Nobody wants to say it outright, but the Apple Watch sucks. So do most smartwatches. Every time I use my beautiful Moto 360, its lack of functionality makes me despair. But the problem isn’t our gadgets. It’s that the future of consumer tech isn’t going to come from information devices. It’s going to come from infrastructure.
Visiting folks in Antigua posed a number of problems that knew I of for along time, but have solved differently based on my need for access to the Interwebs. On this trip I couldn’t count on Wifi at certain places, since I was relatively on the go.
Solution : A cheap android with a data plan that I could create I Wifi hotspot(tethering). It came up to $203 ECD ($180 for device; $20 for voice; $13 for 1GB/24 hours for data). About $75 USD.
