    "Apple is apparently concerned with the Apple Watch launch mess it created: For the first time ever, one of its products won’t even be available for purchase on the one day it should start selling in stores, one MacRumors reader found out, after personally emailing Tim Cook. And Apple is apparently looking for a fix for that on top of trying to ship your Apple Watch earlier than that annoying June estimate you may have received."

    Guess I should have added my usual "not necessarily my opinion" disclaimer. I, often, post interesting articles I find which may not be my personal beliefs. My intended purpose is just to open it up for discussion. I almost forgot how sensitive we (Apple Fans) can be. Yes, that sometimes includes me too ; )

    Debacle? Hardly.

    Apple sold > 1M watches in the pre-order before anyone even touched the watch. Orders are still coming in and on the 24th more people will come to the stores to try on and order a watch. Sure seems like they have successfully launched a product that they don't have a lot of stock of and didn't know how great the demand would be in the beginning.

    Looks like the BGR article Yahoo's using overdramatized my point.

    Yes, it does appear as though they went over board a bit.
    But, I'm glad that you took the initiative to email Cook.

    Moving out of Range as the Messenger

    The topic I chose merely reflected the information found in the article.
    There is definitely some validity in the points your made.

    Yes, surprisingly enough, they are still around.
    Not so sure they are always a good source for news but . . .

    Oh, there are quite a few folks out there with yahoo email addresses too :0
