CORRECTION: Rush said “I don’t need to wear something that tells me I’m not in shape” not “I don’t need to wear something that tells me I’m not a chick.”
RUSH: No, no, I’m not interested in one. I don’t need to wear something that tells me I’m not in shape. Snerdley just asked me if I was excited about the new Apple iWatch or iTime or whatever they’re gonna introduce. Well, see, here’s what happened. I just read about it. As you know, I’m big Apple aficionado, and I read everything I get my hands on about it, and this iWatch is one of the most eagerly anticipated new products from Apple.
There are a lot of companies that have “wearables,” smart wearables, but none of ’em have really taken off. Everybody in the tech world has just been going bonkers over waiting for what’s being called the iWatch. There have been so many rumors about problems manufacturing it: “Delays in the supply chain; Apple doesn’t have enough Sapphire for the cover.
“The watch is so precise, it’s so small, they haven’t been able to solve the battery-life problem.” I mean, everything under the sun has been presented as a rumor to explain why the watch is not gonna happen until next year. They may announce it this year, but it’s not gonna be ready. I mean, the supply chain, there’s not even any leaks of the materials, so all the experts say there isn’t gonna be one.
