Samsung got into the smart watch ring this week, announcing the Galaxy Gear, which will be available in early October. That announcement was expected, but Qualcomm also launched its smart watch, called Toq (rhymes with “walk”). For the Launch of the Week: we look at brand new iPhone app Oyster, called “Netflix for books” by Forbes; Path’s new $15 a year premium version; and Mailpile, an open source, encrypted email service beating its goal on Indiegogo. Molly Wood of CNET and Dave Mathews of mobile software development startup NewAer join us for the This Week in Startups weekly news roundtable.
