It says "Requires iPhone 5 or later."  I don't have an iPhone, and would like the watch, and so this means it has to "come with a data plan" for those of us without phones. Unless that's just in reference to something specific?
Well, now we know which posters are white WASP males ages 19-45
Couldn't they just ignore input on the side of the screen?  Unless a certain app wanted it for some reason. I actually don't completely hate it, but the benefits seem fairly small to me
Isn't that the definition?
Fair enough. the arguments for lead times for developers are pretty convincing in this thread as well.  Still, seems weird to announce it before Christmas and ship after, but what the hell do I know about anything.
 That's not fair - the poster clearly meant that the iPhone used hard-to-get-a-hold of parts because it was such a new category (not for Apple, but for the industry); Blackberry even called an emergency meeting where they thought that this thing can't be real IIRC.  No way any company could catch up in 6 months to iPhone in 2007.  (Still they only did it because it has to clear FCC, not because they had a jump on competition) For an "iWatch" the competition could see the...

 It may be a stupid product (or not - I'm not sure) but this is without a doubt the stupidest argument.  Infant mortality rates before the last century were astronomical - in many places even in North America they were still very high before World War II.  Innovation is the ONLY reason things are "fine" now.
