A blog FOR Laptop Ninjas, not about them.
A Laptop Ninja is a cousin of the more common Web Ronin. As a solitary figure who's skills with computer technology and design, the Laptop Ninja survives by performing contract work from cafes, public parks, and sometimes rooftops. The Laptop Ninja's sword is his 802.11 connection, his iPod his throwing stars, and his Bluetooth cellphone his Nunchucks. All of which are usually carried in a discreet messenger bag.

It Tells Time, It's Got Bluetooth, What's Not to Love?
This new watch
might look just like another stylish timepiece, but wait! There's more! Through the magic of Bluetooth, it integrates with your phone to serve as a display. What's the point of wireless if you have to dig through your bag every time your phone rings to pull it out to see if you want to answer? In fact, with this watch you may never need to take your phone out again provided you 1) own a bluetooth headset, and 2) don't mind looking like an idiot (bluetooth headsets are so lame anywhere but the privacy of your car or home).
There's also a video in Japanese here. The biggest question is, why the hell did they choose a woman with obviously tiny wrists to model it? On her it just looks like a piece phone tied to her wrist with a strip of leather.
Once this thing is a reasonable size and can be set to vibrate, I'm getting out the Visa.
