    As Apple Watch edges closer to release, it appears Apple is releasing sample units to high profile personalities, with Pharrell Williams being among the first.
    Details and video can be seen here:

    After a twinge of envy, I became a little "put off" by Apple's decision if it's true.
    I don't like "class distinctions" of any sort and this appears to be right along those lines. I suppose I shouldn't be bothered by this but I am for now. I'm sure I'll get over it in a day or two :eek:

    Any one else care to share their thoughts?

    While you and others may disagree, from a marketing point of view it makes sense as it adds to the 'cool' factor.
