No he is not. The VERY thinnest watches are 3mm. They cost more than many cars. Very thin watches are 5mm.I've owned watches for 40 years. So what?Here are links that say the same thing he does:http://www.watchstation.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?storeId=34054&page=customerCare_sizeCharts&nav=leftNav_CustomerCare&catalogId=23503&langId=-1http://www.amazon.co.uk/b?ie=UTF8&node=345146031http://www.fossil.com/wcsstore/Fossil/html/en_US/sizeguide/watches.htmlFind...
In case there is any doubt - the worlds thinnest watches:   Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon - 4.8 mm   Vacheron Constantin Calibre 1731 - 3.9 mm   Piaget Altiplano 900P - 3.65 mm   Arnold & Son Ultra Thin Tourbillon Escapement - 2.97 mm   http://www.watchtime.com/blog/5-record-setting-ultra-thin-watches/   5mm is an ultra-thin.
 5mm is an ultra thin.  You have been consistently wrong on this point.  The very thinnest watches (which are also in the 5 figure range) are in the 3mm-4mm range. The Piaget Altiplano is 4mm in diameter and 3mm thick and is the thinnest watch in the world with mechanical movement and lists for $33,000.  The Jules Audemar Extra Thin is 6mm thick. What he quotes is correct.
 The large majority of $350 watches are quartz watches with batteries.  Even the eco-drive ones.  It is not that likely in several decades you'll find that kind of replacement battery anymore.  Automatics and manual will last several decades...if replacement parts are available and you regularly service it. 25-30 years is the rule of thumb for quartz watches with jeweled movements with some notable exceptions like the Grand Seiko who's first service is recommended at 50...
 Yes, it's glitchy at times which is why it's on a demo loop.  It's far less glitchy than the iPhone was where Jobs had multiple phones around because it would crash when it ran out of memory. The security is that it's on your arm.  There's no real need for a lock unlike a phone.  When you remove it from your arm it probably locks until you unlock it from the paired phone for anything that needs to be secure.  It's attached to your wrist and it's for doodles.  There's not...
 Do you like being consistently wrong?  Job's demo was completely on rails. "It’s hard to overstate the gamble Jobs took when he decided to unveil the iPhone back in January 2007. Not only was he introducing a new kind of phone — something Apple had never made before — he was doing so with a prototype that barely worked.... The iPhone could play a section of a song or a video, but it couldn’t play an entire clip reliably without crashing. It worked fine if you sent an...
 Tim looks pretty buff in this picture...
 It exports haggis but not to the US.  Sheep lung is evidently not a food item for humans.  Not sure I disagree...
 They aren't scrapped...they are made into android phones.  ;)
 This: "If manufacturing is stuck at 60-65 million units per quarter then that's the limit to Apple's sales... for ever and ever... unless Cook can figure out this problem." Is clearly a false statement.  The fact that you agree that the supply constraints get larger also makes that a false statement because obviously they are increasing manufacturing capability every year and they are not "stuck" And having supply constraints at launch is non-issue because it means that...
