Wait… the Moto 360 has Wifi built in?

Well put this in the category of “who woulda known?”

Yesterday in talking about the upcoming Wear update, it was mentioned that it was going to have support for Wifi built into the watches.  But at the time we only knew of 1 watch that had that as a feature:  the Sony Smartwatch 3.

But later in the day, Motorola comes out with the revelation that its Moto 360 has had it built in all this time, but no one knew.

Go Ahead, Put Your Phone Down

Hunh.  Go figure.

It’s a good watch (3 of our writers currently sport it on their wrists), and it’s about to get a whole lot better!

We’ve discussed several times the need to sometimes take our online activity away from our phone (which is funny, how it wasn’t that long ago we were talking about moving our internet activities from desktop to ‘mobile’).

As much as we do a lot on the phone, there are some things we just need to sit at an actual keyboard and get some work done.  We have tablets that try to act like laptops and not quite laptops trying to act like tablets…

Let’s look at an actual laptop.  We reviewed the Vivobook recently , but that was an actual Windows laptop, and remember, we here at Android Coliseum are more focused on Android / Google related, so let’s look at the Chromebook variant of the Vivobook.

I’m calling the C423N  the Vivobook variant in Chromebook style because it also has the ‘NanoEdge’ display (slim bezels).

Running at about $500 on Newegg, let’s see how it stacks up.

Reading books is not something that’s on my favorite thing to do list, but having my Android device read it out to me really draws me in. To make things even more interesting, I’m going to show you how to try a different voice when having your device read your book for you.

Google Play Books is an amazing app for Android for reading your favorite novels. Google Play Books manages to capture a person like me who hates to sit and read books, to find my favorite titles and dedicate a little time to read. However, I recently ran into an issue where one of my books disappeared shortly after I had purchased it. No matter how many times I refreshed my library or cleared the cache, it never came back.

After doing some Google searching around and contacting Google Support, I finally found an answer and I wanted to share with you. Searching around forums and such, I realized I wasn’t alone with this issue.
