    I'm thinking no. Remember how the iPad got that label at first?

    Now i'm not particularly hesitant, which is strange actually, as this thing is really pretty hard core :D

    Only time will tell :)

    Most likely no.

    Apple has already branded Apple Watch as a well designed jewelry like fashion object.

    Also, why do you care about that? Everyone of us should be able to be ourselves and use stuff we like without being labelled.

    Everybody has "geeky" items these days. I think the term is getting outdated.

    Actually, Apple products are a sign that you've been a 'geek' for a while, and very successful at it. Go to any Google conference, or any conference for any company in Silicon Valley, and most of the geeks who attend have Apple Laptops and Apple phones. These are the people who are making real money freelancing or at their companies and use the best technology that doesn't get in their way. Plus, Apple technology can make them money more than Android technology can.

    The wanna-be geeks are the ones with Android phones. They think it's really cool to 'move icons around', 'change their theme', 'move widgets around', etc. All, really, just time-wasting activities. But it makes them THINK they are 'real' geeks. To each their own, fine. But I've rarely met someone who's really good at software using Android devices. They're out there, it happens, but it's more rare than tech people using Apple products.

    People who work in software for a living understand their phone and laptop are meant for productivity, not geeking around. They want to make money, not just fiddling around.

    When it comes to electronic gadgets it's a given that any new product is going to attract "geeks." We are the early adopters. The question then becomes, does that product devolve into a nerd product or evolve into a mainstream one. If the product is clunky or hard to use it goes nerd. If it's cool, elegant, and simple it goes mainstream.
