Wearables Wreak Havoc Sparked by Google Glass and smartwatches, wearable gadgets have become a tour de force in the tech sector. They're not just for consumers, either. Forrester analyst J.P. Gownder predicts wearables will soon be taking the enterprise by storm, with the company-provided wearables market surpassing the consumer market within the next five years.
