+Morgan Spurlock did a nice show on Bitcoin last night on Inside Man on CNN. He spent a week using nothing but bitcoin.

He didn't have too many problems except for paying his bills (electric, etc) and the coffee shop with the $25 bitcoin minimum (he bought like 10 coffees to get around that).

Morgan Spurlock, the Academy Award nominated director of "Super Size Me," is back with an all-new season of insider investigations. He's going inside to find the next big things, from bitcoin to medical tourism to robots and more.

+Jacob Burrell this is a landing and signup page to get people to commit to spending bitcoins on lunch once a month. That's really it. Maybe I'll add a newsletter written by insiders if I can get support for that.

Really no Apple Watch discussion here? Was it removed?  

While obviously they are doing many things that Android Wear does, there is some original stuff there. The launcher looks pretty cool for instance and is something Android Wear needs improvement on IMO.

Thoughts?

+Paul Goldstein This is my hope too! I think that Apple (to my disappointment) have not raised the bar - which I hope does not mean that Google will slacken off their innovation.

As for battery life - there is a limit that everyone needs. For me it is 24 hours.

Case in point last night - at midnight I had to rush my wife to the hospital (everything turned out ok thankfully) and we were back home at 2am. I had my Gear Live off the charger since 7:30 am. It was still going strong at 2am with 25% remaining. If it had stopped while at the hospital - while not the end of the world - would still be an inconvenience and would lessen the utility of this device, as it was - I was happy.

It also helped to reduce the battery life on my phone during the day - which meant I could still use the phone at that late hour as well - which is a very important device to have when you are at hospitals - especially as my phone contains all my and my wife's medical details - and is the main communication with the rest of our family.

I need a good solution for basic gesture recognition (touchless), like swipe left, up, down, right, tap. 

I've seen http://www.hoverlabs.co/#hover which looks very cool, but doesn't seem suited for something that could be hidden inside say a panel frame. Can it be enclosed at all? If it is based on capacitance then maybe not.

I've experimented with both PIR sensors and IR emitter/detectors. Both of which work but each have their issues. A pair of PIR or IR sensors can in theory detect swipe direction. But it would be great if their was a nice packaged solution with software for this. 

Need something small that can be effectively hidden (maybe some small holes or ir transmissive plastic covering it).

A Pi camera or webcam with openCV could be a good place to start.

Amazon won't. They'd need to create their own OS (Android Wear doesn't allow manufacturer skins) and I'm sure that would be too costly. Also, a smartwatch from Amazon would add little of interest. Their devices are mostly about bringing their content to more people, and books/music/video doesn't work on a watch. Maybe a remote control watch for Fire TV... 😉
