This is an interesting site: http://bandswapper.com/ Neatly solves a couple of issues with the sport bands. 
I'm kind of on edge to see what will happen.
At this stage, one of the big unknowns is the band attach mechanism. I think this is the first picture I've seen of the band part not inserted into the Watch case. I would believe Apple could have put some pairing mechanism in the bands to make them proprietary; but I think it unlikely. It remains to be seen how much Apple will tolerate third party bands. I'm told attendees at the Spring Forward event were not able to toy or inspect that mechanism.   The idea of DRM-like...
"Yes, I agree. It is clear that Apple Pay stickers will be a complete failure like everything else Apple has done recently." -Ben Frost Just getting a jump on it.

I'm looking forward to reading the book. There is no doubt that Jobs was a complicated individual.    I really didn't think Isaacsson's book was all that uncomplimentary. I found a comment recently that a colleague said that Steve was "never an asshole." Well, that term sure has a lot of subjectivity. IIRC, Steve never put plates on his car and parked across multiple parking spots, including handicapped sport long before he was disabled. I can see someone thinking such...
