    As I wait ever so patiently for my 42mm SS BSB watch to arrive, which I'm unsure of it's date yet since it only says ships June. I can't help but to think, what will Tim Cook say about the Apple Watch during the conference. Will he comment that the demand for the watch is incredible? Far greater than what they hoped for? Will this come off as a successful product launch? How many units were sold or ordered? What positive spin will he make of this? Etc., etc., etc. Too many questions, so few answers. One thing I do know is I'll still probably be waiting for my watch on June 8th!!

    I am really hoping for an update. I am a happy watch user but there are some bugs that should be taken care of and some features like facetime audio on apple watch, that should be added. I really hope they bring a very good software update out, to add new features and remove bugs.

    Besides that, I think they will mention how big the impact was, a video of launch day, but no numbers.

    Can't wait for iTunes streaming coming up <3

    With no availability in stores, then what can they show in their video?

    A handful of people who lined up anyway only to be turned away?

    People waiting impatiently for the UPS truck?

    People meeting in shady places to pay too much to buy a watch from a scalper?

    Like a politician, when it is bad news, you say nothing. I have already read a comment where he said demand was overwhelming . . . seeing they had no stock that was easy!

    Yes I am also very excited to hear some updates on the watch at WWDC. Maybe even some hints at future software updates and features would be cool too!

    Yes, Apple will show their loyal customers lined up around the block being treated with disdain by snooty elitist employees working at high end luxury boutiques with no Apple logos in sight, while fashionistas with inside store contacts cut the line and walk out with multiple purchases for resale at over twice the retail price.

    That will go over big at WWDC

    The same could be said about some Apple loyal customers as well, IJS.

    Maybe they will show a video of :apple:Watch testimonials and how they use it in their everyday life, kind of like last year's video about how apps benefited their lives.

    They could show the photo of a couple using an :apple:watch to send the heart beat of their newborn baby to friends and relatives.

    Cute always works.

    They'll show videos of try-on sessions and not mention the launch at all.

    He's sure to mention it because he'll want to rally the developers to create watch apps.

    I'd like and update to 1.1 that helps my weather app not beachball for 10 seconds before showing the weather. :(

    I really hope they change the contact button to a home button or something more useful. At least let us pick what we want to do with it like the mute button on the iPad.

    He really should apologize for the botched launch of the watch during WWDC

    Would love for an updated watchkit that includes native Apps that are more than just displays for the iPhone apps. Like the 1st party apps work.
