I have several friends that have the Apple Watch. They're opinions seem to be divided. Some like to have notifications on their wrist while others wish it didn't have to tether to the iPhone. I think personally it'll remain a niche device until it can function fully without tethering to the iPhone. When it has its own 4G connectivity and you can get emails, messages, data and make calls using a bluetooth earpiece that uses the Apple Watch as the connection with no iPhone required. That's when it'll really take off. At that point...who needs a phone? Make it happen Apple!

Other: Wireless Charging.
This. Apple needs to jump on the wireless charging bandwagon.
So i'm thinking of getting one of those credit card scanner thingies for my iphone but i'm not exactly sure which one to get or how they work. I do home entertainment installation and consulting on location and it would be nice to offer my clients the ability to pay with credit card at the site instead of just cash or when i'm back in the office. Anyone out there can walk me through how to do this?

No one knows for sure yet but it looks likely. Apparently they will offer some kind of adapter that allows wired headphones to still be used but going forward wireless earbuds will probably be sold as an option for use with iPhones. As long as my old headphones can be used with some kind of adapter through the lightning port it makes sense I guess. One of the reasons i've heard they're doing this is to make the phones thinner yet...but the iPhone is already pretty darn thin...not sure going thinner will make much of a difference to people. i'd rather it have a bit of heft and better battery life personally.
