The new <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/pebble-steel/">Pebble Steel</a> watch is not all that's new about the Pebble: there's a new app store, too, which any Pebble owner -- original or Steel -- can use.

You can make pasta, find a recipe, and electrocute a burglar at the same time? I'm pretty sure there's a perfect use for this thing...a Potfecta. Let us know if you find it. </p>
