Apple Watches are coming to Best Buy, and this is a good thing

Best Buy is the first big box chain to get the Apple Watch, and they won't be the last. Back in April I wrote about the experience of trying on an Apple Watch at the Apple Store. The Apple Watch was still a pretty rarified piece of hardware. Outside of Apple Stores and a few select high-end...

Apple Watch: A brilliant addition to my life

I knew I wanted an Apple Watch since I first saw it announced it last September. My son has told the story already, but when he called to let me know he was flying home from the event, I told him I was replaying the Apple Watch video again. Seeing it demonstrated on stage led me to believe it...

How the Apple Watch is pushing me to better health

I knew the Apple Watch would help me improve my health, but I didn't quite understand how much until recently. True confession: I've never jogged or run in my life. Well, at least not since physical education was a required class in my high school. I've spent the bulk of my 45 years on this...

Apple and the user experience business model

As you can imagine I have a lot of conversations about Apple. I have conversations about Apple with investors, competitors, developers, fans, venture capitalists, and more. These conversations are always revealing as to how much people understand, or think they understand, Apple. Inevitably...

Give thieves less to steal with the Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has some practical benefits, like making your iPhone harder to steal. Lately I've read a few news reports that cite a rise in the number of phone thefts in cities from people on bikes. Bike-bound thieves see an unwary pedestrian with their cell phone in front of them, texting or...
