Impression of the Android Wear Platform

Image
Had the Moto 360 for the past few days and it is a brilliant little device. There are lots of reviews out on the internet so it is pretty much pointless to write a review on it. This post is more about the Android Wear Platform and what things I want to see happening on both the hardware and software side to make it more of a mainstream product because currently in this form it is very much a beta piece of kit.

But before I talk about this, one thing I have notice is on my Moto 360 is that the time goes out of sync whenever it has been disconnected from its phone. It only happens when the two devices goes out of range and disconnects, not when you deliberately disconnect the device. It does eventually sync back up but this should not be happening on a watch which primarily purpose is to tell the time. This has got to be fixed.

I hardly use Facebook because I found it a bit annoying and seeing too many uninteresting topics on family and friends. Twitter I like for real time news, but Google+ I always seem to use but I just could not put my finger on why. I think Mike Elgan nailed it. You get to see articles which are carefully constructed and you see the effort put in by its creators which makes you come back for more. Mike Elgan articulate it brilliantly. A must read!

Why Google+ is the place for passions

The single biggest controversy about social media, and one that has persisted for two or three years now without resolution, is whether Google+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity, or a hive of conversation and engagement.

It can't be both. So which is it? And why can't this fundamental question be answered?

I believe I have the key to the puzzle, and I'll attempt to sol…
