"现在的智能手表陷入了一个误区,在我们手里或口袋里已有智能手机的情况下,我不觉得我们还需要另一款设备。研发可佩戴的科技设备是可以的,但是它必须是一种补充性的产品。此外,我们还需要设计佩戴在我们身体其他部位或服装上的设备,因为我们的手腕往往会被其他更贵重的物品占据,例如价值数万美元的真正的手表。你不会将真正贵重的手表锁进抽屉,而将廉价的智能手表戴着手腕上吧。这就是苹果为何从瑞士豪表制造商那里挖来高级管理人才的原因。当苹果最终推出人们期待已久的iWatch时,它必须在功能、设计和名声上超过iPhone,否则它就没有推出的必要。"

"The General Magic unit will have a radio on it?" I ask.

"Yeah, it’ll be like a Sony FM Teletouch - it has an FM radio in it, with subcarrier reception so it can get the data at the same time," says Bill. "And what’ll happen is, you’ll be buying music directly from a specific direct-mail CD place and they can afford to discount - no middleman, so they can afford to sell it at half the going rate, I can buy $7 CDs instead of $15 CDs. And you know what’s cool for the radio station? The radio station gets tagged, because this device knew what station you were listening to, and what time. So in your order, they include the information, and the CD guys can send a fee over to the radio station to subsidize them for playing it."

In its early days General Magic radiated a lot of excitement. It had a very nice interface that obviously drew upon Bill’s HyperCard and Andy’s Mac interface, with the unmistakable graphic imprint of Susan Kare. The basic screen looked like a desktop with various tools; on the desk was a postcard that one could fill out and send to anyone.

Bill explains that the starting point was HyperCard, and from there they built a telecommunications interface: “The first concept we latched onto was Telecards, something dropping out of the sky and landing in your pocket.”

"Bill spent our first week working on it, and we had a postcard that looks very much like the one we’re shipping today," says Andy.

"Andy made a little server on the Macintosh," recalls Bill.

"Within three days of having the idea of wanting to do a service, we had a HyperCard mock-up on the Mac with little Telecards and a server going that actually sent the mail," says Andy. "Then we came up with one of our seminal ideas - rubber stamps with semantics."

"You want things to be emotionally and visually appealing, not just functional," says Bill. "Instead of raw text, you want some graphics to really help make it appealing, but even the simplest graphics editor we could think of has the problem that it takes time to draw - and an even worse problem that most people can’t draw something beautiful, something they love. They can scribble, but they can’t draw something attractive. The rubber stamps are an outgrowth of those little stickers kids use. People can arbitrarily assign properties to them - there are scripts inside them. For instance, the stamp marked URGENT has a script that marks it as such."

"“为什么不去硅谷?”面对新浪科技的这个话题,莫博士笑了起来。“好问题,我觉得科技记者需要去硅谷,他们需要报道和关注行业和技术发展。但我是给普通消费者写专栏的,我希望站在行业之外来看产品,只关注产品本身,而不是行业本身。另一方面,我家也在东部,我不想离他们太远。我每年差不多都会飞去加州数次,而大部分情况是,(科技公司) 都来华盛顿特区找我,因为我是《华尔街日报》的科技专栏作家”。"

"That’s the biggest thing, as all these different things are converging from the laptops getting smaller and the cell phones getting more display and CD players getting more display. It’s like a lot of different areas are converging on an electronic box that’s in your pocket, that’s with you all the time, that supports you in some way. That’s going to happen with or without General Magic. I think one of our big opportunities here is to set the pace of that device so that it’s something that people welcome into their lives and enjoy, as opposed to something they submit to and suffer along with"
