Vector is a news and analysis show focusing on the biggest stories, hottest trends, and most important issues in technology and popular culture. On this week's show we follow up on the Apple Watch and Apple Pay announcements. What we got right and wrong, and whether we'll be getting watches, which watches, and trusting mobile payments. Also, what fashion and commerce mean for Apple as a company, the fallout from free U2 albums, and stunned reactions to what happened at Macworld and IDG. With Dave Wiskus, Georgia Dow, Rene Ritchie, and guest Ryan Nielsen, formerly of OS X at Apple, now of Tumult and Hype.
