Smart Watches, Dumb People

Microsoft unveils smart watch technology. Wow! How incredibly Dick Tracy of them.

"The wrist is a natural place to go for information," said Chris Schneider, program manager with Microsoft's Smart Personal Objects Technology, or SPOT.

Well, sure it's natural...if that information happens to be the current time. I mean, do we really need yet another distraction to keep peoples' eyes off the road? Or to keep them from paying attention to others walking around them?

Of course, all of thise just reminds me of Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie's bit about digital pants.
