To start, simply click on the icon of the resource or activity that best describes what you want to do and follow an option to see how to use that material legally and where to find more information.

A Watch Guy's Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos)

A Watch Guy's Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos) | Apple in Business | Scoop.it
I'm not even sure we can call it a watch. Okay, it goes on the wrist, and
it happens to tell the time, but that's about where the similarities
between Apple's just announced watch and the hand-assembled, often
painstakingly finished mechanical watches we write about, and obsess over,
end. I was lucky enough to be invited to Cupertino to witness the
announcement of the Apple Watch firsthand, and though I do not believe it
poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch
will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some
entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger
threat to higher end brands, too. The reason? Apple got more details right
on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with
similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive
piece of design. It offers so much more functionality than other digitals
it's almost embarrassing. But it's not perfect, by any means. Read on to
hear my thoughts on the Apple Watch, from the perspective of a watch guy.
Oh, and there are dozens of in-the-metal pictures, too.
John Rudkin's insight:

This is a staggeringly good review.....by a watch expert, not a technology writer.
