    Horace, I hope you write the book on Apple. Or on melding creativity with commoditized goods.

    @horace I think you hinted that iPod could be the name Apple’s wearable wears, no? I’ve always loved my 6th gen iPod nano and thought that in several ways it was one of the best Apple products made.

    One thing that intrigues me is how they’ll demo the UI at the event. I think you’re right about iOS for wearables, and my money is on AirPlay for the demo. One question will be whether it’s enabled on the demo unit only, or if Apple sees use cases for including AirPlay on shipping devices.

      Only problem I see with that, is that the iPod is synonymous with music. I would think that Apple would want to give it a different branding so it resonates with something related to more than just music.

    The quality of streaming the keynote today was an embarrassment. Glitches, 2 soundtracks playing simultaneously and finally, Chinese translation stepping on Tim Cooks presentation. How can a company so good at products and process be so bad at streaming crucial presentations???

      I can only imagine how many billions were watching it simultaneously, and thus conclude that the bandwidth was severely taxed.
