Quiet Apple Watch Tables (Continued), Chinese Stock Market Crash Impact on Apple, Showtime Arrives on Apple TV

Today's Above Avalon stories: 

  • Quiet Apple Watch Tables in Apple Retail Stores (Continued) - After making one additional point about those quiet Apple Watch tables in Apple retail stores, we discuss the Marketwatch report saying Apple Watch is flopping and how to approach Slice Intelligence data. 
  • Chinese Stock Market Crash Impact on Apple - I discuss my experience with the 2008 and 2009 U.S. financial crisis, before going over the Chinese stock market crash and what the ongoing situation means for AAPL. 
  • Showtime Arrives on Apple TV - The future of TV is actually closer than one would expect and it is looking expensive. 

We kick off today's email with a few additional comments on those quiet Apple Watch tables and a new "report" from MarketWatch making the rounds indicating the Apple Watch is truly flopping. Next, we shift over to the developing situation in China as various stock indexes continue to crash. While one assumes this can't be a good situation for Apple given its exposure to China, there is much more to the story than what meets the eye. We conclude with Showtime coming to Apple TV and how a la carte TV is quickly becoming an expensive option for some consumers.
