Episode 64: Do you want to wear a computer?

We discuss wearable computing from watches to glasses. Now you can finally look like an X-Men team member or Robocop.

Do you want to wear a computer on your body? Jeremy and I discuss how these wearable computing devices could fit into a smartphone world. We don’t see them replacing phones any time soon.

We also discuss the PlayStation 4 failure to launch. So, there’s that.
