I wonder whether we'll see an Apple Watch update? Judging by the emojis, the Apple Watch is currently on <= 8.2.
 Navteq, which is part of HERE, has huge value to someone like Apple. They're one of only two organizations to offer complete navigable digital maps of North America and Europe. 
Beats would have to do something amazing to make me swap from Spotify. For me, Spotify wins for the same reason that Netflix wins - ubiquity. I can get Spotify on [i]all[/i] of my devices, whether they're Apple-branded or not (e.g. Sonos).
 Not even close.  Mine has been great. For such a big launch there's been relatively few complaints. Remember antenna-gate?
I don't agree with the hate for Radio 1. Their purpose is to be mainstream but they push the envelop far farther than any commercial radio station. Daytime Radio 1 follows a strict playlist but in the evening the station still experiments. And just because these producers work for Radio 1, it doesn't mean that their tastes in music align completely with the station.
 I've found there to be an annoying lag, to the point where I think that Siri has failed to pick up what I've said. I then repeat the message and both attempts appear on the screen at once!
This is why having a diverse workforce is a good idea. 
I'm not finding the Apple Watch to be very app-centric. I occasionally look up the football scores but apart from that, I'm happy with just the clock, Glances and notifications.
 The app conforms to the spirit of the rules even if doesn't conform to the exact wording. The rejection was bogus.
The Sport edition comes in a long, flat box. The SS edition comes in a more traditional watch box.   Very happy with my SS/ML Apple Watch. :)
