    iWatch

    Pros who have studied the numbers believe that EVEN IF the iWatch is a rip roaring success it will barely move the needle. Is this something considered reviewer's believe to be true?

    • yes will take more than iwatch to move apple needle. iwatch may or may not be hit with everyone but will have niche. plus apple overdo for dud. this could be it. not everyone like to wear watch. not coming until fall so long way off.

    • "Pros"? Really? Are you referring to our beloved analysts who predict $350 when the price falls but suddenyl $650 when the price rises again? And then of course - when the price falls again the target is once more lowered?

      Those are not "pros", they are trend followers. That's what analysts basically do all day. Look at the chart and guess what the course will do in the very near term future. Basically the same as traders - altough they get paid just for running their stupid mouths - so they usually don't have to risk their own money.

      Except for when they manipulate the market with badmouthing a company or praising it to the heavens above...

    • Here is what the lead analyst for for Morgan Stanley had to say about the iWatch adding more than $12 billion to Apple's revenue. Does that sound like it "will barely move the needle"?

      Katy Huberty, an analyst at Morgan Stanley, said in a research note to investors that she believes the iWatch could beat even the iPad’s debut sales of $12 billion. She says the reasoning behind her confidence in the iWatch is that it is being positioned and marketed as a “natural accessory” to the company’s other iOS devices, such as the iPad and iPhone, rather than debuting in a completely new product category that consumers are unfamiliar with and don’t yet know how best to utilize.

    • Pros? WHAT pros?????? ur a moron.

    • The I-watch will be symbolic.....Like the Firebird was for Pontiac. Pontiac never made a dime on the Firebird, but it generated a buzz of cool for the brand and payed off for GM. It will also show again that anything Samsung does, Apple can do 10x better....which always helps. Apple TV will be much bigger, because I think Apple is headed into "gaming" and "transactions".....So it won't be too long before people start talking about "Apple Casino".....Yes, On-line Gambling. It's coming, and Apple needs to be a major player.....and Apple customers have lots of money. Apple's next BIG thing will be the bigger screen 6 phones......and the reoccuring revenue that Apple will be able to harvest from the hundreds of millions who buy them. China alone will buy 30 million of them in the first 120 days. Apple should light a fire and get the 6 phones out by the end of June. Apple also needs to get into credit cards. Either partner with American Express....or buy American Express.

    • think about it......ipay with my i watch

    • phones without keyboard will never take off.
