Time Will Tell: The Apple Watch Revisited, October 2015

   “But let’s not celebrate Apple’s success just yet! They are far behind their initial predicted Watch sales figures of 40m and that’s not all that bothers me.”

Excerpt …
““At the start of the year I predicted some key technology trends for 2015, one of which was wearables, although I was unconvinced by the, then new, Apple Watch and where it was headed. You see, for me, my smartphone is my first port of call for obtaining the time and date and I have numerous tones set for my reminders, so I immediately know whether I have a new text message or email.

Her Personal Wrist Assistant
When it comes to a first-hand (excuse the pun) review however, my wife (Sarah) couldn’t disagree with me more, describing her Apple Watch as her personal wrist assistant and praising its virtues on an almost daily basis.

For me, technological evolution can so often start with the whimsy of a daydream or a childhood tale, from which the spark of what might just be theoretically possible transcends into reality.

Lightning strikes!
It’s part of the excitement of working in the industry that I’m so honoured to be a part of and part of what makes broadcasting technology an on-going journey of sometimes awe-inspiring discovery. The wife and I were watching one of our all-time favourite movies the other day, Back to the Future and, just as lighting struck the clock tower, a realisation struck me too. ”
