Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?"

Motorola Keys Discovery Was a Hoax
Well, I guess it sometimes happens. There are rather tricky people out there in the world who make this internet of ours a place where you need to ensure that your eyes are not deceiving you.

I guess we should think twice about the validity of something like this when the father of CWM tells you that this is a lie.

I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
