Interesting comment lkrupp!  Wild West was a frontier.  Wild West attracted people looking for any break over civilization, aggressive pursuers of freedom or opportunity, and people who were put there against their wishes or who were tricked into going.  Is that what Android is? Fabulous.
The only reason I brought it up is that last July I spent an hour and a half at a friend's house tracking down what was jamming his ham radios.  It turned out to be 3 of the charging pads, each waking up every dozen seconds or so and chirping for a fraction of a second.  It was very audible at 100' from the house on a BaoFeng UV5R radio set to any frequency around 140Mhz.  It was quite maddening because we first couldn't find it by walking around the inside of the house...
I have a concern about inductive charging pads in that they put out a real amount of waste energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation, i.e. radio waves.  That energy tends to be detected by sensitive radio receivers, like that found in cellphones, 2-way radios, laptop WiFi, broadcast band and television receivers, etc..   It strikes me as a generally bad idea to add to the electromagnetic noise in the house.    On the other hand, I do like the idea of not having to...
I ordered a 38mm stainless milanese on May 7th. They claimed Jun 10 to Jun 23 delivery. Yesterday (may 12th) they said it was shipped UPS for delivery today.
You may have lost the thread here.  I was suggesting that the reason I did not pre-order a watch while or after the demo was that I needed to know some important details that the demo-er didn't know.  So I went home (to use the Internet) instead of pre-ordering it at the point of demonstration.  
How does a person send an idea to the Apple team?  
 There were some important details, like how much was the Milanese band when bought for the Sport watch, etc..
I might have pre-ordered a watch after the scheduled try-on but they would only allow pre-orders on-line so at the end of the demo my wife and I went home.  At the try-on, they did not know the complete set of prices.  They had to go into the menus on an iphone-like-device to find out.  That was pretty tedious.     I had some questions that the Apple sales people couldn't answer: 1. will there be aftermarket bands for the watch?  Is that something Apple is prohibiting...
I really think they've gone back in time.  I remember Steve glowingly showing off the 3d toolbar and how the icons were reflected and how translucency was so beautiful.  I agreed with him then and I agree with him now.  The Yosemite desktop looks like something that would have been invented for a science fiction movie in the 70s before ray tracing and such.  This is tragic.  The OS8 color icons were prettier.     What I'm looking for now is for 3rd party companies to...
so how does the camera compare with the iphone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, 5s ??
