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.

Deep in the R&D labs of the like os Samsung, Microsoft, Apple, Google etc there are probably a bunch of people who look at things like the S-E device and try to take the ideas to the next step.
They evaluate the technology, try it out and then do some crystal ball gazing as to where that bit of tech might go PLUS how it might be integrated into the current and future product set that their company is selling/developing. The 'How cool is that team'.

If they didn't do this then that company is most certainly going to be left way behind the competition over 3-4 product cycles.

Therefore, IMHO this is not really news. What would be news would be release of information that company X was never going to use Tech Y in their products.
