“Later today, when Apple unveils its long-awaited wearable, expect similar, self-assured proclamations of its doom,” Mark Rogowsky writes for Forbes.
“With four of the millennium’s biggest hit products, Apple’s new releases typically draw more predictions of doom than success,” Rogowsky writes. “There is an undercurrent of hate towards Apple that is a function of jealousy over the company’s success and its ‘arrogance’ both real and perceived. But what really frustrates Apple haters is that the company can most often do things [of which] other companies only dream.”
“Apple will show off more details about its HealthKit app tomorrow with the Mayo Clinic touting the capabilities of iPhones and iWatches for making people healthier. The company will show how its mobile payments solution is ready to go with major national retailers,” Rogowsky writes. “Samsung fans will point out that heart-rate monitoring is a “me-too” feature. Android aficionados will explain that paying with your phone has existed for several years thanks to Google Wallet. Neither group will mention that for all the usage of those features, they might as well not exist. And yet, if Apple mentions the competition at all, it will be to heap contempt on it. Again, the critics will be enraged.”

To paraphrase the immortal words of Frank ‘The Fixer’ Acavano: Fsck the ambulance, call a hearse.
