That why I find myself nodding in agreement with my colleague Harry McCracken, who wrote that the smartwatches of today aren readyto become breakout hits. Battery life is too short, the designs are a little too clunky, and it not really clear why everyone needs a smartwatch to begin with. Pebble main purpose is to keep you constantly aware of incoming messages and notifications, but for a lot of people that could be more of a burden than a boon..
The weekend starts super cold with more subzero temps to get going Saturday around Metro Detroit. In fact, this will be the coldest number we see during this Arctic Chill with clear skies and light winds to start the day. Be careful!

For many journalists, the 2016 campaign was the story of a lifetime. And it was indeed the story of a lifetime for me, too, but a story with real life repercussions. We grew up in a mostly Democratic county. “My plan,” wrote Jesse Osborne, who had turned 14 three weeks earlier, “is shooting my dad getting his keys getting in his truck, driving to the elementary school 4mins away, once there gear up, shoot out the bottom school class room windows, enter the building, shoot the first class which will be the 2d grade, grab teachers keys so I don’t have to hasle to get through any doors.”He had been researching other school shooters for months and, determined to outdo them, learned exactly how many people they’d murdered: 13 at Columbine High; 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary; 32 at Virginia Tech.”I think ill probably most likely kill around 50 or 60,” Jesse declared. “If I get lucky maybe 150.”On Valentine’s Day, at the same time police say another angry teen, Nikolas Cruz, slaughtered 17 people at a Parkland, Fla., high school with a semiautomatic AR 15, Jesse was sitting in a South Carolina courtroom, waiting to find out whether he would be tried as an adult for a 2016 rampage that left his father and a 6 year old dead.The two teens have much in common. Both, investigators say, tortured animals, obsessed over guns and bragged of their deadly intentions on social media.
Do I think that 1940s America has more advanced nuclear bomb technology than modern japan? Yes I do. Does that mean that 1940s America had more advanced technology in every other respect? No, of course not. And if you’re suggesting that it’s natural to jump from that conclusion to the conclusion that it is acceptable to mistreat modern japan then the problem, frankly, is with your worldview, not my conclusion.
