    Interesting observation. If you look at our own eco-system, nature rarely provides for overlapping functions. Thinking on the same lines it may just be part of a evolutionary process – where the fittest will survive. Although, it may leave us with some bare-minimum standards (e.g. GPS positioning, Auto-backups, remote-wipes etc.) – many of them were unheard of in the previous versions of the same product.

    Pebble, in my mind, is a subjective opinion. There’s an increasing number of people who have stopped wearing watches. As Ken Robinson put in his TED talk (quoting his daughter) the aversion to mono-function devices. People currently wear watches, partly out of habit and partly due to lack of an alternative (until recently).

    Think of it this way, your brain needs to know the time (not your eyes). Time could be communicated by many different means, it’s just that a display on the wrist seems to be the most convenient (at this point) – watches themselves may disappear as a category (the way we know them) in few years – just how film did.

    Technology is not only disruptive, in the sense you mentioned, but also, IMHO, aggressive. It tries to transgress turfs instead of discovering new turfs.

    I believe there are newer ways to put our energies on resolving some fundamental problems instead of thinking that others’ commercial success can be reaped for easy bucks, always.

    Sakshi the views that you have addressed is a very valid one and which something people are forgetting in today’s world. Technology was supposed to ease our lives and help us make more time for ourselves, friends and family but exactly the opposite seems to be the case. Technology has instead increased the level of stress in people and the effect is so subtle that people fail to notice it. Although the concept of technology in the context seems to be a nice idea but i doubt if it’s going to be of any help. for ex : this pebble which can control your average cell phone can go on to become an extra indispensable accessory to cell phones in the future thereby adding one more piece of junk to a long list that we already carry. I feel something revolutionary should come along that can well and truly replace todays technology.
