  1. You take premature statistics for one year and extrapolate that through 2015. LMAO. Mark my word.. “smartwatches” will come no where close to the numbers you are projecting.

    “$12.12 billion by 2015” won’t happen. “Smartwatches” are a fad, and fads never last. “Augmentation Glasses” are a fad, and Google Glass is already experiencing this. Good luck 😉
