I can see the texts now:



Samsung went for the whole "iWatch" decoy thing like a fly to… well, you know. And what did they come up with? A watch uglier than a plastic Casio, circa 1981.
The entire design team at Apple is laughing their guts out over this disaster.

Should be safe wearing one. they're too ugly to steal.

Oh yeah… that is ugly. Looks like something from the 70s.

I'll wait until such devices have a holographic display, my eyes aren't getting better and postage-stamp screens aren't exactly ideal for that.

A Fallout Pip-Boy looks more elegant.

I was reading somewhere that the battery only lasts 10 hours… *facepalm*.

They don't intend to sell many of them. It's a tactic to poison Apple's well when the iWatch comes out in a few weeks.

I don't wear a watch.

If that were true, it won't work. It will just make a product by Apple look a thousand times better. Not that I believe the "iWatch" rumors, mind you. I think they're a smokescreen, and a cheap way to get competitors to waste R&D money on guaranteed flops. Seems to be working, too.

May I offer a name for this strategy? How about "Fail-bait."
