  I'll thank you not to make assumptions about my opinion of CR.  It has not changed recently or ever.  My point was larger than just this forum.  I don't understand why some many dismiss anything CR says - seemingly based solely on emotional judgements.  I see them as just another information resource to be used along with many others in making any sort of purchase decision.
I am again surprised at the Internet rage directed at Consumer Reports.  Wherever you go the CR haters are turned up to 11.  What is the deal?
Safari will crash our iPad Air fairly reliably on certain websites. Actual iOS crash - not just Safari.  Other apps having crash issue like Pinterest etc. got better after app updates.
This. ^   I was an AHA for a short amount of time and there were plenty of calls during slow periods that were just people wanting to talk about the products, or wondering when the new X was coming out, or what the new X features would be, or wondering what some arcane setting in their phone did, etc blah dee frickin' blah.  I shudder to think what it would have been like during a new product launch - particularly a record setting one like this.  Remember, the Apple...
Uh yeah.  Please do NOT touch my wiz.

That is a lot of significant stuff happening in a compact time frame.  Future, uh yeah future. Wow Apple.
I think it's simply that Samsung and others have a much lower threshold for quality of design.  "Good enough" is definitely in their vocabulary.  Apple on the other hand has two anal British designers who specialize in splitting extremely fine hairs.  I'm betting that Apple really doesn't design by committee in any real way, where Samsung designers are probably only trying to please a committee with their designs.  Apple releases products when they are satisfied they have...
What gets me about the watch is the exquisite attention to mechanical detail - something that is apparently under appreciated by many of the critics.  The forms, the machining, the precision and the innovation all spot on.  I particularly liked the easily resized stainless band.  The guy pulled out the segments by just pushing a tab with his fingernail.  Genius.   I never had any concern about software, since this is Apple we knew they would get that right.
