The question that all Dev's need to ask themselves about apps for wearables: why would I do that on my watch when my phone is right there?

I don't have time to watch/listen to everything I want to watch, how pathetic is your life when you start consuming things you know you hate, just to bitch about it?

Technology may be disruptive, but medical devices are regulated.

Yup
 
The Apple Watch Edition starts at $10,000. That's dumb. Yes, you can easily spend $10,000 on a Rolex, but with proper maintenance they will run for decades at least.

The $10k Apple Watch will last, what, two or three years? The sealed in battery will start to fail, the screen will get stuck/dead pixels, and it will certainly be eclipsed by better models each year. When the hardware moves on, Apple will eventually stop updating this model, and apps will start relying on newer APIs which this first gen watch won't support.

I don't care what justifications people come up with. The Apple Watch Edition is a stupid purchase no matter how much money you have.

Another app for the crap folder
 
No, you can't delete the new Apple Watch app on your iPhone

This shouldn't be all that surprising. It is Apple we're talking about. The iOS 8.2 update came with a new app to support the Apple Watch and even if you don't plan on buying the watch, you can't delete the app. Apple should have a) just baked the application into settings under a new section, because they would NEVER do b) allow users to download and install the application on their own, because that doesn't go along with the Apple way of telling their users what they need.

Good Guy Google on the other hand doesn't force the Android Wear application on all 81% of the world's smartphone users. Thanks Google! (I guess technically it's not 81%, since not everyone is running Android 4.3 and higher.)
The Apple Watch will hit stores next month, but Apple is wasting no time in getting you hyped about one day owning one. As part of the iOS 8.2 update, a new app finds its way onto your homescreen,...

Today at @Official_GDC, @MotigaGames announced Gigantic (@GoGigantic) coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One http://mjr.mn/17RFNo7 
Gigantic is an upcoming free-to-play, 5v5, third-person game from Motiga with a fast-paced shooter feel but the customization and leveling of an RPG.

I can already hear the FDA going apeshit over this
Fourteen of 23 top hospitals said they have rolled out a pilot program of Apple's HealthKit service.
