Hey, a smartwatch that actually looks like a watch? Nice.

Michigan cheeps! I have two more library programs coming up, including a new one on cord-cutting! First, I'll be at the Warren Public Library (Civic Center) tomorrow, April 9, at 6:30 p.m. The topic: My favorite ways to save money when shopping online.
