A series of reports this week in the US have all but confirmed that Apple is developing a "smart watch"...
...Apple reportedly has a team of 100 product designers working on the project, indicating it is beyond the experimentation phase and heading towards production...
...it is another sign the industry is convinced wearable technology is a mainstream proposition...


Really? This reminds me of those old wearable calculators we had back in the day, you remember; those little LCD ones with soft buttons and large display's, with some even sporting scientific functions. Or those "chronograph" watches.
They were so nerdy! I still cringe thinking about it :lol: Is there really a strong market for such devices today?

So the new crop will be wirelessly connected to your iPhone, giving you remote control of your phone (apparently a phone will be much more handy when attached to the wrist).

I assume we will speak into them like Dick Tracy of yore too, holding them to our ears when in a noisy environment.

Seriously? I have some difficulty with the idea. It may be just my bias due to uncomfortable memories of dorky calculators, but really?
