But I do think there are real problems a wearable device can solve, and problems an Apple wearable is perhaps best positioned to solve.

Comcast reported to be considering their own mobile service provider business

Its Wifi network is growing with installations of public access points — over a million across various markets — in large cities and special residential routers that Comcast provides with a publicly-available signal in over eight million homes. But it naturally wouldn't be able to cover the entire country comprehensively — that's where other carriers come in.
