When will we be able to pin it on our shirts, and just tap it to initiate communications?

Yeah, I heard the rumour yesterday in Silicon Valley (right across the Apple headquarters, as a matter of fact.) The as yet unconfirmed part of it is that it will even show... time!

Obama has already spit on Christians with his health care bill. He wouldn’t blink an eye at forcing people to wear these or some other government gadget.

You won't be required to wear it. You only will need it to buy or sell...

Sheesh. Please tell me you’re joking. You *do* understand the “wrist” and “forehead” reference, right? Our actions and thoughts, how we’re to submit them to God’s word rather than to the way of the world ...

Silly Apple. Late to the party.

Or the CHEAP one that I'm ordering after the holidays.

The prices go from less than $10 to as much as you care to spend. The more expensive look better and even have GPS as well as cell phone, Android tablet functions, bluetooth and more.

I'm getting one similar to the second picture. If it works as well as they do in YouTube videos I'm buying a bunch for the rest of the family as second phones. The are pay as you go on T-Mobile or AT&T.

If it's on mrs p6's wrist she can't loose it!

Last night I downloaded Horror Hotel to my iPhone 5 while I slept. I am going to watch it next time I am babysitting.

I could probably go for something like this if it has internet access and some expansion capability. I’ve seen more than enough lost, dropped and broken cell phones and IPODs to interest me all that much in them.
