    I can’t listen to this at work. Why no transcript to read?

    Most of these watches are doomed for failure. It doesn’t matter how elegant the OS is, or how responsive the touchscreen is, or even how vibrant the display is. Each time you touch the screen you black out a huge portion of display. Can you imagine if you have an oversized hand. Guess what most men do. A possible solution would be the pointing device from Crucialtec. How else would they do it?

    I dislike wearing watches but I’m beginning to get it. Add up the possible medical features with readings that require wristbands. Add all the exercise features already using wrist sensors. Cue Nike. Input using a localized Siri for timers and reminders. Put on a big red emergency alert button for folks who fall down stairs. Do location monitoring for folks who need that. Inside, superb, souped up technology from those Apple tech labs. Throw in a little solar panel, just for the heck of it.

    It’s not a watch. Others have/will do watches. Apple wouldn’t do a watch. It does multiple market disruption. And it loves the engineering and design challenges of small and simple computers. Nobody does small and simple better. At $200 it will sell a milliard units. OK, $199. OK, maybe not a billiard. Just saying: whatever it does, don’t bet on being smarter than Apple. That’s been a losing position for over a decade.
