 Well, Tim Cook was dropping hints about the importance of speech interfaces earlier this month:http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/07/02/apples-cook-says-ios-8-voice-messaging-a-key-feature-prompts-speculation-of-inclusion-in-iwatch- If it did have a touch interface, I'm not sure a watch face would have room for more than 1 or 2 buttons. Remember Apple would not make a big silly sized one, it would be small and elegant. My bet is for speech as the primary interface,...
Oh well, there's always the public library.

New product lines are not guaranteed to succeed, even from Apple. When John Sculley took over from Steve, his first entirely new product line was the Newton Message Pad. It flopped and he got the axe.
It's not just Microsoft and Google that have been stumbling, it's all of the (other) tech firms. None of them knew where to go next, only Steve Jobs knew.
Their website looks good. I'll check it out, thanks. Edit: Oh, it also appears to be US only.
Unlimited books to read, that's like my dream product. US only, *sigh*.
Good video. Scientific and clearly explained (until the bow and arrow bit, don't know what that proved).
I think it's just the use of the word "free" that is annoying the bureaucrats. It means "free to download" (that's why it's on the download button) but they take it as meaning the product, in it's entirety, is free (which it isn't in the case in IAP).
You shouldn't have to have an "iTunes account balance," and you shouldn't have a "credit card." You should have a Bank Account.   iTunes Store should be able to debit this, by giving your permission via a digital signature, when you sign up to iTunes.    That is the simplest possible solution. Steve Jobs loved simple and it was why Apple succeeded. iTunes Pass is just more complexity.
