Apple to devs: Watch out, don't make the Watch into a, well, a watch

Re: Time up

Note my caveat about clearly notifying the end customer prior to purchase of the restrictions.

This is common practice with software you buy, which you agree to by ticking that box after reading the small print (like we all do!!). You do not own that but you buy the use of it. Apple have appeared to have taken this one stage further by applying it to the hardware they design, have manufactured & market so annoyingly seductively.

So what are you buying?, The agreed use of it!

The question is, were these restrictions & the permission to add more retrospectively, presented clearly to you before you bought in?

Yes another reason I do not own/lease Apple devices.
