What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Differently about Smartwatch?

What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch? I'm a Windows fan, but I have a certain gratitude to Apple. Well, they reinvented PC with GUI and mouse. And that gave Bill Gates a workable idea about our beloved Windows.
   After a "sabbatical career" in Next, Inc., Jobs returned to Apple with his long known "different thinking."
   Some ideas that others failed to grasp includes,
The clever design of doughnut-shaped touch pad on iPod—when everybody else in the business can only think of a square-shaped touch pad.
   and of course,
The idea that tablets—and later smartphones—are different kind of "animal" so they will need a new kind of UI and even a new kind of OS. This gave birth to "finger-touch-navigation" and a decision to make a different OS for these gadgets rather than extending MacOS to these devices.
   The last ideas were far-sighted since during that time, Bill Gates' Microsoft were busy—and failingly—making Windows XP runs on tablets with stylus pen (not ordinary finger). And since XP is basically a desktop OS, it just doesn't work intuitively on mobile devices like tablets even more smartphones.
   Jobs seems to instinctly realized that desktops are creation device but mobile devices—mostly without full-sized keyboard and mouse—are consumption devices. People create contents on desktop computers but will mostly consume contents on tablets and smartphones.
   We all just can't see these at the time, but Jobs did.
   So, what would Jobs see in smartwatch if he was still alive today? This is an intriguing curiosity. And maybe can be a training to feel what it's like to think like Steve Jobs... :)

   Ok, if I were Steve Jobs, maybe I would think up of these features for a smartwatch. I will use Microsoft Band just as an illustration cause it's the coolest implementation of smartwatch to date—in my opinion, of course.
   First, maybe the basic and obvious that a smartwatch can do...
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   Yes, everybody in the business had already thought about this. A smartwatch is the best gadget you can use in a 2 factor authentication. A companion for every devices you own, from laptop to smartphone.
   Next we move up the ladder of Steve-Jobs-like creativity but not too far up...
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   Yeah, you said. Figured that one already.... Smartwatch as remote control replacement. And it's just not for your TV but also your stereo, air conditioning...,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch? Well, not that too old AC of course. Basically, all of your home appliances. Yeah, I've thought of that one too, you said.
   I think even Steve would think that all of these are novices. But I think we all agree that these are what we'd love to have in our smartwatch, right?
   Wrong? Hmm...I'm still not Steve-Jobs-enough then...

   Ok, all home appliances will eventually become digital and part of the IoT/Internet of Things ecosystem. So a smartwatch should be able to do simple things in our life like, switching on and off and control the brightness of our digital light bulbs,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   Still not Steve-Jobs-enough? Ok, how about smartwatch as our all-purpose digital key? Yeah, I mean it would be like that "2 factor auth" thing, except now it's for our everday things. Like we can open our safes with it,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch? or our doors,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch? even to start our cars,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch? and Mom can now monitor our baby bro/sista from her smartwatch,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?    Still not Steve-Jobs-enough? Ok, we've covered home appliances, digital keys...
   Well, if we think about it, Jobs was creating iPod to replace the clunky Walkman. Maybe, just maybe, he might want to create a smartwatch that can replace...
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
Yes, so we can finally control our games with smartwatch movements. A whole new navigation UI would have to be invented here.
   Or maybe even control "classic games" like one of these toys,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   But maybe the biggest coup Steve Jobs would've done is to replace these decades, "middle-ages" controls,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
Yes, one of the original innovations he brought to the business, the mouse. Even replacing stylus maybe by adding some small finger-stylus gadget "add-on" for smartwatch,
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   Not even close to Steve Jobs, huh?

   Hell yeah it's hard to become someone else you don't! :) But maybe we can get to a fraction, some 1-5% of Steve Jobs if we really believe we can think different.
   And one more thing... (he-he...)
   I think Steve Jobs would implement digital wallet into smartwatch but only for small change transactions, like parking, buying ice cream, burgers, even giving alms to the homeless (note: I hope Jobs could set aside for a while that usual Apple "high-margin" thinking and think up something to give homeless some way to get a government-subsidized-smartwatch...),
What Would Steve Jobs Think Up Different about Smartwatch?
   Well, all-in-all, I miss that creative brain of Steve Jobs. And I think Bill Gates misses that too... Thanks Steve, for all of your genius "differences", and I hope we can learn more to think different...even more different than you did.[]
