Dick Tracy Lives

Microsoft has announced a Dick Tracy-like watch that automatically sets itself to local time and provides local weather forecasts. The wearer can also get their personal calendar and instant messages from their PC.

One little publicized feature is the watch transmits an electrical impulse to the wearer's brain causing them to double over in pain if they contemplate using a non-Microsoft product. The company's lawyers have reviewed the feature and are confident it doesn't violate any antitrust laws because other manufacturers are free to built a similar device.
