In the end Apple will buy Oculus VR and will revolutionize virtual reality.

Maybe you're right and the blame shouldn't be put on 3rd party vendors, but the end user instead.
So using your logic:

Anyways, I'm done reading anymore comments in this thread.

Again, the exact same thing can happen to any system. Hell Linux actually has issues with how it handles hard drives and I encountered it a couple months ago.

I can and HAVE done basically the same thing before on a Mac. Guess what? Didn't boot.

I love OSX and believe it is a really good Operating System. But seriously the Windows misconception is going too far. Nowadays Windows is just as stable as OSX. For every "stability" you can name on Windows, I or someone else here can easily give examples of the same thing happening on OSX or even some other OS! Their is no perfect OS and yes Windows does have its issues but OSX also has its issues that is absolutely struggles with that Windows machines now do better.

If Dullards at MS are so quickly interested

The Product idea will bomb!!!

Quite frankly, the whole idea of this seems only about 20% less lame than Google Glass.... which in my humble opinion, is as revealing about a user as having "douche bag" tattooed on your stinking forehead.

I'd rather dump money on a nice Oris watch.... than wear the 2013 version of the 1980's calculator watch. Just seems lame and as thou the industry as a whole has lost a bit of direction. This is what happens when you start thinking Facebook is a great way to invest your time; never quite getting that nobody cares where you're going next week, or how much beer you can drink.

Casio touch screen watch in 1983 . And they had multiple models. And it was water resist and touch screen in 1983 ! On a watch !

They also had around that time a talking watch with human voice. And the voice would not only tell time, but announced you had n minutes till the timer is up and other functions.

I'll slam MS, Apple, whomever, if there is a legitimate reason.
Your reasoning is flawed.
You will have issues with any OS if you wholesale change the hardware it was originally configured to run under.
It is always good form to rerun the setup process when making major hardware changes.


As for the topic, MS made software for smartwatches before (SPOT), so it's hard to copy and idea from another company when they have already done it themselves.
Apple hasn't made anything, so you cannot copy what doesn't exist.

Heck, the Fossil Abacus ran full blown Palm OS back in 2003.
Huge watch, but still pretty cool back then.

That's because Microsoft is playing boot-up tricks to make it seem like it's faster when it's not.

Regardless, it takes less time to boot up. It's not an optical illusion. However, are their any negative effects of the quick boot up time?

I'll pass. Ill stick to wearing my Omega Planet Ocean. There is no way you can make these kind of watches sleek and elegant.

It doesn't? So when I click the power button on my Macbook Air, switch to Windows 8, and let it boot... the fact that it takes a smaller amount of time doesn't mean it boots faster?

Interesting.

Watches aren't as popular as they one were a time back. I don't get either why everyone is jumping on the smartwatch bandwagon

Most everyone nowadays just checks their phone for the time...

You're thinking of the garbage MS pulled on XP/Vista/W7 where you would get to a login screen fast, but it still took forever and a week to actually be able to do something. Granted Win 7 was better, bit still had the a post login lag.

Win 8 is ready to rock the instant you see the login screen. What ever needs to be loaded is there before you log in, not after like previous Win versions.
No tricks, just eliminated the unnecessary bloat.
My old Dell Vostro 400 (using it now) boots in less than 20 seconds and is ready the moment I log in.

As you can see by the screen shot, it is no beast by any means.
