Where does Samsung Gear lead us

The primary attraction of Samsung Gear is that it is a wearable computer. That means you carry it with you, everywhere you go, it doesn't get in your way, and you are less likely to forget it.

The reviews eg: http://www.theverge.com/2013/9/4/4692824/samsung-galaxy-gear-features-specs-release-date-price aren't necessarily so great. Perhaps this is just the first generation offering, and could do with a lot more improvement. But the possibilities are exciting. Here's where I hope it will lead us to in the next 3-5 years.

- The watch is the mobile. ie. you wear a mobile, not carry it

For basic operations don't use a touch screen, just a set of voice commands (google glass like). You no longer need to absolutely carry another mobile or laptop with you.

- Personal data and app store, wherever you go

The watch serves as a datastore/app repository thats available to you everywhere you go. Come to think of it, its better than the cloud. Currently the mobile is the server and the watch the client. I imagine the roles will be reversed. Since the watch will be the personal data and app store, you can now use it via any number of clients - mobiles, tablets, laptops or desktops. Anything but the most rudimentary UI and data entry is managed by the clients. Should even be helpful where people do not want to keep really private data on the cloud - just keep it on the watch.

- Non obtrusive secretary

One of the issues with mobiles is that everyone needs to keep their heads down staring at the mobiles. Now you could be dictating or listening to the content, with the watch no longer being the center of your attention. 

- Health gets a priority

Health and fitness related apps will definitely get a boost.

The conference speaker checklist

I attended Pycon India 2013 over the weekend. It was a very well run conference, perhaps the best till date. Nevertheless, a few talks could've been better. Towards that end, this is the conference speaker checklist a speaker could review before stepping up on the podium.

* First think of what value the audience is going to get out of it, not the sales value or the bragging rights for the speaker.
* If you are going to talk about how cool your company is, get it done very quickly, in the first couple of minutes.
* Realise the core value the audience seeks. If they are a bunch of python developers don't stick them with a long lecture on consumer psychology. Give them something that they as python developers find useful.
* Do not make the title of the talk much grander than the content. The two need to be consistent
* Keep the title of your talk unambiguous. Else you will have a larger proportion of bored, uninterested audience, who will frequently be walking out of your talk.
* Don't reuse sales collateral blindly. Pass it through the relevance filter
* And please don't just talk about what considerations programs should be written with - show the code.

I couldn't attend Pycon India 2013 - But attended one in 2010 (b'lore) and 2011 (Pune) But several of these points were relevant event back then (At that time, I didn't find any "branding" talks)
One other thing, isn't "funnel" supposed to take care of some of these concerns ?

Enjoyed the stay here. This is a nice top notch hotel, with very nice service. They did end up making us spend a lot of time during checkout since they totally confused the laundry bills. But it all worked out in the end. Going to overlook that.

Nice place, completely outside civilisation. But be prepared for absolutely minimalist comforts and facilities. But then, that is the charm of this place. Interesting feature, an electrified wire fence is installed to protect the residential areas at night.

A wonderful place to ride through. However be aware, it is a long ride from one checkpost to another, and checkpost closes after 2pm for two wheelers (6pm for four wheelers), because of elephants crossing the roads during twilight hours.
