[Update] I'm going to wait on my original plan to wait for the 3.0. Just bought a Jawbone Up24 to hold me over. 
 
Why am I going to eat crow and now buy an Apple Watch?
I'm in the market for a fitness tracker (see Fitbit, Jawbone, Withings, etc). When I saw what was offered and their associated prices, I noticed they're very similar to the "iWatch" albeit $150 less for Apple's cheapest model. Now, why would I not just bite the $150 and get the device that has a better build quality, more features, and works seamlessly with my other Apple products? Why would I learn another language and go into another walled garden? Hence, I'll be taking the plunge on April10th. Wish me luck.

Like the Isley Brothers said, "It's your thing. Do what you want to do."

I hope it works out for you, but I haven't cared for anything Apple since the early 90s.

I trust you'll keep us updated.

Consider Yourself Warned!!!
 
Freedom of speech no longer exists in Britain. The land that gave the world the Magna Carta, the Levellers, and John Stuart Mill—three of the key foundation stones of the modern conception of liberty—is now arresting and even jailing people simply for speaking their minds.
From the Internet to the press to the public square, Brits' speech is being policed and punished

Want to understand qualitatively how we got ourselves into a failed "War On Drugs"? Watch PBS's special on "Prohibition".

Why I carry ... sometimes in my own house.
 
Breitbart: An 18-year-old home invader chose the wrong house for a daylight robbery in Arlington, Texas, and was shot and killed by the homeowner, who was in the residence at the time. A next-door neighbor commented on the incident: “People work hard for [their] stuff, you can’t just break into somebody’s house. [If you do,] it’s the chance you take.”

Wow. A stealth gun grab that starts with trained veterans first.
 
NRA-ILA: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) brought renewed attention to the plight of a growing number of veterans who have been unjustly stripped of their Second Amendment rights. In a letter to Eric Holder, Sen. Grassley takes the Department of Veterans Affairs to task for overreaching policies that have resulted in the names of well over 100,000 veterans and dependents being placed in the FBI’s National Instance Criminal Background Check System as prohibited from possessing firearms.

Story
Introduction
"I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery"

 Jean-Jacques Rousseau

"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence upon those who would do us harm."

- George Orwell

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”

- Adolf Hitler

“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell, or an extremely wretched life as paradise.”

- Adolf Hitler

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

- Hermann Goering
Speaking at the Nuremburg Trials
18th April 1946

“We can't expect the European People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.”

- Nikita Khrushchev

“Sometimes people mistake the way I talk for what I am thinking.”

- Idi Amin

"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever." 

- "1984" by George Orwell 

After the Israelites plead with Samuel to ask God for a King when all they needed was the Covenant that God gave them in order to be Free ... "This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, for his chariots. And he will take your daughters, to be cooks. And he will take your fields, and your olive yards, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and of your sheep. And ye shall be his servants.

And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen, and the Lord will not hear you in that day. 

But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.”

When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the Lord. The Lord answered, “Listen to them and give them a king.”

Then Samuel said to the Israelites, “Everyone go back to your own town.”

- First Book of Samuel Chapter 8 Verse 11-22
