Humor: The real plan behind the Apple Watch

Humor: The real plan behind the Apple Watch
It’s weird how humor can reflect ideas that in some ways, do not seem so far-fetched. Take the classic sci-fi movie, Blade Runner. Set in a future where androids serve in a variety of capacities throughout society, “replicants” are the product of the fictional Tyrell Corporation, “more human than human” being the motto.

Take that same setting, the sun rises, barely piercing into a dark hall where big ideas are being discussed. Except, instead of it being Los Angeles in the future, it is Cupertino in the past. Tim Cook is hatching an idea for the “most personal product” Apple has ever produced.

We’re heard it before, technology as a way to touch our most personal thoughts and feelings. Indeed, it’s not about attracting more customers, it’s about making them. Sound sort of creepy? Maybe, but does it sound completely off-the-wall? With the Apple Watch’s clever ways to “touch” those we care about through a gadget on our wrist, be it a heartbeat or doodle, it could spark a new phenomenon, Apple Watch Baby Boom…or not.

funny stuff , but not true , a joke is funnier if true Apple never chased after customers and marketshare, thats a very Microsoft thing to do, even Samsung thing by trying to be everything to everybody, but the s6 did change that philosophy though.

Oh, is that why Apple sued a lot of Android OEMS including Samsung. Because Apple was not chasing after market share at all. Everyone knows how Apple is open and giving, and it shows in the pricing of Apples products. Especially how they don't want to make too much money by ripping off people. How they control and stop jail breaking. Apple is a good guy company, especially when they are thinking of helping the customers wallet. Everyone sees the truth in what I am saying, right.

Exactly, if they didn't want increased market share, they wouldn't release 8GB versions of their phones for emerging markets.

Wrong, Apple was trying and protect their current share not increase it, if they wanted to increase it they would follow the pack, not do their own thing and "think differently".

Your right, Apple is not following the pack by making larger phones and putting on higher resolution screens. They use to have the perfect 4" smart phone before. Then they innovated and made larger phones. Apple is so original original.
