This wasn't Grignon's typical route to work. He was a senior engineer at Apple in Cupertino, the town just west of Campbell. His morning drive typically covered seven miles and took exactly 15 minutes. But today was different. He was going to watch his boss, Steve Jobs, make history at the Macworld trade show in San Francisco. Apple fans had for years begged Jobs to put a cellphone inside their iPods so they could stop carrying two devices in their pockets. Jobs was about to fulfill that wish. Grignon and some colleagues would spend the night at a nearby hotel, and around 10 a.m. the following day they - along with the rest of the world - would watch Jobs unveil the first iPhone.

" It would still be something original. SmartTV and watches are so terribly boring!

Smart TVs are boring, smart watches are absolutely useless. At least a smart TV would have practical uses; I still can't figure out the purpose of a smart watch and I've been trying.

You're missing the big picture. Until we can talk into our smart watch and have our smart car drive itself from the parking garage to where we are, we have failed as a society to live up to Knight Rider's promise of the future.
