I'm with you, re: RAM. It would be nice if several (heavy duty) Apps could stay in memory, instead of essentially restarting, when I switch between then (notably games). Going back to 16GB, oanother reason Apple may continue to offer this is that it let's them advertise a lower price, which is probably effective in attracting customers, who then end up buying the 32GB model anyway. Thus even if they don't sell so many, the 16GB devices still play a role in driving sales....
What is it people have against "choice". Apple does make iPhones with more storage, and yet obviously sell enough of the 16GB models to warrant keeping them.  Equally, Apple does sell notebooks with more ports, etc. ... the new MacBook is for those customers who value different features than what those offer. I can't tell you the last time I needed more than one port (plus power) ... but I do value low weight and a great keyboard/screen experience. So for some of us, Apple...
This is very good news ... I was a bit worried Philips would take the more arrogant "we were here first, so use our interface" stance. I also love my Hue, and this means I extend the use of Hue bulbs through my entire house.
  Nothing is free. You can either pay up the price of a latte or two, or sell yourself to advertisers. This always reminds me of people who thinks subsidised phones are free.
Apple's iPhone has been "in" for many years now. I can think of few stronger "foundations" than being the best at selling a high-quantity, high margin product with the fastest upgrade cycle of any technology product. Apple's ecosystem makes it sticky, so it's not going to collapse overnight. The watch, Mac, MacBooks, iPad, Apple TV have much of their value in creating that ecosystem (i.e. in addition the revenue they contribute individually). It's tough to get used to the...
People get the phone subsidised, not the watch. I suspect watch buying patterns to be more like the iPad, and since the "compute power" is less of an issue with the watch, doubt Apple will feel the need to update as often as iPad. I don't really care, one way or the other, I just think people assuming an annual update cycle might be disappointed. Just can't wait for my stainless steel with leather loop to arrive! What I do envision is Apple steadily introducing new straps,...
Well, I'd say 2 at the earliest. This is as much jewellery as it is tech, and I think buyers will be put off if their investment goes out of fashion too quickly. People paying 1K for a watch expect to wear it for a while before feeling the have to replace it. I could imagine a "tech update" coming sooner, perhaps, where they up the CPU and battery life, but keep the look unchanged ... but I still see that being 2 years out. Also Apple has often taken an "eternity" to...
I said "a peak" ... just one of many to come ;-)
One hopes. I also think people (and the street) are going to be disappointed if they expect iPhone-like revisions for the watch. My hunch is it'll be more like 3 years before we see a revision, maybe a little sooner if the competition really heats up.
 Indeed. It's also not surprising to see some profit taking (and hence drops in price) when the stock hit's a peak.
