Many believe wearable technology will do to tablets and smartphones what they did to laptops and PCs. There is certainly high probability that at a minimum, today’s mobile devices will lose large amounts of share to computers you wear.

This explains why Google is working with Warby Parker and why Apple just hired Yves Saint Laurent CEO Paul Deneve to manage “special projects.”

Next month, TMC will launch Wearable Tech Expo in Manhattan and it will be very interesting to hear what the industry thinks about this Apple news.
