Whenever Apple comes out with a new gadget, it’s a safe bet that there’s already going to be a line of people around the block just itching to be among the first to try it. Apple could make a toaster (I’m actually not being derogatory toward Cylons, for a change) and pretty much guarantee that the first run would sell out on opening day, with plenty of pre-orders ensuring a fresh supply “coming soon.” Hey, people love Apple. And toast. I’m not wrong! But unless you’re an aficionado of all things Apple and your purchase is a sure thing, it’s quite possible that you’re weighing the pros and cons of the just recently (though long rumored) Apple Watch for your own purposes.

Want to know a secret, though? Most people in the mainstream really don’t care which one they use, as long as it works for their purposes. They may lean toward one because it’s what they happened to pick up first and it’s what they know — it’s what they’ve become comfortable with.

If I were King of the Forest, spiders and their infernal webs would be evicted to the next kingdom! Actually, that would still be a little too close for my liking, but that’s something for the next king over to worry about. Welcome to Pirillo Vlog 865!
In remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001, I feature Pirillo Vlog 335 in this space — when Diana and I visited the memorial at Ground Zero in New York City last year.
