Samsung confirms it is 'investing heavily' in wearable computers to take on Google Glass and Apple's rumoured iWatch Samsung's bosses recently admitted the firm was developing a smartwatch and putting it on sale before Apple's iWatch would be key to its success. Last summer I read the rumors about the iWatch and all the revolutionary capabilities it would have. Then I went to the Verizon store in Missoula MT and verified that a watch-like device I had previously seen hanging on the rack there does (according to the print on the box) everything those rumors claimed the iWatch would do, and supposedly works with any Android phone - which would include those from Samsung.I haven't kept up to date on the rumors at all, though, so that comment may be sadly out of date.Also I didn't buy the watch-like device, so I can't confirm from experience that it would actually do what the iWatch rumors of the time claimed.
when the iPod came out there were plenty of mp3 players.Somehow Apple still managed to be marginally successful with music players.
