The  Watch cometh. Apple is releasing a new thing in just a couple of weeks. You can tell. The punditbots are going gorilla fecal matter over the thing. Most of the commentary I’ve read has been negative. The  Watch will not sell well The  Watch is ugly The  Watch is technically inferior The  Watch will further isolate […]

The Super Bowl Redux

February 2nd, 2015 · Comments Off · General Detritus
