I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. none of the topics on the title appear on your passage dude lol

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

      1. I’d like to read it…. I know it’s in the video

      2. Pass

  2. Link to Nexus smart watch?

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

  3. Yeah…..I’m interested in the Nexus watch

    1. Enjoying your Jelly ;)

    2. Betcha doesn’t have an SD card :(

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

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

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

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

    2. 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.

  6. Sapphire = Transparent Aluminum! That’s pretty cool…

  7. Video not working for me!

  8. 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.

  9. 7:41… Livin’ in the hard streets of Canada.

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

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

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

  10. 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.

  11. What about the MOTOactv?

  12. Yo Chris, Babble me bro!
