"Earlier this week, IBM unveiled details about a fascinating research project taking place at IBM's research labs: a Linux-based wrist watch...."

"This morning, I spoke with Alex Morrow, "IBM Fellow" at IBM's TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, and project leader of the IBM Linux Wrist Watch project. My goal was to learn about the project's overall mission and goals, and also to gather technical specifics about the device itself, from a hardware, software, and systems design perspective."
