Sad to see Pebble go

I only caught up on this news last night. It seems Pebble, maker of the super-useful and low-cost smart-watches, is gone. It's been bought by Fitbit and will no longer sell its watches. Although I'm an Apple Watch user, I've owned a Pebble in the past. I loved it - the battery lasted for days ...

The Pebble cometh

I've finally gone for it and ordered a Pebble smart-watch. I got a very generous Amazon gift card (among other lovely goodies) from my colleagues when I left my job a couple of weeks ago and it's been burning a virtual hole in my virtual pocket ever since. The Pebble was on my "someday / ...
