There is a critical flaw in your analysis. During the final months of his life, Steve Jobs worked closely with Apple personnel to map out product plans for the five (5) years to follow. This means that the Watch was conceived and largely developed on Jobs's watch. Pardon the pun.
You are correct. Some configurations of the 42 mm Watch Edition are priced at $12,000 rather than $15,000. These have a margin of only $9000 each or 300%. You are also correct that you said less than 10 million sales. However, you did not specify how many sales less than 10 million. Forgive me for rounding 9,999,999 to 10 million.Is this what you have been reduced to? After all of your caterwauling about the certain and dramatic failure of the Watch, you now quibble over...
So say that 10 million Watch sales will make it Apple's first major failure since 1997? I had always assumed that the UK had an excellent education system. You should not have slept through your mathematics classes. The Watch is not a MacBook Air. MacBook Airs are sold on very thin margins. Each Watch--from the Sport to the Edition--will be sold at crazy margin. The 42 mm yellow gold Edition, for example, contains 69 grams of gold alloy. The price of gold today is...
You don't get out much. The fault that you find in the Watch Edition is easy to find in any premium watch. The Roger Dubuis Excaliber Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon RDDBEX0395 will hit you for £235,500. This is somewhat north of your average Rolls Royce or Bentley. Do you believe that the Roger Dubuis watch has anywhere near the material needed to justify its premium over the super luxury sedan?We don't have to go to precious metals. Take a look at your a stainless...
And you know this how?
I did not say that the Thermovoltaic Effect is a major issue, but it is an issue. It may be a major issue in plumbing. However, it is an issue that must be addressed anywhere you join two dissimilar metals. Without steps taken to mitigate it, the Thermovoltaic Effect may initiate corrosion at the junction.
Based on your previous posts on this thread, I understand that you are not joking. This just makes you woefully mistaken. Placebos are used in the study of double-blind drug efficacy studies.In double-blind studies, neither those administering the drugs nor those taking the drugs know whether any subject was given the drug under study or a placebo. The efficacy of the drug is measured by how much better those receiving the drugs do over those who receive placebos. If a...
Do you have any credible published studies or even mainstream reports on the efficacy of placebos? My information is that placebos are no more effective than no medical treatment at all.A quick search of the Placebo Effect indicates that it is the fact that some people "feel better" after having taken placebos. However, feeling better is not the same as doing better. We live in a time when feelings and beliefs trump objective documentary facts. Our mainstream media pander...
You certainly like to cry innocent to charges that no one made. Nowhere in any of my previous posts did I ever mention a plastic Watch.
If is presumptuous of you to tell me what I clearly believe when you don't even understand what I wrote. The most that you can infer from my earlier post is that I believe that the addition of the iPhone 5c increased costs over offering only a single line. This would be a fair inference and an accurate one. I will remind you of the old saying:A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.The iPhone 6 Plus is Apple's top-of-the-line phone. However, the iPhone 5c is...
