Loving your artful explanation of Apple, which besides being entertaining has the side benefit of being true.
One thing I see differently. Tim Cook is much different than Steve Jobs. He is less patient, which is why I believe they released the watch too early. Steve would have waited until the reasons for other watches failures were clear.
Tim didn’t wait, but this will work out, because he has a vision. His Charlie Rose interview made clear he believes in wearables.
So do I. I believe wearables will one day receive our calls, give us directions, and a number of other capabilities. Imagine the Amazon Echo in watch form, or accessed through a Bluetooth headset for privacy.
No smartphone required!
As they say in ‘Angels on the Outfield,’ “it could happen!”.
