+10 Tina - clive boulton

Endorsements - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I see a few of us are a little loopy from being out on a school night, las tnight - Tina Chase Gillmor
I wont be buying an iphone6 but apple really needs to choose a direction on mobile payments since they are really in the industry spotlight and I think that NFC registers will become ubiquitous if apple finally throws its weight behind this communication standard. - Chris Hale
Chris... Apple is getting into payments full blast - Tina Chase Gillmor
payment industry really needs some technological disruption. It is an industry that is overdue - Chris Hale

these are some ADORABLE WEARABLES! - Frank Paynter
Forget the iWatch. On September 9th, Apple may show us more than one "embodiment" of their "wearable" mobile devices. Some of them coupling with various styles of electronic wearable accessories like a wristband. With more devices and accessories to couple with (desk, travel, home and car accessories, and sports equipment) to come. - Alex de Soto

I seriously believe these smartwatches biggest and most valuable use case will be for home automation purposes - Chris Hale
not sure about that clive- - Kevin Marks
John, can the phone use both cellular and wireless signal? - christina sponselli
Apple HomeKit is all Siri driven... - Ian Waring
I'm with John. Leave the phone behind. Chip miniaturization and efficiency will make it possible. - Alex de Soto
I envision a world here pretty soon where your watch can be used for permiter access like unlocking your lockitron or august door locks, and maybe as you walk from room to room, the home knows where you go and turns on lights, etc - Chris Hale
Continuity feature. - Alex de Soto
The piconet will have a variety of instruments. I agree that the internet of household things will be driven by an onbody instrument. - Arnie Klaus
last think I want is my watch to be another thing to ring for calls - Kevin Marks
Wait. My phone IS still a telephone? ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
+10 Kevin - Tom Guarriello
Ifttt - Ian Waring
Would not want another "telephone" but a device able to connect to the network. - Alex de Soto
I totally agree with @kevinMarks on notifications being useful use case for watches. I am totally onboard with smart watches because I would rather drain a watches battery than deal with the serious battery drain from using my phone all the time - Chris Hale
I'm guessing the big box at the announcement location is a futurama house. - Arnie Klaus
Pretty sure that the iWatch will be marketed around monitoring your Health Wellbeing - Moe Glitz from iPhone
i wish I could post a photo to this chat - Tina Chase Gillmor
Here is how the enterprise can use smart watches. It might collude with health insurance companies to offer you a discount on insurance based on how much fitness you do based on monitoring the sensors on a smart watch - Chris Hale
I agree with @keith - Chris Hale
I think you are all underestimating the fashion statement that the Iwatch will be - Tony Stanislawski
Agree, Tony - Tom Guarriello
Apple's wearable(s) must be different from all of those watches or they will fail. - Alex de Soto
Rather than piddy little screen and battery, give me a full wrist strap like Fuelband wearable like a watch 24/7 - clive boulton
Health health health - Ian Waring
quality - Tina Chase Gillmor
The Rolex of wearables - Tom Guarriello
I agree with @scoble - Chris Hale
Exactly Robert! - Tony Stanislawski
Glucose level monitor using infra red on skin - non invasive - Ian Waring
watches will only succeed if they are fashionable - Chris Hale
@scoble is right; people will use wearable technology to make a statement about who they are - Josh Bradshaw
Rolex $3000 up - clive boulton
Robert is correct. But it will be more than one thing. - Alex de Soto
does that work, ian? - Kevin Marks
The phone is 2007 - Tom Guarriello
I still wear a real watch! Can't wait to replace it. - Tony Stanislawski
Phones are also getting bigger and bigger. - Alex de Soto
I think Scoble stumbled onto an interesting idea. Using a watch to exchange information like phone numbers or contact info is a brilliant use case for watches. - Chris Hale
Poor Scott! - Tony Stanislawski
Stumbled, Chris?? Lol - Tom Guarriello
chris that's been the "beam contact" idea for years, never quite works - Kevin Marks
back in my day we used to get digits by the old fashioned pen and napkins - Chris Hale
wasn't that angstro? - Kevin Marks
I think all the doubters are seriously underestimating what Apple can do! We don't know we want one yet. 2 years from now everyone will have one! - Tony Stanislawski
Casio G Shock: one to beat. - clive boulton
Personalized iBeacons? - Alex de Soto
the problem with sending notifications to your watch about the person you are talking to is that they see them first if your wrist is facing them - Kevin Marks
I know its the "beam contact" concept but nobody has really made a simple ubiquitous/popular way to easily wirelessly transmit information. I think if apple does NFC on there phones and possibly on the watch or beacons on a watch , i think its huge for that notion of contact less close quarters information transmission - Chris Hale
I think that the big white building going up next to the Flint Center is all about fashion. - Alex de Soto
Don't know if it works. In the labs yes, but accuracy in the field is much more key - Ian Waring
Flint Center is an interesting choice - they used that for the Mac and iMac launches - Kevin Marks

@Kevin, which watch are you sporting right now? The samsung? - Chris Hale
Siri will be key on the iWatch. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
the LG - Kevin Marks
I think the challenge will be to get men to wear the fashion wireless earing type earbuds. - Arnie Klaus
How many young people use email outside of school? They will not care about getting email on their "watch." - Alex de Soto
I don't think siri will be good on a watch. I think the hard part of UI and functionality on a watch is knowing/teaching a user what they can/can't do with the watch - Chris Hale
ok google is good on the watch - Kevin Marks
wait. That's Steve's job to call bullshit - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ok Google has started to give answers in the same accent as read to it - Ian Waring
