I was considering buying the Apple Watch until I found out that you have to have your phone in your pocket for it to operate most of the applications. Since I already pretty much have the phone in my hand all day, it seemed pointless to have something in my hand that was also on my wrist. Also, until I can video-call someone Dick Tracy style, there’s no point in owning a watch that also takes phone calls.
Anyway, since it’s Friday, I’ll let Newt Gingrich explain the Apple Watch’s drawbacks instead of boring you with more of my unnecessary observations – yes, that Newt Gingrich. Here’s his first tech review for Mashable.com.
Verdict: not cooler than a moonbase.
