called PRO.  In case you didn't notice, the new crippled laptop with USB-C is only called MacBook.  They resurrected the MacBook-only name to separate it from the Pro line.  There was no such thing as the SCSI to USB 2.0 transition.  Apple dropped SCSI with USB 1.1 ports with the first iMac in 1998.  Thunderbolt replaced FireWire.
Maybe you should read this.  Apple is PAYING this serious athlete to market and advertise the watch for them, to claim it is for serious athletes. http://www.apple.com/watch/christy-turlington-burns/
 There are valid complaints about the Apple Watch, you just refuse to believe them.  Here is a list of them from a valid, in-depth review from another site.  Watch OS is tricky to learn and the Apple Watch app can be flaky. Several actions, including pulling up Glances, opening apps, or scrolling through emoji, are consistently slow. Drawing, tapping, and heartbeat-sending features are gimmicky. Pricing is reasonable by luxury watch standards but high by consumer...
 Unfortunately, Apple is advertising the product as bluetooth audio from the watch, heart-rate monitoring from the watch, and everything else from the watch.  Apple doesn't want to advertise using other products because they don't want people to do that.  They expect the watch to do it all, but unfortunately it has a tiny battery.  You made good points, but Apple will never tell anyone to do that.  Apple wants that type of athlete to expect the watch to replace all those...
Because it is constantly sending data to the watch during activity, draining the watch battery, and the iPhone's battery.
