iWatch, iHub from the Glog
This is the first I've heard of the apple watch being more than a watch and being the key to every other tech they do, and I think it's spot-on. The watch supports Apple Pay without requiring TouchID from day one, so I assume many other applications like that will follow.

Apple, America and a Squeezed Middle Class -
Why Apple doesn't make iPhones in the USA. Kind of depressing really, with 10% unemployment and claims there aren't enough people to do the work here. Why not produce laptops or desktops here if iPhones/iPads need to be sourced in China?

Maniacal Rage: Reading post
Even as an end user only, the App store reviews remind me of YouTube comments. Super snarky, obnoxious, everything is either 1 star worst ever or 5 star best ever with little intelligent comments in between. It's odd for an apple product to be designed in a way that encourages that kind of behavior
