Why I hate smartwatches

Ever since the inception of the smartwatch, I’ve found myself looking more and more upon that abhorrent concept with disgust and hatred. I thought I’d take some time to expound a little on why I dislike them so much. I suppose my initial reaction to the smartwatch lies in my disdain for “wearables” in general.

Pebble appstore is here at last!

At CES in January there were a few major talking points. John Legere got kicked out of AT&T’s party, Michael Bay walked off stage during a Samsung event, and Pebble announced its new Pebble Steel smartwatch and appstore.
