    This weekend we enjoyed upset after upset as we watched our brackets disintegrate as underdogs were taking down big boys. In today's edition we will discuss where smart technology is heading.

    1) Wearables: The obvious direction of this discussion is based on this past week's news with wearable technology such as smart watches. If you have not heard Google announced they are creating an OS for smart watches called Android Wear (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/android-news/265587-android-wear.html) and they released the sdk for developers to download and begin software development. The leading manufacturers LG and Motorola (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/an...to-360-live-talk-we-wanted-hit-whoa-mark.html) announced that they plan on having their devices ready for purchase by summer.

    So are any of you planning on spending any money on wearable technology and if so what device or manufacturer would you more likely invest in (Motorola, LG, Samsung, HTC, Apple, etc)?

    2) With devices such as smart contact lenses (Google Patent Application Shows Multi-Sensor Contact Lenses For Wearable Device Input Via Blinks) or Smart light bulbs (LG announces new Smart Bulb | Android Central) is there a point where technology is getting too intrusive (though I like the idea of the smart bulb)?
    3) Wearables took up the bulk of the story this past week but we expect HTC to make its way back to the forefront on the 25th of March (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/an...ive-verizon-may-sell-launch-day-mar-25-a.html). Are any of you picking up a HTC M8 (aka "New One") this week if made available for purchase?
