This is the Samsung Galaxy smartwatch that sells for 300 bucks. First, I remember as a kid getting ugly digital watches like this for free in Cap'n Crunch cereal box. Second, how lazy do you have to be that you can't take your phone out of your pocket? I liked hope people strapped their iPod Nano to their wrist but that's a totally different then what this device is supposed to be and do. It's another gadget trying to solve a problem that doesn't really exist.
Last night I found and went into a Barnes and Nobles that hadn't closed yet. And keeping with tradition, I read a bunch of magazines and didn't buy anything. I wonder why they keep closing their stores? (he said with tongue in cheek)

Mad Men and the Ugly 60s
I saw the season premiere last night of Mad Men and what I was afraid of has happened. The ugly fashion of the late sixties is in the show now. Even Pete Campbell, Mr. Republican WASP himself, is now sporting sideburns. I guess Draper will be wearing a leisure suit soon. Please, for the love of Mike, just don't make him get a weird afro perm like Mr. Brady of the Brady Bunch.
Publishing in the Post Print World
An excellent article in Gizmodo regarding publishing and the digital age. It’s no more a book on a screen than the notion that others had about “it” being just a horseless carriage, or just moving pictures, or just a mobile telephone. It requires new thinking about UI/UX in regards to us bookworms and the post print world.
Why Do We Keep Making Ebooks Like Paper Books?

Skyfall - film review
I just saw Skyfall and wanted to know… how do I get that Red Box machine to give me my money back? I’m being superfluous, but not by much. Half of it was your standard action flick and the other half was like watching Masterpiece Theatre. I want Quentin Tarantino to write & direct the next one and to use his suggestion to have it set in the sixties again.
And I want more babes in the next one too!
