Gadget unicorn sightings
Just yesterday, while at the train station in a small NJ town I saw someone with a Galaxy Gear. I felt bad because I kept staring at the person's wrist, but I have literally never seen one ever outside of pictures or videos.
My only other experience with this was while I was in Austin in 2012 and saw a Lytro camera. Now granted this was during SXSW, but at that point the Lytro cameras were still generating a ton of hype. To this day I still have not see any other Lytro cameras while I've been out.
So, have you had a sighting of your own? What is that one gadget you've seen someone using that you thought no one bought?
That being said, I remember seeing someone once with a Dell Streak 5. This thing was a 5 inch 'tablet' that could make calls! It was going to be such a great productive device with that big screen!
It turned out to be a turd, and before its time. Android froyo wasn't ready for 5 inch displays and the world wasn't ready for such a 'huge' phone.
4 years later things have completely changed of course, but I do remember the person who owned the Dell Streak
My uncle gave me a leather coin purse from Peru and it was the perfect case; even had a small pocket that fit an extra game perfectly.
It was supposed to be BlackBerry's answer to the iPhone but it was a resistive touch screen that felt archaic compared to iPhone's compacitive touch screen. Also as you might imagine the app selection just wasn't there.
