Lefties Are Not Happy About The Apple Watch

Lefties Are Not Happy About The Apple Watch (h/t Buzzfeed).

This was the first thought I had when I saw the thing about using the crown to control it. (Silly me thought a “crown” was more of a bezel that went all the way around the watch. Like a diver’s watch or something.)

Now I’m thinking — that just won’t work! I’m left-handed, and I wear my watch on my right hand. If I ever have to use a “crown” I have to first take the watch off and hold it in order to change the date or wind it whatever.

Bezel would have been cooler.

WSJ: “Apple Seeks to Create Pandora Rival”

Apple Inc. is in talks to license music for a custom-radio service similar to the popular one operated by Pandora Media Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, in what would be a bid by the hardware maker to expand its dominance in online music.

 

This could make sense… there’s nothing particularly unique about Pandora (not that I don’t appreciate it) and Apple might offer something that works with people’s data plans, encourages more music sales and can jump from Mac to iOS to Apple TV and elsewhere. It’s a move that would fit their strategy and offer a potential competitive edge over Android.
