Thankfully, we don’t always need Apple to answer those questions.

Drones are the big thing these days, whether they be used by people for plain old fun or being flown over Apple’s new spaceship campus as it is being built, drones are fast becoming a factor of life rather than something just a few have any experience of. You can buy them from the Apple Store should you so wish, and when anything is available for sale at Apple’s own retail outlet it’s safe to say that it has made it big time.

Want a nice, customized band for your brand new Apple Watch? Is Apple’s latest creation just missing something special before it truly finds a place in your heart? How about a customized band with photos of your loved ones on it? Or maybe just photos of Tim Cook and Bono doing that weird E.T. pose from last year?

There seems to be some chatter about Apple’s use of time when showing off the Apple Watch and, importantly, the reason behind it. But first, a little background.
