Does not interest me at all.  I'm sure it'll be a big hit though.

OMG it's really expensive. $349

About 2 minutes ago I was going to pre-order two of them. Now... not sure.

Lulz. An iPad is more affordable than an Apple Watch. And it won't be ready for the holiday? Ball = dropped.

Investors loving Apple Pay. The watch? Not so much.

From my experience watching the market, anyone buying/selling Apple stock based on product rumours or product announcements is unlikely to make money.

Indeed. Saw something this morning that AAPL on average returns 23% in the 6 months following a new iPhone announcement. Always fun to watch the real time reactions though.

I don't see how apple isn't a buy right now for mid to long term.

What are the reasons for needing this watch?  I missed the blog due to work.

Cause it has a picture with an apple with a bite out of it on it.

It comes in sweet colors!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

It tells time with atomic clock precision (because it syncs with one).

Not selling them this year is not a ball-dropping move. It's strategic. Their customers will invest heavily in the new phones. then, next year, the watch will hit the streets. This ensures two amazing quarters for Apple. In the mean time, developers who were not in on the early access program for the AppleWatch will be able to develop for it increasing the number of apps to what will likely be an impressive amount.

AppleWatches will be on more than half of the major hollywood stars at the Oscars. People will flood to them.

People scoffed at the iPod.
