I agree - widespread release of a variety of styles and price levels.   Maybe even co-branded?  "The Swatch iTime with Apple Technology!"
As interesting as the iWatch might be, I can't get too excited about wearing anything on my wrist.  I have a nice collection of watches with dead batteries and yes, the watches were replaced by my iPhone since it does a fine job of telling time. But the real reason they lie dormant is that I strongly dislike the physical presence of the watch on my arm.  It annoys me throughout the day.  It bangs into things and gets damaged - which also annoys me.  Even though the iWatch...
Historically, isn't creating a new OS (even for phones) an exceedingly difficult task and one frequently prone to failure?  Does Samsung have any experience creating OSes?  This seems like more of Samsung just competing for competition's sake.  No real strategy, no clear plan - let's just try this and see what sticks to the wall.
It really is amazing.  All of the thousands of little details and changes between models.  I can't comprehend how anyone can keep track of all that and still have a good product outcome.  Humans can be impressive sometimes.   However, this won't move me away from the basic assertion of my personal motto: Human beings, no damn good.  
I think you might be right.  SWA is still very PC centric internally as far as I know.  Most big companies are.
I agree.  Steve "managed" AT&T into a sweet carrier deal for the original iPhone and that paid off big time.  This IBM deal could be similar in scope and payoff for Apple over the long term. IBM was probably easier to deal with than those AT&T asswipes.
I used to do a lot of editing work on SWA tv spots for their ad agency.  I sometimes got interesting inside information about SWA from the agency people.  I learned that Southwest is unrelentingly PC centric so I'm not surprised they made the wrong decision on tablets.  They must have a bunch of elderly IT managers and directors.  I'm surprised they don't require Internet Exploder to access their website.
Microsoft can pair up with Novell and . . .  wait.  Never mind.
The biggest segment of the population susceptible to this sort of scam is the elderly.  Judging from the people I meet in my mother-in-law's retirement complex I see why criminals target the old folks, both on computers and via telephone.  They just don't get any of this, but that doesn't diminish their desire to be part of the modern world.  Even my 84 year old Dad who is pretty smart (petrochemical engineer) fell for a phone call from an India based company that called...
I noticed that a location error I had reported several times over the last year or so, is now fixed.  Not sure if it took so long because I was the only one complaining or if it represents an increased effort on their part.  Either way, good to see it corrected.
