Rumors about Apple working on an iWatch have surfaced a couple months ago and immediately triggered reports of competitors working on smart watches as well. Yesterday a report surfaced that Apple has filed an iWatch trademark in Japan. The iWatch rumors might have hit a turning point with that filing as now the Apple iWatch is more real than ever, but is it going to be a revolutionary product?
There are already several smart watches out there that communicate with your smartphone. There are though no mass market product yet. They are worn on wrists of some geeks. There are issues with battery life and the tiny screen is making them difficult to use. Has Apple invented something that goes beyond what smart watches are like today with the iWatch? I do hope so, else Apple will have the first product failure on their hands since years.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
