Unlike a smartwatch, A high-quality traditional watch doesn't need to be recharged on a daily basis. Also, it will likely be perfectly useful decades after its purchase, while a smartwatch isn't likely to endure the tests of time very well. But can you change a classic watch's face? Nope, we don't think so.
The ability to personalize an Android Wear smartwatch is cool indeed, and the collection of third-party watch faces available at the Play Store is growing steadily. Some are functional and feature-packed, others aim to deliver the best visual experience. The 10 Android Wear watch face packs we have below belong to the latter category. Check them out!
The Asus ZenWatch is a surprise. It is comfortable, looks great and works well. The heart rate monitor is well suited to infrequent checks, and the screen is bright and can be clearly read in sunlight.
Having to charge it at least every two days is a drag, but almost every other smartwatch short of the Pebble suffers from the same drawback.
The always-on ambient display mode using the OLED screen makes it a very good watch for actually telling the time, which others have neglected.
Overall, the ZenWatch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches available and a solid contender for the incoming Apple Watch.

gnupong and yapong: One bad, one … better
If that looks pretty weak to you, it is. This is more a one-person variation on the original Pong than a clever imitation at the console. And given that it has an upright orientation over a horizontal one, it has more of a feel of Arkanoid than Pong proper.

Remix' Big 11.6" Android Tablet With A Full Keyboard And Multi-Window Enabled OS Reaches Its $100K Kickstarter Goal In A Day
This isn't your typical Kickstarter. Jeremy Chau, one of the company's co-founders, states it clearly from the get-go in the campaign's introductory video. Remix isn't a bunch of over-promised under-delivered hogwash that may get stuck for years in the development and manufacturing process like 90% of Kickstarter products — it is a real tablet, it was demo'ed at CES, and it's already being sold in China.
As I noted at the beginning of this year, open source has won, even if it's not finished. That's easy to show at the top end, since Linux currently runs 485 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world. But at the other end of the spectrum, data has been harder to come by. That makes a new post on Linux.com reporting on the embedded sector particularly welcome. Here's the key finding.
Installed it on my Mint (Virtual box), with make command I managed to install it. But it seems to only work in terminal or something I am confused. I'd like a shortcut on desktop and GUI like I have on Windows.
Sorry if it's super dumb.
