Here is the tenth episode of The Incoherent Podcast, in which we planned to talk about Mobile World Congress and the Apple Spring Forward event and instead spent all of our time talking about Apple and the new Apple Watch.

First we revisit the fancy Sony SD card and discuss some feedback we got on our previous commentary in episode 8 Loopy Apple Car.

Then it’s into the Apple pring Forward event, where we spend a little bit of time going over the Apple TV portion of the event (the HBO partnership is quite interesting) and then go into deeper depth on the newly announced MacBook.

Mark waxes poetically on the lack of ports while Ben remains sceptical that he could ever use a computer with only one port. We both agree that the colour choices (particularly) the gold makes a lot of sense and go over some of the other new MacBook features.

Then we do a deep-dive into the Apple-Watch. We take a look at the features, the apps demoed, the battery life, the pricing, and try to figure out whether we are bullish or bearish on the the future of the Apple Watch.

In the end we are pretty bullish on the Apple watch, although Ben decreases his first year predictions to 11 million in the first quarter and 22 million in the first year, and refuses to admit that he really wants to buy one. Mark sadly forgets to answer Ben’s question and his prediction of 10 million in the first quarter and 30 million in the first year still stands. He’s also thinking of picking one up.

If you are feeling bullish or bearish on the Apple Watch let us know in the comments below or on twitter: @IncoherentPod. If you think you know how many Apple Watches will be sold in the first year we’d love to hear that as well.

Editor’s Note: The Chromecast actually costs $39.00 CDN, making the Apple TV that much better of a deal in our ever so humble opinion.
