Daring Fireball: Apple Watch: Initial Thoughts and Observations


[I don’t think] Apple Watch in particular is what Apple thinks was “historic” about last week’s event. Rather, I think Apple Watch is the first product from an Apple that has outgrown the computer industry. Rather than settle for making computing devices, they are now using computing technology to make anything and everything where computing technology — particularly miniature technology — can revolutionize existing industries… Apple Watch isn’t merely Apple’s foray into the watch industry — it’s their foray outside the computer/consumer electronics industry. I think they’re just getting started.

I really do hope the steel one doesn’t cost a grand though. It better be Valyrian steel at those prices.
