I've always imagined a watch that I could get information on. Not really sure why, perhaps inspired by Star Trek and other cartoons when I was a kid.With the SPOT watch, that wish came true. I paid 50 bucks a year, and got a watch that let me get stock quotes, news headlines, sports scores and other tidbits of trivia. I enjoyed wearing the watch for a while, but am getting bored with it now.

The reason is that I don't like the look of this watch; even if some watch company were to make a really cool looking watch, I don't think I would still wear it, because I like the watch I already had! Another problem is that I'm not yet getting information on it that I really would like to. Ideally, there would be a way in which I could program from my PC the websites that I want to get info from, and then those websites would send me down relevant info in the "watch" format. Take for instance sports. I really don't care about the Mariners or the Angels or Yankees when it comes to sports. I care about cricket, and I want to know the scores when my country plays. Similarly, I care about news headlines from India, and other miscellaneous stuff. Finally, I can't talk to my watch. I have to be able to talk to my watch and command it to do things for me in order for my childhood fantasy to come to reality :)

So, while I wear it occasionally because it invites conversation and brainstorming :), I probably won't stick with the watch until something else on the watch compels me to want it...
