    He is delusional at best and I rarely take anything he says seriously
    He has become nothing more than a sound bite and click bait/fodder

    Unless you plan for it to stick some needle into you, highly doubtful.

    Hah. Thank you. I was about to post almost the same thing. These days he's, sadly, little more than a media whore desperately clinging for relevance.

    I believe Apple has been working on this capability, but from all indications the results are not consistent and accurate enough.

    Will probably happen eventually, but I seriously doubt it will make it in the first generation.

    I'm sick of Woz, especially every time he's out there spouting off what Apple should be doing. Shouldn't he be doing that in private? I'm sure Tim Cook would take his call anytime.

    If it weren't for Woz being the type to overlook things like Jobs cheating him, the latter would've likely ended up selling used cars in San Jose. At best. And there'd be no Apple.

    So be nice to him :)

    It'll have to, unless they want unfavorable reviews to the Microsoft Band and the bevy of sports bands out there.

    Yeah in without Steve Jobs Apple wouldn't be the most valuable company in the world. With Woz it probably would never have gotten out of the garage. :)

    I like Woz

    Without Woz there would be no Apple. Steve was great for his vision and marketing. Love Steve but Woz made the technical stuff happen. Both men were vitally important to move a garage company employing 2 to the company we know today.

    Props to Woz.

    Keep in mind that it would probably have to pass some kind of FDA approval to be considered medically sound also. That isn't happening quickly!

    As a diabetic myself I'd be all over it but the sad reality is that it'll butt headfirst into the big drug producers that like the recurring revenue stream from test strips. Perfect razor/razor blade model there and you'd hit them right in the cash cow.

    Who cares? Wozniak has been a court jester for over 30 years. Yawn.
