This kind of proves the point about the Apple image
I don't think this is ushering in some new era of "wearable" acceptance - rather, it is proving that there could be an Apple iDoorstop for $300 and people will get in line for it and it will sell out.
Bravo to Apple for making themselves a status symbol. Just don't read too much into the technological ramifications of this. Also, keep in mind that they analyzed less than 1% of orders, so I am not sure this data is all that reliable. However, 1 million watches out of 350 million people is .35% - hardly a game changer. A million is not as big as it used to be when there are 7 billion people on the planet and we measure national debts and budgets in trillions.
