 While the headline is inaccurate,  your line above (emphasis mine) is just as inaccurate and inflammatory. They did not just throw a poll out of their ass on AI or something, this is Reuters, who know how to poll and they know what response rates are. Maybe you should practice what you preach, or at least understand how statistics actually works. It was indeed a representative sample, and has the margin of error to show you how representative it was. The margin of error...
Because 957K sounds much more precise, therefore it must be correct. /s
 I completely disagree. I have only Apple products, including a phone, an iPad and a computer. I will also be getting a watch.The iPad doesn't make all those things much better, especially over the 6+, at best it is slightly better. Of the 3 I currently have, the iPad comes in a distant 3rd in usage. The iPad is a morph of a full computer and a phone without a true dedicated purpose, that I am finding less and less useful over time. The watch will pull usage away from the...
 LOL - he actually meant they are winning in his house. And the "slighty" seemed sarcastic. Just FYI :)
Ooh! Ooh! Can we do derivatives too? :-P
 Sure I did. If I buy the SS watch $715 as opposed to the 480 I paid for the Sport. If 480 was my budget, then I have to finance the other 235 (round it down to 200 for ease of calculations.)If I cannot pay this 200 off (as in it goes on credit on top of a balance and does not get paid off), at 10% interest over 2 years, that is an additional $40 I have "spent". So lets go with your 200 and $50 numbers. So I would save $50 over 2 years, but again, only if I have enough to...
 I'm surprised you haven't gone the "cup of coffee" route, so common to sales types who try to guilt you into expanding your budget. Would I have loved to splurge for the upfront costs of an extra $235 (watch, Applecare, tax) to get the better watch? You bet your ass I would have. But I can't. I'd also love to get the top of the line MBP for the cost of a cup of coffee a day for the next 3 years, but it just don't fit when you have to pay for it all up front ... or incur...
 I'm not really arguing any point here, but my cost (with sport bands, AppleCare and tax) would have been that much (50%) more. I had already assumed I would buy another band with it, costing another $149+tax, and I'm not really in the market to spend that much. *Get the best you can afford* is the technology mantra, right? So that's what I did. :-)  @sflagel - that's pretty much my same argument.
Yeah - I wasn't trying to say the link was too big (he showed me how easy it was) just trying to show how big my wrist was compared to a fixed and known quantity so others could compare if they had been to an appointment and tried the stock watch on. :-)
 I doubt I'll scratch it, but do you really think a simple scratch will cause that much issue? I've seen people use their phones with major cracks, so I don't really foresee scratches as an issue. If they had offered a sapphire screen for an extra $100, I may have thought about it - but they didn't, so I don't have to concern myself with that. And again, I put the band and the Sport watch next to each other, and the difference didn't seem far enough off for me to worry...
