About 10-years ago Bill Gates was at the famous Comdex show in Las Vegas, and he had with him a voice-activated, speech recognition wristwatch which was able to surf the Internet and send out e-mails. This nifty little invention was quite cold back in 2000, but unfortunately, it really wasn’t ready yet. Today with the iPhone Four we see that we can surf the Internet, send e-mails, and use a touch screen.
Although it was a little bit bigger than the wristwatch device back in 2000, it appears that all this technology is now available. And, we know customers love it, they purchased nearly 2 million iPhone IV’s the first week it was introduced, yep, people lined up to buy them.
Recently, Sir Ken Robinson made a funny statement at the annual Ted Conference, he said his daughter a 20-year old doesn’t wear a watch, and when her father asked why, she said; “Come on it is a single functioning device, how lame is that?” It is incredible that in just over a decade and a half, the wristwatch is now out – very few people of the millennial generation have wrist watches.
Not long ago, I was on Craigslist, and I found a Blue Oyster high-end wristwatch, for only $4000; yes it was a real one, not a fake Chinese knock-off version, although some people say you can hardly tell the difference anymore. The point I’m making is that the price should have been $10,000 even in a recession, but there are fewer buyers today because people don’t wear wrist watches anymore, and it is not a necessity to advertise that you have arrived by wearing one.
After all, all the cool people now have the latest version of the smartphone. Did the technology shift, was Bill Gates ahead of his time, maybe did he misinterpreted the future? I would submit to you that he didn’t really miss it and that although the technology has moved to smartphone computing, that as time goes on people will want something such as the wristwatch, that can do all the same functions, they’re probably going to want to have a holographic display on the device.
And I would submit to you that within seven or eight years this will all be possible as well. And then people will be saying about today’s smartphone, “look how big and cumbersome it is, it only has 225,000 apps – how lame is that?” The reality is that technology changes that Moore’s law is real, and as the future unfolds it may be even more impressive than you can imagine. Please consider all this. so how can you put aside a watch like ダ ニ エ ル ウ ェ リ ン ト ン の サ イ ズ, this is very fashionable among women. of course a luxurious and charming design is very suitable as ダ ニ エ ル ウ ェ リ ン ト ン レ デ ィ ー ス ー ー ィ ト ト. …
