Apple Watch tops hottest holiday gift list

“The Apple Watch is still the hottest gift as Thanksgiving weekend gets underway, according to the IBM Watson Trend App,” Ed Carson reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “Meanwhile, the Microsoft Surface Pro and Star Wars Legos are cooling off.”

“The IBM Watson app analyzes millions of conversations across social networks, blogs, forums, comments, ratings, and reviews to determine which are likely to be top gifts this holiday season,” Carson reports. “The Apple Watch continues to get a perfect 100 score.”

  1. Happy Turkey Day Everyone!
    Just make sure not to eat too much. Seriously, last thanksgiving, I ate so much I could not get out of my comfy armchair for over 2 days! Good thing I grabbed my fully charged iPad before I sat my fat arse down or I would have been bored to death.

  2. Someone needs to tell the writer of the article that it wouldn’t be Watson saying “elementary”. It would be Sherlock Holmes. In fact the phrase was never used in Conan Doyle’s writings. It comes from an actor using the line “elementary my dear Watson”.

    1. Undoubtedly Basil Rathbone, one of my favorites, who could also exquisitely portray an evil villain. I still have a set of LPs of him reading Doyle’s novels, which I bought back in the early 70s from Columbia Record Club. A much simpler time, that was.

  3. Btw, the biggest reason I hate iOS is the mobile sites that you get stuck with.

    For example, this site. Your mobile page SUCKS. All mobile sites such. I mean come on, after 18 years of web page advances and NOW you want me to go back to a mobile site that makes web pages in 1999 look advanced.

  4. Totally agree I freakin hate websites that detect I’m on an iPad and give me a crappy mobile version of the site. There are far too many and it got me wanting to develop my own iOS web browser that would let you specify or “impersonate” which platform & browser websites think you are using. But I don’t have time for that 🙂

  5. Why not use the Puffin browser, or request this site in desktop mode? You do know how to do that in Safari, right? Just press and hold the refresh button and tap on ‘request desktop site’.
