My awesome experience at the Apple Store
Apple's well known for its great customer support, and yesterday I got to witness it for myself. My iPhone 6's camera lens had cracked after a small drop, and when I took it in I was expecting to see a hefty bill at the end.

What happened next left me surprised, happy, and reinforced what I love about Apple: great customer support.

If their name has value that can be "abused", whence came that value?

Companies certainly do rest on brand, but it is not sustainable.  Apple have been accused of this for decades - which simply means you are naive for not recognizing value.  

Whether the value proposition is a good one from your perspective is not relevant - they have customers who (continue to) find Apple products a good value.

About a month ago, we got word that luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer was beginning to develop a high-end Android Wear smartwatch, though details were scarce when we first heard the news.

I think there are too many problems with a cellular Watch to expect it any time soon. Calls will be public unless you have Bluetooth headphones, you can't type or do any significant smartphone tasks (e.g. Facebook), and even if you just limit it to data (like the iPad), you'll need to solve the space problems of the SIM card (solvable with a software SIM) and the larger battery required (which I don't think is solvable any time soon).

And unlike in 2001, I don't think there's going to be any one hub. iCloud is a hub for data, the Apple TV appears set to be the hub for HomeKit, AirPort/Time Capsule is the home network hub, iPhone is the communication hub.

I do see the Watch as being a big piece in all of this, and Siri and iCloud being the key elements that tie all of these things together.

But no matter what happens, one thing is obvious: things are only just getting started.

+Randy Fox Well, it seems you get to be angry because of a perceived "putting words into your mouth", yet you did the exact same thing when you tried to imply my comment was meant to include email.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

"But I am done (as others earlier in this post) arguing with someone who doesn't recognize anyone else's opinions as possibly being valid."

Who's putting words into whose mouth now?

I've stated repeatedly (to that other guy) that his dissenting opinion is fine. But that it's his, and to keep that in mind.

"But email!" is valid for people who require that a watch be good for email.

But it's a straw man because no one is claiming that it is good for email.

It's not a rebuttal. It's merely an example of a task for which the Watch isn't good for. But as no one is claiming that there aren't such tasks, it's an empty argument.

Go Paperless

Stats say that every human living in an industrial nation uses about 20,000 kg paper in his life.

"Through a new project announced today, WWF and Apple will help China - the world’s largest producer and consumer of paper products - reduce its environmental footprint by producing paper products from responsibly managed forests within its own borders."

If they can get arguably the world's largest polluter to do something more sustainable and stop telling Americans (who, BTW, have reduced pollution by staggering amounts over the past 4 decades) that we're the cause of the world's problems then great!

OMG

Microsoft's iOS app OneDrive was updated on May 6, 2015, with this description of the new innovative features:

Improvements to image quality and performance on Apple Watch.
If you have a new Apple Watch, you can enjoy your OneDrive photos right from your wrist!

My high resolution photos taken with an iSight camera displayed on a screen size near to the size of a postage stamp.

That's what I was looking for since years.

Well, at the end of the day everything we like (including JLaw) is a matter of imagination.

So feel free to download my collage and view JLaw right on your wrist.

Note
Dear developers, think twice about the usefulness of your application on a 1.5" screen size. Here is a noteworthy document for you.

Good points +Randy Fox.
The next battery change for my 150$ Certina watch is in 2017 :)
I still use my iPhone 4S intensively but I will switch to the 6S Plus this year. The 4S screen is too small.

Consumer Reports take the Apple Watch through its paces.
 
Consumer Reports:
"Apple Watch, with its sapphire crystal face, was a standout in this test... survived a number 9 Mohs pick (just below diamond hardness) and earned an excellent score."
The folks at Consumer Reports showed they are very impartial  when it comes to reviewing Apple products after refusing to recommend the iPhone 4 back in 2010. As a result, one can expect an unbiase...

Our Environment

Although CA, the epicenter of technology and Apple's habitat, is suffering from water shortage there are still climate change deniers and I hope they go the dodo bird's way.

Do you remember Tim Cook's call for climate change deniers at the annual shareholder meeting in 2014?

If you only want me to make things, make decisions that have a clear ROI, then you should get out of the stock.

Greenhouse gas emissions have an impact on the planet’s balance of land, ocean, and air temperature. Most of Apple’s corporate greenhouse gas emissions come from the production, transport, use, and recycling of its products.

Apple seeks to minimize greenhouse gas emissions by setting stringent design-related goals for material and energy efficiency. The charts (source Apple) provide the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the iPhone 3G and the 5S over its life cycle. Apple put the focus on reducing emissions during customer use which usually is a quite long time of 3 years according to Apple.

No one spends more time with an Apple product than an Apple customer. By minimizing or outright eliminating many harmful toxins, Apple ensures that each product is safe to use, year after year. Power cords are PVC- and phthalate-free, touch screens are arsenic-free, cases and enclosures are BFR-free. No other company does more to keep its products free of so many toxins like Apple and the company does it already since decades. So it's not only better for the people who use the products but also better for the people who make them and better for the environment.

The new benchmark ...

I'm waiting for a benchmark test of the new HQs in Cupertino (under construction/Apple), Mountain View (announced/Google), Seattle (announced/Amazon), and Menlo Park (finished/Facebook) as well as a comparison of the environmental initiatives of other industry giants.

It's not about a company's performance or stock value it's about the efforts to keep our planet blue.

Note
Come on China! Growth is one side of the coin. The other side is to keep people healthy and ensure dignified lives.

Designed by Apple in California

is what you find on the backside of your iOS devices.

Apple's philosophy of hardware and software design clearly states that

Everything needs some custom artwork.

Top designed products increase desirability and desirability always goes along with profitability.

Apple has always been proud of the fact that it's an American company and more specifically, a major force in the growth of Silicon Valley that for decades has been and still remains the EPICENTER of all things tech and, with Apple's Industrial Design Group it will also continue to be a major tech design center well into the future.

It's not only the design made by Apple's IDg, it's everything, hardware, operating systems, software, and services.

Many big companies are diversified and cover lots of completely different markets. Apple doesn't, the company focusses on a straightforward set of products and services with a clearly defined target:

Bring it all together.

Following Steve Jobs' and Tim Cook's philosophy to offer the best products it's obvious that product design also has to be outstanding.

See these quotes of the founder of an admired German company which business philosophy is similar to that of Apple.

Design must be functional, and functionality must be translated into visual aesthetics without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.

A formally harmonious product needs no decoration; it should be elevated through pure form.

(Ferdinand Porsche)

These beliefs can not only be found in Porsche cars and other Porsche designed products but also in many products designed by Apple in California.
