Watch This?

LG G Watch running Android Wear
If the first crop of Android Wear smartwatches falls just outside of your price range, don’t fret — ASUS may soon come to your rescue. TechCrunch claims that the Taiwanese firm is developing Google-powered wristwear with a target price between $99 and $149, or at least $50 less than LG’s relatively frugal G Watch.

I’m not going to get all goatse-bearded hipster douchebag Google Glass hysterical on you, but I do have to confess to wondering what the usefulness of these things are. I guess for some sorts of specialized sports or medical use they might have a role when the hardware needs to actually make contact with the skin, but otherwise…?

And nobody but goatse-bearded hipster douchebags are going to claim they’re really attractive, either.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
