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.

Then you have a very cool mate.

The most amazing are these 19th century pocket watches. It's a blend between art, technology, history and for that time (no pun intended) perhaps a touch of science fiction. It's also a period where things were made to last, not to expire like stuff is now.

It's hard, well impossible more likely, to image what a pocket watch did to someone living in a society that isn't so time driven as ours is now. I guess people often asked you what time it was. Nobody does that anymore now.

In fact, it's very hard not to know what time it is these days. But it was back then and if you had a pocket watch you did know.

I don't know about that - I think there was lots of rubbish, too. We rarely remember it because... it didn't survive to our times.

And with watches there's also the issue of accuracy, not merely if it works or not.

I think MOS's statement was a fair one. Things are made much cheaper these days, but then that's the price we pay for wanting to pay less for goods. The upshot is that watches are now affordable where as once upon a time they weren't to a great majority of people.

I guess you have a point there. Well, at least they didn't on purpose made something crappy.
