I don't have an Apple Watch around my wrist. Lets get that fact out of the way right this minute, since every other technology blogger in the universe seems - I emphasize SEEMS - to have one today on "launch day." The Apple Watch, like the iPhone and to a slightly lesser extend the iPad, is a herald of something greater. A new community, and a new way of computing.

Why I’m Breaking Down and Buying an Apple Watch

I’ve gone back and forth over the last several weeks trying to decide whether an Apple Watch was for me.

The emoji you’ve been waiting for: on Android Wear

Those smartwatch owners jealous of their yet-unworn opponent watches with emoji can rest easy. Emoji replies to messages are here for Android Wear devices. Thank goodness, you must be thinking.

Unless you're Katy Perry, of course. Or if you're one of the lucky few Apple employees who have the Apple Watch already - they can wear it out of the store - but not you.
