The Apple Watch Will Expose How Little Publishers Know About Their Readers
I've spent the past few weeks with a town crier attached to my wrist.
Or at least that's the best metaphor I can come up with for what wearing anApple Watch does for (to?) a news-interested consumer. It's tweaked the modern American condition - constantly fiddling with your smartphone - with a system of thumps and buzzes that grab your attention whenever an app believes it deserves it. It is simultaneously a marvel (a powerful little computer, attached to my arm!) and a bore, a transference of focus from a nice 4.7-inch screen to a tiny 42-millimeter one.
