Kind of looks like a beard on the bottom of the phone. I guess that was Seacrest's contribution.
See "Still Alice" if you want to see a serious film with the same kind of Apple product integration.
Any cop can query DMV registration. I assume one is also an Apple fan or the friend of one. Word gets out.
One thing is for sure, whatever this is leading to won't be operational/available for years. Apple takes its time. Less interested in being first than being right.
More blah-blah from me. The gold version of the watch will account for only the tiniest percentage of overall sales. Most of us slugs will be buying the aluminum cheap-o version just to see if it's all that. Going nuts on a store re-design to keep one Crown Jewel safe is massive overkill IMHO. "By Appointment Only" (like the Genius Bar) for gold could be handled privately and securely in the back. Just trick-out a small office with non-static carpet and a Jony Ive...
What a challenge, indeed. How to accomodate a high-end luxury product into stores that were designed to showcase . . . high-end luxury products?

How much would it take, and/or how small would Apple have to become in order to be self-sustaining? Thought experiment.
Would love to get a look at Jony's sketch book auto section. Curious how his unique industrial design sensibilities would be expressed in a car.
You may be right. But based on the history of car manufacturer's practices, they loathe turning any subsystem over to outsiders. Look at the slow and grudging adoption of CarPlay, not to mention the generic radios that continue to be put into all but premium cars fifty years after the Blaupunkts and Alpines of the world showed them how it's done properly. I would love it if Apple ran my car, but Subaru probably won't.For this reason I think it more likely that Apple is...
