    I wonder what else Force Touch does that we don't know about yet?

    My question about this is did they really give her and her husband an Apple Watch? Or is this just marketing?

    My guess is that both of those are accurate.

    Yes, they did give her and her husband an Apple Watch, and yes, it's 100% marketing. Do you think Apple is just nice, and gives her the Watch? :D

    Also, many journalists have gotten a Watch for review, and that's marketing too :)

    For third-party apps, force-touch can bring up a menu overlay with up to four buttons. Apple's apps of course can do anything with force-touch.

    I wonder if that will eventually be opened up more to developers?

    What is the difference between force touch and long press? (the one you normally do for copy & paste)

    Probably. It's already open to developers on OS X, so I don't see a reason for not giving developers access to it on the Watch. But it will probably come with a new SDK at WWDC allowing for native apps. Because right now, developers have access to only a minimal set of API's like buttons, tables, switches etc.

    ----------

    With Force Touch you can quickly tap the display hard (just like when you tap normally, just harder), and it will bring op a context menu/second feature.

    The technology can "feel" how hard you press on the screen, so in the future it could be used for much more exciting stuff.

    Apple said they are releasing a native dev kit later this year, that should let developers do almost anything Apple's own apps do, including react to Force Touch however they want.

    Looks like Apple is also supplies her with a photographer. :D I bet Apple is even making a nice contribution to her charity. Probably paying her too.
