IF true, these screen shots show the system being used as 'Quanta'. My inner geek wanted to know ... "I got-tsa know!" (ref 1st dirty harry movie... for the youngsters... bing dirty harry... )
They do 3d modeling....
Good point but then the correct way to handle it would be to put lower res images in the main article and then links at the bottom to much higher res pics for the people who want to look at it in finer detail. The way it is setup now is bad for everyone esp those of us on mobile.
I say take a deep breath and wait till tomorrow.
I hear ya...photos on this site take FOREVER to load on this site. I'm on a connection getting a 400mbps download and they still load at least 10-20 seconds after the page loads.
While I understand your frustration, please understand that there are two connections at play: your connection (which has a high download speed, and is only one connection) and AI's connection (which is more than likely a shared connection with thousands of individual connections all pummeling their server).
That said, some basic optimizations is something they should have done to make sure page loads are as fast as possible.
--- Slight Addendum ---
Ok, after reviewing the images, there is no reason a PNG that is basically 660 x 1000 pixels should ever e used when the displayed version of it is much smaller. They could have optimized the hell out of it, and been a lot more net friendly about the situation.
Still, I think it is still needed to be mentioned that while your download speeds may be awesome, AI's upload speed may not be for the thousands of connections, especially pre-Keynote.

Maybe, actually a good possibility. However people are missing one thing here. Big pictures make zooming in viable. If you want to see detail you can.

Nothing to see here folks...
Oh I didn't know you already saw the final iWatch?
Honestly everyone should wait 24 hours before freaking out (one way or the other).

Round screen is stupid and non functional for a computer. I want a wrist computer, not a watch. If I want a watch, I buy a watch. The best wrist computer until now is that Samsung Gear they show the other day. I hope Apple makes a square one. Would you want a round screen for your desktop monitor? http://media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/13256/13427466_1.jpg?v=8CF3C5C70B7A2B0
¡¡ Leaked !! Apple's first smart-watch.
Obviously! /s (fixed that for you)

This is ridiculous. How incompetent are we that we cannot optimize images so that a page can load properly?
I'm running the latest Safari on a fast Mac with 110 Mbps download speed and 9 ms PING.
And this page is still loading. What a joke.

The iWatch is obviously a rip-off of whatever Samsung watch looks the most like it. And there's a whole lot a prior art that proves it's not innovative. Google has had something just like it in the lab for years.
I'm predicting the high end version will have a round face. The every day wear version could be square. Though, of course, that would complicate the API. LOL! This prediction business is rough! Rough, I tell ya!
According to Wikipedia, Kapton (a word form the second image) is used in flexible printed circuits. So maybe it will be bendy after all?
Interesting looking, but the ability to tell time is completely defeated with all of that extraneous visual clutter...
