18 Karat Gold Wearables – Apple Watch Brings the Bling

Both Luke and I are back from a much needed vacation. Luke visits Florida and the Big Cat Rescue from episode 34. He got to learn first hand about how they are handling the wildlife and take a few videos through Glass himself.

I headed off to New York via Amtrak. I used the GoPro HERO4 to capture a lot of my video, including Halloween on Times Square.
