Two Month Wait For iWatch

I read there’s a two month wait for the iWatch. That’s a long time to wait for an order. I’m not sure if Apple purposely designed this to create demand or maybe there are manufacturing issues indeed. Probably the latter. Nevertheless, it’s a long time to wait.

Apple Watch Revealed Today

Apple revealed today, the Apple Watch. It starts out at $349 with some watches as high as $10k. Pre-orders can begin April 10. Apple stores will start selling on April 24, most likely you’ll need a reservation. You just can’t walk into a store and get one, at least not in the first few weeks after its release. Here’s an article from ZDNet, PCMag, Gizmodo, ComputerWorld, and Lifehacker.

Lost in the hoopla is the reduced price of the Apple TV. It’s now sells for only $69. Let’s not forget the new super-thin Macbook. It’s thinner and lighter than the MacBook Air. It’s powered by Intel Core M. It’s fan-less and has a single USB C port that allows you to connect to everything. Gone are the USB 3.0 ports and the Display port. You have to buy a $79 dongle if you want connect to other devices or displays. I think the MacBook is a little bit underpowered. It’s a almost a cross between a tablet and laptop. The MacBook starts at $1299 and $1599.

Would You Buy An Apple Watch?

Would you buy an Apple Watch? For $350 a pop. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a watch that expensive. But, it’s not just any watch. It’s a smartwatch, a wearable device! This particular wearable device will most likely run hundred of apps, including the ability to track your activity when exercising. Will the Apple Watch kill Fitbit? What about privacy?
