Apple “must” match Samsung’s ‘innovation’ when it ‘benchmarks’ for iWatch
Mike Randazzo, an analyst/writer claims: “Samsung is really challenging the wearables market to do more for the sake of consumers who need more help in a number of ways pertinent to their health and quality of life,” the analyst explains. “And so that becomes the challenge for Apple. If they fail to innovate or match Samsung’s effort to do more with wearables, they’ll fall dramatically short of expectations.”
This is such BS, of course: Samsung’s Gear range have both been abject failures. Poor design, poor usability, the few genuine sales have not transformed the world. Samsung rushed its limited wearable vision out through the door too fast, but only on strength of a year of claims of Apple’s work toward the same end.
