The Apple Rundown: The Apple Watch Watchers Edition


A warning to you gentle reader, this post contains nothing but Apple Watch links. If you are tired, bored or just plain don't want to hear any more about the thing... you may want to skip this one. Some people are already on "burn out" at this early stage of the product's life cycle. After collecting more than 100 links on this accessory, I can honestly say, I'm a bit on overload about the subject myself. Therefore, the next edition will contain no Apple Watch news. Well, unless the devices turn peoples arms blue or allow them to become superheroes or something. Fat chance I could ignore stories like those. So, barring supernatural origin stories of the comic book variety, this post will have to do for those wanting news about Apple Watches. Oh, and listen to BBQ 14 because we talk about it in that show as well. Happy reading!
