If you think that a $350 watch that exists solely so you don't have to take your phone out of your pocket is for "regular folks" you might want to recalibrate "regular"

You're just being argumentative.
Apple sells plenty of 2-$400 toys like iPads and pods to regular people every day of the week.

I am a regular guy, not wealthy (but, true enough, not poor) at all, and I want an Apple watch. I'll likely get one at some point as well... just not in April.

I was thinking that looked about right, but was thinking it was about individual sessions (as opposed to per week).

That's why it's funny.

But actually, the correct name for that character (minus the big nose) is Spider-Man, yes, with the hyphen.

And the last son of Krypton is Superman, no hyphen.
