Apple’s iWatch is a wonderful amazing revolutionary product that does not exist. But it feels like it’s just around the corner, doesn’t it? Like it’s hiding in plain sight. Which is why it’s hilarious to watch Jimmy Kimmel dupe people into thinking a dummy Casio is Apple’s rumoured smartwatch.
Some of these poor credulous people respond so helplessly to the power of suggestion that I feel bad for them. Do you like that it tells the date as well as the time? “Yes, I think that’s a neat feature actually.” Have people so completely forgotten what it’s like to have a watch that the basic functionality of a timepiece astounds them? What’s old is new again it seems. [The Tech Block]
