spot watchesIt's become semi-fashionable to slag off all those new SPOT wristwatches that use Microsoft's wireless MSN Direct network to receive instant messages, stock quotes, news flashes, weather, etc.  Some of the biggest complaints of all have been about the fact that one of the features promised (and plastered on advertisements everywhere) has been the instant delivery of sports scores to the watches. For whatever reason it's behind schedule, but it's not the only new service that's waiting in the wings. SpotStop reports that Fossil (one of companies making SPOT watches) has accidentally posted a list of the other MSN Direct channels that are coming, including a few that sound fairly useful like local traffic conditions, restaurant listings, movie times, and lottery results.
