Oh come on, this is science fiction. That thing you wear on your wrist? It’s gonna Facetime for you, and be controlled by voice. OK, sure, it might not be this year, it could be next year, it could be later, but it’s on the way so get with the show. What we do with this new uber-connected reality where you can ask your wristwatch where the local vinyl exchange is and be told it got shut down by lazy labels in the digital dawn? Where you can ask your watch for coffee and it’ll tell you to go there for coffee. Where you can hit Grinder if you’re gay/lesbian or OK Cupid if you’re straight (or both if you’re both and frankly if you can handle that much time management challenge, hats off to you) and make an immediate date? This augmented reality, all carried on your wrists, well until old Woz’ future prediction gets it right and we all have AAPL-branded cyborgs in our ear….
Returning briefly to reality, here’s a pic of the Facetime camera on iPod nano. By which we’ve basically established a low power processor to handle the connectivity and call, even if only over Wi-Fi, so suddenly what’s up top doesn’t feel quite so crazy anymore, maybe…. Over to you, I take comments here, too.
[OK, sure, it might not be this year, it could be next year, it could be later, but it’s on the way some day so get with the show.]
Fact or fake, doesn’t matter. You know something like this will happen. After all, I did say it was science fiction…
