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.

First Custom 4.0.4 ROM Released for the Desire S
There’s nothing quite like getting a new version of Android for a device. Of course, that means that developers go back to the drawing board with a new base to work with to re-release their ROMs on the new version of Android. This would be the case for HTC Desire S, which now has a firs taste of the latest version of ICS. XDA Recognized Developer mdeejay, along with the Virtuous Dev Team, has released VirtuousSaga, first custom ROM with Android 4.0.4. While 4.0.4 only offers iterative changes over its ICS predecessors, this is the first custom ROM to be based on the Saga RUU.
The ROM is seemingly stable for those who have tried it, offering no known issues and all the main features working. The ROM also features a host of features. In addition to being deodexed, zipaligned, BusyBox-ed, and pre-rooted, the ROM also features a few bonuses users are sure to appreciate. This includes the removal of all spyware, along with most of the HTC bloatware. For anyone looking to try out ICS on his or her Desire S, this is definitely worth a shot.
Download links, screen shots, a full feature list, and more can be found in the original thread.[Thank you to shrome99 for the tip!]
