Is Apple wasting its time with the iWatch?
Based on what we've seen so far from other prominent manufacturers, a smartwatch may not be worth the company's time.
Just ask Google (GOOG), who's spent untold research and development dollars on Glass, or Intel (INTC) with its big investment in rival Recon Instruments, the Canadian outfit that brought the world's first Heads-Up Display to market.
If I was Apple I would be more concerned about updating my phone from the annually recycled from 2007 device that it actually is. Each version of the iphone adds nothing significant, just puts more cash offshore.
Go away Apple, far away.
I have heard a $350 figure in regard to the iWatch. Someone is smoking dope!! What on earth will a cheesy techno-watch from Apple do for me for my $350??
While we all recall the Dick Tracy watch from the 1950's, that ship has long ago sailed. Today you can buy an excellent watch that synchs to the atomic clock daily, charges from exposure to light and does about anything else a watch can do, all for about $75.
Are there enough Apple worshipper out there to support this watch idea? If so, there are some really gullible people in the world.
Apple has had a Smart Watch for years, the Small Touch Screen Nano can be bought with a watchband,
I prefer to waer my Tiffany Watch more, looks very nice and simple and I keep my phone put alway
It's enough new toys already Apple doesn't to throw more pollution into the oceans when people are done with one and want another!
Yes the oceans are where the plastic on most tech toys eventually end up.
They should revel in their success but enough is enough!
I hate to be an early adopter. So I'm waiting for the second version.
