Yup. If you want to weird someone out and get into a good, long argument, tell them the Chinese basically invented spaghetti.

They can always stick an iOS knockoff on it, but it would suck.

It's completely the other way around. East Asia invented a bunch of things, like pasta, until they got copy sources. If you're including all of Asia, the Middle Easterners invented civilization.

They'll just copy Apple once Apple makes it. Once the Samsung watch comes out, make note of how it looks and feels before and after the Apple watch.

Samsung already has high-tech watches from the iOS era. They've already beaten Apple to the market; it's just that nobody buys them.

Sadly Apple, the brand I highly respected for years, is beginning to fall behind. Not just talking about iWatch, but in many areas they once excelled in. Adrift in a sea of uncertainty it's frustrating to watch them become fragmented.

During Tim Cooks most recent speech he goes out of his way to bash OLED, yet behind the scenes Apple just hired the worlds top OLED engineer. Talk about confused & befuddled. It makes me wonder what the truth is about the Cupertino company I could rely on for years.

From the (admittedly very little) bit I've read about it, it seems he's criticizing Samsung's oversaturated OLED screens on their Galaxy line, rather than OLED technology specifically.

Respectfully, his position on OLED has been voiced in other speeches & discussions previously. He's between a rock & a hard place. It's only natural for him to talk up retina, yet dangerously wrong to write off OLED with its indestructible flexibility and plethora of uses as smartphone design matures.

I'm limited to my iPhone 5 at the moment since I'm on a business trip. Otherwise I'd share several links I have for verification. Yet Google is quick to produce them if you're so inclined.

It's because Americans are getting too fat to fight back. And even their own kind roots for thieves of innovation and technology. Apple also seems to have a couple holes that need to be patched up. If Sony can keep their Playstation 4 a secret, why can't Apple?

For fear of sounding biased or racist, I would probably gather that the holes aren't coming from American staff either.

See, this is what happens when you pay crap wages in a foreign country to make your stuff, while the fat, white, overpaid buffalos back in the US rest on their laurels.

Apple needs a serious, serious, shake-up.

Bring our jobs back to the US. Pay Americans good money, FFS Apple... spread out the money a bit. I'm sure you can afford it.

Start a sister company that produces cheap crap like Samsung does to compete with Samsung. That way we can keep Apple as a high-end producer of things, and not some big company trying to sell cheap versions of their stuff. Apple needs all the talent it can get.

Who can imagine that Samsung is currently developing its own version of Android? Wow, we didn't see that one coming.

Samsung's profits and marketshare would suggest that what they're doing is working.

Just choose the product you like the most and enjoy it, let the lawyers worry about copyright and patent infringement.

The distortion field is alive and well

WOW. I just can't over the comments in this thread.
You would think its still 2010 and apple was still the king.

Apple has lost it. Samsung will be releasing the watch and Apple is just releasing vapourware.

Granted the iPhone was amazing in 2007. Now its fallen behind. Spend an hour with a Note 2. Do some tracing with the S Pen that Samsung R+D didn't come up with, or the Multi View function which gives you 2 iphone sized screens to multitask on. Or how about the whole phablet category itself.

Oh right, the Note 2 is too big. That is until Apple comes out with a Phablet then the size will be just right. Trust me, after you spend a little time with the larger screen...when you go back to your iPhone it will feel like your apple TV remote. A toothpick. But its just a matter of time before apple copies the Note 2.

Not to mention that iOS needs a total makeover. Rows of apps are soo 2007. Widgets that display live information are way more useful. Not to mention changing setting in the notification bar is such a no brainer. Why rifle thru menus to toggle your wifi on and off.

Oh right people were talking about Samsung just copies Apple. Maybe Apple will be copying Samsung from now on...

I think this site needs to be renamed SamsungRumors More Samsung fanboys here than Apple fans these days.

BTW, both these "watches" are vaporware at the moment.

I would LOVE for Samsung to release their watch before Apple. Because it will be interesting to see how they react when Apple releases theirs. Copy no more.

Pretty sure most people, even the most hardcore Apple apologists here, agree with that. However, many of us appreciate the benefits of true competition such that we're unwilling to lower the bar to include blatant copying as a form of competition. I've got no beef with Samsung, but I'd love to see them compete instead of mimic. Copying initiates a race-to-the-bottom mentality which hurts the market and floods stores with inferior products. Look at all the first-time smartphone buyers buying lousy Android devices because they're cheap. Is that a benefit of that kind of competition?

Wow, you've got me convinced that you're a long-time Apple user, especially when you have to keep saying it over and over again, the way nobody does ever.

Anyway, decrying the current state of some tech while hiring someone to work on it would seem to suggest that Apple is interested in exploring where it can go or what they can do with it in the future. Why is that so hard to figure out?

Steve Jobs wanted a thermonuclear war and now it is in full swing. SJ has passed on, but those who remain will face annihilation. SJ didn't realize that you don't start a thermonuclear war with another party that also has as many or more nukes and delivery systems.

Samsung is taking it to a whole new level. And by that I mean now they're copying rumors instead of waiting for the actual products.

Retina isn't a technology. It's merely a descriptive term. Talking up one against the other makes no sense.

Not just clunky looking. Watch the video; it's clunky to use too. You need two phone applications to manage it, and there's screens all over the place that you have to swipe between. The guy explains it and it seems easy, but then try and remember how to set it up unassisted. You swipe down to go to one screen, then two finger-tap to go back up or something... unintuitive. Particularly in comparison to Apple's discontinued watch, the sixth-gen iPod nano.

I don't think Apple has anything to worry about from Sony. Particularly since it's only Android-compatible.

Obviously, we can't know about them having anything to worry about from Samsung. Except that to be a threat, Samsung's would have to be iOS-compatible. And vice-versa for Apple's watch. Otherwise, they're not really in direct competition, any more than iPhone docks are in competition with Galaxy docks.
