Re: Why wearable?
I do like your statement, sir - most of the vendors just mention that they have the pressure from competitor but they do not have a clear understanding of real business case. I am not sure will Apple make a difference here but at least Apple fans will put in a plug for the iWatch.:-)

Why wearable?
I get the sense that if you were to ask the tech vendors in the wearable space why they're there, they'd point to a competitor rather than a real business plan.
