    I know this is considered minor, but looking through the new stuff they've updated the site with, coming across screens showcased like this is a little surprising:

    [​IMG]

    Could they not have just wrapped Labels to the second line instead of splitting the word like that? (and then subsequently using that as a promo image?)

    Not to mention the double space in the description before the last word. Kinda sloppy, if you ask me. But heck, we're all sitting here nitpicking because of the loooooooooong lead-up to the release.

    I am sure they will likely make adjustments to future releases. Can't wait until next Friday!

    Yeah, I am sure right now their biggest focus is actually getting it released than it is working on software revisions. I am sure in future WWDC's (not the one upcoming) will headline new Watch OS upgrades just like OS X and iOS does today.

    Auto layout issue, probably.

    I'm surprised something like this made it into print, though.

    kinda funny. When I first saw that image my thought was "La-Bels...? What the heck is a La-Bel?"

    I thought Patti LaBelle*.

    It is strange they bothered to hyphenate it correctly, but completely missed the more-appropriate line break.

    One of the first rules of typography, never split a single word on 2 different lines if you can avoid it! And they definitely could have avoided it!

    Like said above, I'm sure they'll fix it, but it is strange how they used it as a promo image.
