“I’m more than a little surprised at all the Apple Watch naysayers,” Steve Tobak writes for FOX Business. “What surprises me is that they never seem to get sick of being completely and consistently wrong. Time after time, they’re so wrong you can set your watch by it.”
“’m seeing story after story about all the things Apple Watch is not, does not have or will not do. It doesn’t solve a problem. It has no killer app. It won’t disrupt the watch industry,” Tobak writes. “When have we heard all that before?”
“Let me explain how this Apple Watch thing will go down.

It’s actually a brilliant strategy for getting Droid users to iSwitch to iPhone… Remember when Google launched Android Wear last year, sparking a frenzy of stories declaring Google the winner in smartwatches? Well Google and Samsung are about to learn once again that it makes no difference whether they get to market early or late, the best product always wins. By the end of 2015, Apple will once again have a category killer. And without Steve Jobs, may he rest in peace.”
