The Apple Watch (née iWatch) was finally announced during Tuesday's September 9th media event. The company's first foray into wearables demonstrates what makes Apple different from its competitors, its ability to engineer a device from the ground up to work in ways no one else has imagined.
Not only did Apple introduce two fabulous iPhones the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but also started the process of changing the world with Apple Pay and Apple Watch. Again. John Martellaro ponders the significance.
The iWatch could radically change our personal security in ways that haven't been discussed. John Martellaro takes to flights of technical fantasy and finally reveals what he hopes the iWatch will do that would completely catch the competition off guard.
It's one thing for a company that makes great hardware to move into wearables. It's quite another to delve into mobile payments. But the two are linked in ways we don't yet appreciate.
Apple's September 9 event won't be about techy things that bloggers want. It won't even be about what the best minds of the Mac Web think Apple needs to deliver. Rather, it'll be about delivering a remarkable, convincing vision that captures our imagination and enthusiasm for a better future.
Why do people stand in line every year for a new iPhone? Why is iPhone technology changing so fast? Conversely, why are iPad sales more or less ho-hum? Why isn't iPad technology exploding? John Martellaro reflects on the situation.

The evolution of technology often results in frustrating corporate pratfalls. Companies, desperate for growth, perhaps survival, make decisions that annoy, even alarm us. Why doesn't that happen to Apple? John explains.
