Actually it wouldn't. A watch that never needs charging (like a normal watch, basically) is one thing. A watch that needs charging every two days is hardly any better than one that needs daily charging. If I have to take off my watch to charge overnight, I'd want to do it every night so it would become an engrained habit. Every other night is a recipe for wearing a dead hunk of metal a few days a month. As long as it can survive, say, 20 hours of heavy use--after being...
I didn't miss your point; I disagree with it. Hence my comment about it being silly. You're making an odd meta-semantic point about it being somehow illegitimate to say (in essence) "let's see if you're right when thing shake out in the future (I'm nearly certain you won't be)." Using your logic if you said "I guarantee the Giants will win tonight, probably by 10 runs." It would be out of bounds for me to reply "Let's talk tomorrow; if by some miracle the Giants win huge,...
But that is exactly what buffets and all-you-can-eat providers do.  Go to Red Lobster or Olive Garden and buy one of their "all the _____ you can eat" deals and then see if they'll bring you your next plate the second you finish the first.  Not going to happen.  They will take their sweet time in bringing you your next round--prioritizing orders from people who are waiting on their normal meals.  Exactly like AT&T is doing here.  I agree with chadbag--without a...
We shall see.  I'm sure that, just like with the iPhone, the determining factor for the success of the Apple Watch will be the apps.  No one buys an iPhone because they want a way to make phone calls and no one will buy an Apple Watch because they want to know the time.  I had a cell phone for years before the iPhone.  I rarely used it, didn't take it with me everywhere, and often when needed it was out of power.  None of those things are true about my iPhone.  I have to...
So we have another prediction (or 2):  "Apple will not provide sales numbers for the Apple Watch and will declare it a 'hobby.'" I expect the opposite.  If Apple doesn't release sales figures that will tell me that the Apple Watch is not selling as well as Apple anticipated (and therefore could be considered, in some sense, a failure).  But just as with Macs, iPods, iPhones, and iPads I expect that Apple will announce rough sales figures along with analysis such as "In the...
That's silly.  He's obviously wrong ("I can't imagine anyone wanting this after that remark.").  But if, by some miracle, he's right, then we'll see.  I'm not giving myself an out.
I agree with you, but what do you mean by that last part?  Based on what we've heard, charging an Apple Watch will be rather elegant--just a matter of putting it atop of an attractive inductive charging stand.  (Personally, I'm one of those odd people who wears their watch to bed, so it would be somewhat inconvenient for me.  My uncorrected vision is such that I can easily read a watch, but can't read a bedside clock.)  Or did you mean that having one of these run out of...
I don't get it.  Pay for what?
Someone save this comment.  I expect that paz will forget he said this 2 years from now (unless against all odds he's actually right, of course).
Right.  But it actually need to have a battery life of something like 24-30 hours under normal/heavy usage fresh out of the box.  That is, it should never run out of juice between nightly charges, even after a few years of service.  Unfortunately my 13 month old 5s doesn't pass this test.  If it barely lasts 18 hours brand new, then Apple has a problem.  Based on Cook's comments, I think they'll be ok.  Better to "sell" a watch that can sometimes go two days between...
