I rather expect a Beats/Apple branded line of headphones, including BT options to appear any time. Sport BT for use with Apple Watch; active noise cancelling one for airline travel and other high noise environments. Any reason why an iPod Shuffle can't be embedded as well? 
 I agree with you that they will likely sell way more than that. Upwards of double that.  Some will wait. For many, and entry price of $350 is not that much money. The comments in the article about the holiday season increase are probably accurate. I can see this being a popular gift. You do sort of need to know your recipient has an iPhone though. I wonder if Apple will offer custom engraving on the Apple Watch?  I wonder how Apple Watch could be packaged to make the...
Threadjack:   I read today Tim Cook is headed to Israel for...something or other.   Now...there are certain parts of the US that aren't particularly safe, but Israel is much closer to that brutal ISIS bunch. If I was Evil(tm) and had minions, I'd be thinking about how to get to a guy that is integral to a $700B company that could pay a ransom. Seriously...what kind of security does Tim have? Remember how weird it was when Steve was sick, and "succession plans" were...
I would expect a big Apple Logo to flash on the screen when you light it off. :-) But I see your point. Given it was in "hobby" status for so long, it will be really interesting to see what it could turn into once Chairman Honeycrisp decides to get serious about it. That AppleTV interface needs some work. Hope Jony finds some time to give it a polish. You know...with al-u-min-i-um champhord edges...
Probably a lot of things have to fall into place for it to come together. This isn't trivial for Apple. I see some of the SmartHome devices require a hub, and no one wants more dongles, boxes, basestations and the like. If it can all be pulled together, it can be really attractive for hardware manufacturers to innovate with. But surely, Apple wants content and gaming on it too, and the business proposition for all this is tough. Bet Eddie Cue has been busy. Still...waiting...
I can see it becoming an AppleTV "stick" like Chromecast, RokuStick, FireStick etc.
 It looks a bit like the old del.icio.us concept. A bookmark collector/sharing tool. Like everything else social media, you have to be inclined to that sort of thing.  Concur. Probably more to come. It first with Apple's strategy of letting their third party partners solve some of their problems. It is kinda cool...so long as the ultimate install process is a secure trip through the walled garden. It appears to simply be a different user interface for the app store. Cool. 
I had no idea this was still happening in the world. How the hell did this get past the union reps?   Oh. Wait. What?
Yeah....No:   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kickshark/chronosdock-luxury-bedside-dock-for-apple-watch   Someone is going to have to do better than this...
I'm really in two minds about how to go about buying. It is a given I will be buying two, and like when I bought iPad, it would be nice to get them delivered to the front door on launch day. But...I'm kind of thinking I'd like to try one on, compare the models and bands...make it an experience. But there is no way I am going anywhere near an Apple Store within 3 months of launch. They will be swamped, and I don't need the chaos. I would be interested in seeing the actual...
