Pebbles, Google Glass, and all that

At work this week a colleague had a pebble watch. t’s really, really neat. 

Apart from one small thing:  it’s … one tenth of what it could be.

And all the fuss around Google glass  – again, it’s not even starting to get there.

If I’m going to wear a bit of technology, it needs some useful features.

Facial recognition: if I walk up to someone I haven’t seen for a while it should tell me who they are, when I last met them, and anything else relevant.

Navigation: if you’re heading for the pub you arranged to meet the guys at, you need to turn right here.

Money: when I look at a menu, remind me I’ve already overspent on dining out this month and to go for a cheaper option.

Seriously, guys, you can do better with this technology than recording everyone bullshitting their mates in the pub and putting it on YouTube.
