1:17 PM, Apr. 8th, 2015 · Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

The Wall Street Journal posted a video with reporter Joanna Stern walking us through a fictional day in the life with an Apple Watch. Part tongue-in-cheek, part serious attempt to show us the Apple Watch with a POV camera, Ms. Stern's video offers a mixed review on the device.

The young people with their twitter tweets and facespaces and tap screens and hoohaws! They're ruining America! They're zombies! Faces all mashed into the shiny...and Apple and its retail stores and those iPhones and iPads are at the center of it! Or so Bill O'Reilly of Fox News would have us believe.
