Video: Apple Watch, Apple Gadget Fantasies

This Week In 60 Seconds clocks in on the Apple Watch and suggests other products we would've liked to see from Cupertino.

This week’s video news roundup is all Apple. We delve into the features and pricing of the Apple Watch ($10,000? Really?), the HBO deal, and the new MacBook.

We also fantasize about ways Apple could spend its billions, like building a factory in the US, developing clones, researching cancer cures, or maybe just making a cool car.

You can find links to the full stories below. And don’t forget to answer our question of the week: Will you buy an Apple Watch? Let us know in the comments section.

Re: $10,000 - $17,000 for the watch, really???
@angelfuego I'd never drop $10,000 on a computer either, never mind an accessory. These prices are absurd.

@Drew, Me either. I wouldn't spend that much on a tradition watch as well. I also wouldn't spend that on any computer either.

So its not me only, there are many more probable users complaining about the price. Just wondering the target market of these watches ? Lets see how it goes around for Apple crazy fans.

I'm with both of you. That seems like a crazy price. Then again, I wouldn't spend $10K on a traditional watch either, so clearly I'm not Apple's target market for that item.

Wow, that video allowed me to make up my mind about even entertaining the possibility of owning an Apple watch. The prices are absolutely ridiculous and out of my range. I will stick with the products I have for now.

$10,000 - $17,000 for the watch, really???
Good grief, I could pick up a Rolex Daytona or an Audemars Piguet for that kind of loot.  What the hell is a $10,000 Apple watch going to do for me?
