I still wear a Casio Data Bank calculator watch and don't own a mobile phone.

Smart watches are one of the dumbest ideas in a long time. A lot of the younger generation don't even wear watches. No reason to, their phone has everything they need.

Surprised that Apple thinks this will fly when it has no chance in hell.
I don't mind smartwatches if they are stand alone (not requiring a smartphone). I still wear a Casio Data Bank calculator watch and don't own a mobile phone.

Jobs is gone. He didn't design but he had overall vision. Take one look at IOS 7- it's a train wreck visually. Everyone hated the fuck out of Windows Metro so Apple decided they had to do their own riff on it. Office 2013 decided that flat UI and black & white is the way to go and somehow Apple agreed. In this light, are the watches *really* that odd?

I also suspect they'll just flat replace the ipod nano.

Less of a train wreck than iOS had been. Less coherent, but man, thank god notepad isn't a damn lined legal pad, thank god calendar no longer has leather accents, etc.

Moronic design.
