Why is no one interested in making Android Wear smartwatches?

Last year, Google announced Android Wear, an operating system for smartwatches and other wearable gadgets.

Microsoft will go where the users are if they won’t come to it

Ever since taking the baton from Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has been unswervingly peddling the company’s new “mobile-first, cloud first” strategy. Late last year he shed more light on it, asserting that these are the two areas where the world is going. It’s an interesting statement.

And the cheapest MacBook one can get starts from upwards of Rs 60,000. More →
