Building millions of anything is a herculean task, but Apple did rather play this close to the vest. IIRC, there is a shareholder earnings call on like 4/27. It will be interesting to hear Tim's comments. They did specifically say that they would not report Apple Watch sales or shipments separately. Probably many reasons for that, not the least of which is that information like that is valuable for many things. Apple is rather famous for not giving away information that...
I ordered 2 about 7 hours after it went live. Shows delivery in June. I think it possible Apple will use the pre-order data to tweak their supply chain, and the dates will slowly move sooner. I wouldn't be surprised if 4-6 weeks is pretty much the norm. If the wait times stay at 3 months or more...well...there's likely gonna be some splainin' to do.
Drool Drool. Can't wait!
Angie Fail.   I am trying to be generous by assuming the article contains only a snippet of the complete email. But it is email like this from very senior management that sort of drive me crazy. AAPL pays her how many 10s of millions to write this? Angie, the watch is a new product that requires (dare I say it?) a "personal" approach. Your boss uses this word over and over every time he talks about it. Why aren't you using this touchphrase? "Come see the watch in person!...
Now I know why Strava doesn't correctly interface with the Health app anymore. They're spending all their time working on the Watch app.    Meanwhile, Heath counts my bike rides as steps, and doesn't read the feed from the Strava app.    Just make it all work please?
It's all about the content. Cook and Co are pretty clearly interested in a great user experience first and foremost. Herky-jerky downloads will really destroy that, and Apple won't roll out a technology that does that. The bandwidth issues are significant.   The AppleTV UI really does need some work. I'm guessing one of the new compatible controllers will be apple watch.   It is also possible (although less liely) we will see a line of Apple TV form factors. A stick...
I think the Watch itself will be reasonably intuitive. These videos seems to meet my expectations. Really looking forward to getting one.   But...I do think users will need to spend a little bit of time getting the Watch to do exactly what they want. The companion app on the iPhone will be important for this. I already know the notifications and message will need to be set very selectively. I get a lotta spam, and I don't want it on my wrist. My iPhone has a lot of stuff...
 Yes, please go, Carly. Note the "Ousted" title.  This is something the Republic is now going to have to come to grips with. Using the words "fairness" and "tolerance" and "equality" in discussing religion is nonsensical. Religions, by definition, are all about unfairness, intolerance, and inequality. It is really shocking how little some people that profess to follow certain religions know about the tents of their own. The First Amendment to the US Constitution has...
There is a difference between doing business in a country with its own sovereignty; and speaking up as a citizen of a self-governing republic and commenting on its law making.
Ah. Interesting. That might be a first for an apple product? IIRC, there was much angst over the water sensors in iPhone. Apple had a tell tale in them. Wonder if Apple Watch has such a thing.
