Followers of WikiTrends know that wearable computing is heating up. The trend is now getting a giant boost from Apple, which announced it is adding Paul Deneve, CEO of fashion giant Yves St Laurent, as a vice president of special projects. "Likely it is to explore the extension of the Apple brand, or its platform technology into clothing and fashion," notes Forbes. "Digital technology is in fact extending its reach to every aspect of life, including clothing and other wearables like glasses." If the next great frontier in computing is digital technology embedded in clothing, Apple may be looking to become the leader in a new form of fashion.
