Use cases on this are indeed quite narrow.  I loaded it, but haven't touched it since then. :)

Quite the snowy and icy morning in Atlanta.  Thankfully, the sun has come out and it's quickly melting off.  Back to the office tomorrow, I expect.

Interesting angle. I'm enjoying Pebble and it's useful data in a fairly subtle package, but the next few years should be very interesting.
 
Why a blinking light is the best wearable interface.

The first successful personal computer didn’t have a screen -- not even a command-line screen. It communicated with the user through blinking lights. It was called the MITS Altair 8800. This blinking-light box was such a revolution, a kid named Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard to write software for it. 

I have the feeling that the first successful wearable computer will also show nothing more than blinking lights. 

I’m going to tell you why the high-rez wearables may not go mainstream over next couple of years, but why blinking-lights devices might.

But first, let’s check out two interesting blinking light wearable devices.

The car couldn't make it up the driveway by the time I got home.  I'll get tucked away later today or tomorrow.

Great new feature.  I can see this being quite handy when driving.

That actually sounds pretty handy, will be better if the read back of messages is improved too.

I wish more restaurants had these triangular crayons -- they don't roll off the table!

I'm liking Markdown so far (a new way to write blog posts in WordPress), but kept having to look up the syntax since I was new to it.  To help with that, we created a simple PDF "cheat sheet" for anyone that wants to learn how it works.  Check it out.

I agree that this is a feature that should wind up in core, but I can see a purpose to Jetpack.  If you need a light-weight site, just don't install it and you're all set!  If all of those features were in core, it'd be more work to remove them.

This video is great!  Hangouts eliminate a lot of (but not all of those issues), and it drives me nuts when I have to do an "old fashioned" conference call and deal with all of that. :)
