Just two days ago Re/code reporter John Paczkowski clearly stated that "Apple now plans to unveil a new wearable alongside the two next-generation iPhones we told you the company will debut on September 9th." Now, in a total turn around, Paczkowski writes, "Look Daddy! Santa Gave Me an iWatch Rain Check." He went on to say "So when does Apple plan to ship its eagerly anticipated wearable? That's not clear …" ah forget about it John, you're killing the joke already.
Yes, most cryptozoologists eventually lose their way when chasing elusive creatures like the Abominable Snowman or the Loch Ness monster. I guess we can now add Apple's iWatch to that list. Just ignore the next sighting, because it's likely to be quickly contradicted within a week.
I'm beginning to think it's an Apple myth wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. We're never going to figure it out until it arrives, if it ever arrives. At the end of the day, leading up to Apple's annual circus (their keynote event) there's always a carnival air about it. It's when rumors run amok and predictors go mad.
At some point in time someone is asked to play the circus clown and this year John was good enough to play along. You're a good sport John and I got a good laugh out of it. Cheers.
For the humor handicapped: it's a humor piece, relax, take a deep breath and have yourself a great long Labor Day weekend.
