Story
Introduction
Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as senior mobile editor and became In(ternet) famous. She’s been called a “personality” and a “pundit“, but mostly she’s a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She now pimps watches as the product evangelist for Pebble. She's based in San Francisco.

Good luck with that.
 
Samsung is preparing for a 'post-Google era.'

Samsung Medial Solution Center President Hong Won-pyo told reporters today that Samsung is rapidly developing its Tizen operating system as an alternative to Android in preparation for a "post-Google era."

He said Samsung will release products that run on Tizen "as early as possible" and is looking for mergers and acquisitions to speed up the process of moving off Android.

The biggest barrier right now, he said, are "poor market conditions" (i.e. that Tizen doesn't have any apps).

1:0 for the pebble in sunlight. Compare the pixeldensity and it's 1:1 again... add color and it's 1:2. (I'm no fan of the gear at all)
