Apple "According to Chinese gadget news site Tech.163, Apple may be in the process of developing its own smart watch that connects to your Apple devices via Bluetooth. Based on the report, Intel will be working with Apple to create the smart watch, with a 1.5-inch PMOLED display made by RiTDisplays with ITO-coated glass." It must be the holiday lull. I'm this close to putting this in the joke category.

My jokes are often presented in a serious way and cause such reactions to my sadistic amusement. :-p

I don't think the screens needs to be very big. It's only used for time and notifications, perhaps some media controls. Voice control (Siri)?

But to succeed it needs to have some good specifications and not be made from cheap material, this will drive the price up, add to this profit margin and it may become an expensive watch. Add a little more money and you got yourself a (small) tablet.

So I do think an Apple watch can be useful, but I doubt it can be good AND affordable AND make Apple enough money for them to go ahead with it. I guess they would if millions of Android users would dance in the rain with their Android watches, but they aren't so Apple might not do it.
