Motorola Left Out Guest Mode and Multi-User Support in Your DROID Turbo’s Lollipop Update

With Android 5.0, Google introduced support for guest accounts and additional users on phones. This is the type of feature that may not be of use to everyone at all times, but it certainly is a welcomed addition to a maturing platform, as it’s there for those who need it. When Google pushed Android 5.1 a few months after 5.0, they didn’t remove the feature. Although, if you are a DROID Turbo owner who recently updated to Android 5.1 (it’s rolling out now to all by the way), you are probably wondering where it is.  (more…)

Moto 360 is Now Just $149

Motorola and Google both dropped the price of the Moto 360 today to $149. That’s a $100 discount and could be a sign that it’s time to kill off all remaining inventory before the new 2nd generation model arrives. We have seen the price jump up and down over recent months, but this price cut has happened without asterisks, footnotes, or banners that mention this as being temporary.

Is the Moto 360 still a good buy at $150, even though it’s about to be replaced? $150 is a $150, so it’s not like we are talking about spending pennies here. With that said, it’s a solid smartwatch for a 1st generation device. It has started to show its age (that damn OMAP processor) recently, but still gets the job done. And hey, it also has Android 5.1.1 now!

Look at it this way – you know what you are getting when you buy a year-old, first-gen product that is about to get replaced by a new, upgraded model. It’ll work, but there could be some jealousy in a few weeks. Then again, the new model won’t be this cheap.
