I wonder if Ampere knows that their name conflicts with a prior Ampere? (I have two Ampere laptops in my house :)

Re: AS/400 "still kicking". I've always liked the AS/400, as well as the HP 3000.
Although not being made any more, the HP 3000 (er, "HP e3000") is still running in thousands of sites. Stromasys has an emulator for it, so it might outlast the original PA-RISC hardware :)
We have one customer who has over 2,000 sessions logged into their HP 3000 every day ...
not bad for 16 year old hardware!
It's a plausible weight-loss. Over the short term, water loss can account for a lot of that.
However, with a medically supervised [and mostly liquid] diet, it's not surprising to lose
1/2 lb per day for long periods of time (e.g., I've seen a friend go from 300+ to 150 in one year, just on the HMR medically supervised diet).
Back to watches ... the roundup sure missed a lot of smart watches, unfortunately.
I'd like to see info about Android-running watches (not merely watches that *talk to* Android systems) ... since I've had DOS and Palm watches, I'm a long-time believer in wearing a watch I can write code for :)
Also missing: Kreyos, and Buddy Bluetooth watch (I've tried both, not greatly impressed by either)
