David: I think perhaps you meant one of these OPs? Speaking of Rolex and the Apple watch: I sat through the entire presentation, and either I've been totally brainwashed, or I've come to the conclusion that Apple has done for the smart watch what Rolex has done for the mechanical wristwatch – and they've done it in a considerably shorter period of time. Whether the smart watch itself as a concept is doable now given limitations in battery technology is another issue...
I'm thinking someone will make an accessory that will allow attachment of a conventional watch strap or bracelet. The smaller version could be integrated into the bracelet of an existing watch, or made into a buckle.That said, it's a phone remote. It needs to be thought of as like a remote PTT on a walkie-talkie.

Although mainly about Aldrich Ames, it does a good job of placing his story within the context of many of the CIA's other intelligence failures of the period. It even had a tearjerker ending. I'm actually pretty shocked that American...

It was a nice summery day today, in a not so summery city, so I decided to go minimal today. This one has a more interesting history than anything else.
Was just in the Wristwatch thread and this happened:       All controls get blocked apart from the OK button on the scam dialog. You have to quit and restart, and QUICKLY close the tab before the dialog appears again to get out of it.
RIP. His Kilin chair is quite possibly the best iteration of the Spanish sling chair. Still available from the original manufacturer, and at a reasonable price.
