Here's how I read it:   We've been saying this thing would come out. As the time nears, there's just no evidence that it's going into production. The choices are:   1. We were wrong and it's not coming. 2. It's delayed 6 months.   Well, we sure hate to admit we were wrong about something, so yeah, #1 it is.
I remember when Apple had to pay that MP3 player over $300m because they had a patent for "lists on a small screen." So it would be nice for Apple to triumph, but the system is as it is because sometimes the trolls win. (Edit: even if the judgement is cut to 1/10... the trolls get far more than I'll earn in a lifetime for less work than I'll do in a month)
I had a patient yesterday who had an Android watch. It's the first one I've ever seen in the wild. I asked her about it. She liked it. She says she used it to check her messages and that it had substantially reduced the number of times she fished her watch out of the purse. I didn't give her a hard time about it. But I commented on it in the first place because it was so big and clunky looking. The Apple Watch won't be that clunky, I think... but I think it's gonna look...
When have they EVER gone where they ought?
Nothing better than over-the-top predictions to get a market set for disappointment, even when the actual results end up breaking records.
 Piling on too. My assistant bought a 5c. She had been wanting an iPhone for a few years. It wasn't until the 5c that she finally thought she could afford it.
Makes you wonder if one of Apple's competitors came up with the idea, to kill the apple-watch.
:-\ Все в России всегда ищет следующую кон. Is that word right? I don't know it in Russian. If you live there, you know exactly what I mean. Maybe not everybody, but it can sure seem that way sometimes.
Interestingly, I was talking to someone in Odessa (Ukraine) yesterday who was trying to buy an iPhone 6 w/ 64GB there. I think what they're getting out there are gray-market unlocked phones purchased here and sent over there, but the cost was the equivalent of $1300. And reportedly, the price bumped up so much in just one day between yesterday and today that this person can no longer afford it. From a dollars standpoint it didn't increase, but the exchange rates are...
I'm hoping it has a pressure sensitive pen support. Even the new Wacom creative stylus 2 is problematic. I would love to use an iPad as an art tablet.
