 Yeah, I'm afraid the gold models could hit $5K with a fancy band.And at that price, it would be great if Apple offered some kind of trade-in deal for biennial "upgrades." Not that I'm in the market for any of the Edition models.I have two very fancy Swiss watches (brand "R"), one gold/stainless and another stainless.But hey, the Apple Watch will be tax deductible.
Apple Watch Sport: $349. Apple Watch: $549 (my optimistically low guess.) Apple Watch Edition: $1999 (my optimistically low guess.) And those prices don't include fancy bands.   So, no, most Apple Watch models aren't targeted at the teen demographic. Raw 24K gold is about $1200 per ounce. Apple Watch Edition is either 18K yellow gold or 18K rose gold. My $1999 guess is probably waaaay low.
 Wow.  Just wait 'till Bob sees Car Play with all those little icons.Major panic attack coming.
Looks like the "S" in the 2015 iPhone "6S" will stand for "Sapphire." If GT Advanced can hold out that long. Maybe Apple Watch sapphire crystals will keep them on life support.
Interesting. Anybody know if Apple knocked down the "temporary" building in which they hosted the iPhone 6 / Apple Watch demos? If not, then maybe they'll be putting simulated living rooms in it for the iPad "Air 2" demo (and possible Home Kit demo) this month.
 I'm sure they can find some other smash-hit products to copy badly.But yeah, good riddance.
 Agree that many analysts have an agenda.  Easy to spot them. But who knows?  Maybe Apple's contract with GTAT had a performance clause.As in "No money until you can produce iPhone-sized sapphire screens in production quantity."Remember, there was a rumor that GTAT missed producing sapphire screens in quantity "by a few weeks."
Hey everybody. Let's sue Porsche for having a monopoly on 911 Turbos. And later we can sue them for having a monopoly on Panameras. /s
 And, of course, there will be an earnings call a few days after the "iPad event."There should be minor sell-offs and recoveries just before, during, then after the call.(Possibly because of major shareholders like Deutchebank trying to manipulate the price.)But if the news is good, the stock usually creeps upward gradually after each call.Seems to happen like that every quarter. AAPL investor rule #1: Buy on rumor, sell on news.
