Can't see it ever getting to "must have" status like ipod/iphone/ipad. For this reason I feel like Jobs wouldn't have released it (nor would he have brought out U2 to perform in 2014).

This is the part I don't understand about smart watches at all.

That shit is today's equivalent of those black Casio calculator watches from the 80's

I had a black digital Casio in the 80's. No calculator though.

Marc Newson. If Ikepod made a square watch it would look like this.

It was only announced last week that he is joining them, so I don't think he has had in designing it.

I was thinking Braun Bn10, the black, yellow, white combo is also very Braun clocks.

@Kaplan, did you see the 10 o'clock news tonight, where they visited Klarlund?

I was laughing my ass of, when the speaker said, manual watches can only do one thing tell time.
