The one where I realize I'm a huge dork but still want to buy a Wrist.NET watch. Thanks Mike!

You're killing me, Mike! ;) I love these watches and I'll be first in line to get one! I say 2004 is:

The year of the smart personal object: Microsoft's Wrist Net (MSNDirect) watches will launch, introducing SPOT (Smart Personal Objects Technology) to the world. Previous technologies have failed miserably. (Remember the Java Ring?) Since watches are the only piece of personal jewelry that folks will wear consistently (not counting iPods), a smart watch that presents the weather, traffic, instant messages, e-mail, stock quotes, appointments, etc., will be the perfect complement to an increasingly information-cluttered world. For those who can't decide between a PDA, a phone, a Smartphone, or a smart PDA phone, a smart watch for only $179 may be just the ticket. Expect to see lots of .NET Web services pop up around Wrist Net. As a diabetic, I expect to have one that tells my wife my blood sugar level wirelessly ASAP!
