Submission + - Dick Tracy's Watch: The Tech Meme That Won't Die (time.com)

harrymcc writes: "Rumor has it that Apple is working on a smartwatch.

That's not surprising--Tracy's watch always comes up in discussions of wearable communications gadgetry. And it has since 1947, shortly after the comic-strip cop first got his wrist radio. Over at TIME, I took a look at this seemingly indestrictible cultural touchstone."
