[Tim Wilson] "might be a bigger gap between gross and net than they're letting on to anyone who's not sitting in front of a spreadsheet.

Whereas I am sitting under a bedsheet. LOL Big difference.

Not if your spreadsheets are printed out on your bed sheets (anyone that gets that reference w/o Google is automatically my BFF).

[Tim Wilson] "Here's what's crazy: it costs $81 to build an Apple Watch, and the entry level model goes for $349...for a profit margin of....drumroll please....SEVENTY SEVEN PERCENT."

My caveat with that type of stat is the $81 is for parts and doesn't include everything else it takes to actually create and deliver the product (R&D, manufacturing, marketing, etc.,). It's like saying the DVD copy of Deadpool has insane margins because it's $16.00 and blank DVDs only cost $0.10. You can't ignore the 10's of millions of dollars spent in order to get a quality, finished product onto that 10 cent disc. ;)
