Galaxy Gear

Looks like Samsung beat Apple to the punch with a smart watch. My good friend Michele reports via VentureBeat the first images of the newest gadget:

Sure Samsung, a company I admire a lot and whose products I happily use, outsped everybody to the market, but this is actually bad news, because the product is so damn butt-ugly no amount of nerd credits will ever force me to wear one. Sporting Google Glasses at a dinner with your SOG is cool by comparison.

They should have waited for Apple (I company I admire less and less) to come out with its product and the do one that’s just like it, with some minor incremental improvement.

Sorry Samsung, but this product announcement sadly shows how many lightyears there are still between Seoul and Cupertino.
