Rumor Has It: Google jumps aboard the smartwatch train

Google seems to be feeling left out of the smartwatch revolution. Also this week, the next-gen Xbox continues to blow Karyne's mind, a $99 Kindle Fire is probably not on the horizon, and Google Play tweaks make co-host Lynn La feel warm and fuzzy inside.

The smartwatch bandwagon

Is Google planning a smartwatch of its own?

Another day, another smartwatch rumor. This time, it's Google that was feeling left out , what with all the "iWatch" rumors and Samsung throwing its hat into the ring. What do you think about Google's rumor smartwatch? What do you think would make it different from the plethora of other smartwatches that are out there? Leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Also on this week's show, the next-gen Xbox might not use its optical drive for games, according to leaked documents . At least it'll play Blu-ray (maybe)! Google Play might be getting a new UI , which is very exciting for some people, but definitely not exciting for most others. And a $99 Kindle Fire is probably not going to be happening any time soon. At all.

Thanks for watching!
