I get it. Lots of people here are angry because some of us are getting Watches tomorrow (including some in the May and June windows) while others aren't, even though they are in the 4/24-5/8 window. The point of this thread is to discuss what, specifically, Apple could have done differently to keep all sides happy. Here are some alternatives I can think of. 1) Should they have thrown caution to the wind, produced massive quantities of every watch model in advance, and had them all in stores? The upside is we could have had a "traditional" launch. The downside is that they would have had a lot of excess stock. It seems they overestimated demand for the white and blue sport bands as it is. 2) Should they produced a bunch of Sport watches for in store purchase on the 24th, figuring the techie crowd who wants everything on Day 1 would be skewed to the cheapest versions anyway, and relied on pre-orders for the pricier ones? There's somewhat less risk than alternative 1) (though they would still have had the issue with the blue sport band), but we'd probably have a lot of people angry that stainless steel buyers were getting "shafted" in the process. 3) Should they have accepted pre-orders for a longer period of time in advance of the formal launch? They may have gotten more accurate numbers for pre-production, but then they might have gotten a lot more cancellations because of the drawn out process. 4) Should they have delayed the launch even further until they got all their production and supply issues sorted? We're already at the end of "Early 2015." Any other ideas?
