I was reading about Apple’s next great thing: the iWatch. It is computer one wears around the wrist. It is an example of wearable computers that includes Amazon’s eye glasses and Nike’s Fuelband. In some manner the iWatch will sense where you are in the world and your personal environment and it will supply you with the information that you need, probably from data stored in the Cloud. That sounds sort of vague as to how one orders up this information with no keyboard. The market is said to grow to 485 million units sold per year and Apple will have most of those sales.

I actually read Churchill’s History of WWII, all six volumes. It was an impressive work and Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. I am a great admirer of Churchill.

To which she replied, ‘And you, sir, are drunk!” To this Churchill replied, “Yes I am, Mum, but tomorrow I shall be sober, but you shall still be ugly.”
