    So last year on kickstarter I got in on the pebble watch early. I saw it, loved it, and became one of the first backers. I thought it was cool, but I had no idea what I was gonna do with it (I have a watch problem).

    if you haven't seen it check out the kickstarter page, here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/597507018/pebble-e-paper-watch-for-iphone-and-android

    or their website here: http://getpebble.com/

    They haven't released their SDK (software developers kit) yet, but when they do it will be exciting to see what kind of apps are created.
    Right now, however, there is a program on android called "pebble notifier" that gives you the ability to add other apps to the list of apps that can send information to the pebble watch.

    With that said, I was able to add my Tripit app to the list of apps, thus giving Tripit the ability to send notifications for my trips to my pebble, thus eliminating the need for me to pull out my phone everytime something changes on my itinerary. I am able to scroll through the notification, and decide if it's important, or just dismiss it.

    I'm sure there will be other apps that make things like this more efficient and/or robust, but that won't be until after the SDK is released (supposedly in mid-April). Anybody else have the pebble? Any other cool/travel related uses?
