The iWatch

Sat Mar 21, 2015, 5:03 PM by Leonidas666:iconleonidas666:
The "iWatch" is got to be the worst thing Apple ever put on this Earth.

There was a time when Apple aligned great technology with unique design. I remember when the first iPod came out (yes, I am that old) everyone criticized the white color, the plastic texture, the head-phones...everyone even bought different color head phones just not to be noticed.
And them, it became trendy, it became hip, it became Apple. White head-phones were a 'must have' and everyone wanted them, even if they didn't had an iPod, it was just to be "in".
Steve Jobs had that vision. The iWatch does not.
It's just an overpriced small screen to do (not) everything you already do on your iPhone and it doesn't even stand out...for bad of for worse. It's just something that every little girl with too much of daddy's money is going to want to have. Apple has become a slave to its biggest costumers and left his hard-core fans behind. It abandon the 'nerds' and the 'geeks' and decided to be 'fashion' and 'hipster'. This time they will do lots of heavy marketing and have lots of promo celebreties to endorse their new product, but in the olden days they didn't have to. Word of mouth, freshness, quality and innovation ran the show back then.

I did my own little render of what I expected, even wanted, the new iWatch to be. Love or hate it, you would see it from a mille away and you would recognize it... Just like the iPod.
Apple, were is the 12" iPad Pro artists and designer are calling for? Were is the Macbook touch that will allow us to use all the multimedia software and is going to compete with Surface but with much better OS? Were is the watch that will envy all other gadjets? I don't see it coming in the next few years... Oh, I would still buy one of your computers in comparison to Windows (if I could affort it) because I know they are that much better, but not any of your other products you have been putting out since Steve passed away (bless his soul).

All I see is a company that as lost it's vision, lost it's edge... Even, lost it's purpose.
