    People still wear watches? Funny, you sure don't see many people wearing them now days. Smartphones do it all. So instead of pulling my iPhone out, I can just pretend its not there and use this watch thingy to control it.

    Blowing minds

    The Swiss watch industrys 40 bn annual revenue disagrees with you.

    They should rename this thing the "iFlop".

    I don't know any human being who could possibly want this thing.

    The pebble sold a ton and I'm sure a lot will want this. On a side note no ones cares what someone who signed up today for this site has to say

    I think they're more likely to call it the Android Watch than they are to call it an iPod. In other words, no chance at all. It's clearly not an iPod and naming it that would only cause consumer confusion.

    I would have hoped for a smaller screen with more relevant information, more of a health focus.

    I found it's funny that people so readily judge something that is still completely non-existent. :confused:

    But it happens to Apple products most of the time. :apple:

    Oh yeah. It sold so much that I have never once seen anyone... anywhere... wearing one. Ever. The iFlop is going to be a total disaster.

    And I didn't sing up today. Not that it really matters.

    Going by that logic, shouldn't they have used something other than "iPhone" for their music, calling, and internet communications device? It's far more than a phone, after all...

    I am sure it will have a similar lock out feature like the iphone otherwise thefts will skyrocket.

    Geometry can be such a pain!


    Geometry doesn't seem to be your strong point: Woz's wrist is 'wide' not long. Woz's watch is circular and the "slightly rectangular" rumoured iWatch has corners that stick out (from a circular diameter) that give it the extra diagonal dimensions.

    No matter what, a nearly square shape with 2.5 inch diagonal will look silly on more than 70% of the population including women.

    A thin rectangular shape would be much more palatable although the screen would have to be curved.

    Yep, it's a shame that apple welded the keyboard to the front and you can't buy another keyboard...

    Great story, you should save that one for a party.

    So a device you haven't seen, or used, is DOA? That's a logical fallacy.

    Are you honestly comparing the general public's health to home screen widgets..?

    Maybe. Maybe not. But people still buy many $Billion dollars of them every year. Even if to stick 'em in the bottoms of drawers, Apple wants some of that drawer space. A few $Billion worth of drawer space will do.

    But, if they exist, I bet lots of people will wear them... millions of people... for the same reason they wear the same (expensive but mediocre fidelity) Beats headphones and buds that famous athletes wear.

    The new iOS supposedly has home screen widgets. A bunch of Android fanboys were crying foul about it on another forum. LOL
