I admit it. I love my wearables. I love competing against my former CTO and out-walking him. (It may be a rare day, but it’s a good one.) I love that my mother, who lives thousands of miles away, has the ability to call for help via her Lifeline. It’s one less worry in a sea of worries.
But my love, and patience, is being tested. With all the Apple Watch enthusiasm, and the blockbuster early sales of the iPhone 6, I find that there is a growing pit in my stomach. I find myself not laughing nearly as hard at the South Park episode where the "Apple Police" pursue Kyle for clicking on the iTunes Terms of Service (TOS). When the grain of truth turns into a bushel, well, it’s just not funny.
Apple Watch and iPhone 6 provide two more powerful platforms to do things like record our voices with little disclosure.
