    LOL

    I'm 38 and brought up in a world of Dick Tracy, Inspector Gadget, Transformers and GI Joe. I have been waiting my entire life to be able to use my watch as a communication device and I think it only fitting that the first thing I say into my watch when I make my first call should be "CALLING ALL CARS!"

    It's from Dick Tracy for those who don't know, the original smart watch user!

    Ain't technology great!

    I wanted the Dick Tracy watch that was on the back of the Life cereal when the movie came out. I'm happy to know I won't be the only one doing this :)

    I tried to convince my parents that I would trade 3 Christmas' of gifts for one with a TV Watch I saw at Sears. It was black and white and required you to be tethered to a big box but it let you watch local over the air shows on your wrist. Now here we are but I don't plan to use mine for TV. I have an iPad for this. Ah well.

    Don't you think "Beam me up!" would be equally appropriate?

    On the phone that only gets me "We're having a wee bit o' trouble". I hope that's fixed on the watch... ;)

    Reply: "I'd rather stick with Siri."
