Android Wear for Smartwatches

Wow we have another OS to work on! Good thing is, there is not a great learning curve as it is a flavor of Android. But to design for a a small factor definitely is a challenge.

How we got our iPhone 5S on second day of launch, on a Saturday!!!

iPhone 5S was sold out on the day of launch, a Friday, by noon.

We came back dishartened. Om Malik's blog site came to rescue. News flash: Radio Shack also carries the iPhone. So we tried our luck on Saturday morning.
