Yeah, the fact that the storage sizes haven't really changed much since 2009 is sad.
Although this move doesn't telegraph it, I'm hoping Apple will take the lead and start being a bit more generous. Memory is so cheap. 8GB borders on pathetic in 2014.
I think this is a good move.
At the same time, my enthusiasm starts to wane when I remember that Apples shares dipped below $400 last April... Then hovered in the $400s for months.
With that in mind, this move strikes me as more necessary than bold.
Bold would have been last summer.
Either way, I am happy as an APPL long.
I essentially agree with you. Apple likely knows through research whether or not a watch would fly. I mean, so few people wear watches anymore. The younger people are it seems the less likely they care to wear one. I'm not sure what a watch could do to enhance my life/experience. iWatch could really be the television.
