Apple Watch Is A Needful Thing

Needful Things is the name of a book by Stephen King (who I happen to think is America’s most underrated author, and best storyteller, but that is another matter).  I’ve co-opted his title to mean those things that seem absurdly unnecessary (but desirable), and which worm themselves into your life, so much so that you know already that if it breaks you will run out and buy another.  My own history of needful things includes

  • Wireless phones
  • DVRs
  • iPhones, 3,4,5,6

And now the Apple Watch.  I loved my Pebble, but honey the affair is over, sorry to see you go, but there  is a new love in my life.
