The main issue is that any watch over $200 is expected to last 10-20+ years. A smart watch is designed to last 1-2 years. I bought a nice citizen watch 10 years ago, and it still works and expect it to last another 10-20 years. If I go for a smart watch of the same price, its expected to be tossed after 2-3 years.

Submission + - Google Opensource Project Hosting; End of SF Nigh?

mdm42 writes: "Meandering about the 'net on a slow Sunday morning, I tripped across Google Code's latest addition — Project Hosting. The entry page is a typically Google-sparse "Search Projects", with the slogan "Release Early, Release Often" beneath it. The page for creating a new project only offers the 7 most-widely-accepted opensource licenses.

Seems to me that Google have moved squarely into Sourceforge's turf, here. Does this spell the end of sf.net? (Or am I just late to the party, here?)"
