“Apple’s new retail chief Angela Ahrendts is a watch lady,” Lessin writes in her blog. “I also hear she took particular interest in the watch retailing space in Burberry stores.”
All of this might be a pure coincidence, but in either case Ahrendts obsession with watches is welcome for Apple as the whole tech industry is expecting the wearables revolution to finally start taking place soon. If a possible iWatch indeed gets released next year as current rumor goes, Apple will have enough time to market and merchandize it in a truly remarkable way.
