Sure. I don't think TC spoke about 'human rights' as per written in law. I think he expressed his opinion and in so doing laid out Apple's stance and as such his points are valid. People try and make this a left v right kind of issue and there is a lot of knee jerking going on on both sides of the fence. I think Tim was trying to steer clear of party politics when he referred to privacy as a human right, and yes, I am pretty certain most people consider their privacy their...
In the words of Tim Cook: (this interview was covered by AI a couple of weeks back) “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn't give it up. We shouldn't give in to scare-mongering or to people who fundamentally don’t understand the details.”  “History has taught us that privacy breaches have resulted in very dire...

Nice report. Hands on and 'working software', and all that. Pity the software clearly stopped working after the headline had been written.
I agree - the hardware is nice but only the watch is potentially significant. Personally I am very interested in the mb. But research kit is the big announcement and together with health kit points to a new future.  I, too, had the feeling something got cut and thought the ending very abrupt.
I get your point.... but.... the Apple edition is 'the best' insofar as gold is 'better' than steel, and steel is 'better' than aluminum. It is probably more accurate to call the Edition Apple Watch the very 'nicest'. Both are subjective but 'best' implies technical or performance superiority. 
Just as a point of interest and comparison - when the SE30 came out in 1989 it cast $6,500.- or approx $ 12,500 today. 
I remember it well and it was a depressing sight - often not working and the white keyboards filthy from lack of cleaning, along with staff who actively advised customer to steer clear.  I wonder how Apple and its select retailers will manage to sway the usual jewelry / watch purchaser to go for an electronic device instead of an item where the number of diamonds usually is an important factor in determining its value. When you buy a beautiful (or not) piece of jewelry or...
Since when was wages a measure of the amount of work performed? If so I'd like to see the amount of work Apple execs do in a day. Must be quite impressive. 
I think it is only ok to ski safely but that does not mean there has to be a blanket ban on skiing while listening to music. On a crowded hill it is safest to drop the music, ski slower and well within your ability. On more open hills and semi off piste those rules change. As your ability increases so opens your options. It is always important to be aware of what is around you but your awareness increases with your skill level so again, no fixed rule. I'd question anybody...
