October 5th is not far away, and it will be three years since Steve Jobs has passed away. No doubt that Mr. Jobs left a legacy with Apple with the iPod, iPhone, iPad, but a recent report from my Source reveals that Mr. Jobs had nothing to do with the Apple Watch.
Perhaps this is why there is no small “i” before Apple’s newest product, coming in 2015. The Apple Watch is apparently the product of Tim Cook’s Apple, and it was first being constructed shortly after the death of Jobs and before “wearables” were a buzzword.
My Source also reveals that a design chief of Apple named Jony Ive worked on a pinch-to-zoom touchscreen for the Apple Watch, but they could not perfect it on such a tiny screen. This developer group did manage to work on the Digital Crown, and, as I said in my last article, the dial on the Apple Watch could have been for a later generation of the iPod nano.
Well, I suppose that the sales of the Apple Watch will show whether or not Apple will thrive in the post Jobs era. I’ve heard that the iPhone 6 sales are doing well, but Apple will clearly need some new ideas if it wants to really make a killing in the tech market.
