Tim Cook was spotted at the Apple Store in Palo Alto this morning, greeting customers who had come in to get a first look at the Apple Watch.

The Apple CEO said he was impressed with the enthusiasm behind Apple Watch, stating “customers have been giving us great feedback and orders have been great, as well.” Apple Watch pre-orders sold out within hours this morning, with all units now not shipping until June.

Before Cook left he gave fans a glimpse of the stainless steel Apple Watch he’s been wearing with a custom red Digital Crown. Check out in the video below:

    Who cares?

    • You. Because you clicked on the article AND commented! People like you make me laugh.

      • AAPL.To.Break.$130.Soon>:-)

        He or she probably doesn’t care because they’ll be able to purchase their cheap Android Wear smartwatches for a fraction of the price they originally cost and that’s what they really care about. Saving money by doing everything on the cheap. It’s either that or simply a lonely person desperately begging for attention.

        “Who cares?” Probably millions of curious people do care about AppleWatch and may purchase one.

      Despise Apple as Much as Ya Like !
      And, Then Again, That NEVER CHANGE YA LIFE BETTER !!!!!!
      HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa.

    “People like you make me laugh.” You don’t know me. I think the watch is a stupid idea.

    • igorsky

      As a shareholder I say thank fucking god that you’re not the CEO of Apple.

      • Mo Ham

        As an soon to be ex apple user. Steve is dead and Tim’s an idiot.

      • Dan Boltron

        Mo Ham had a thought. Good for you buddy. Take your brilliant mind to far wilder successes than what Tim Cook and Apple are doing.

    • Jeo Ten

      Okay I’ll do it … I don’t care what Mo Ham thinks.

    • I don’t need to know you. Again, you obviously care because you came back here! Oh and the watch is a stupid idea? Yep, millions of people are wrong. Someone jealous they didn’t get one?

    • JohnyMyko

      Just like touch smartphones and tablets were stupid ideas, right?

    • Jay

      That’s what people said about the iPad.

  • Mo Ham

    Apple should go back to making computers for the rest of us.

  • Conservative411

    I am so glad I didn’t stop reading the headline at “Tim Cook Flashes”. I got sick to my stomach until I read the rest of it.

    • Dan Boltron

      It’s so funny listening to homophobes so preoccupied with homosexual sex. Research demonstrates that homophobes actually become aroused by homo-eroticism. Did you get a halfy when you read half the headline? Maybe this truth is why conservatives want to deny science so desperately…
      “The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35 ) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)”

        Who said it had to do with the fact that Tim is gay? I would get sick if I read ANYTHING about someone flashing, regardless of sexual orientation. Typical Liberal trying to force homophobia into everything.

      • Dan Boltron

        Let Conservative411 speak for himself. But thanks for letting us know what’s on YOUR mind and sharing your asexuality here with all of us.

      • Conservative411

        What an ignorant assuming post. You obviously have anger issues. I don’t care what his sexual tendencies are.

      • Dan Boltron

        Seems a little hard to believe since you identify yourself as Conservative411 and are commenting about being nauseous about the idea of Tim Cook flashing. Why your mind would err toward Tim Cook being naked is one thing, then such a comment being so close in proximity to the statements he made about Indiana and that controversy (which MANY conservatives are shouting from the rooftops about all over the internet)… If you’re truly not making any statement about his sexuality, then kindly ignore… My post is for the rest of the conservatives who betray their latent homosexual tendencies behind a veil of outrage and proclamations of being sick to their stomach at the idea of homosexual sex.

      • Conservative411

        You are a very hateful bitter person. I hope you get some help. Have a nice day!

      • Dan Boltron

        Very insightful of you to say the same thing twice. I am just pointing out what is all over the internet nowadays on Apple discussions. You set yourself up man.

      • Conservative411

        Set myself up for what? I don’t want to see anyone flash anyone and I thought the headline started out funny. Again I cant stress it enough you need to get some help on that hatred.

      • Dan Boltron

        With all the discourse around discrimination, Tim Cook, Apple, and Indiana’s new religious freedom law you can’t see how someone with the screen name Conservative411 making a comment about being disgusted by Tim Cook flashing would set yourself up for being the butt of a joke about homophobia? OK… I hear your repetitive call about anger. There is a lot of discrimination out there and there is nothing wrong with people being angry about bigotry. I gave you an out by saying “If you’re truly not making any statement about his sexuality, then kindly ignore…”, but you’re not ignoring so… Alternatively, I might recommend checking into getting help for your echolalia. Other than that do you have anything different to say?

      • Conservative411

        In your attempt to fight bigotry you have proven yourself to be a bigot.

      • Dan Boltron

        I see. Are you one of those people who believe the real problem with racism, for example, in the U.S. is reverse racism?

      • Conservative411

        You are the only one in this conversation criticizing anyone. I haven’t said anything about homosexuals or any other group. The only thing I have said was I thought at first it was talking about Tim Cook flashing someone before I read the rest of the headline. You are the one that ran with it and turned it into something it wasn’t. You were the one that got your panties in a wad over nothing except my screen name. You are obviously a bigot and only ok with someone else’s opinion if it complies with your own. You have a lot of problems that you need to take care of. You should look into a mirror instead of through a window.

      • Dan Boltron

        I pointed out appearances, alone, in relation to your screen name and your comment. I gave you an out, if in fact what seemed in “appearance” was not your point of view (noting that there are many people who are conservative who rail against homosexuality, and that is purely a fact). You can’t let it go. Now you’re trying to bring it back to exactly what I was talking about and act like some sort of victim of bigotry, which is exactly the point I started with. Now we’ve come full circle. So, is this not about your point of view on sexual orientation? Or is it about being discriminated against for your point of view on sexual orientation?

      • Conservative411

        Gave me an out for what? You were trying to bait me into a conversation I wasn’t even here to have. Obviously you anent just a bigot you are a bully too. I didn’t “rail” about ANYTHING but you have been doing nothing but railing against my harmless comment and other conservatives. I’m done with your lopsided view. Adios.

      • Dan Boltron

        “If you’re truly not making any statement about his sexuality, then kindly ignore…” I never said you railed against anything. I said there are a lot of conservatives who rail against homosexuality. And again I wrote to you “If you’re truly not making any statement about his sexuality, then kindly ignore…” Last I checked we have Freedom of Speech and I am free to criticize people’s points of view, and people are free to not like homosexuality if they don’t like it. Last I checked we all still have Freedom of Speech and people should be free to express themselves however they want. The difference is that as much as I criticize conservatives who are against homosexuality I would still serve them a wedding cake if they came into my place of business. But you didn’t answer my last question…

  • TimT2011

    A “well-bearded man!” LOL Good to see Tim spending time with the real Apple press too.

  • I think Apple created time travel cause I like to wear my pants backwards!

  • Jay

    “All units not shipping until June”. That’s not true at all. A lot of people (myself included) have April 24th-May 8th ship dates.

  • dbtwothree

    Tim’s such a nice guy- how many other executives do you see that are that personable, down to earth and enjoy interacting with their customers at the retail level. Most could care less and are only concerned about cost, sales and P&L.

    BTW, that’s not red, that’s Orange, An Orange dot has significance to any design student from Art Center. This is interesting.
