When you get relegated to the slow line with your smartphone in hand while the people wearing smartwatches are zipping through checkpoints to board the plane, pick up their rental, pay for their purchases, enter the concert hall, check out library books, check into the hotel, etc., then you will see the added value. And don't expect corporations to spend money to bring speed and ease of service for smartphone-only owners up to par with smartwatch owners.  If at all they...
Humility is an undervalued virtue. Imagine the companies who would still be around today, or at least be in better shape, if their CEOs exhibited a little more humility in the face of new competitive threats. Blackberry, Microsoft, Dell, Palm, the list goes on.

Once you do though, you can't imagine parting with the dang thing.  How many of us who were adults during the pre-mobile phone era feel naked if we leave the house today without our phones?   The daily use demo by Kevin Lynch might look uninteresting but boarding a plane without having to pull...
Thirty years ago while in grad school overseas, I casually mentioned to an American classmate that the NSA monitors all satellite transmissions including personal communications.  He was incredulous and was so appalled that I would accuse the US government of being capable of such an egregious violation of the constitution.  Then I showed him the Time magazine article that mentioned it in passing, as if it was not big deal at all. Hold no illusions about how the US...
