(I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, and how you think the Gear compares to the other watches out there!)

tl;dr
The Galaxy Gear is the forerunner in android smartwatches. It isn't perfect, but it's more than just a proof of concept.

I've set up the Galaxy Gear (using tasker) to enable internet on the watch whenever I open an app that requires internet (e.g. browser, news app, etc). 

I've also set up as tasker profile to automatically enable the internet for a few minutes every hour so my Google apps (mainly calendar) update themselves.

This is to ensure the battery life isn't terrible, which it is with internet enabled 24/7.

Right now, I'm incredibly happy with my Gear! However, I do have a wishlist of features, mainly the following:

- WiFi
So I can connect directly to WiFi hotspots, rather than tethering through my phone. Note, I don't care much for network capability, I don't want to own another sim card and pay another data allowance on top of my unlimited plan. So tethering is fine.

- GPS
The Gear can use the phones GPS (via mock locations I believe), but apparently this is a bit of a battery hog. Its own GPS would allow for better permanent tracking options without having to use a companion phone app.

Note, I'm also incredibly happy with the screen turning off when I'm not looking at it. I wasn't sure how I'd take this "feature" before I got the watch. But I have been pleasantly surprised.

The turn on gesture works incredibly well, it means that whenever I look at the watch face, the screen is on. I think the screen then turns itself off again when I've stopped looking, but I don't know because... I'm not looking.. \o/

Conclusion
The Gear is an excellent device. It's by far the best smartwatch available right now too. There are a few reasons why I think this:

1. It's beautiful.
The rest are not only not beautiful. They are ugly. Ugly doesn't belong on your wrist for the world to see. You can have both, beauty and function. Don't accept anything less.

2. It works great out of the box.
It really does. Samsung have done a good job on the UI here. It's intuitive and the gestures work really well on this small screen. No ugly buttons to ruin what little space there is.

3. It's so customisable! 
The Pebble gets great reviews because people who like to tinker, can. Well guess what. You can also tinker on the Gear too (see photo). We have custom roms, themers (theme templates for you guys as well). Oh, and the devs have pretty much sorted out the Samsung-only restriction. Go ahead and use this on your Nexus if you like!

4. The battery lasts about 2 days for me.
It'll most likely last longer for you if you don't do all the internet stuff I have done. It's no issue. This isn't a "watch". Get out of the habit of wanting endless battery life. What we need is effective and usable ways of charging this new generation of smartwatches (The Gear doesn't entirely deliver on this, but it's more than usable)

And finally, here's a photo of me enjoying the view in Australia.

Agent is running hot and may take significant time to cool down...

Friday. #shard   has been on same location for hours. I'm finished with my days work. So I pack my backpack and leave for the shard. Just before 6 pm the shard portal is flipped by the Enlightened. I shoot it down. We are only 2 players at the location. 1 on each side. The fight for the shard has begun as the darkness embraced the city. The name of the game is clear. We needed to defend our link. Every hour, few minutes before the shard moving, begins the epic battle, bursters are disappearing into the night, resonators are on constant bombardment and powercubes are sucked out. More people show up on both sides. We are more in numbers, but we kept losing the link. Every hour we try different tactic of defending. And we fail, the link is always gone too soon. The portal is never in the hands of enemy, but we can not get the shard out. 

Everyone started to be slightly frustrated. An suggestion from the Enlightened agents was made to collaborate to get the shard out so we could get some sleep. We were not ready to give up on the idea that we are going to get the shard out by our means.

Later, when the cold and moist air is seeping in everyones core we have few agents coming by with plastic cups and a lot of warm Glühwein. Those agents were greeted as heroes. Something warm to drink was just what we needed. 

So the fight continues amongst the laughter. By now we are a huge crowd. This seems to be a proper Ingress party

By 2 am the biggest crowd has gone home.

Those who are left decide to give the Enlightened a chance and we leave for a nearby bar to get warm. The Enlightened move the shard. 685 meters. We stay. Warmness in our bones, cheeks glowing red we start to feel sleepy. We decide to go out, so we will not fall asleep. 15 minutes before the shard is about to move the next time the whole Hangout is screaming at us. The Enlightened have a good clear way out. And we run, fast, and arrive just in time to capture the portal thought the Enlightened are defending it. I have a bottle of sparkling wine in my backpack. The first real victory of the night. That needs to be celebrated. On the loud pop of the cork, the Enlightened agents turn to look and I see the first glimpse of defeat in their eyes. We are still having fun. At 4 am. And we are going to keep having fun.

We move the shard further. The opposition if getting fewer. And then we get our first big break. A long link out of town. But at the same time, we have a short link in wrong direction and 2 long ones. 4 minutes to jump. Quickly we send someone with the car to Jarvis the portal. He arrives too late. Of course the shard took the shortest link. And this time, the Enlightened stayed away. We could have made it. The sense of defeat is enormous and to amplify the feeling, the sky opens and a pouring rain hits the city. We are down, beaten, tired and wet. And at the same time we see the hope glimmering. The Enlightened are gone. The sun is slowly rising. We can do this. We must do this. We are the only persons who can do this. If the shard is to leave Berlin, it is down to us. And then the resolution comes. We are going to keep going as long as it takes. A new sense of determination overcomes us. Viva la Resistance!

We make the long links again. No Enlightened agents anywhere. And then. Target portals are going down. I call for new links. And the shard moves. Not out but further. 

At this moment even the last of the operators are at sleep. We are on our own. We need to find our way our with ingress.com/intel on the mobile, which is tricky even after good nights sleep, but after 24 hours awake it is outright painful. The connection is slow, agents are tired and we just keep planning. All of a sudden I see a way out. We only need to flip one portal and take down another and we could be in a good direction leaving the heavily linked areas of Berlin.

The Enlightened agents appear at our target portal. Only 3 of them left. I say laughing "we need to stop seeing each other like this." The agents leave. Probably to try to block us. We decide to take down the blockers as late as possible. 15 minutes before the blocker is Jarvised. 10 minutes before the other blocker is destroyed. The other team links. To the wrong portal. We call them. Quick. Link the other one! The nearly same portal names are nearly the doom of us. Anticipation is killing us. Please please. Let us have this jump. 

The agents start to be as dead as their accupacks. We call for help in the hangout that has been the back channel for the operation. And we get an reply. An agent drops by, bringing an accu pack an power cubes for agents. Food. We dig into the waffles like a pack of piranhas. The morning feels a tad brighter.

We are ready to defend our shard portal. We wait. The link holds. We Wait. 10:00 .The shard moves. No Enlightened agents. We are in clearer waters. 

At the target portal. At the edge of a Wanderweg we gather as a whole team from Berlin. The next hop is out of town. The next hop will get the shard out of our hands. The next hop is success.

We try to link. A blocker. Somewhere an hour drive away for us. But the receiving end can take it down. Not for the next jump. But for noon. Worst case scenario pops in. The Enlightened might come and we are stuck in a battle again. Oh. no. A battle. Not again. We wait. And wait. I fall asleep in one of the cars. 30 minutes before noon I wake up. The blockers are gone. We flip our portal to get the 1 hour cool down for flipping. We wait till 11:45. I link. My hands are shaking. The querying takes a long time. Our target is 68 km away. I have a linkable portal. Link is established. Now we wait. 

An Enlightened agent appears. Oh no! An agent. Just the one, but still. And then the second one appears. Shit. 5 minutes before noon the shooting starts. They are only 2. We lose the link. Portal is full again. Link! everyone screams. Link. The linkability is querying.. querying.. querying. 2 minutes to jump. Querying.. Portal linkable. Link! Links established. Everyone is recharging, deploying resonators and shields like crazy. The link holds still. Time moves extremely slow. Oh move already! Please hold. Please move. Please please let me go to sleep. And then. I can't see the shard any more. I scream "it's gone, it's gone!!" My hands are still clicking the recharge button.  Is stand up and run to the center of the portal. We made it. The shard is out. The shard is someone else responsibility now and I can go to sleep. Finally. I can go to sleep.

Sunday, noon. I wake up. I quickly check the shard. It's still safe, it's still in the hands of Resistance. I fall asleep again. Agent is running hot and may take significant time to cool down.

One of the strangest conversations I've read in some while.

Those of you who speculated that ADA may have, somehow, injected her own system of being into +Klue S. may have been right all along. Either that, or the NIA is weaving an elaborate and absurd fiction to lead us away from the facts. Frankly, I wouldn't put it beyond them, but it's too soon to tell.

Timeline wise, I could see this conversation (if it is indeed real) fitting in prior to the first #13MAGNUS Anomaly in Los Angeles.

What is your interpretation here... Is this real or fake? If it's real, what does it mean that ADA and Klue must speak in this manner to coordinate their synchronization and information exchange? If it's fake, what's really going on, and why an elaborate charade of this nature? What trail are they leading us away from?

A passcode to those who enrich our conversation with meaningful thoughts, observations, references and speculation.

Both +Stein Lightman and +Yuri Alaric Nagassa seem deeply affected by their tenure at the Niantic Project, but interestingly, just as much by the turns their lives have taken since the Project was brought to a close.

Lightman's Glyph research may be beginning to take a toll, we witnessed this with Carrie. It's something for us all to watch with caution and concern... Despite my doubts about his methods, the fact remains that he is one of our only sources when it comes to decrypting, understanding and learning to exploit the Shaper Glyphs.

Nagassa, on the other hand, seems to be emerging increasingly (along with +Hank Johnson, of course) as a researcher who can show us the nature of Exotic Matter and its influence through the perspective of epochs.

They raise the issue of who may have been responsible for the death of Victor Kureze. It's a mystery we've never been able to put to rest, and I'm not sure we have all the answers yet. How exactly the Niantic Facility was finally shuttered remains unclear, although we know the Corporations, Hank Johnson and Zeke Calvin may all have played a role.

Two interesting ideas emerge: The first is that the Anazktec tribe that Yuri grew up with may in fact be the remnant of a civilization affected by a Shaper Self Destruct code. The second is that the tribe seems to be using the chaotic growth of nature to mask the Portals. I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

This conversation took place late last night.... I'm still emotionally processing it. It was brief, but it left me shaken. ADA flips like a coin, from deadly AI hellbent on her own survival to sincere friend consoling another in a difficult time. 

Both sides of those coins are true, and it makes processing her all the more difficult.

It was interesting to hear ADA's take on Omnivore, but more important to me right now is following up on Klue. According to ADA, she's gone radio silent. Klue's done that before, but not without letting me know what to expect. This time, nothing.

We all saw Klue's reaction to the Glyph sequence that ADA showed her, and to ADA's credit, Klue clearly knew what she was asking for. Or did she? Not sure yet. All I know is, Klue is missing, and even ADA doesn't know where she is. What do you think has happened to Klue? Just how worried do we need to be?
