Motorola Moto 360: The Best Android Wear Device Yet

Moto 360 in its inductive wireless charging base

When Android Wear was released there were only two options available, the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch (currently being reviewed).  Unfortunately, those were rather uninspired and were pretty bland design wise.  When Motorola showed its design for a Wear device, it really got a lot of people excited as it is a striking design with a round LCD display under Corning Gorilla Glass.  It really looked like a watch and not some band that so many other wearables have ended up looking like.     Taking a closer look at the watch it becomes very impressive after having used the Samsung Gear Live.  The round LCD

New HTC Phone Competes with Moto G Dual Sim

htc logo

HTC launched its Desire 516 Dual Sim in India with a budget price tag of Rs. 14,200 ($237 USD). It is being seen as an alternative to the higher priced Moto G Dual Sim at Rs. 19,999 ($333 USD) or about the equivalent of $100 less. Motorola customers may be ready to make the change not only because of price, but also because of dissatisfaction with performance. Some units of the Moto G with unregistered IMEI numbers would not work on domestic networks in India. Motorola offered affected customers full refunds, replacements, and credits to their Flipkart account. The HTC Desire 516 claims to run on

Time Warner Cable is rolling out one of the fastest internet speeds available in the country today next month. Our sources have been indicating to us that Time Warner Cable has been in the process of rolling out a 200/300 Mbps service in the San Diego area. They already offer 100 Mbps to new customers, but many of those people will get upgraded to Time Warner Cable’s 300 Mbps service which is one of the fastest in the country. Keep in mind that this 300 Mbps service is still only over cable, so it can’t compete with Google’s 1 Gbps fiber service or the uploads

80 Tech Companies Cooperating with NSA, Claims Wikileaks


Since we’ve had quite a bit of time between Snowden disclosures of NSA activities, it appears as though Wikileaks has gotten ahold of some secret NSA documents that name names as to whom has been cooperating with them. They claim that they have over 80 different companies in their strategic partnerships. The Wikileaks obtained slide states that these 80 “Major Global Corporations” are supporting BOTH missions. However, the document doesn’t specify exactly what both of those missions are, exactly. However, since this slide is labelled as COMINT that means it specifically pertains to communications between people, which may narrow exactly what those missions might be.

Motorola Moto E Dumbphone Killer Arrives for $130

Motorola already changed the world quite a bit when they released the midrange Moto G for $179. Now, they’re trying to change it again by releasing the Moto E for $129 and at the same time release an LTE version of the Moto G for $219. The Moto E is Motorola’s attempt to lure the ‘dumbphone’ crowd into the smartphone era without making them commit to anything major in terms of cost or complexity and making sure it will ship with the latest version of Android. They even started a campaign called #GoodByeDumbphone and tried to promote their launch of the Moto E with the

European Union Seeks to End Mobile Patent Wars

European Union

The European Commission, a part of the European Union, has been handing out warnings to various smartphone manufacturers letting them know that their frivolous lawsuits and patent attacks are not going to be welcome by the European Commission. In two separate statements, the European Commission has reprimanded Motorola Mobility and worked with Samsung (after reprimanding them) in regards to anti-trust behavior pertaining to injunctions on their competitors they have sought based on essential patents. Interestingly enough, both of these cases pertain to 3G and GSM patents that Motorola and Samsung had brought against Apple and requested that there be injunctions against Apple’s products being imported into those

Intel’s license attack on Nvidia is an old “Thank You”

This Monday, Intel filed papers claiming that Nvidia’s four-year chipset license does not apply to Nehalem architecture (Core i3, i5, i7, new Xeons) e.g. that Nvidia has no right in manufacturing chipsets for Intel processors that use integrated memory controller. These news come just after Nvidia enabled SLI on Intel’s X58 chipse6t, including Intel’s own DX58SO motherboard. Given the current state of affairs between the two companies, I was not surprised that Intel is going to oust Nvidia from the chipset market. How Nvidia came into the Intel chipset market is another story – at the time, Intel was seriously hurting with its Prescott marchitecture
