Apple Watch

I remember waiting for the Dick Tracy feature on the Apple Watch. I didn’t watch the announcement, just refreshed one of those Apple news sites with the auto-reloading feed you don’t have to refresh. I waited for the Dick Tracy watch. All you needed was a very small FaceTime camera. Surely there’d be some kind of FaceTime camera. But then there wasn’t. And all of a sudden the Apple Watch just became a better FitBit. Right? No. It didn’t launch like the iPhone or even the iPad. It launched like the iPod. Something cool, but nothing something you actually think you need. My sister had an iPod for years before I ever got one. I’d only recently discovered you could buy CDs direct from the UK (thanks to the Internet) and I had no interest in giving up that hard-built collection.
