Firefox's stable release channel for Android has bumped up to version 36.0 after spending about a month in beta. The most notable change in this update is a completely revamped tablet interface, which better uses larger screens and makes the app look more like its desktop counterpart.

'OK Google, what's the weather like?'


Weather is important, but sometimes you don't need a full two week forecast with barometric pressure and the exact phase of the lunar cycle. Sometimes, you just need to know if it's warm or chilly outside. Sometimes, you want to know the weather, but you just don't have your hands free.


Sometimes, you just need Google.

Motorola shares some back story on development of the new Moto E (2015)

Posted: 27 Feb 2015 12:43 PM PST

Moto_E_2015_Slanted_Motorola_Logo_Camera_Lens_Featured_Large


Earlier this week when we received the new Moto E (2015), we received a device that was very similar to its predecessor, yet different at the same time. We noted that externally the new Moto E (2015) looked almost identical to the first generation of the device with most of the changes being in software features and internal hardware. Motorola has taken some time on their blog to explain how they ended up incorporating the changes that they did in this latest smartphone. According to Motorola President Rick Osterloh,



"We designed the Moto E with the idea that people shouldn't have to pay a lot to join the connected world and experience it at its best."



Probably the biggest thing that Motorola says they learned from customer feedback was how much people enjoy taking pictures, especially selfies. This led to two additions to the Moto E (2015) – the front facing camera and the Quick Capture feature. Both of these features are popular on the high-end Moto X models and were noticeably absent from the Moto E. So Motorola decided to infuse the Moto E with some of their "premium innovation." That same thinking led to the inclusion of dual accelerometers in the Moto E (2015) so that features like Moto Display and Motorola Assist could be added to the device. Like Quick Capture, these features are popular selling points for the Moto X and Motorola decided it made sense to push these down the chain to make their mid-tier line of smartphones more useful. While Motorola is not to the point where custom designed smartphones are an option for the Moto E (2015) like with the Moto X line, the availability of the colorful Motorola Bands is a way to emulate that kind of customization. The six available colors were designed to be easy to swap out so users could make the device more personal. Motorola points out that the bands have ridges to help provide a better grip as well, so there is a functional element that joins the form element. This focus on the physical presentation of the device extended to other details like the finish around the camera bezel and texture on the buttons. Although the device may be inexpensive, Motorola still wanted users to enjoy a premium experience. source: Motorola

Huawei posts ads for unannounced Android Wear watch at Barcelona Airport

Posted: 27 Feb 2015 11:23 AM PST







As journalists and industry members alike start hitting Barcelona Airport for MWC 2015, they'll be greeted by a large number of ad placements from Huawei for a watch that has yet to be announced. The "Huawei Watch," as the ad calls it, is circular and shown off in three distinct styles on the billboard – silver with a silver mesh band, gold with a brown leather band, and black with a black sports band.


The billboards read "Timeless design. Smart within.", with a sophisticated-looking model wearing a nice suit and the silver watch. The "timeless" portion of the pitch refers to the classic design – this is a round watch, of course – and "impeccable craftsmanship," while the "smart" portion lists state-of-the-art wearable technology and Android Wear as features.

Google Cancels Pwnium, The Competition For Finding Vulnerabilities In Chrome, In An Effort To Improve Security [You Read That Correctly]

Google is cancelling the upcoming iteration of Pwnium, the competition they have sponsored regularly over the past several years. Pwnium has been very useful for Google in protecting Chrome and Chrome OS, because the entire event is about finding holes in the Chromium project. Why did they cancel it, then? For the sake of security!


Okay okay, that sounds pretty counter-intuitive. Instead, I'll explain it the way Google does. Pwnium isn't cancelled, it is going on starting now and until the end of time.

MLB At Bat allows users to read news, track stats, and watch live games from around the league. Premium features are available for $2.99 per month or $19.99 per year. Subscribers of MLB TV receive premium features at no extra cost.
