This seems a little scammy to me. Example: they list Apples price on the entry level 27" iMac at $1968 saying it comes with a 2.9Ghz processor. Apple does not list this confiuration in their store. Apple's entry level on the 27" is $1799 for a 3.2Ghz. This is to slippery for me. I am going to stay away from this.
Without Airplay this does not interest me. Also it would be nice to be able to buy individual games or weeks. As a Bronco fan many of the Bronco games will be national or west coast broadcast games. I would rather pay for just those that are not. I guess if you are a Raiders or Jaguars fan this could be a good deal. I find the tone of the article humorous, like this is the best thing since sliced bread.
As much as companies whine and moan when they percieve the "playing field to not be level, that is all they really want. Just slanting toward their company. Apple is offering a level playing field and only time will tell if companies choose to take advantage of it. However that will mean they will have to compete rather than control. It should be interesting to watch it unfold.
First we have the problem of the name. This fictional device is being called an iWatch and Apple will never produce a watch. Ever! They may produce a wearable that does many things of which one will be to tell you the time, but that would be like calling your car a watch because it also tells you the time. Why do we keep calling this thing a watch?
