Did I save the best for last at number 25? I don’t know.
But like a lot of us, I am certainly looking forward to receiving my apple watch! According to Forbes, industry projections range from ten million to sixty million units sold this year. The starting price has been rumored at $349. And as much as I like my Fit Bit, I guess I will have to consolidate and wear only my apple watch.
Back in 1985 when I was an executive at Paramount, I worked on the development of Dick Tracy with the talented writing team of Jack Epps, Jr. and Jim Cash. I had a real gadget-lust for Tracy’s 2 way radio watch. While Disney, not Paramount ended up making the script, it is hard to wrap my mind around the fact that in 2015, we will finally be getting our Dick Tracy watches via apple delivery.
Happy New Year everyone!
