    • NIGHTSCOUT

      Think you have to watch the video……Don’t be that guy

      • james ortiz

      In the YouTube description, all the links from the video are in there.

  • BigCiX

    • Thomas

    Hm this..whatever it is,was pretty pointless without a review of the watch. Trying to draw site visits?

    • ScottColbert

      Can’t review something that doesn’t exist now, can you?

  • Unorthodox

    Babble. That’s what they bought Meebo for. Meeoogle.

    • ari_free

      Precious! Gone, gone, gone! Meeoogle is free!

    • Del373

      Meebo had multi-service functionality. If Google is planning to not only unify their chat clients but also provide a means to communicate with people using other services (Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live, Steam Chat, etc) within their new service, that would be fantabulous! Here’s hoping.

    Sapphire = Transparent Aluminum! That’s pretty cool…

  • JDRyan

    Video not working for me!

    If the Motorola X is actually customizable, I’ll buy the cellular equivalent of a dual socket motherboard with 8 graphics cards (Titans) and maxed out ram. Yes, it will run crysis.

      I don’t actually know where he is from.. So please, leave your harsh replies at home.. :)

      • Brian

        I’m sure his hair would draw more attention than a watch ;)

      It’s hard being a G in Toronto, bro.. O_o

  • Cory Skelton

    Man I’d love to see the GS5 have a sapphire display but how about coating the entire phone with it?? My screen has a mild scuff but the outer edges have a few chunks missing.
