MacVoices #15072: Jeff Carlson Gives A Crash Course on Apple Watch

Jeff Carlson  and Take Control Books have published Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course, an ebook to help you learn about Apple Watch now, and find out more once it becomes available. Jeff explains why they chose the new Crash Course format for this book, what is in this pre-Apple Watch release version, and what you can expect to find once he has an opportunity to work with his very own watch. The discussion goes deeper than that, though. Jeff and host Chuck Joiner  get into discussions of style vs. function, whether Apple Watch is a computer or not, and much more.
