 TSMC has a 8" wafer fab in Camas Washington with 1100 workers.  They are producing the A8 with one of their primary 12" fabs in Taiwan (Fab 14). It could be they are nosing around NY to open a new 12" advanced fab but so far it's rumors of a job fair.
 Needs a laser, removable (digital) crown that has a garrote, and geiger counter....
When it's removed from your wrist it's locked. It may wipe itself at that point until it gets paired and unlocked by the phone again.Why would you want to use the watch online?It's on your wrist. That's the security factor. If removed from your wrist it's no longer a key.WTF? Since when do they give back coins in a credit card transaction?I really like the idea of a smartphone but not one that costs $350.I would expect that you unlock with the paired phone:Put on watch....
 That other 90% is better handled with a larger device than what most folks have today.  It may not be as compelling for a 4" device but with a 5.5" device it may be.  Between a BT headset and the Apple watch I can see moving to a larger device that is much more geared toward being near you (backpack, purse, briefcase, jacket) than on you except when you are actively using it. In any case, the killer apps are payments and keys.  I can carry nothing but the watch and have...
 Other than it's not $49 how is the watch not a shuffle replacement?  The shuffle only has 2GB storage.  The watch plays music to a bluetooth headset.
 $350?  That's not all that expensive for a watch.  If you think it is expensive then it's not for you. The stainless and gold ones will be more. The changeable watch face and bands allows for changes of mood and color matching.
 Your cuffs have no buttons?  You either need to buy real shirts or stop being a gormless knob and learn how to put on and take off shirts.  With a tight cuff your hands wouldn't fit through the opening either. Many dress watches don't fit under tight cuffs.  Most dress watches, even the thin ones, are more than 5mm.
 Seems Apple spent a lot of the 20mm die shrink benefits on thermal headroom and extra GPU cores.  It'll throttle eventually but I suspect not for normal iOS gaming.
 You probably can via Metal but I have not looked.  Mmmm...I was going to go for the Nvidia Shield Tablet rather than wait for the nexus.  What do you think of the build quality of the nvidia?  I guess I might as well wait until october.  Huh...I didn't know it was that cheap.  Maybe I'll get one but honestly I don't have the time to play. G'luck on the latter.
 Want to bet most of the folks bitching about the thickness of the watch doesn't own a french cuff shirt?
