Great article by John Gruber over at Daring Fireball regarding Apple Watch. He compares the “need” for the Watch to the initial “need” of the iPad. Really well done stuff and in my opinion needed. So many people are tripping over themselves wondering “What do I need a Apple Watch for?” The answer is simple, you don’t.
The right question is simply “Do you want one?”
It’s about desire, not necessity. Convenience, fun, and style are not needs. They’re wants. And people will gladly pay for what they want. The iPad faced similar misguided criticism. How many times did you hear or read someone say of the iPad, “Why would anyone who already has a phone and a laptop need an iPad?” That was the wrong question, because almost no one needed an iPad. The right question was “Why would someone who has a phone and laptop also want an iPad?”
