What is that smell? Lilac?

iPants

Lilac, or any pastel coloured battery powered apple pattern fitted shirt with a rechargeable iWatch battery built in.

Perhaps a pair of iPants (underwear to our US brethren) with a functional recharge chair, eliminating the need of a plug in charger.

The possibilities are endless.

Re: iPants

With some people I know, a gas-powered generator in their pants would be far more efficient.

iSuit?

The iSuit will of course be turned on and off by kicking yourself in the groin ...

Re: iSuit?

I believe apple's legal team already own the rights to the iSuit, and it already more-or-less involves kicking one's self in the groin. Expect to hear from them soon.

Buttons

At least we now know that the new iWatch will have buttons. Plenty of buttons.

Emperor's new clothes ?

A designer branded iPhone, anyone ? For a further triumph of form over function.

Anyway, been there, done that with LG (or was it Samsung ?) silly designer-name phones and Acer's Ferrari branded laptops.

At least the apparently irrelevant brand-link on JCB and Caterpillar branded phones suggests (and perhaps delivers) ruggedisation.

Perfect match

Who better to advise to advise Apple on how to further exploit underpaid and underage workers than someone from the fashion industry?

Wouldn't it be funny if the iwatch was a smokescreen and they bring out something truly revolutionary, like a wearable iMac powered by movement. That would be awesome! So it'll probably be an iwatch - boring...

I predicted the tablet would be a success, this will fail (unless its a complete ipad type unit that will transmit wirelessly to a bigger screen / tv output where available).

Re: "Everything that has a beginning, has an end..."

Unfortunately our Betters are of the opinion that we should be all be tethered to clouds.

Which is a pity, as I would love to see what Jony Ive and Woz would do to create an Apple IV.

YSL is a "chav" brand is it not?

I'm saying nothing about the market for Apple users.

Obviously a full rename to 'The Perfumed Garden' is on order.
