    The wrist watch has gone through a period of time when I thought it would be replaced by the smart phone. Once again Apple changed the world and revived the wrist watch by introducing the iPhone.

    Steve Jobs quote to John Sculley: Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life? Or do you want to come with me and change the world?”

      Fictional spydom has long used the wrist watch as a communication device. If Apple added Alexa to the watch, we’d be catching up with TV and movie devices.

      Where’s my shoe phone?

        It’s Alexa’s older and less smart cousin, Siri. 🙂 Apple doesn’t make Siri smarter by listening to everything you say and everything that you search. 🙁

        You’re right. It will be Siri. Alexa belongs to Amazon.

    This record is so delicious. The balance of guitar to voice and the interplay of the two. The guitar sings this song as much as the lyric: deliberate, articulate, distinctive vocabulary. And the lyric is pattern too, with just enough nuance in the repetition to tell the story.

      Rowen,
      I don’t have the words to describe what I hear as well as you do. I know what it is which attracts me to a specific singer or song. Lightin’ Hopkins was a long time ago find. I have not been disappointed by his music.
