    Would Steve Jobs have signed off on the Apple Watch in its current format?

    Take the million, give it to charity. Then ask yourself why you're so emotional about Steve Jobs.

    I think you need a new user name as that's just bad juju.

    Amazes me that people can't have a civil conversation on a discussion forum.

    I think he would have signed off on it but the rumored Apple TV or service would have been a higher priority. I agree the TV experience is mostly broken. Obviously, Apple does well in these areas.

    Do you even know what gold plated means? Apple Watch Edition is solid gold.

    I'm not trying to be mean, but if you already had an opinion then why didn't you just give it and let the forum react to it.

    However, to be honest, it's a question that has been asked umpteenth times on these boards and it's an answer none of us will ever know (obviously) so why even bring it up?

    I think he would have.

    I also don't think it matters because his reign at Apple has ended.

    I think he'd be very pleased that there are still innovative, creative people at the helm.

    He presided over some flops, too. It happens.

    The only way you can avoid flops is never to create anything new.

    Clearly, that's not how Apple operates.

    Honestly who cares? I was a big fan of Steve Jobs Apple but we are in a new era and I am still enjoying being an Apple fan. I don't really care what Steve would have done or would do different.

    Because I am open-minded and take other people's input into the equation. Didn't want my opinion up front to muddy the feedback. The reason I asked it now was for 2 reasons: 1) we now know most if not all of the details of the watch. 2) IF this flops, then the after effects will be far reaching.

    I think he will love the form, the band and the OS but he might have some inputs of his own.

    I could see him wearing black SS with black band on stage. :p

    Know, I'm not. You were alluding that the Apple Watch Edition is gold plated and I was saying it's not. Gold plated means there's only a thin layer of gold on the outside. Apple Watch is solid.

    One of the features originally planned for the iWatch (as it was called back then) was, in fact, the ability to manipulate time. Only you couldn't actually go back in time, all you could do was call people exactly 10.09 years ago (which is, not coincidentally, why Apple always shows their watches displaying that time).

    Anyway, long story short, Tim Cook (his real name is Time Cooke for those who aren't 'in the know') asked Steve Jobs what he thought, and he didn't like it. He said the time machine feature was half-baked, and said it should be left off until the Apple Watch 2T (T's having replaced S's for the spec-upgrade models in 2017).

    Then Steve Jobs blocked Tim Cook's number, so we'll never know what he thought about anything else and we should just stop asking.

    Hey, it's no sillier than constantly asking what a dead guy thinks about the newest tech gadget...

    Don't be daft, you are not supposed to wear iPods.
    On the other had, watches, rings, bracelets, neckless etc are known to be made on all sorts of materials, including precious ones like gold or diamond. Surely some people who have more money then sense may dress phones and other things on gold, but that's very rare.

    He would have tossed it in the fish tank and said see those bubbles, there is air in there, so make it thinner, and why the **** isn't it waterproof:D
