@saileshkrish nudge us to buy 64GB version; 16GB is the roofless second class car@grayj_ I meant the watches as we know it, the ones if we paid $350, we hold on to it for more than 18 months@KyleGeiste @PradSam disrupt!! Where is the uber for sign spinner?If Apple watch is going to cost $1200, the real watchmakers are going to move far higher from their current price points@WSJ @peterthiel he assumes value is limited and it's a zero sum game and paints a narrow view of economists16GB, 64GB or 128GB. They could've easily given you 32GB instead of 16GB. But they chose not to.May be @mims can write a takedown of this in @wsj http://t.co/FUxYPRl1B9 Where Thiel portrays all economists as clueless and out of touchWhen we buy Apple Watch we an all say and mean, "My time and my money go to Infinite Loop"@BenedictEvans @gavinmcgarry then IPod sales had meaningful impact on profit even at low numbers. now the scale is differentI guess when you'vesocial media pulpit and attentive audience you can attribute to others whatever wrong beliefs and go on to dismantle it@campione more like witchcraft reasons@chetansharma and 100% of us fans for not rejecting this sport yetHer Thiel attributes to all economists something only a novice may believe and gives his homilies http://t.co/gp4PRLOIR4

@zachdillon $200 for a shirt? what do they take me for?Why do we assume for trucks are gourmet and are willing to pay higher prices?These days watches have just one use case - conspicuous consumption. Does the Apple watch satisfy that better than any other alternative?@PicturesEarth @PradSam but we judge them by the descriptions that likely have biases
@zachdillon I'll raise you - like iPhone 1 price drop expect one before launch time@zachdillon please do and help them come down the cost curve and still make their 60% gross margin on $99 price tag and I can buy itPenny costs 1.6 pennies to make http://t.co/Iain4o13c0 They make it up in volume i betNPR listener writes to tell them their question to luddites posed on twitter has severe sampling bias@zachdillon crown? isn't the track wheel of BB? nice rebranding@steve_phillpott Data drive decisions. Today, one fewer decision to make - whether or not to store all that data #longlivedataYou see, Amazon will grab market share with 99cent Fire phone and can easily turn on profit spigot by increasing price later #notData dredging #bs from @qz to squeeze out last bit of page views before Apple event http://t.co/e1GN7lzEaq
