Funny, the Apple Watch came out and nobody is talking about it already.

    Is like it never happened. At the end is nothing revolutionary, it is just an accessory, they should have released as such.

    I forgot it was even coming out. I have absolutely no interest in it and will stick with the fitness watches I have. Maybe in a few years and after some enhancements it will generate a little bit of interest in me.

    Looking back, this is similar to the postings from people just before Apple started selling the iPhone :D.

    It may sell or not sell but at least give it a year to see how it does.

    Unless I'm misremembering, the iPhone had a lot of media interest from when it was announced to when it was released (about a half a year gap).

    This is stupid. The watch DID NOT come out yet. Nothing to talk about yet in the outside world. We will get some stories on pre order day and then it will wake up when the watch is ACTUALLY OUT.

    I for one am really excited for the launch of Apple Watch, but I don't have to keep preaching my thoughts about it online/in person.

    Funny, I remember people saying "It's just a big iPhone who needs that? haha" about the iPad.

    Ironic thread is ironic.

    It is not even out yet. Even who would love it to fail will not stop talking about it. :D

    Thanks for the reminder. :cool:

    You guys may need to cook up a rule around "I told ya so" soon. There's going to be mass quantities of crow consumed over the next few months. ;)

    Pretty sure the Apple Watch has seen a lot of media attention as well.

    It's so uninteresting, and so few people are talking about it, that I'll go out of my way to seek out forums strictly concerning the watch and tell people how uninterested everyone is. Or I'm actually interested, at least subconsciously, hence my presence on forums 100% devoted to Watch. Apple has nothing to worry about if their product can invoke interest in people who say they are totally uninterested.

    We'll be ready. :cool:

    We've just got to wait to see who will be doing the crowing and who will be eating it. :D

    Reminds me of a thread a few weeks back when someone argued with me that it should be 'totally fine' to shower with good quality leather bands. He was trying to say that my past issues with wet leather wallets going through a washing machine were just because I only had cheap leather.

    THEN of course Apple puts out a disclaimer saying not to get the leather bands wet. :D

    BTW: What happened to the folks that expected the SS watch to be $350 and the sport would be $250 even though Apple always said Starting at $349?

    First, the Apple Watch has NOT come out yet....
    Second, the Apple Watch is being talked about like crazy. Look at this forum. It's going crazy with comments.

    I do not understand why you posted.

    The only explanation I can think of is that they don't think it is being discussed much outside of the world of technology (it was originally posted in the Current Events forum :confused:).

    It's certainly a hot topic here on MacRumors. :)

    are there any rules about trolling headlines, like saying that the Apple Watch has came out and nobody is talking about it already (wait, isn't there a whole section on this site about the Watch?)

    There will be plenty of hype when it actually releases. I personally am very interested in how pre-ordering is going to go; will it be as big a fiasco as the iPhone 6 pre-order was, or will demand be low enough that Apple can weather the storm? Ask me again at 2am on April 10th.

    That's being a bit of a Buzz Killington. In itself, that was quite a humerous remark. We all know where the rules are, let people make a mistake before wagging your finger.

    I would guess there are many waiting to see how it does. They don't want to risk being embarrassed about wearing this knowing how much it costs and not knowing what reaction they'll get.

    No finger wagging, just a friendly reminder (note the smiley on the end).

    We'd rather members didn't break the rules in the first place. It makes our job a lot easier.
