“If you ordered early and fast, chances are you finally got that little Apple wonder for your wrist. But if you didn’t order right away on April 10, you’re going to be cooling your jets… because you’re not getting it anytime soon,” Neil Cavuto writes for FOXBusiness. “And that supremely bugs me on the customer service front. Because I think Apple is handling this whole watch rollout badly … very badly.”
“And getting the watch late isn’t what bugs me. All these stars — like Pharrell and Drake and Beyonce and Anna Wintour — getting them early, and likely for free … that really bugs me,” Cavuto writes. “Apple’s practically shouting, ‘They’re cool, and the rest of you, particularly you, Neil, are not. You chill. Because you’re a chump.’”
MacDailyNews Take: Now, to be fair, Neil, this is only because you are a chump. A really, supremely bugged chump. Who needs to chill.
(Our Apple Watches are awesome, by the way!)
“Good luck nabbing one of these things quickly, or easily. You can’t just walk into an Apple store and get one,” Cavuto writes. “You have to set up an appointment, and order online again, to have them send it to your home. Let’s just say it’s confusing.”
MacDailyNews Take: Ordeing something online and having it shipped to your doorstep. Sooo confusing!
“And the more I see these Hollywood and music-mogul types donning these damn things on their wrists, the more I want to get my hands wrapped around their throats,” Cavuto writes. “It’s like their shoving their preferred status in our faces. And I’m not even talking Drake … I’m talking those dregs at Apple.”

MacDailyNews Take: As we wrote on March 12th:
All of these articles about how poor you are for being incensed over Apple Watch Edition’s price or how big of a douchebag you have to be to buy one are doing Apple Watch’s marketing, product positioning, and market segmentation for Apple gratis.
As we explained last month: The $17,000 Apple Watch Edition vastly separates Apple Watch from the stupidwatches. Editions are mobile billboards and perpetual interest-generators for Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport that also elevate the perception of quality for both of those models.
Apple is brilliant. These gorgeous 18-karat gold Apple Watch Editions will begin showing up on the wrists of celebrities, famous athletes, and captains of industry very soon. And they will influence the rest of the world to lust after Apple Watch, too. And, here’s more Apple brilliance, unlike a $51,500 Piaget watch, your average Joe and Jane… will actually be able to partake in the same exact user experience with the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport. — SteveJack, MacDailyNews, March 9, 2015
