 That's precisely my point too! I don't care if somebody is the most famous celebrity in the world, or if somebody is the poorest person in the world, if they want the best consumer tech product, then there's only one choice, and that's Apple! Apple doesn't need to buy favor from anybody! This is beneath them, IMO. And the sad part is that they don't even need to do it! I could understand Samsung or any other countless number of companies doing this to promote their crap...
I know a douchebag move when I see one, and nope, that doesn't make me an android customer. What's next? Are you going to accuse me of being a Fandroid?  
 The link is my post.
 Yes, I know all about that. That's old news. Apple has done this in the past, on a few very rare occasions, with the Macintosh also I remember. That was in the Steve Jobs book. I don't find that to be comparable at all to the current level that we're currently seeing with the Apple Watch.
I don't mean that I would cancel it if my next door neighbor got theirs delivered 10 minutes before mine.  But if I noticed some "celebrity", smiling and posing on twitter with one months before I could even pre-order it, then hell yeah, that would definitely factor in to my decision, because the Apple that I once knew, would exist no longer, and Apple would be giving the finger to all loyal customers such as myself. Like I said earlier, this watch is not even a big deal...
I don't do lines anymore. I've done that before, so no need to do that anymore. If there's any product that I would want, then I would just preorder it online as soon as it were available.
 I agree. It's a douchebag move. I don't even care that much about the Apple Watch, since I haven't ordered one, but I don't like the negative trend and douchebaggyness that I'm seeing here with this launch, and I just hope that mentality wont spread and infect other Apple products also.
I am sitting. You're right about one thing at least. I don't know much about marketing, and I've never claimed to know much about marketing. It's not my field. What I do know is perception, and I'm just stating my thoughts on the topic. I hope that this is not the beginning of some new trend, or a shift in Apple, where a certain crowd will be given early access or even free access to many other Apple products in the future. I don't give a crap who they are. Beyonce, Karl...
If true, then that makes it even worse. But I'd like to see a source or confirmation for those claims.
 I'm no troll, but I would agree with any troll who uses that argument, because if the celebrities have to be given one for free, then they're not exactly honestly endorsing the product.
