Hey folks, Kevin Sutorius here! Last time I posted, it was a Top 20 movies of 2012, and this time, I thought I’d do something different. I’m a huge technology nerd (“Techno-phile” I dub myself) and I wanted to share a gadget I’m looking forward to: the Pebble Smartwatch. Wait, what’s so smart about a watch? What does is it do? Before we get started, I want to share some history.

Google is very good at many things. Web browsing, email, a wide variety other web services, and perhaps most impressive are apps. Recently Google released something truly awesome, Field Trip. What make this so unique and worthy of my praise you ask?
For starters, people like me who tend to have a general idea of what they want, but also tend to be indecisive, enjoy things that do half the work for us. Field Trip shows you a map of the area and highlights any interesting or historical landmarks including unique architecture, plus any Museums or Art Galleries nearby. When I travel, I often spend hours researching what’s worth visiting in the area, and while it’s easy to find the well-known locations, I prefer the path less traveled. Luckily, Field Trip shows you everything! I mean everything!
Some of you avid listeners may know that I myself am a DIYer and craftaholic. My dad dragged me against my will to OSH and Home Depot on the weekends when I was a kid when I would rather stay home and read. He then made it up to me by teaching me how to use power tools, to build things, and to look at the artistic potential of a piece of junk. It unlocked a personal creativity that I’m proud to say that I share with my dad, and his dad, and his dad.
