Apple said that specifically? The iPhone has to be "nearby?" I agree it makes sense, but I'm curious to know for sure.
I would guess that too. But you've tried it? Or read that is how the function works on Apple source documentation?
Yes, Apple Watch will require an iPhone. But I'm curious where iPhone has to be. Apple's web page says Apple Watch has wifi, meaning theoretically, the Watch can connect to the iPhone via any wifi network. The Connectivity functions with iPhone to Yosemite phone calls requires the same network, so it is plausible the Watch->iPhone connection will require that. But maybe not?   "Early 2015" is only hours away. 
I'm down with all that. Hoping to see it come to pass. Any addition of choices for the consumer is good. The Holy Grail of course is streaming live sports. The Gorilla in the room is ESPN. NHL, MLB and NBA have built out nice apps on AppleTV to go with their offerings online. The NFL is conspicuously absent, having just recently renewed their exclusive agreement with DishTV.  There's lots of work for Apple to do; and they seem to have the correct strategy. 
This was an interesting read. Thanks AI.   There is little doubt there is more to come. Simple extrapolation of the product lines, as the article points out, shows that AAPL has a design and innovation strategy that works. Contrary to what some might be concluding, the Apple Watch is not a make or break product. I expect it to be wildly popular, but I am really looking forward to the stuff no one is predicting. Sure - all the world waits for an AppleTV update, but with...
I don't get it. As others have commented, there is more to this than meets the eye. Making a movie available on iTunes can't take more than a few clicks. Fairly, there has to be a license deal to include it, and if Tim wanted something done, surely his lawyers could print the document for him and Sony.   So...it has to be concerns on bandwidth (that I have a hard time understanding, but will defer to others that seem to think this would be an issue. How much load can a...
 I'm really interested to see what the final product can do in this regard. A 0%->100% battery charge in <30m is an important spec. I would also expect lots of third party charging options: docks, cables and portable packs. You sort of solve a lot of issues with a little silver dollar sized battery pack you toss in your coat pocket, bag, or wherever. A bedsize dock will be popular, as will one that sits near the shower.
I have no interest whatsoever in any of those products. They represent no value to me. Others are free to buy, of course. I wonder if Apple could sell 10-15M in their first year of any of them to be a success?
Interesting to read the comments on any Apple Watch article. It does bring out a polarized crowd. Meaning lots of hits and page visits for AI. So...of course a nonsensical article title is included.   The comment about the "personal" communication is quite accurate. I too think the taptic feature will be a big draw.   I ditched my landline some years ago in favor of cell. When I'm home, I put my phone on my computer to recharge. But of course, I can't hear it when I am...
Kate has such beautiful hair. It'd look so much better if she didn't dye the roots black.
