It's a watch...

..with a really cool interface and the ability for developers to make it display and manipulate just about anything. With a quick glance at your wrist you can get whatever information is needed.

It only has heart rate sensing built in, but additional 3rd party health sensors can go in your ear, around your neck, or up your wazzoo and the watch will give you quick feedback.

Apple hasn't provided a killer app, but every individual will eventually be able to download the app that is killer for them.

No need for the watch to do everything for everyone out of the box. That wouldn't be cost effective. It just needs the ability to do anything for anyone.

Interesting…

According to a story I just read, the latest iPad Air2, with the A8X processor is faster than a (just) 3-years-ago MacBookAir.

I think these mobile processors are getting very close to changing the form factor of laptops again. Who needs a Microsoft Surface tablet and click-on keyboard, when you can just pickup a MacBook Air that's a couple millimeters thicker than the current iPadAir?

WSJ. MAGAZINE 2014 INNOVATOR AWARDS - ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s School for Innovation

After the runaway success of Beats—recently bought by Apple for $3 billion—the duo is launching a new academy at the University of Southern California with the goal of inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs

Nov 5, 2014
.

... Now Dre and Iovine are using $70 million to fund their school.

As Iovine explains it, the school is as much an investment in their own future as it is philanthropy. “We wanted to build a school that we feel is what the entertainment industry needs right now,” he says. “There’s a new kid in town, and he’s brought up on an iPad from one and a half years old. But the problem with some of the companies up north [in Silicon Valley] is that they really are culturally inept. I’ve been shocked at the different species in Northern and Southern California—we don’t even speak the same language. The kid who’s going to have an advantage in the entertainment industry today is the kid who speaks both languages: technology and liberal arts. That’s what this school is about.

“The problem with the school system is that a lot of it’s cookie-cutter,” he adds, “so what we’re trying to do is disrupt it a bit.”

.

Beats started with a chance run-in on the beach. Iovine was in Malibu, at his friend David Geffen ’s house, when he decided to go for a stroll. He happened upon Dr. Dre, who was out on the balcony of his own house nearby. Dre told him he’d been approached a few days earlier by an athletic company about doing a shoe line; his lawyer wanted him to do it, but Dre wasn’t sure. (“I’m not into fashion,” he says. “I wear the same s— every day.”) He asked Iovine for his thoughts. Iovine’s immortal response: “F— sneakers—let’s make speakers.”

“It’s a good thing they didn’t want to sell aluminum,” Iovine jokes now. “I’m not sure what rhymes with that.”
