 If I get a text or call, I don't have to pull my phone out of my pocket to see who it is. If the brief glance at my watch reveals that it's important enough to stop or modify what I'm doing, e.g. running, driving or in a meeting, then I can pull my phone out.Yes, this is convenience, not necessity, and $150 is a bit much, but if it proves popular, the price will come down.
 According to the Mythbusters, yes. :) And the only good NFC, is disabled NFC.
 While I agree with regard to many Bluetooth headphones, I don't think that's a universally applicable statement. My Nokia 905 headset is really quite awesome when connected via BT. Much better than merely "proper". Too bad they don't make 'em anymore. I'd get another set, even at the price.
I happened to see this article this morning before reading AI. It addresses almost every point raised here by previous posters, and a couple more. http://kfury.com/what-an-apple-watch-is-good-for I'm not sure that I would go for one, but then, I'm an old fart who still wears a self-winding analog clock face wristwatch, even though I have iPhone and multiple other devices that tell time. A device such as the one described in the above article does sound useful though.
 No.The statement "I do not believe God exists" is not logically equivalent to "I believe God does not exist."If you can't honestly see the difference between those two statements, then further discussion is pointless.
 Mine too. Sounded halfway decent until that little revelation.For those who are otherwise interested, but don't want to give their phone number, will it work with a Google Voice number?
The author of this article and I appear to have wide divergent definitions of "nearly identical". If those are "nearly identical", then I am "nearly identical" to Brad Pitt.
Being a gamer geek, I could see using something like this for table top role playing games. Especially with the multi-touch capability. Ideally, it should be bigger, though, and while the idea of a battery is cool, I think it adds unnessary weight to the device. Something that big isn't really "portable" in the same sense as a tablet, so the additional weight and inconvenience of an external power supply would be insignificant balanced against the decreased weight...
 It takes longer for a route to show clear than it does to show it congested. When Waze gets data that shows a route as congested and then other Waze users avoid it, and so Waze doesn't then get updated data showing that it's cleared up as quickly as the congestion data.I've noticed several times on my "standard" route home that Waze sometimes shows reduced speed notices, which then disappear from the map after I go through at full speed.
 "sic" does not automatically indicate a misspelling, though it's often used that way. It's used to denote something that appeared as shown in the original. For those unfamiliar with alternate spellings, it was probably intended to fend off endless comments about how the word was misspelled.
