If you can't beat 'em...
 I have to imagine that lots of people don't go anywhere without their phones, including when running (in case of emergency, for example).  I would guess that Watch+iPhone will do anything that the Band's embedded GPS would do. On the other hand (pun intended), the ability to trim all unnecessary weight/bulk by leaving one's phone behind and still get a GPS-tracked run will probably have some pick Band over (or in addition to) Watch.
I have to imagine that Apple's working on peer-to-peer money transfers internally.  Only I expect they'll use the same care they did with Apple Pay to preserve privacy and security for the end users - it would only make sense for them to do so.
Lol - ouch. They do seem to be off to a bit of a rocky start.
Deft. Between DED and Gruber it appears some reviews have been catalyzed.

Reminds me of a guy who had his friend call his loan officer and tell them he'd like to "walk away from the loan" and ask if that would that be possible.   To quote Babbage: I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
This looks like a #backfire waiting to happen for the NFL.  If it had been just the Beats headphones, maybe not so much, but NFL may take heat for the fact that he was doing it to support a worthy cause - makes NFL look like they are uncaring (even though the tweet indicating that they were worn to show support for cancer awareness came after the fine).
I have absolutely nothing against investors, including very rich and powerful ones (as long as they use their influence in a morally and ethically sound way).  What I do wonder is if this may not be a case of trying to get all the gold out of the goose up front with disregard for the long term health of the animal (or an understanding of the unique way this particular goose seems to defy 'market sense' so consistently).   I also wonder whether Apple buying back so much...
 Love the idea.  Only things I'd change: instead of a curvy chevron shape maybe a simple rectangle with rounded corners.  And maybe have it be on my wrist instead of lapel.  :)
