To be fair, that's better than getting an allergic reaction or sustaining a chemical burn from the regular material.  ;)

Re: Wow, still don't get it
I wouldn't want to read emails on an iwatch; the screen is tiny.  Unless, I tell recipients to start sending one line emails.  You can already set up the iwatch to receive your emails. I think for reading text messages is fine.  I agree with everyone that Apple is running out of ideas, after all these years of innovation, it is finally slowing down. But in tech if you slow down, others will catch up with you.

@jastroff     Well their strategy seems to be working - I am saving for a newer model as we speak.

I guess we should be thankful that the infustry standardized on power plugs. 

Lots of places are working on batteries, new ideas, but Apple would rather sell everyone a new Mac Book Pro, etc

Re: Wow, still don't get it
They probably could figure it out if they wanted to...but, you know, planned obsolescence and all...

@vnewman2: Different skillsets, different "genres" of craftsmanship.

Perhaps someday the programming of today will seem quaint.

Of course, another big difference is that classic Swiss timepieces aren't made on an assembly line.

Re: Wow, still don't get it

@progman2000   I just don't get this either - everyone has a phone that can do the same thing.  Is Apple running out of ideas or what ?

 

I would be much more impressed if Apple would figure out how to extend the battery life and reduce the heat expelled by my five year old Mac Book Pro.

Re: No Gee Whiz Factor Here

@Joe  Your Dad was way ahead of the times - I did not know of this kind of technology in the 90's , but then again I was a poor college student during that time so I know I wasn't thinking about that kind of thing.

Re: Wow, still don't get it
@Joe  Same here - the only computer I would like to see in that case would be on my Flat - screen.  And even that would be rare.
