The problem with the Apple Watch is those of us who wear water-resistant watches, shower with them, swim with them and change the battery once every two years, will not be happy with the Apple Watch.
The speculations that Apple was working on an electric car (or any car for that matter) was as absurd as UFO sightings. I can never understand why such speculative drivel is reported in the first place, and even worse, allowed to expand over a week of time. As Mark Twain said: If you don't read the news, you're uninformed; if you read the news, you're misinformed.
Will the silliness never end?    “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” -- Mark Twain.
All the western governments are broke. Most of ours and their GDP are based on speculative stocks and financial institutions which are not based on productivity. Austerity in EU has collapsed all but Germany. None of the governments seem to exist for the people who live there. They have all bought into trickle down. Corporations want the benefits without paying for them. 
A pen with a larger iPad is just the ticket. An iPad emulating A4, 8 1/2 x 11 or legal size pads would be ideal. Add to that OS and software that would simultaneously allow reading a book and taking notes (like writing notes in the margins) would drive sales for certain. I would definitely buy such a device.
As for current owners not upgrading to iPhone 6, it's likely they will wait for the iPhone 7.
I went to the link recommended in this article which gives instructions on how to get automatic updates of flash. That adobe forum page tells me I'm running Flash, and I'm running Firefox on a Window 8 machine. Say what? My version is actually, running Safari on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 So much for Adobe program quality.
Note: all the information presented was based on a fairly small sample of respondents. I don't know how the sample was chosen nor how representative the sample was. The safe bet is to wait until the actual numbers are published. 
We'll see how well MS pulls this off. It might give Apple a run for its money, as it did, finally with Windows 3.1. Apple shouldn't be listening to its fanboy base and take this competition seriously. The ability to run same software on multiple devices cannot be oversold. Apple's lame attempts to make Pages, Numbers applications work on OS X, iOS, and web resulted in complete loss of functionality -- they're not even toy applications any more. And Apple's iBook...
Who needs to run Windows? I certainly don't anymore. Both Parallels and VM Fusion cause big performance problems running Windows OS and Windows apps. But, the ability to do so and the use of BootCamp (which I've never used) couldn't be a better marketing tool for Macs and for those wanting buy a Mac but needing an argument for purchasing an expensive Mac over a cheap PC.
