Apple watch and AirPods are "underpriced"

I'm sorry, but in what world is a $350 smartwatch, which only works with a phone that costs at least $650, "underpriced"?

Oh, wait, it's "underpriced" when compared to similarly-crazy-priced cell phone accessories.

People are buying as fast or faster (Apple Watch was hard to find around the holidays) than Apple can manufacture so...

The author makes the point that the level of technology was either impossible just a few years ago or would have cost thousands of dollars and is no longer at a crazy apple premium compared to competitors.

I remember these from when I was a kid. Pretty cool concept. No need for one then, no need for one now...

The BFG is having a crisis, having lost an airpod in a sewer. I did not know what they were. And now I do.
