The first product in the hWear line of smart-digital garments by Israel’s HealthWatch Technologies created a buzz at the recent annual meeting of the American Telemedicine Association and is expected to be marketed as an FDA Class II medical device by the end of 2014.

What is amazing about the App Smartphone world is that just when you think there can’t be any more apps that can take a simple concept and make it better, companies like Uber drive will change your mind.

A friend of mine who was in-between jobs asked if I have ever used Uber. I thought this was a conference bridge product or German for something amazing.
