"IBM said Monday that researchers are running the Linux
operating system on a prototype wristwatch device, in a test
designed to show that Linux can be used as the basic software on
the smallest devices."
"Designed to communicate wirelessly with PCs, cell phones and
other wireless-enabled devices, the 'smart watch' will have the
ability to view condensed email messages and directly receive
pager-like messages," IBM said."
"However, IBM (stock: IBM) does not have plans to commercialize
the Linux watch itself, a spokeswoman said."
