1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    We are a big step closer to a useful and enjoyable to use Android powered smartwatch. In fact, there will be one available this year for only $200 bucks! And, this isn't one of those add-on devices that requires you to synch up with your other Android phone. This is a fully functional Froyo powered smartwatch from Shenzhen Phaeton Nice Electronic High-Tech Manufacturing Co. Ltd.. It currently runs on a MTK6516 chip, but they are working on a 3G-enabled MTK6573 version that will likely run Ice Cream Sandwich in the future. The current design includes a camera, microSD slot, speaker and microphone, and a 2-inch 320×240 capacitive display.

    Although this current generation is a bit on the "thick" side, they may be close to one that would make Dick Tracey and James Bond proud! Check out the video above!

    Not that thick I have a Nixon 5130 and its the same size looking. Pretty cool I would say. 200 is not to bad of a price.

    I can bet we see Woz wearing one of these at some point *LOL* Probably running a Nixie clock app to make it appear all the geekier!

    That's pretty sweet! I wonder if the $200 price is the price with a phone plan.
