SupportMyMoto Campaign for Firmware Updates and Unlocked Bootloaders

Not too long ago, we brought you news of a campaign aiming at having HTC release ICS for the Desire HD. It’s been a long time coming, but there is now a similar effort underway for Motorola. Motorola has often locked down various devices. They made an attempt at peace with a bootloader unlocker tool similar to HTCDev. Unfortunately, that soured quickly when only a few devices were available to unlock. Thankfully the new RAZR i was included in the list of supported devices.

The tension has hit the boiling point and thus, SupportMyMoto was born. Started by XDA Recognized Contributor Lokifish Marz, SupportMyMoto hopes to accomplish its goals through an organized effort including negative reports to the Better Business Bureau, complaints to the FTC, getting in touch with The Consumerist, signings petitions, and so on. The efforts have already taken off, with support from various blogs, as well as developers and contributors.

If you’d like to show your support, sign the petitions, or otherwise get in on the action, you can check out the original thread for more details.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. 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...
