This should be a BLAST. Close to home. Music that we probably are somewhat familiar with.

Cambridge Revels never disappoints. That is a part of their charter. That is why we make the 2-hour pilgrimage, each December, snow or shine, to catch their show.

Tickets, for us plebs, as of October 20.

Just giving you a heads up. It is OK, you don’t have to thank me. SMILE.

A Google Pixel Smartwatch Can Change Everything, But Doesn’t Make Sense — Better To Just Buy Fitbit.

by Anura Guruge




Yes, rumors of a bona fide Google Pixel smartwatch — obviously running ‘Wear OS‘ (i.e., Android for watches) — are again on the rise. This time though they might be close to the mark. Based on a patent that Google filed, there is also an expectation that this watch might sport a ‘hidden’ camera. Yes, you can get watches with cameras now, but Google, with its Pixel phones, have shown that they know how to implement a real ‘nice’ camera. A good camera, in a watch, can be a gamechanger and get a LOT of folks into a lot of hot water! Just think of what you could take pictures or film without folks having a clue what you are doing! Frightening.

Even a semi-decent Pixel watch from Google, without a camera, would be quite an event. Cause quite the stir. Heavy Android users that want primarily a smartwatch — as opposed to a activity/health tracker à la a Garmin Fenix — would have no choice to look at it. But, then you have the Samsung watches that a pretty good on both front — ‘smart’ & fitness.

It has been widely and credibly reported that Fitbit THE COMPANY is for sale and yes, Google has been mentioned as a prospective buyer. That would make sense, BUT Fitbit does not run Wear OS. And that is Google’s dilemma. Fitbit has the hardware, experience and most importantly a huge, loyal customer base. Google has the money. They could plough large sums of money into porting Wear OS to Fitbit. To I that would be what makes most sense.

But, from what I see we will not have to wait too long. IF there is to be a Pixel watch announcement, it will be within the next few weeks. Fingers crossed.

You can’t escape it. It is everywhere and all over. There is an abundance, bordering on superfluous. Yes, I am blasé though I try not to be and make a point of stopping to smell the roses and take a picture or a dozen. Well, that fact that I take this many pictures is proof alone that I do appreciate it. Well, I spend more time outside, walking, in the woods, than most. So, I do get to see a lot. I am not complaining. Soon it will be all gone. I know that.
