Phil, apologies if previously asked,but what place do you see Pebble, etc., having in schools? Learning tool or distraction in class (like cellphones are sometimes). As a teacher, I'm also worried about test security. Thanks.

Any words out if the old Galaxy Gear will work and be compatible with the new Android Wear App?
It's sad how Samsung fooled us with 3 new gear wear since the original Gear in what 7 months?

one question Phil, where did you get the metal band on your G Watch?

Lee Petchey says:

Phil posted a link on his G+ page. About $40, I think. A lot more if you try and pick it up in the UK!

Love all the coverage on AndroidWear. Really want a 360 but, dang, that black bar at the bottom stands out so bad.
