AppAdvice.com to launch Apple Watch website on February 16
Are you excited about the launch of the Apple Watch? OK, I’ll admit it, I’m not. I hate the idea of having to wear a watch again.
But tech sites are positively breathless about the prospect of a brand new Apple product.
In the old days, say a decade or more ago, the first thing a publisher would do is immediately launch a new tech magazine around the new product. Macworld certainly got its start that way, and had quite a run before its eventual exit from print. Some trends, like nanotechnology, were simply too specialized to keep a launch like Small Times magazine alive for long (the URL for that title now leads to a site for the magazine Solid State Technology.
“Now, with Apple Watch, we feel a little bit of history repeating, a creeping sense of industrial déjà vu. So even though Cupertino’s newest piece of kit is being billed as the ultimate iOS convergence device, it’s clear that it’s a whole lot more. It’s clear that we need to give Apple Watch our undivided attention with a dedicated destination all its own.”
The new site will officially launch on Monday, February 16. But, of course, reading the content on your new Apple Watch may prove difficult, but I am confident that some digital publishing platform will begin promoting their PDF solution for the Apple Watch, right? Can’t wait.
