I wrote this answer on Quora and thought it’s worth sharing on here as well. Answer by Bayan Qandil: The answer to this is not answered by technology strategy but rather economics. The resale market for Apple Watches will decide the value of the resale of the high end model. The key question will be what the valuable attributes of the watch will be.

Seems like iOS7 Beta 3 has a lot of stability fixes. The OS overall feels snappier and more stable. It also fixes the iMessage and FaceTime registration issues that caused lots of problems for people. Apple seemed to have fixed some Application Compatibility issues since a lot of apps appear to be working more smoothly. Beta 3 so far looks like a huge improvement in stability.

Did RIM make the wrong decision making it unsuccessful today?
Siri was purchased by Apple and we have not heard much from them since. You can still download their application on their website although I’m not sure if it’s been updated.

A public battle began between Apple and Adobe related to Flash support on the iPhone. What started with Apple putting terms in it’s Developer License Agreement that prohibit flash usage in iPhone apps, resulted in a top adobe developer telling Apple to “Screw off” and then a response by Mr. Jobs letting us know his thoughts on Flash.
