Apple Watch rationing caused by the MOON GOAT, not quality

Thomas Wolf

Yes, every phone - including the single most successful smartphone model ever - which hardly needed "manufactured scarcity" in order to sell well. Could it possibly be that it *is* difficult to manufacture 10m units of anything - much less complex electronics - in a short period of time?

The Apple Watch uses new manufacturing techniques and probably a new mix of suppliers. It is not surprising that there are birthing problems. I think this is much ado about nothing.
