I am one of the least informed people on the planet regarding what is NEW and HIP and FABULOUS but even I know that the "release date" for the new Apple Watch is this Friday. The Apple store has a really fun window display that changes colors and draws you into the store where you can spend $17,000 on their newest product. Oh yes, the low end watch is "just" $350 but with such fanfare surrounding this next "big thing," do you really want the El Cheapo model? I guess the economy must be pretty strong these days (at least at the Apple store).
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
