What a crock of shit. Apple made Apple Watch Edition out of GOLD!
They clearly don't give a fuck about perception and the low-IQ Andy Warhol's quotes.
iPhone Edition in $2000 to $3000 range is a real possibility. If I could bet on it, I'd do it.

"Pricing on the original Apple Watch Edition collection started at $10,000 and went as high as $17,000"
But yeah, same coke as the president drinks.
The only counter-argument is the gold watch sold for shit and no one bought it. So we're not as dumb as fuck as it might seem - $17k Gold -> $1k Ceramic is probably the right business move. For a consumable that will be dead in a few years and not a Rolex.

To Be Fair:
>Watches, in general, have never been like Coke. There have always been low-cost watches and luxury watches.
As there are and have been cheap phones and luxury phones.

How the fuck is a watch more personal than a phone? My phone is in my hands all the time and I touch it / use it way more than my watch.
Gruber's become a total tard.
Someone save this for future chowder.

He referenced the Warhol quote [here](http://daringfireball.net/2003/10/dells_dud) in a 2003 post about the iPod, but then we ended up with Minis and Nanos and Classics and Shuffles, so I'm not sure how that squares. Also, while the iPhone 5C wasn't "significantly" less expensive, it was still cheaper and inferior to the 6, and Coke doesn't do that either.

>Apple is not going to make a special edition of any product — let alone the iPhone, their most important product
*cough* iPhone SE *cough*
How is Gruber this stupid?

webOS & BB10 Forever:
Based upon Apple's history, any anniversary version of any of its products was not truly special. For Apple, the first product of its kind (e.g.- Macintosh 128K, iPod, iPhone, iPad) is the truly significant one. Still, I will celebrate the 10th anniversary by buying an iPhone 8 (or 8 Plus), which will replace the 6 Plus I am currently using.
