Today, Apple unveiled its new Apple Watch. The watch uses a "crown" that you twist to do things like scroll or zoom in on a map.
UNLESS YOU'RE A LEFTY.
Lefties are used to a world that's not made for us.
But this is like those right-handed desks from high school all over again.
Lefties could, in theory, just wear the watch on their left hands anyway, right?
Interestingly, in a 1984 interview, Steve Jobs said most of the best engineers he knew were lefties:
What do people do for fun out here? I've noticed that an awful lot of those who work for you either play music or are extremely interested in it.
Oh yes. And most of them are also left-handed, whatever that means. Almost all of the really great technical people in computers that I've known are left-handed. Isn't that odd?
Are you left-handed?
Rise up, lefties!
A reporter on site at the Apple event announces that, having tried it out, the watch does in fact have a left-handed mode. Next time, Apple may want to point this out in the keynote — and avoid the wrath of the left-handers.
