No, the rumored iWatch does not feel PDA-ish to me.  Apple touted handwriting recognition on the Newton, but no one has heard what Apple will tout for the iWatch.  I speculate that the iWatch will be very Jobsian, meaning they're thinking about how it can enhance our lives by applying advanced electronics technology to human lives.  In contrast, the Newton always seemed geeky to me, engineer-driven with insufficient consideration of the humanities.  Newton seemed like...
SolipsismX's response was exactly right, except that the original poster's name was "ManFromMars".  In other words, he was sharing his perspective with us, which indeed looks like the perspective of someone living on a different planet  
Good point.  A little nit-picky, but I agree with you.  AI editors, are  you listening?
 I for one, appreciate that AppleInsider lets me know about Ming-Chi Kuo's reports.  No, it's not gospel, but it's a very accurate insider's opinion.  If I couldn't get this information from AI, I'd look for it elsewhere.  These reports are indeed speculative, but they're some of the most informed speculation we have until Cupertino itself delivers the actual gospel.
If I can't feel sympathy for people who are less sophisticated than I am, why should people who are more sophisticated than me ever feel sympathy for me?  Perhaps I'll never need any sympathy because I'm perfect?
With due respect, I want to complain about AI's headline. It's true, the video shows the panel being destroyed by a car (or heavy truck), but that's only AFTER the video shows the panel surviving quite a number of dramatic tests. I think the video shows us that almost nothing can break the sapphire panel, but AI's headline tells us that the panel is breakable, and it falsely implies that the panel might be not that hard to break.
 Really?  I haven't seen this guarantee.  As a shareholder I certainly hope you're right, but I don't remember anyone giving me any kind of guarantee!
Gosh, I don't see it that way.  I happen to be an American, and in all the interactions I've had with Mr. Cook () I feel like he's treated me respectfully.  In contrast, in most of the encounters I've observed between Mr. Cook and Android, Cook seems to be, figuratively speaking of course, spitting on them!   
 My apologies, because I obviously didn't make myself clear in my earlier post.  I never meant to imply that working at a big company makes you perfect.  What I meant was being an executive at Apple makes you very elite and very smart about Apple's business. Despite how smart these executives are, they definitely still make mistakes.  No argument there.   Where I disagreed with your original post was that you implied that Tim Cook hadn't even considered the possibility...
 It's a legitimate question:  Is it better to stay above the fray or engage and criticize your competitor.  I wonder if Tim Cook and his staff in Cupertino are sophisticated enough to address this question?  I wonder if those guys, who are executives of the most valuable company in America today, are smart enough to wisely consider the issue?  I wonder if they're any smarter than us, we with strong opinions who post in the comment section of Apple Insider?   Curious thing.
