SyrupCast 35: Apple Watch Price Pout

This week, wearables expert, Tom Emrich, joins Daniel, Jane and Douglas to talk about, what else, the Apple Watch.

Who is it for? And why is everyone hung up on the Apple Watch Edition, which starts at $13,000 CDN. Tom says it’s mostly a marketing tool, a way for Apple to penetrate the lucrative marketing mechanism of the high-end Swiss watch market. And when it’s all said and done, Apple’s presence in the market will actually boost smartwatch sales overall, as they did with smartphones and tablets.

Also talked about is the CRTC’s decision to regulate on-demand streaming services like Shomi and CraveTV. What are the consequences of the CRTC’s decision? Will everyday Debbie be subscribing to CraveTV in the near future on a TekSavvy internet connection? Listen and find out!
