 When you already have a great phone like the 5S it's not really urgent to upgrade... because the distraction of gazing at a brand new Apple Watch fills that empty space in your heart. :-) Funny. But I think true.
I think most don't realize that profit from selling aWatches is actually not as important as Apple continuing to grow its mindshare, brand and ecosystem.   Because along with customer satisfaction numbers (which are great), Apple secures itself as THE platform to buy into, live with...and die with.   To die with?...Apple has in its hands the hardware/software platform of the century. Many will literally die with an Apple device in our pocket, around our wrist or on...
This all brings up interesting questions on supply chain and the delivery process, and to comment on yours:1. Yes, there is "significant amount of inventory" but that's subjective. Obviously there's NOT ENOUGH inventory to meet demand.2. Yes, it is certainly planned and with CEO oversight by the "king", Tim Cook. But again, see comment #1.3. Not sure I agree. I would think that China would not get as many aWatches as the U.S.4. This is the most interesting question and...
As I said, I agree that there are challenges in all Apple rollouts (esp. a wearable device). but you still have not provided any other better way, because at this point, I don't think there is a better way. So what's your solution again? I kind of want to backtrack on my opinion that there will be watches available on 4/24 to buy directly from the retail store...because really, the best method to fill orders in the supply chain is to manage it remotely and not have...
Interest is 1/2 of iPhone!?!?!  Wow. I was predicting that initial rollout would be tempered and then more aggressive numbers coming in 3 months later.  But if interest is already at 1/2...this rollout will be amazing. Most don't need this device, why would they go out and buy it? I was thinking interest was more like 1/5 of iPhone.
To clarify, the comparison is IF Apple had demos for 2 weeks PRIOR to preorder...what situation would we be in? And my opinion is that Apple would have had a LOT more physical visits to the store... which would have been unnecessary...and kind of awkward to have a physical product but unable to order. If everyone already knows that there will be zero watches available at the store on 4/24...then yes, I'm not keeping up. Then thanks for educating me. But then you say "Apple...
Why are you complaining? Are you frantically trying to decide and obtain one? Otherwise, tone down your complaining, it's irrelevant. I think we all agree that there are inherent challenges with a roll-out like this. But if you couldn't provide a better solution that you were willing to share with Apple months ago (when they were planning), then shut up. What's your solution again?...that Apple should have just provided watch demos 2 weeks before pre-order? What would that...
That's a valid point albeit not very important for me.We will see what the battery usage/capacity really is in time, but I agree, many would want the watch face to display something while in "standby" mode. I'm assuming that aWatch can display in standby? Edit: I would opt for the $100M-diamonds-sparkling display for my standby mode.
If you're saying that the Macbook unboxing and the iPhone unboxing has the same problem...I would disagree.The MB laptop is 2 lbs. The iPhone is 5 oz. It's dumb to unbox your new laptop while standing up not to mention physically very awkward...the vast majority will place it on their lap or a table. The iPhone on the other hand is frequently opened by holding the box with one hand and pulling the cover off with the other hand...standing?..sitting?...most people don't...
I don't consider this idiot-proofing...I consider it common sense risk avoidance. I don't think you realize how EASY it is for a 5 oz. "handheld computer" to flick out of the box even when opening rather carefully...has also something to do with the box cover not quite sliding off easily (making it even more probable that a flicking motion will result as the cover suddenly detaches). I agree with you, I'm not one of those that holds others responsible for my stupidity or...
