The only reason

I hope the Watch is a success, other than owning Apple stock of course, is that it'll really piss off all the haters. I have no desire for a smartwatch, at least not based on any of the lame attempts there have been so far, or what I know of the capabilities of Apple's. Maybe someday someone will surprise me with some functionality that makes me want one.

I remember all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after the iPhone was launched. Too expensive, too big, etc. When Jobs said that he hoped that someday Apple might have 1% of the worldwide mobile market how people laughed and laughed. In 2014 Apple had over 10% of the mobile market (not smartphone, overall mobile market)
