I am even more convinced today that we live in a cocoon in the United States, self-insulated from developments and--surprisingly--technology innovations in other parts of the world.
How else can we explain the hoopla about the "smart watch" Apple Inc. is reportedly developing to "bring technology closer to the consumer in the form of a wearable wristwatch computing device" as EBN contributor Nicole Lewis puts it in a recent blog?
Here's news for the electronics industry and Apple iWatchers: Similar devices already exist and have been around for some time.
It is simple, it is made by APPLE, the "iEverything" company! It doesn't matter whether the cocoon insulates Americans or not, they have always been oblivious to the outside world but that is gradually changing these days!
I commented elsewhere that US ranks near the bottom in terms of broadband speed, about 4th from bottom to be precise!
