Re: You can Eat ALL You Want
Nomi, what I meant was that I don't need a wearable to tell me to eat ice-cream because I can eat all the ice-cream by myself. It was a joke based on the cartoon. :D Seriously speaking, and responding to your question, I think everything depends on the wearable we are talking about and what use people will give to them. I don't think wearables are a luxury. Like pretty much everything else, you can find a wide range of tai prices to satisfy different markets. As for usefulness, you might find something unuseful which someone else finds useful. There are many factors to this and it all depends on the person. Wearables have proven to be great in healthcare and will become even better in the next few years. -Susan

I don't need a wearable to tell me to eat all the ice-cream. I can do that all by myself, and be happy about it. :D -Susan
