57: The Soothsayer

April 26, 2015 at 3:30PM • 60 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Abdel Ibrahim of The Tech Block shares his obsessive fascination with the smartwatch as a product category, why he enjoys looking at new products based on where they may take us in the future, and how he's frustrated that not all aspects of life have shifted towards a technological solution.

In addition, we discuss smartwatches as fashion over function, how fragmented ecosystems hinder technological progress, vocal interaction versus physical input methods, the difference between "being cool" and "doing cool stuff", and how human behaviors change drastically slower than technology.

It concludes with Abdel tackling step eleven by agreeing to survey more people outside of an Apple Store about their desire to buy an Apple Watch.
