    Wait, what "We scan applications not on Google Play". That doesn't sound right. It's smart, but I bet users aren't expecting that scan.

    "That adds up to 20 billion texts per day. 93 million selfies: "The team tells me about 31 million of these are duckfaces." ha."Does Google read user texts? Or is that just a joke?

    9:24:08 AM PDTThere are shadows throughout here too. Developers can specify an "elevation value" for anything in the UI.9:23:48 AM PDT"Material has physical surfaces and edges." Duarte is talking about the primitive human mind, which gets objects.Interesting.

    It's also sell in not sell through.The L stuff looked good, in a kinda "yah we're ripping off Metro even more than people thought Apple would" kinda way. They shoulda stopped there. Nothing else was ready for prime time and it devolved into an overly long mess.

    Is there a point to owning a smartwatch yet? Although I must say the $199 price tag is getting closer to impulse purchase territory.

    Hanson,

    After seeing today's demo by Samsung, I believe so.

    However, as impressive as a SmartWatch presentation it was, I can't make
    any final decisions until Apple introduces their iWatch in a few months.

    Funny...the choice on my next brand of phone will probably depend on who
    makes the better SmartWatch.
