Google’s initial plans for Project Ara modular smartphone concept were ambitious, with the company hoping to allow consumers to swap out their displays, processor and even RAM. However, “refinements” made to the program over the course of its development led to prototypes that had all of those aforementioned components integrated into the base smartphone, greatly diminishing the usefulness of the modular concept. After years of development, Google finally pulled the plug on Project Area in early September. According to the folks at Motorola, Google’s decision to eventually abandon the endeavor... Read more...
Motorola righted many of the wrong of the first-generation Moto 360 with the second-generation model, which was launched in late 2015. However, some still weren’t happy with the $349 staring price tag for the non-Sport model.

Well, if the price was the only thing holding you back from purchasing a Moto 360, Verizon hopes to erase that doubt. The nation’s largest wireless carrier is discounting the smartwatch from...
