As any Apple fan I have a lot of Apple news sites in my RSS feeds 1. There is one consistant piece of news that is happening on all of the sites – what will Apple tell us about the AppleWatch at their event on Monday afternoon2. However, just like with the any kind of pregame show, I’m completely tired of all the analysis.
I understand why the sites write all of these news articles or opinion pieces. Writing about the AppleWatch will increase their hits which means more ad revenue for them3. I have no problem with that, they need to make money and earn a living. I just wish all of the prognostication would stop. We’ll know what there will or won’t be when Apple announces it on Monday.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m happy to hear from the company what the company announces when they announce the product. It’s the same with sports. I don’t really care about all of the pregame analysis and which team is going to do what during the game. I just want the game to be played.
I’m more interested in the post-game analysis, because there are things that can be discussed. What Apple did right, what did they do wrong, disappointments, and surprises. It’s interesting to hear different people’s opinions on those kind of topics.
I’m interested to see what the AppleWatch will offer and how much the non-base versions will cost4. Not that I will be buying one anytime soon for reasons discussed earlier. I like technology and I am always interested in what we will be able to do with it to make our lives better. It’s all of the chatter beforehand that drives me insane.
- Yes, I still use RSS. Hopefully I’ll write about that in another post. ↩
- Here on the East Coast it will start at 1:00pm as always. ↩
- This is also the case for the anti-Apple bloggers who are predicting the AppleWatch will be a complete failure. ↩
- Remember the AppleWatch Sport, their base version, will start at $349. ↩
