@tekochip-  It's nice to see Timex taking the initiative to come up with a Smart watch. Sony has put in much effort to come up with this product working with an Android OS.

@NadineJ – I am a big fan of this watch, I saw Sony announcing that the Smart watch 2 will be out very soon with much more features. This is one of the greatest innovations from Sony

I'm not sure that Facetime on a watch wouldn't be a popular app for the smartwatch.  We may see in just the next few months a significant foray by Apple (if rumors are true) and other in this space to offer new solutions. Sould be interesting.  I haven't worn a watch in years.

You're right, Rob. I'm dating myself. Any smartphone is better than Dick Tracy's two-way wrist radio, and probably equal to his two-way wrist TV.

Nancy, don't get me wrong, I think the idea is cool. I just don't think it makes sense for everyone. I do miss the finer detail I could see when I was under 30.

I agree, Ann - I can see just fine with my glasses. But I get really frustrated trying to scroll to get the information I am trying to see on a web page with a phone sized screen - I can't imagine how much more frustrating it would be on a smart watch.

I can envision Greg's comment regarding a camera-phone function since no text would be involved. On the go video-conferencing makes sense and would work with the smaller screen size.

I have the same issue as Nancy with such tiny screens--I can't see anything on them. A t least for me, it's not a matter of wearing glasses, I do wear them. But the images don't resolve into something meaningful.

The funny thing is, Chuck, we might be out future-ing the gadgets of our childhood heros. We've way past Dick Tracy's watch. His watch couldn't check the performance of a factory.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
