 The K1 is not designed for a phone but tablets.  A fairly beefy ones at that. And Chromebooks.  Total performance of the package tends to lead to impacts on total user experience.   Both are powerful chips that provide a good user experience.  This is not a controversial statement. The K1 performs well and has advantages in gaming with dx12 and UE4 support.  The A8X performs well and has advantages in gaming with Metal.
 So you can compare clock speeds of an intel x86 Atom CPU with an Intel x86 Core CPU with an Intel x86 Celeron CPU?   Interesting. Adjusting for baseline clock speeds is no more valid for comparing the K1 with the A8 than it is for comparing "same architecture" x86 CPUs.  The designs are different and emphasize different aspects.  Mmm...I think they meant non-Apple designs.  Ie vs Snapdragon.  They are not competing for design wins vs Apple's chips.  The nVidia propaganda...
Android's parents is Java.  Moving from desktop java apps to Android isn't that hard.
 Because if you take just half of that 10M number (aka 5M) and multiply by $349 that $1.75B in revenue. Calling $1.75B in annual revenue with Apple's expected gross margins a "failure" is idiocy.  That's nearly double that of the aTV which is not really a hobby anymore at $1B in annual revenue (2013). 10M unit would be a roaring success at $3.4B annual revenue and approximately $1B gross margin.  That's more than the iPod generates. I don't expect to see 10M unit sales in...
 Not when the term is incorrect.  Apple calls it a SIP.  Everyone else calls it a SIP.  Including AppleInsider.  CoC is stupid, especially since SoC means the same thing: computer SYSTEM on a chip. "Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your...
 CoC is not a term (okay, it is a term but it means chip on chip).  Even if it was it's not a computer on a chip anyway.  It's a SIP or System In Package.  There are multiple chips in the package that compose the S1 and the whole thing is filled with resin to make one package.   And SoC is a computer system on a chip.  Which the S1 isn't.  Because it's not one chip.
 And George W. Bush went to Yale and Harvard Business School...mmm....and Obama from Harvard law... Attended top end schools, yes.  Smarter than being given credit for?  Mmmmaybe.
 All the examples cited (iPad or apple watch) are different model/sku based on the same metrics:  appearance or size.  Just changing the color choice results in a different model/sku. For example the gold and space gray versions of the exact same iPad have different sku and model numbers.    Nope.  But Apple is acting no differently in this case than they do with all the other products.  The core products themselves are very very focused and options very regimented. Sure,...
 Yes, but as you say, these aren't the demographics that buy expensive stuff but the families with mid six figure incomes, little savings and 3 months from bankruptcy if their income ever wavers.
 It's a single product in two sizes: 38mm & 42mm and four color choices: ALU, SS, Space Black SS, Gold, Rose Gold and a bevy of bands. Like the latest iPads are a single product in two sizes, three color choices and a bevy of covers.
