    I like it, and if it means I can finally get that girl then it is worth the outlay ...

    I dunno. I think it's pretty much in keeping with that truly awful kludge he's sporting on his wrist.

    "Wear our watch and you WILL get some..."

    Dear god ... Sad

    I'm guessing Samsung is going for the lonely nerd market.

    Yeah this one is certainly the top of the trash pile heap. What's funny is it's one of the few ads that shows what the product actually does. So either we have cool kids dancing on tables or tools trying to make looking like a nerd cool. Somebody please figure out a balance here. Perplexed

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    1. Ready Bboy360 posts

    2. Make commercial about picking up chicks with tech the way Bboy360 does

    3. Claim credit for yourself.

    That's the way people do it.

     

    The watch is really stupid though.  I don't think chicks will be impressed by it.  I really doubt you can take a good video or pictures with that thing around your wrist.  If you're going to use it like the way he's doing it, it would work better as a necklace pendant.   You also can't get xbox cheevos from that, or show off your gamerscore.

    You could use the watch's API's to push your gamer card from your Cheevos app. You wouldn't even need to pull out your phone.

    The only reason to have a watch is for bling.  Might as well design a headband with an LCD to display your gamer card if that's what you want.  (Ooops, there's another nugget from Bboy, feel free create a Kickstater for this)

    @RealBboy360: Now I'm confused. You don't care about bling? Isn't your gamer score just another form of bling?

    Bling

    noun

    1. expensive and flashy jewelry, clothing, or other possessions.
    2. the flaunting of such possessions or the flashy lifestyle associated with it.
     
    adjective
    3. flashy; ostentatious.
     
    verb (used without object)
    4. to flaunt one's material wealth; live a flashy lifestyle.
     
    verb (used with object)
    5. to dress or adorn in a flashy way: Bling up your wardrobe!

    I guess gamerscore is a form of bling, but it's always good to have as much as you can.  Chicks don't just care about 1 thing, you have to add up all your statistics.  My gamerscore/cheevos doesn't get chicks by itself all the time.

    For example you will see my D&G Tuxedo at the 2013 Cheevies award show.  If I didn't care about bling, I'd just rent one at the mens warehouse

    Given that you get Cheevos for watching on Netflix. Hulu and XBox video your bling is tarnished.

    I had to look up what ACA is. The ad or whatever it is I first thought was a spoof, but it's real, and from the pro Obama supporters. I know that many socialists here hate to see their messiah and their religion fail. Hey, I get that. These are topical recent ads that features young men trying to impress or interact with potential mates. Seems dead on relevant.

    I've had free health care since the 60's. You get what you pay for, I haven't seen a doctor my whole adult live.

    You don't get actual gamerscore for that.  It's just a badge.  Good thinking though, if they did give actual gamerscore it would devalue cheevos.  Well the did devalue the cheevos a little by making arcade games worth 1000 and big games a never ending amount if they want.  But it's like inflation, you just gotta keep moving with the times.

    @RealBboy360: How is having Hannah Montana cheevos on your record not devaluing the rest?

    If you think the ACA or Obamacare or whatever you want to call it is socialism, you really don't have any idea what socialism actually is.

    @Sven Groot: Frankly if you use the word "socialists", "messiah" and "religion" in a discussion like that, you're pretty much disqualifying yourself from the get-go.
