LISBON Justin Jones Chargers Jersey , Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva called on Greece to cooperate with Europe and said Portugal had contributed with millions of euros from taxpayers' pockets to help its neighbors.
"Portugal has shown solidarity with Greece for it to remain in the eurozone," Cavaco Silva said on the sidelines of a public ceremony in Lisbon, according to Portuguse news agency Lusa.
"As well as the loan we made to Greece amounting to around 1.1 billion euros, Portugal has transferred the product of interest on bonds in possession of the Bank of Portugal, which has come from the pockets of Portuguese tax payers Rayshawn Jenkins Chargers Jersey ," he added.
Cavaco Silva also said Greece could not do "what it pleases" and that the coordination of policies in the eurozone mean that state members have to coordinate, adding that "the economies are interconnected and influence each other."
Greece's debt stands at 175 percent of its gross domestic product. Greece's new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has been touring Europe to seek support for his plans to ease austerity and lowering the debt burden.
Tsipras stuck to a rigid anti-austerity stance on Wednesday during negotiations with European creditors in Brussels and insisted he was still seeking a new debt deal.
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble rejected Tsipiras' bid, while other officials considered extending the repayment deadline for Greece's loan or lowering its interest rate.
Apple (NasdaqGS: AAPL - news) 's hotly-anticipated smartwatch is expected to debut Monday as the trend-setting firm sets out to make stylish wrist-worn computers must-have accessories for modern lifestyles.
Industry trackers say Apple Watch will star at a media event being held at the same San Francisco theater where the California tech giant introduced the iPad.
Apple's chief executive Tim Cook has revealed little about the sophisticated wrist wear, but has said that he "can't live without it."
The company announced its plans for Apple Watch last year to much fanfare and has said it would begin shipping in April.
It will mark Apple's first new product type since the iPad in 2010.
Apple has indicated that the entry price would be $349 in the United States, and that two different sizes would be available in three collections Dan Feeney Chargers Jersey , including the "Apple Watch Edition," featuring 18-karat gold cases in yellow or rose, sapphire crystal and finely crafted bands and closures.
The Apple device will connect with the iPhone, and also have a range of apps and sensors, notably for health and fitness.
The watch is also expected to include map software that guides people to destinations with gentle "taps" on the wrist.
Fitness apps on the Apple Watch and its rivals could spell trouble for makers of fitness bands from companies like Jawbone Forrest Lamp Chargers Jersey , Fitbit and Nike (Sao Paolo: NIKE34.SA - news) .
"Apple is poised to once again show how computing platforms are won or lost on the one-two punch of eager consumers and hungry ecosystem partners," said Forrester Research (NasdaqGS: FORR - news) analyst James McQuivey.
Apple reportedly had to scale back health tracking features on the watch after some sensors didn't rise to the challenges.
- Catalyze, dominate the market -
It remains unclear whether Apple (Swiss: AAPL.SW - news) -- a latecomer to the wearables segment -- would do for smartwatches what the iPod did for MP3 players and the iPad did for tablet computers.
Apple enters a segment crowded with vendors ranging from South Korean giants Samsung and LG (KSE: 003550.KS - news) , to Japan's Sony (Hanover: SON1.HA - news) and startups such as Pebble.
Motorola, acquired by Chinese giant Lenovo last year Mike Williams Chargers Jersey , also produces a smartwatch, and China's Huawei introduced its version at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month.
Pebble, which burst on the scene with a crowd-funded smartwatch in 2012, this month broke the record on the Kickstarter platform with more than $16 million raised.
Research firm Strategy Analytics predicts Apple will set fire to the market from the outset, projecting sales of 15.4 million units worldwide in 2015 Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey , to give Apple a 55 percent market share.
"The Apple Watch is the catalyst to ignite the global smartwatch market," said Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston.
"Apple's famous brand, loyal fan base, deep retail presence and extensive apps ecosystem will ensure healthy uptake for its watch."
Still, he said Apple may see a few glitches that need to be ironed out.
