It took me almost two weeks to review the Apple Watch. It took Jim Dalrymple almost two months.

The Apple Watch started to ship back in April. That ended almost five months of anticipation. For one long-time Apple reviewer, however, it also started a transformation. Jim Dalrymple, writing for The Loop:

I have been reporting on Apple for more than 20 years now, and in all that time no product has had such an impact on my life as this little piece of hardware and software. I don't say that for dramatic effect, it has had a profound effect on the way I live. As you will read later, this is the most personal review I have ever written.

The beginning is classic Jim. The rest is so very much more.
