Apple considers wristwatch-styled device using curved glass

0. phoneArena 10 Feb 2013, 13:37 posted on

More than one source told the New York Times that Apple is using its unique understanding on how glass curves around the human body to work on a wristwatch styled device that would run on iOS; not much is known about which features Apple would put on the device, although Siri would seem a natural for such a product...

I think this was the only thing I didn't like about the iPod Nano update. You couldn't wear them as watches anymore. This would be rather cool.

Nah, i'll stick to normal watches... I don't know why but a wristwatch with a dial looks pretty good to me.
For all the talking, tapping, typing, listening, watching...there's the mobile phone.

That's what people used to say about smartphones: why bother with one when you can just get the internet on a regular computer? A regular cell-phone looks pretty good to me, leave all the typing, watching, and browsing to laptops and desktops.

You misunderstood... Read the 1st part...that's my answer. The 2nd part was just an added joke.
I love watches that have sporty looks...you know, multiple dials, chronograph and all those stuff.
I don't think an iWatch is going to look that way, going by the conventional way the work...no sir.

Would rather stick to more of a conventional watch and not look stupid tapping and touching all over the body and phone ... just for heck of it. A wrist watch with roman numerals hour/min/sec hand looks so cool and aristocratic.

This is what Apple needs to do to stay relevant. Their strength has always been exploiting untapped markets, their weakness has always been remaining relevant afterwards. If they can popularize smartwatches they can avert attention from their lackluster smartphones.

Apple will always be relevant. Innovation will never die.

Even the cofounder of Apple sees that their innovation is severely lacking, and they've been passed by Samsung and Android general.

You sound like some zealous, religious headcase when you say stuff like that. Apple will only be relevant as long as it remains innovative. To assume that it will always remain innovative forever is to be either naive or arrogant.

Innovation means much more than mere invention. Just because the modern automobile was invented over a century ago doesn't mean great innovations in the automotive sector aren't taking place even now. Apple has been very innovative in marketing and design over the last few years, despite using existing technologies in their products.

So Apple is copying d**k TRACY? That was such a classic movie. and it will be as expensive as buying a JACOB WATCH or any expensive watch.
