Very much look forward to this one. I have used both first and second generation (test version) Samsung Gear devices and they are improving over the time but I don't see myself using it everyday. There is still some Samsung software feel that I hate so much. They are good with hardware but they need software and this could be it.
Motorola feels more promising at this point but it might take few years to really see what Android Wear and its hardware partners are capable of.

That's some performance optimization right there! 

Switched clients website from shared web hosting to VPS with LEMP + Memcached + W3 Total Cache and developed a custom WordPress theme.

Main performance gain come from custom WordPress theme as previous one had some nasty performance hog related to theme settings panel. We decided that switching to a completely new one would be a much easier, faster and more efficient solution and it turned out we were right. 

This website has over 300,000 unique visitors a month and over 1.2 million page views and it is now running on a server with only 512MB of RAM. However, decent load balancer is in place, just in case.

+Csaba Kissi Great results!

Now my default setup for new servers is easyengine with fastcgi_cache, Memcached and HHVM. But this setup requires at least 2 GB of RAM under any load but it can handle millions of hits a day with ease.

I just updated from Linksys  + WD hard drive to Time Capsule and first impressions are 50:50

Pros:
- Smaller footprint,
- It easier to setup and is always on when you need it.
- Awesome design.
- It just works

Cons:
- It is much slower than my old setup.
- There are lack of configuration options. 
- It has a USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0. 
- Range is worse than most other $150+ routers.

Still I am satisfied with this upgrade because it just works and I don't need to pay any attention to it like I had with WD + Linksys. 

If you are looking for performance then this is not the best options. Also range is worse but is obviously better than for the previous gen Time Capsule and other cheap routers. Any $150+ router will have much better range than Time Capsule but like I said it just works.

The best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question, it's to post the wrong answer.

This is an amazing concept but this is only for some users. This doesn't take into consideration that people are dumb, lazy and don't want to learn and memorize things but rather discover themselves and push everything randomly. This interface would require manual and nobody reads manual unless something is broken or everything else failed. 

Personally I love this concept and would love to use it but as UI/UX designer I can see flaws from far, far away. Probably it is ahead of its time. Probably.
