Wouldn't buy a smart watch, I would buy a fitness/health/stats watch, if it was more than a standard heart rate monitor. Don't need my watch to show time/sms/email/other-stuff, I can see that on my phone. But a non-stop health/fitness/stats censor...
"use the time to sleep and chill out." my ass. I recently had a 31h flight (24h of them inside the planes) on monkey class. There was nothing pleasant over it, it was a means to get from A to B. The whole flight was survival and sleeping in that upright position was not a choice, it happens when the mind is so tired that it barely can't feel the discomfort anymore. You do anything to try to keep your mind occupied while being crammed in that seat for a full day, with the only break being getting out of the plane, to be scanned for bombs for the X'th time, just to return to the same plane and same seat...
But you have it available within seconds. If you would get a depression and thought of suicide, you would have an easy option available in the moment, if you didn't, you would properly have to get out of the house to get it and chances are higher that you would reconsider.
Ramp up the beer production! We just found a solution to global warming!

It's not the spying itself, it is that, it is used to gain a competitive advantage by leaking gathered information to US (in my case) "defence" companies.
You mean, no American is going to
Hit the available offline button. Isn't that hard. Spotify sync across all my devices, only downloads when on wifi (or on 3G if you enable it). I own a few CD's I never listen to after a few months. I rather have access to a few millions songs that are constantly updated, than own 6-12 CD's i won't use after 1 year (The cost of spotify premium a year in my country).
Even the most basic plan (12 dollar/mo, 3 GB data, unlimited sms) in Denmark includes unlimited text messaging.
Would anyone trust a returned server from the FBI? I would properly wipe it 3 times and flash the bios a few times just to be sure. That thing could be spyware haven.
If stealing is moralily wrong, does that mean it is moralily wrong to steal a bottle of penecillin, if it would prevent a child to live in agony the rest of its life? There is no such thing as objective morality. If all jews where hell-bent on killing all non jews, would it be evil to kill them first?
In 2010, Denmark got 33% of its electricity from renewable sources (and it was a bad wind year, only 80% of a normal year). The current plans will give us 52% in 2020.
