Re: Nothing smart about this watch...or the iPhone
Wow! Why are you even reading an article about technology? You clearly hate it. "Yes, the 'smart' phones not being smart is not unique to the iPhone, they all are nothing else than dumb terminals that are mobile with a pretty screen." I'm not sure if you've been living under a rock for the past 6 years, but this is what we call smart phones. So any other definition for what a smart phone should be in your imagination does not actually apply to the real world, or real world definitions. The smart phone came up with solutions to problems that didn't exist. That's what progress is, you come up with a new technology, people find uses for it, and now it's an integral part of their lives. The smart watches are good for monitoring health levels, so as the technology progresses, it can become invaluable to people that are trying to live healthy lives. This is just a first step for smartwatches as this article points out, improvements have to be made. But nonetheless, you still have to learn how to walk before you can run. The first tv sets were not 3D 4K sets, they weren't even colored. Just give the technology some time and don't be so quick to judge something as unnecesary.
