  1. A Watch Guy’s Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos) — HODINKEE - Wristwatch News, Reviews, & Original Stories

    Interesting to read about the Apple Watch as a highish-end watch, ignoring the software. It compares well. A good point is raised though - traditional watches will last a long time, but how short will the life of an Apple Watch be? (via @GreatDismal)

    Weird how rich people seem to appreciate the finer things in life more than poor people, based on their purchasing behavior. Works out well!
