    The video above is a bit cheesy, but what it represents could be pretty exciting news if you happen to live in Silicon Valley and enjoy comic books (and/or comic book movies). The incomparable Steve Wozniak (former executive and the co-founder of Apple) and the comic book master himself, Stan Lee, are teaming up to bring a brand new Comic Con to Silicon Valley!

    The event will be held on March 19 and 20, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center. The SVCC plans to invite a number of Hollywood celebrities and tech leaders across multiple media, including movies, TV, music, gaming, electronics, apps and emerging technologies. Now I wish I lived in Silicon Valley!

    Thanks for the tip, @cr6!

    Real cheesy, but with these two guys at the helm, it should be a pretty awesome event.
    That watch the Woz was wearing was huge! [​IMG] Doesn't look like any smartwatch I've ever seen. Anyone have any idea what that is? It looks like you could flip open the top and pack your lunch in that thing.

    It's the Nixie Watch. It has a couple of vacuum tubes in it.

    I looked on their website. It was so bad that I cannot post a link here. It looks like a Web page from the old Netscape eras lol

    Wow, you weren't kidding! Perhaps the Woz, (who typically loves all things high tech), was sending a message of some sort by wearing a watch like this in his video to promote this event? I can't help but think there's some sort of hidden message here.
    That or "The Woz" is now "The Was"?

    just a nit to pick, but he is not a "former co-founder" -- he's always a co-founder, even if he's no longer with the company. :)

    I think what he's saying is.

    I've got $495+ shipping to spend on a watch made with outdated hardware....
