  Well, from everything that you've said it appears that you agree with what I said. It's going to take a while for this thing to take off. Moving on... because we just keep saying the same things over and over... The "wearables" market will be huge... agreed... but... is the Apple Watch the thing that will make the wearables market move? Is Apple sticking too close to the watch metaphor? Is Apple's corporate culture restricting Apple's ability to think more out of the...
