Serious question - the new iWatch - do you think it will be a hit or a flop?

Would you buy one?

Might be popular if it has all the health related functions that seem popular at the moment. Or is that just a fad?

Music on your wrist might be a bonus.

Of course, this has all be foretold...

Those wool/cashmere knits don't look overly 'wintery' in the pics (I was looking at the green one). Think you could wear them in summer or would they look out of place? Cheers

Not really summer appropriate if I'm honest. Still plenty of winter left though to enjoy it!

My LL Bean Field Coat arrived today wore it out earlier and been wearing my Pea Coat a few times, weather is perfect for it.

To some extent, I believe Apple is now trying to compete against fashion or prestige brands, distinctly different from competing against other technology where functionality, innovation and ease of use is key. They are against a different kind of competition, labels where the functionality and quality is often secondary to the value in the brand. I think unlike other devices, it would not be appropriate in a professional environment. Perhaps I'm wrong, and it's just competition for other exercise watches out there and not expected to appeal to those who want a dress watch.

I think it will look weird at first and everyone will ask what kind of non existent market they are aiming for.... And then in 5 years everyone will have one.

I think this is still pretty much at the core of what Apple tries to do (yes, I just did that).

Have you seen this Ted talk about Apple and the 'why'? Interesting.

They do look good, don't they?

 

Incidentally, for any Brisbanites who may be interested, the made-to-order G.Inglese shirts carried by Deer Style are available in a model with a one-piece, capri- or camp-style collar. Unfortunately, Rene's photos don't really do the wonderful collars justice, but you can get a bit of a look at them in a couple of photos. They look excellent with knit ties.

Legitimately, best Ted talks video. Very very clever guy. 

 

Next one would be the visualising stats one, and then the less is more micro apartment one.

IMHO the last really game-changing device Apple released was the iPhone. When it was announced, I was meh. Then I handled one and was shown how it was organised and how it functioned, with all the gestures and zooming and swiping and neat stuff, and iGot it. Rushed straight out and bought one - had to jailbreak it for use with my Telstra SIM card, but I did that gladly.

 

The iPhone concept was just so overwhelmingly brilliant and well-thought-out, what with effortless syncing to one's computer, the iTunes Store, and of course their masterstroke: third-party apps. Suddenly a hand-held device made perfect sense. I had owned, and been a loyal user of, a PalmPilot for over eight years at that point. But the PP had limited functionality, was too big and thick, had a crappy screen, clunky GUI, terrible input methodology, and all sorts of other faults. The iPhone just swept all those rubbishy attempts at smartphones away in one fell stroke.

 

iPads are ok, just entertainment tools really. You don't really "need" one. The iPhone though (and the various copycat devices that proliferated in its wake, which are admittedly just as good and indeed perform better in some respects) - once such a device exists, it instantly becomes a necessary tool in one's personal armamentarium.

 

I can't see Apple ever topping that device for sheer brilliance. The absolute pinnacle for them came about a year before Jobs' death, when they had the iPhone, the iPad, iCloud, syncing across devices, the iTunes Store and the App Store all enabled and cooking. Where the hell do you go from there?
