Is this another opportunity for the obligatory "But...but...but... Android" remark?   I just ordered my silver iPhone 6+.  Heading out on a two week vacation in a couple days, and after the 2-3 week leadtime, I'll have a nice present for myself waiting when I get back! Even the Koreans consider Samsung a bottom-of-barrel shop.  There's no surprise here, including whatever commercials Samsung will spew out to make themselves appear better than they really are.
It's only a matter of time before CVS or RiteAid's system gets hacked and forces them to issue an "apology".  Retailers have shown time and time again that they cannot be trusted with the consumer's data. These retailers will no longer have my business.  
After the first download, I immediately made a bootable OSX USB.  I have multiple macs here at home and at the office and it just made more sense to keep an offline copy.  It really speeds things up.  I've been doing this for the past few OSX releases.  It just takes too long to download, especially in the beginning when we all know a gazillion people are trying to download it as well.
Most (if not all) traded their OLD iPhones to get the new one.  
Stop being a d**k.
If anything, upgrading my 2009 iMac to Yosemite actually made the bluetooth connections to my trackpad and mouse work more consistently.  I was having problems (especially on Mavericks) with my devices mysteriously stop working, yet showing it as connected.  I would occasionally have to power-off the devices and power-on to make it active again. Yosemite has been the easiest and most stable transition yet.  I'm a happy camper.
Judge Lucy Koh might as well be the resident Apple judge. Her name seems to be appearing more and more in every case!
  I'm telling ya... First BofA, then a "Payment network"... even though it had nothing to do with Apple... I'm preparing for the worst when I use ApplePay...  You just never know... :) 
I think it has to do more with battery life than trying to get you to buy an accompanying iPhone.  Fitbit can probably get away with it because of their minimalist and more energy-efficient display.  Put a GPS on the Apple Watch, and coupled with that display it will suck the battery dry in a few hours.I think the reality is that most people will always carry their phone no matter what anyways.  So it's kind of a moot point really.
I go to the gym 4 - 5 times a week and frankly, it's downright embarrassing to see how many folks at the gym are literally connected to the hip with their phones or with full-blown iPads.  They will do one set of weights, take a 20-minute "break" without ever leaving their workout bench, do another set in 30 seconds, rinse and repeat.  It's like they don't even take a moment to think that other people might be waiting to use that same equipment.I don't bring any gadget...
