Went to this cocktail bar in Paris last night called Sherry Butt where I ordered the Original Old Fashioned — which came with diamond-shaped, perfectly-clear ice!

Yeah, I don't really like the product or the design, but the concept is interesting. I wouldn't put the iPad in the "wearable" category, but something with a more appropriate screen (perhaps less costly, more efficient) would be interesting to see.

"Our new book, The Next America, draws on this research to paint a data-rich portrait of the many ways our nation is changing and the challenges we face in the decades ahead." — from +Pew Research Center  #nextamerica

But how does it work for talking? Is it speaker wise or does it come with a mini Bluetooth headset? (Wow I mightve just made that up)
