Not to me. I can't wait to get one. Actually, I know I'll buy 2 - one for me, one for my wife. It looks well thought out, and very useful.
Oh. Well... double dumbass on me.
I do so enjoy looking at peoples' mockups, renders and concepts. They require exactly no engineering. All they represent is jewelry.   But, I did call Tim coming out in long sleeves. After the first Apple Watch video, he rolled them up and showed off his on his wrist. Pretty cool. In hindsight, I did notice he was controlling his show/presentation with some sort of hand held clicker. Woulda been a nice touch (!) to transition to doing that from his Apple Watch in the...
Well..Apple might be able to do something about all the cars idling at red lights (or electric cars with people wasting time in them). I'm not sure there is a consumer device to be developed, but cities sure need a better way to coordinate traffic lights to maximize throughput. Apple might wish to look at fixing the Google Glass. It is about in the same spot as the "smartphone" was before iPhone came along. If you industry analysts out there that have actual...
Respectfully disagree. The basic capabilities will all be the same. 
This is all just my opinion based on these comments and articles about Apple and Apple Watch:   1. Apple is being very deliberate about making Apple Watch in many different configurations and price points. The entry level $349 price one will almost for sure do everything one costing at least $1000. So...you get to choose. This is no different that any other tech. How many times did the word "personal" come up in the keynote? I love my Macbook Air; I can't stand the...
Sure. But this isn't just a watch. There are lots of people that said the same thing about cell phones and iPhones. "I've got a phone at home. It even has an answering machine. I can't see myself wanting to talk to someone on a phone."
Agree on the "to each their own." I don't know what "naff" means. I suppose attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder. As a 53 year old man that women of child bearing years no longer actually look at, I am far more interested in function. I'm not going to strap an iPhone to my wrist, and there are certainly limits as to simple taste.  But I guess I don't really care that I'm perhaps not adorned with jewelry. It is unlikely I'll buy a gold uber-expensive one. But I do...
 Apple is in CA, and is now naming their software for CA places. CA has earthquakes. People have been working on earthquake detection and warning systems. The Napa earthquake resulted in many people simultaneously picking up their cell phones. iPhones all now have motion sensors in them. It seems like the motion detectors can be aggrigated and synchronized to build an earthquake alert system. Siri built into the home seems a natural. Think Tony Stark/ Iron Man and...
I agree. There is a LOTTA stuff in that pipeline. While I did speculate they would offer an early release preview, and that seems to be what they've done, they've done just enough to make mouths water, gauge feedback, make adjustments that will percolate for years.  I dug this from The Loop: Here are some comments on the announcement of Apple’s “newest” digital device: “I was so hoping for something more.”“Great just what the world needs.”“Heres an idea Apple – rather than...
