My goodness. Standardization is not evil. I have to think long and hard about replacing an electric drill because all the battery packs are proprietary. What nonsense. A common charging standard, just like a common data transmission standard seems a no brainer. Travel a bit and you will find the USA does not have a monopoly on the best way to do everything.

Who doesn't have alerts setup on CC accounts that notify you when charges are made? Did they use "1111" as the PIN for the watch? Did they ignore every best practice for keeping your information secure? When does "theft" become negligence on the victim's part?
Unlimited credit limit? Sounds like they have more money than brains. I know AMEX and most banks are very cautious of unusual activity. Something is fishy.
It's also possible that someone saw them put in a PIN on their Watch or iPhone previously. Regardless, the Watch with Wallet is a weak point in security so people need to take more precautions so these things are less likely to happen. (Note that I wrote less likely, not impossible—these things will still happen.)
I am one of the guys that simply does not NEED the new Studio, but I wouldn't mind having one. I have a decent , souped up, 2019 21" iMac that does all I need. But... that price differential between a loaded M1 iMac and the Base Studio is not that significant. If I had a decent monitor, I'd opt for the Studio instead of the iMac, even though it is grotesque overkill for my emailing, web surfing, butt.
Those guys lamenting the lack of internal expansion slots seem to really be missing the boat to me. I GUARANTEE you some one (OWC ?) is working on an esthetically complimentary expansion chassis as we speak. One more small "box" connected via Thunderbolt and you have all the hardware you could possibly need.
Too bad I can't use my iMac as a SUPPORTED monitor. If I could, I'd order me a Studio just to play with it.

What difference does the form of payment make? Change the transaction type from Zelle to Apple Pay to cashier's check to cash. You'd have the same end result. Problem has nothing to do with Zelle.
