Leaks usually come from industry insiders, but every once in a while we come across one that’s just sitting there in plain sight on a major retailer’s website. This time around it was Motorola’s Moto 360 turn to be revealed complete with specs, price, and features by none other than Best Buy. The listing has since been removed, but luckily a screenshot remains and we can see the upcoming Android Wear smartwatch in all of its splendor thanks to it. Most of this coincides with previous rumors so we’re not learning a whole lot of new details here, but this listing is very useful regardless because it helps confirm what most sources have been speculating about the Moto 360.

The smartwatch will come equipped with a 1.5-inch backlit LCD touch screen running at 320 x 290 resolution and packing 205 pixels per inch. On the hardware side, the Moto 360 will be powered by a Texas Instruments processor, although no other details are available at this time. Some other specs include 512 RAM, li-io battery, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartwatch will be compatible with devices running on Android 4.3 KitKat or later and can be synced with them via Bluetooth 4.0. We also find out from Best Buy that the Moto 360 is waterproof up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes and comes with features such as voice activation, vibration alert, heart-rate monitor, and pedometer.

Motorola’s upcoming Android Wear smartwatch has a stainless-steel case, plastic back and leather band. The device will be available for purchase starting at $250 according to the retailer. Best Buy doesn’t say anything about a shipping date, but we’ve learned recently that Google has sent out emails to I/O participants who opted for a Moto 360 back in June. The email suggests that the device will launch on September 4th. Furthermore, Motorola already sent invites for an event scheduled to take place on the very same day so it’s very likely that the smartwatch will be launched on September 4th and start shipping shortly after.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
