Android is bleeding already from Apple and has to defend itself for the next Apple product release.
Credit card companies want an easy out for their constant woes. So do retailers. They found it. It's better and cheaper than imbedded chips.
Then you will be surprised when it does work.
No I don't wear a watch or any jewelry. Can't stand the feel. But I still might buy and wear the watch. Especially if it becomes a life saving device. A trapped under his truck trucker could have used one last winter. Fortunately for him, he was able to activate his cellphone from his dispatcher's call. Otherwise, he would have froze to death. The watch could have come in handy. There's been cases where people here were trapped in their off the road cars for many days without detection. They could have used the watch too. If I fall, it could come in handy. Besides, if Apple Pay works with my 5S, I'll probably buy one for the credit card security. My information has been hacked far too many times.
Except for one downgrade, analysts are upping their price targets. Just about everyone likes or loves the watch. But many are underestimating the value of Apple Pay. Oh yes, love the phones too. So what negative buzz do you hear. Maybe it's a bee up your ear that you are hearing.
People have been waiting for something decent to buy. Apple watch is that product that they will want. The price maybe a little steep for some, but the price will be OK for most.
Who said that it was Russians? Probably some short hedge fund thought it would be cute to steal passwords just before the event.
Wearable technology is expected to grow significantly in the future. It will even be implemented into the workforce. Right now only 7% of consumers own them, but it is expected to double next year to 14%. From a report:
"After fitness bands, smart watches will be the second-most popular wearable device, with 5 percent planning to purchase in the next year and a total of 23 percent planning to adopt in the next five years."
Apple watch bridges both the fitness and watch categories, the number one and two categories. I expect Apple watch to be bought 2 to every 1 from the competition until the competition starts borrowing Apple's ideas.
The government should buy a huge lot of iPhone 6 and give them away to the poor for their government free service. They need them to order their drugs, booze, and cigarettes.
No that gives the rest of the world more iPhone 6 until they can get the Chinese government approval for sale. The Chinese will just go to Hong Kong to get their new phone, like before.
PayPal is a money maker for Ebay but the analysts are playing down Apple Pay. Apple Pay will take over PayPal Apple customers. Their biggest market for their services.
