The iGlasses may be iGone.
I’m betting that this is more of a “shelving it for later” than “dead and buried for good.”
But think back to the development of cellphones. Apple didn’t jump in until mobile phones had been a common item in our pockets and purses, until the tech was ready for something transformational. You can say the same about the Macintosh and the iMac, too.
Yes, Apple is a leader in innovation. But I’d also argue its a leader in refining tech as well. And I bet it’ll be ready to put out a set of smart glasses when the tech is ready for them.
The time isn’t right yet.
