Apple watch was a solution looking for a problem that doesn't exist.

Not really. The "problem" is that smartphones are big, and getting bigger. It's much easier to have a thing on your wrist to get/send text or phone calls. Think of smartwatches as just an interface to your smartphone, which can stay in your purse or pocket 90% of the time. Just because you are a minimalist and don't have the imagination to see potentials, doesn't mean that everyone is, and that just because you don't see something as a problem doesn't mean it's not a problem for all people. Also, not every product needs to be a solution to a "problem". I don't believe for a second that every single thing you own is utilitarian and nothing more.

I would. Anything to get one more career politician out of the loop the better. It's just cronyism all the way up. We also need term limits, campaign finance reform, special interest reform, all sorts of reform. This country has turned into a pile of shit politically. I was really hoping Sanders would get the nomination because he was the only one who seems to understand the amount of broken-ness in Washington. Fuck Hillary for taking his spot. She should never have run in the first place.

people who have been negatively impacted by the last few decades of policy

Yeah, the same "educated" people who think misogyny, xenophobia, racism, and tax fraud are tolerable traits for a President, and that making a person with those traits, and who espouses those ideals, with no political experience, and obvious sociopathic tendencies the most powerful man in the world seems like a good idea and will somehow improve the country or the planet.
