Defining what it is… officially… www.apple.com/watch

Digibody’s first-day, first-hours point of view: Live Tweeted. We’re tagging the Watch not a watch but a Companion and iConnection device.

@DigiBod It’s a ‘companion device‘ MT “@om: “Don’t call Apple Watch a smart watch” @kevinctofel http://gigaom.com/2014/09/10/dont-call-the-apple-watch-a-smartwatch-even-though-it-has-the-same-challenges-as-them/ … #companiondevice #wristlink

Beyond D/Body’s tweets/posts/comments Day One, our overall feeling is that we’re looking at the beginnings of a companion that is using ‘wrist space’… the Apple Watch is a #nextgen connection to the Internet… let’s affectionately call ‘it’ #iConnect 

○ ○ ○ ○

Second-day thought: It’s a hub, a portal, it needs another device to really do what it’s meant to do to be a ‘companion’ – an interactive and intelligent (iConnect) link in a system most effectively used now with iPhone 6 and iOS 8 and, as time goes by, the apps will begin to hit the market in 2015. It’s just the beginning of #iConnection.

To what extent there’s take-up in the market, given price, functionality, improvements, is a TBD

Third-day thoughts: The next great gold rush, Wired’s on it

It’s the apps, the apps, and already the Watch is running with partners

Week after thoughts

This thought from R/GA at FutureVision — recalling our founder’s relationship with R/GA back when it first started up and we were doing doing servo-drives and title sequences. Robert’s opening credits for Superman in 1978 remain classic (btw, did you know Mario Puzo of Godfather wrote Superman thinking of Marlon Brando for Superman’s father?) Robert Greenberg’s work with R/GA continues and is amazing.

DigiBody’s founder, Steven Schmidt, met and had an opportunity to work with Robert and later in his career as president of Aspen Interactive, the digital arm of the largest privately held marketing services company, Steve continued as an admirer of R/GA.

The creative team at R/GA has always been one of the best and is always worth keeping up with… Bookmark ’em and sign-up to receive their FutureVision newsletter. Subscribe. Robert’s take on a connected world captures our view of a fast-developing connected world.)

A touch of R/GA about Apple’s Sept. 9th announcement, one week later, as we longingly look at our white iPod next to our keyboard.

RIP original iPod: With so much hype around the new iPhones, Apple Pay, and Apple Watch, you may have missed that Apple discontinued the original iPod this week. First introduced in 2001, the iPod introduced an entirely new way to listen to music, giving people the ability to “fit [their] whole music library in [their] pocket.”

Apple isn’t done reinventing how we listen to music; the surprise release of U2’s first album in five years could be the start of Apple as a music “label.”

And Watch Reviews?

The reviews are mixed, to be expected, as #AppleWatch is not available. The specifics, apps and answers to questions are limited.

In a constellation of hundreds of quick and short news pieces and reviews (see below for a rep sample) comes one that stands out, from ‘the Valley’, and it’s “underwhelming”…

The Silicon Valley paper of record, Mercury News, takes a hard look at the Watch.

A pick of the pack of reviews from Steven Levy from the very cool Medium site, “Apple Gets Intimate

There was plenty to process at the Flint Center in Cupertino, California, today. The event was Apple’s stab at making history again for the first time, so to speak, an ambition it signaled from the get-go with the selection of the location—the site of the original 1984 Macintosh launch and then the 1998 iMac announcement that marked Steve Jobs’s revitalization of the company. Job’s successor Tim Cook flatly proclaimed the day as the next chapter in the company’s epic story.
