Apple Watch Sales and Headline Grabbing Idiots

When I saw the headline that Apple Watch sales were “down 90% from launch,” I assumed it was a poorly-researched attempt to grab attention. And guess what: it is. (Eye roll.

A Golden Day for Apple

Today’s Apple media event wasn’t specifically about gold, but you couldn’t escape it. From the $10,000+ gold Apple Watch Edition to the new gold-colored, redesigned MacBook, Apple made a point of demonstrating just why these products should command your interest and your money.
