  1. I’m just not sold on the watch/wearable. In 2007 all the pieces were in place to build a smartphone. In 2008 laptops were just getting to the point that made something like the air possible. Also, the need for the products was obvious, with the success of blackberry and netbooks. You could make a similar argument for the IPod in 2000.
    Tim made a great point about the health of Jobs and how they would likely make a health targeted wearable, but I have to agree with Ben that it just seems like a small niche that it would appeal to.
