Moto360 Battery Dramatically Improves with Update

If you're a fan of the design style of the Moto 360 Watch, but the battery life just wasn't quite enough, things have changed with the latest software update. Motorola has performed some magic and now gives you a much more efficient device that should last you much, much longer (relatively speaking). Before the update, the Moto 360 would barely get you through a 6am - 10pm day (long day), but now users are reporting having almost half the battery remaining. Now these things are starting to get interesting.

The anticipated smartwatch hit the market back on September 5th and within a few hours had sold out on both the Play Store and at Best Buy. However, within days of its release reports started emerging about a significant issue with the battery. According to users the battery simply did not last for a full day’s (normal) usage and this impacted greatly on the perception of the device. The battery issue seemed to be even more prevalent if the Ambient Display feature was activated.

PC sales up 4%, still not dead

For the past decade we keep hearing that the PC is dead, yet last year PC sales saw a 4.2% increase in the US last year (9% in Europe). Even in the midst of a tablet and smartphone crazed market, PC's have managed to hold strong in their sales and actually increase. The day when the "PC" dies might not be too far off, but for the time being it doesn't look like it is going anywhere. Gigaom has the full story.

Gartner’s latest figures show that PCs are no write-off — it seems they still hold a lot of attraction for many consumers and businesses, though not all vendors are benefiting.
