Apple Watch Release 04/24, prices start $349

From the beginning of time, human kind has made many strides from rock and wood instruments, fire and the revolution of the wheel. How great was the sundial. The sundial is the oldest know device for measuring time If you were fortunate enough around 1500 BC, you would have been on the cutting edge if you had a sun dial. However the Egyptians developed a more precise sundial around 800 BC.

Jumping ahead a few thousand years and we now have another high tech revelation in the way of the Apple Watch. By no means can we compare practical use of the early sundial to the ultra modern ability of the Apple Watch.

I still think back to the early days of Apple of the 70’s to the futuristic computers and devices we have available to us right now.

Currently Apple is on its way to be the first Trillion Dollar Company. The has been accomplished by Apples ability to look at the future and bring those possibilities to us today and for the most part a price that represents the value of the product.

Some say the Apple Watch dosen’t over any thing remarkable. I believe the market place will be the final judge.
