After Google announced the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android 5.0 Lollipop on Wednesday, confirming that many older devices, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will be updated to its latest mobile operating system in coming weeks, Motorola has also revealed that all of its 2013 and 2014 handsets will be updated to Lollipop.
It’s official: Too much Google Glass is very bad for you. The Guardian notices that a new article published in the journal Addictive Behaviours details treatment for one man’s severe addiction to Google Glass, which led him to experience painful withdrawal symptoms that were likened to withdrawal from alcoholism.
The man had apparently been using Google’s computerized headset for an insane 18 hours a day and would only remove the device while sleeping or showering. He often became irritable and argumentative when he didn’t have the device on and even started having dreams in which he viewed everything through Glass’s tiny little window.
Dr. Andrew Doan, who co-wrote the study on the patient, said that Internet and technology addiction is something that psychologists and neuroscientists are only beginning to understand.
“People used to believe alcoholism wasn’t a problem – they blamed the person or the people around them,” Doan explained to The Guardian. “It’s just going to take a while for us to realize that this is real.”
We’ve heard lots of reports in the past of people removing Google Glass after the device made them feel sick and gave them headaches after wearing it too much but this might be the first time we’ve heard of someone getting flat-out addicted to it..

As you well know, I walked away from Samsung’s IFA event in Berlin very impressed by the company’s latest and greatest phone. It’s solidly made, has an eye-catching screen and feels amazing in hand thanks to the soft textured finish on the back. What’s more, it’s powered by some of the fastest wireless technologies and processors around. And – although mobile/” title=”View all articles about T-Mobile here”>T-Mobile won’t say so officially – it is compatible with 700MHz spectrum currently being tested in various locations across the States.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is the most hotly anticipated phablet of 2014… or at least, it was back when Samsung unveiled the new handset in early September. Now, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus is official and according to Apple, it already represents half of the new dynamic duo that has become Apple’s fastest-selling iPhones of all time. To make matters worse, the new iPhone 6 Plus hits store shelves this coming Friday, September 19th, and while Samsung still hasn’t announced a firm release date for the Note 4, it did confirm launch timing this past weekend that will come later than most fans were hoping.
In a brand new Apple attack ad that was released this past weekend, Samsung used media reactions — including one from BGR — to mock Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The spot is actually a fairly good and effective one, especially compared to the horrible ads Samsung released earlier this month.
Motorola staged an incredible comeback with the Moto X. When we reviewed it last year, we called it “the first iPhone of the Android world,” which leaves some big shoes to fill for its successor. Fortunately, Motorola seems to have defied the odds with its updated Moto X, which we were thoroughly impressed by during our first hands-on impressions with it. Now you can get your hands on a new Moto X of your own as preorders begin opening up this week.
Motorola announced on its blog that preorders for the AT&T version of the new Moto X will open on Tuesday at 12 p.m. ET. A host of other Motorola products, including the Moto X – Pure Edition, Moto Hint wireless earbud and Motorola Turbo Charger will also be available to preorder. Motorola is also expecting the Moto 360 to be back in stock on Tuesday for anyone who missed the first batch, although quantities will be limited, so act fast if you want to own the most popular Android Wear device on the market.
The Moto X features a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p display, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13-megapixel camera, 2300mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Moto X will begin shipping later this month. Motorola has not announced any specific dates yet.
Coming this week on September 4th at 8pm Eastern time is a Interview with Weather Chaser REED TIMMER
