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

I can't really disagree with the Woz..

But I'd also add that when if I'm going to wear a watch, I don't want to have to recharge it every day or every other day. If the battery life can be made to be at least a week, I'll bite.

I'd also say that the Apple ][ was a great success, and I have the utmost respect for the world's first mainstream color computer, but it would have been even more popular if it had included a live text/program editor like Commodore machines had from the beginning. I had a PET as my first computer and was amazed that early Fanbois had to retype lines of code instead of just navigating with cursor keys, replacing characters, and hitting "Return". I'm sure there will be some down votes for this, but this was such an intuitive feature that it may have helped pave the way for word processors to become more mainstream.
