Over at The Wall Street Journal Daisuke Wakabayashi on Apple Watch first-year sales:
Apple Inc. sold twice as many Watches as iPhones in each device’s debut year. Yet the smartwatch is dogged by a perception that seems premature given the history of Apple’s most popular devices: disappointment.
As the Watch marks its first anniversary on Sunday—two days before Apple’s quarterly earnings announcement—the product’s fate is critical to the company. It is Apple’s first all-new product since the iPad and a test of its ability to innovate under Chief Executive Tim Cook, when sales of iPhones are slowing.
Right on cue, the tech press continues it’s modern tradition of showing us how Apple can do no right, ever.
