One might think. But companies don't waste time on competition they aren't concerned about. It's beneath them. They just ignore those little folks.So if Cartier was so unconcerned they would say nothing aside from perhaps "we are not concerned" or maybe "we are in a different market"
Companies like Cartier dissing the Apple Watch as something they aren't worried about because it's sure to fail strike me as companies that are worried because in all likelihood, it won't.
In violation of basically all card merchant agreements. They all say that you can't ask to see an id to take a card. If it is presented you check that it's signed. If yes, take it. If no, it's not valid so refuse it. I believe it's Discover that lets you ask for ID, demand the card is signed and then you can take it.Smart card thieves know this and will use it to raise a fuss. I remember one guy actually had copies of the merchant agreements on him. My manager used it...
There's no 'between'. Apple was never the issue. They provided the means for the banks to have verification if the bank chose to do it. The banks didn't all do it.
Because it worked. You can hand type all the info which would be easy to get with a smart phone camera and a few seconds with the card (like you might have at a restaurant where they take your card away to swipe it rather than do it in front of you. The banks weren't doing anything to verify its youAnd Apple doesn't have your fingerprint. That is encoded into the secure element and never leaves the phone. It isn't backed up etc. or you can use your passcode for Apple Pay
 They didn't change the valid dates so its not really that big of a deal. Most folks that had phones from that early on have likely traded them in during an upgrade anyway. This is just a pretty PR stunt with no real bite. 
Curious. You say ATT which implies the US but in the US the cost of a full unit iPhone 5S service replacement is $269 plus tax and a battery replacement is $79 + tax. Not $189 and $90 And it's interesting that a manager would be so willing to crap on his sales bonus by giving you a trade in (which was likely what $150), plus pay another $150-200 on that early upgrade and then $99 for free Apple Care when they have the authority to simply wave the replacement costs for...
It's great that it works for you, but you aren't everyone. So why not allow there to be a more sophisticated option as well. Why can't Apple have a free iTunes radio with ads, an ad free with iTunes Match and then go for the killer fine tuned (by comparison) version that is Beats Music. One that might actually use data from your iTunes purchases etc to figure out what music to actually group together, allow you to hand create groups of artists etc. Like services like...
 So far there is nothing to suggest a reason for wearing it at night so take it off when you go to bed, put it on all charged up in the morning.
