I’ve been a fan of smart watches since Microsoft launched Smart Personal Object Technology (SPOT) watches back in 2004. Do you remember Spot? The now defunct service used FM radio signals to broadcast information to your wristwatch.

The service once activated could send content to your smart watch including weather, news, stocks, calendar, sports, horoscopes, lottery results as well as downloadable watch faces. You could also have text messages sent to your watch via MSN Messenger.

Enter Pebble, which was introduced in a Kickstarter project as the first watch built for the 21st century. Pebble promises to be what SPOT could only dream of. Pebble connects by Bluetooth to an iPhone or Android device. Pebble will have an app market that will feature downloadable watch faces and a host of internet-connected apps.

I don’t usually start a product review with a recommendation, but in the case of GrowlVoice for Mac, I’m going to make an exception. If you have a Google Voice account and a Mac do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of GrowlVoice.

The $4.99 application developed by Eric Horacek, is one of my favorite and most used Mac utilities. The excellent Google voice client lets you send and receive texts right from the Mac menu bar quickly and easily.

The threaded text replies makes it extremely easy to view and respond to recent messages in your Google Voice inbox again from the convenience of your Mac menu bar.
