Motorola's 'Yo' Moto 360 contest is over, and it didn't end well

Moto 360

Motorola ran a contest yesterday on the questionably-useful "Yo" messaging app, with intentions to give away a Moto 360 to 20 winners. The contest has closed today and it seems that Motorola has picked winners... a lot of winners, many of whom actually haven't won anything. According to screenshots heading out on Twitter and Google+, folks are receiving messages from Motorola on Yo indicating that they have won the contest, and when they accept to redeem they're then told there are no more Moto 360s available to give away.

LG G Watch R could retail for 299 euro


On the heels of LG announcing the G Watch R, a German press release for the new smartwatch may have let slip as to just how much you can expect to shell out this fall should you want to get your hands on one. According to the release, the G Watch R will retail for a "recommended" price of 299 euros — a full 100 euros over the cost of the G Watch. As always with these types of devices, regional rates apply. The G Watch R will most likely be more expensive in the U.S. as well, but probably not the straight conversion of $393 in this case.

Google+: How to log out of a secondary account


Part of the "One account, all of Google" thing we wrote about recently is that it brings all of your services and data together on your android device once you log in.

But sometimes, you don't need all of your accounts on all of your apps. Such as Google+. I have a professional account (well, professional-looking account, anyway), and all I do with it is apply for jobs. I don't need it in Google+, I only need it in Gmail, and so, I'm logging it out of Google+. Or maybe your business uses Google Apps, and so you've got a superfluous Google+ account with it, too.

Here's how you can silence that second account forever, without actually deleting it.
