Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

A New XDA Feature: Most-Thanked Widget
On XDA, sometimes you come across a thread with dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of replies. Most normal humans don’t have the time to read through such a large number of replies in order to find the most useful posts. Today, we’re making it much easier for you to find the best replies that get buried within a thread. Introducing the Most-Thanked Widget. It lives in the sidebar (of the 2013 theme) and displays which posts have received the most amount of Thanks. It’s divided into All-Time and Recent to help you find the most timely and useful posts. You can help make the Most-Thanked widget even better by being sure to use the Thanks button whenever you spot a useful post across the XDA Forums.
A few other details:
- Right now, the Most-Thanked widget is only available for logged-in members as we tweak its performance. However, we’ll soon be rolling it out to guests
- The widget ignore post 1, because most people know that post 1 often contains the most useful information; we didn’t want to be redundant
- All members are limited to eight Thanks per day. Use your Thanks wisely!
- The Most-Thanked widget is a work in progress! We’ll be tweaking its logic over the coming weeks and months to make it as useful as possible. Thanks for your patience. Feel free to provide some feedback here
