    The above is simply an artist's render of a possible Android Smartwatch.

    According to a new trademark filed by Samsung, they are indeed working on wearable computing technology, and they already have a name for it. Previously we have heard numerous rumors that Samsung is working on a new Android based smartwatch. Today, a new trademark filing came to light confirming the device with the name "Samsung Galaxy Gear." Here's a quote from the trademark filing for it,

    It's possible this is a trademark that Samsung is scooping up to hold for the future. However, with all of the rumors floating around about an impending launch of a smartwatch from Samsung, we suspect this will be the name we see when it finally comes to light. In fact, we may see this device launch as soon as September 4th during the IFA 2013 event in Germany. We will keep an eye out!

    Do you really need to lock the device if you are wearing it on your wrist? Some magician is going to do a sleight-of-hand to remove your watch and then hack you bank accounts?

    I like the concept as a fitness device, but am I really going to get a data plan for a watch to track my running? Guess that's the genius of shared data plans (except I'm keeping my unlimited!)

    Look up some videos on sleight-of-hand tricks. I've seen more difficult things accomplished while the guy is having a conversation with multiple people.
