iWatch Rumors

The rumors are getting louder and louder that the iWatch will have a screen. While my no-screen prediction for the iWatch is likely wrong, I can’t say that I’m that disappointed. This device should be absolutely fascinating to see. I’m particularly interested in see the non-obvious use cases Apple lays out as well as the UX between the iPhone and the iWatch. This is one of those rare times in tech where there’s just so little known. Watching the keynote unfold will be like Christmas morning for this geek. 

From Dan Primack today:

Update #3: Yes, you just read that correctly: KKR participated in a pure venture capital deal. Sure it’s later-stage, but it’s certainly not a buyout. You may recall that we wrote in January about how KKR was considering the launch of a tech growth equity investing platform, and it seems that the consideration gave way to execution. Not only has KKR backed FanDuel, but it also invested £100 million into British online retailer The Hut Group back in June, and today said that it was plugging $90 million into luxury smart home technology company Savant Systems.
