Random Apple Watch thoughts of Casey Liss

Developer/podcaster Casey Liss has his own set of thoughts about trying on and ordering an Apple Watch. He is remarkably ambivalent:

Sitting here now, I’m on the edge of canceling my preorder. The only thing that’s stopping me is Apple’s 14-day return policy – why not just keep it and try it for a week or two? Furthermore, one could argue I have an obligation to try it for the show, if only for a little while.

A lot of us who write or talk about Apple are often asked, “But are you buying it?” The answer is almost always yes, but our priorities are not those of a regular consumer. I ordered an Apple Watch because I write about Apple technology. I never even considered not buying one. Would I buy one if I weren’t writing about this stuff? I have no idea.
