Briefly: LG smartwatch in development, Asus teases metal box
LG is building their own smartwatch, according to reports. A source of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281744==http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/tech/2013/03/419_132568.html" rel='nofollow'>the</a> <em>Korea Times</em> claims the South Korean electronics manufacturer was developing such a device, though did not reveal if it would operate under Android, Firefox OS, or another operating system. The report follows other claims that <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281745==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/13/apple.could.be.well.into.smartwatch.development/" rel='nofollow'>Apple</a>, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281746==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/22/google.latest.company.linked.to.intelligent.wrist. based.devices/" rel='nofollow'>Google</a>, and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281747==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/19/samsung.exec.admits.smartwatch.deep.in.development/" rel='nofollow'>Samsung</a> are working on their own versions, in order to catch up with the Kickstarter-funded <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281748==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/23/first.500.watches.despatched.delayed.over.airport. paperwork/" rel='nofollow'>Pebble</a> and the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281749==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/20/new.sony.smartwatch.update.brings.new.watch.faces. other.tweaks/" rel='nofollow'>Sony SmartWatch</a>. <br />

<strong>Asus teases square metal device ahead of Sunday reveal</strong><br />
<br />
Asus is teasing a new device it will be officially unveiling tomorrow. A square with a spun-metal appearance is shown on the company's Google+ <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281750==https://plus.google.com/u/1/+ASUS/posts/4kdkFWFCmMR" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">page</a>, with the addition of what appear to be feet suggesting it is not a notebook computer or tablet. <em>Engadget</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281751==http://www.engadget.com/2013/03/22/asus-teaser/" rel='nofollow'>believes</a> it could be the Varidrive media dock, a device shown at CES that combines a DVD combo drive, HDMI, VGA, and Ethernet into a single media source. <br />
