During a recent taping of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart's guest, Jon Hamm, received a text message on his Apple Watch. I attended a taping of The Daily Show just last month, and attendees have to keep their cellphones off. I guess that doesn't apply to celebrity guests! Stewart noticed his guest's notification about five minutes into the interview and spent some time ribbing Hamm about it. I half-expected him to reply to the sender with an audio recording by the two Jons. Whether Hamm had his iPhone in the dressing room nearby, or on his person, it was a great example of how convenient the Apple Watch can be. The wearer can choose to ignore the notice, or respond with voice either as an audio recording or trasncribed via Siri, or select from assorted preconfigured messages.
