re: Samsung Preps Galaxy Smartwatch
I agree with both of you! The ONLY use I can personally see myself having for a smartwatch is when I go for a run in the park. I hate taking my smartphone because it is too heavy and bulky. If they add music playing capabilities, then I think there would at least be some value for me, and I wouldn't have to worry about missing a call when I am out in the park. That said, that feature still wouldn't compel me to drop money on it.

It will browse the Web, huh? The interface better be very clever for that to be worthwhile.

I agree with Tom. No one has explained to me why a smartwatch is better than my iPhone, which even has a waterproof case. I can see a watch getting splashed on, rained on etc. Also will it look as ahem, glamorous as the early Blackberry-on-a-belt look?

re: Samsung Preps Galaxy Smartwatch
I remain baffled by the value proposition of smart watches for people who already have smartphones.

re: Samsung Preps Galaxy Smartwatch
The "Octa"-core naming is misleading. It functions as two, four-core processors that cannot be used at the same time. One is low power and one is high power. It's effectively a four-core processor. The "eight-core" design is merely how they implemented power management for their four-core processor.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
