Oops. It looks like even powerful and famous CEOs make mistakes too. In an exclusive interview with ABC News that occurred just after Apple's big press event, CEO Tim Cook was discussing how important creating jobs in America is to Apple. Toward the end of this segment of the interview, Cook accidentally lets slip the name iWatch instead of Apple Watch when referring to Apple's new wearable computing device.

It makes you wonder why they didn't just call it the iWatch to begin with. More than likely the Apple Watch name was designed to side-step any potential international copyright/trademark issues with the iWatch name.

We can't fault Tim for such a minor boo boo. After-all, when a name makes sense, it just makes sense...
