Woz says wearables – even Apple Watch – aren't 'compelling'

I really appreciated that Wozniak clearly stated that requiring a network connection makes things less useful.

At this point in time we are apparently trying to tie ourselves to the Internet for everything we do, and that means that anytime the Internet is not available, we cannot do anything.

In the future, at some point, I am convinced that the Internet will be available everywhere and all the time, with ample bandwidth for all, but right now that is simply not the case. So, while it may be nice when it works, you still need a backup plan for when it doesn't.

I prefer to skip the hassle and go straight to what works all the time, every time.
