On top of that, I limited myself to spending no more than $500 validating this idea. The experiment was a success.In just two weeks, I built an email list of 565 subscribers without having an actual website. Then, I reached out to a handful of those subscribers and pre-sold 12 copies of a book that didn't even exist yet, all in less than 30 days. I wrote about the experiment in real-time with in-depth weekly updates, successes, failures and lessons learned along the way, right here in my validation challenge.

Apple Watch to hit Indian market on November 6



Tech giant Apple will finally launch its smartwatch 'Apple Watch' in India on November 6. It announced the decision on its website without disclosing the pricing. 

The smartwatch was launched in few countries including the US, France, Japan, and the UK in April this year and has been rolled out to other geographies in a phased manner. 

Launched in three variants (Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition) and two sizes (38 mm and 42 mm), the Apple Watch is priced between $349 (over Rs. 23,000) to a whopping $17,000 (about Rs. 11 lakh) for the gold model. 
Recently, Apple had partnered luxury brand Herm for a new edition priced $1,100 (about Rs. 71,300) onwards. Reports suggest the Cupertino-based firm is already looking at introducing the second edition of the device by middle of next year. 

Notably, Apple Watch is the first new product category to be launched under Cook, who took over the reins of the company after Steve Jobs stepped down. 

This is also the first new device category since 2010, when Apple entered the tablet market with its iPad. 

FEATURES: 
Apple Watch delivers up to 18-hour battery life and has digital face that can look like a traditional time piece. It allows users to make and receive calls, read e-mails, control music, manage Instagram photos and keep track of fitness using the smartwatch.
